I'm kind of into steampunk at the moment & I wanted to re-imagine Doctor Who's 'tin dog' as a steampunk creation, but I also wanted to prove that it doesn't really matter what materials you use to make something.

The main body is an empty spaghetti sauce jar and the rest of it is a mixture of cardboard, polymer clay, earring backs, and parts from a toy car. The wheels are cheapo thread spools that I got three for a dollar at the dollar store. Here he is from the other side.

I plan on entering him in a model show next weekend at the local sci-fi convention.
Thanks for looking.

He's adorable... I think he needs ears off the top of his head, but that's just me.

Well done. Cheesy

He's really cute!  Sort of makes me think of Doctor 11 and the inside of his tardis. Good luck with the model show!

Love him! I agree that it's cool that he's made out of junk, but doesn't look like it. I like the wave thing on his side, nice touch.
