ALPHADROME ROBOTS AND SPACE TOYS

"Chrome Zone" Rocket ship.

The Toyman

An early morning start at a local swap meet netted me this fantastic steampunk type rocket ship. It started out in life as a 1920,s. Electro Lux vacuum cleaner, but has ended up as a very impressive Flash Gordon type rocket. I've added the serial number and given it a good clean and now it's ready to display.....when I find a space!

Noel I love that. Great find.

I think it's got the Fireball XL5  look

Wow, I like it! Just enough age to make it look like it has traveled the galaxy...a fantastic job!

Very cool. Where is the "Chrome Zone" part from? Or did the artist add that?

Most impressive, Noel. And you can still clean the floor with it.

Yeah; after he cleans the floor of dust and dirt, then he can scour the galaxy of scum and villany. :biggrin:

Thanks guys, I'm still on the trail of its creator and I may have found him, look how similar this one is, it's even the same vacuum cleaner! Andy, the Chrome Zone looks to have been added at the build stage.

great rocket and pilot. Those old vacuums make great bodies. Mine was made from a Royal.
