Seeing how no one else picked up the concept I'll do it myself. Any and all advice is welcome.
Now, before you flip your stack and start ridiculing me for this monstrosity, it is still very very very early on in stages. So far just got a primative bumpmap and a seamless scratch texture. By posting it as a WiP I somehow instill myself with confidence to finish it through to the end.
In time gonna find some wood references and some tarnished metal sheets and try and fix up something that doesn't look like clay.
