A Box of Inspiration

I am always looking for inspiration. I look to others projects, videos, blogs and anything else I find interesting. Another way I find inspiration is spending time not working on a project, but on small details like gear assemblies and linear actuators. If I build something I like, I set it aside in a small tray that I store out of the way. It's a great way to solve problems when I just can't get a good answer. If I am stuck, I pull out the inspiration box.

What I have shown is just a few I currently have on my building table. At times when I am stuck, I completely pull myself away from a project and work just on inspirations.

  1. Looks like you are on your way to making a sequal to Tora No Maki! Pity the images don't enlarge (can't click on them in Firefox and IE lets me click but nothing happens)

  2. I did get some ideas from that book, but there is just something about being able to hold it in my hand that I like. Seeing it is one thing, but building it and having it on hand is necessary.

  3. Couldn't agree more, but I have so many ideas and half built things lying around I can hardly find the space to build anything ;D
