Something like that, I built it while waiting for other bits to set/ dry.
They only have 5 or 6 bits, so assembly is a breeze, not much cleaning up was required as the casting were pretty good.

You've had your own little corner in the dark side for quite a while now.

Too many fiddly bits on the dark side for my liking, the  carpet monster would have a field day

Riveting continues ad infinitum, or that's what it feels like.

I take it that the rivets are bits of rod cut up and glued on. Would I be correct? .....and whats with the nipples then, where are they from?

The nipples are some headlamps that I cast when making a model T Ford, they will serve as machine gun positions, or may some other type of weapon, who knows with Steampunk?
Yes the rivets are rod cut up and stuck on, I have a rivet making machine but it is not great.
