Project Ideas for Double Crank

Mon, 22 May 2017

I’m putting together a download of ideas that you could make using the double cranks as a starting point. My initial plan is produce a printable zine or booklet but that might change as I progress. Do you have an idea for a character or characters that could be powered via the double cranks mech? Leave a comment or drop me an email.
