Timberwolf
Lumbering Lumberjack
About this creation
Steampunk is a field I have always enjoyed, and a contest over at Kaminoan's place was reason enough to build something steampowered. So after much trouble designing the feet, I settled on a design and went from there. I didn't win, (some thing used for reaching "cookie jars" won instead, go figure) but I got a great-lookin' MOC out of the deal.
In 1870, there was a great logging boom in Canada, and hundreds of burly woodcutters raced for a chance to earn their fortune. But work moved at a slow rate, and the logging companies needed a device that could cut down trees much quicker. Soon, the Timberwolf was invented, a 14 foot high bipedal walker armed with a grasping claw, advanced cooling system and a powerful swinging locomotive. Capable of cutting a tree with very few strikes and lifting it's own weight (1.2 tons), the Timberwolf became a favorite of lumberjacks and their employers.

The back, with a nice view of the engine and boiler. Note the gears on the legs and arms.

The arms. One arm has a grasping claw, while the other sports a powerful axe.

These gears actually kinda worked, if you turned them the legs would kinda move.

The feet. In the beginning (back in 1955... Sorry, I had an AC/DC moment), I had a lot of trouble getting them to look right.


The back of the engine opens to reveal a steam gauge. Here it is closed...


And opened.


Here it is doing what it does best, chopping trees. Skilled riders can chop as many as 15 trees in an hour.The claw in action.

As stated before, the claw can support trees weighing a little over a ton.

Joe, I can't give you the complete instructions, but I might be able to help you on different parts. Drop me a line, my email address can be found on my homepage.

Everyone listens to the guy with the giant axe. But you may have to swing it around a bit, first. The Mech is real eyecandy.

Nice feet design and the boiler right behind the driver would help keep him warm on those frosty Canadian mornings. God bless Canadia!
