The Cheetah Couriers.

Written by Thomas Baekdal | Monday, July 06, 2009

Andrew Chase has done it again. Created one of the most amazing mechanic art in the whole universe. And I am not exaggerating. This time it is a giant cheetah, and I am quite simply blown away.

The cheetah measures 24" high (61cm) and 50" nose to tail (127cm) and weighs about 40 lbs. She took about 60 hours, spaced over 10 weeks time to build. She's constructed out ofthe usual electrical conduit, transmission parts, and 20 gauge steel.

The cheetahs are part of the underworld ecosystem in the "Timmy" universe. They are couriers of small objects (a sort of steampunk FedEx) and also run in the treadmills. Other 'characters' include the Giraffe and the Elephant.

And I know what you are all asking? How flexible is 20 gauge steel? Well, take a look at this:
