Look at this beauty, the perfect toy for tinkerer and their children, a Russian-built RC Steam Tank:
I wonder how much it would take to build a life-size version of this thing. Well, one could use an old steam-powered locomotive as a basis, I guess.
On a different note: I have reently received another review copy of a steampunk/sci-fi novel: Android Karenina. The review will go up together with my first article of Neil Gaiman week, so June 7th will be a two-article day. I pitty the fact that I have never read Tolstoy’s original Anna Karenina, I guess it would have added to my (already immense) enjoyment of Android Karenina.
I only wanted to mention this, because this blog post started with something else that came out of Russia…
