I ended up modeling and modeling and this is what came out. Lots of cloners, some loft nurbs and my poor computer trying to handle everything. I like it, although I think it will look better textured.
Early test of an idea using wires all bundled together. Maybe an engine? Or a cannon?

Made a little speaker model with loft nurbs and cloners. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but it's not bad I guess.
