    Can a piston like that work as a shock absorber? Unlike most weapons platforms, this one tends to stomp around in a none-too-gentle fashion.

    A week Of Detailing:

    A week of detailing and while gratifying that so much was accomplished now that it is all back together it doesn't seem like all that much.

    This first image shows the Yoke detail where the hydraulics will mount on the arm extenders.

    Pretty much the same shot from a lower angle.

    A quarter view showing the front yoke arm detail that required so much time for the actual amount of dressing up required.

    A 3/4 view of the left interior to show where the three maintenance/engineering decks will be and the reactor deck. I haven't worked that out yet.

    Finally a right 3/4 view showing off the weapon arm rack gear to it's best advantage and the sloppiness of my mancave/workshop.

    Finally:

    Now that the yoke is roughed out I can devote time to the interior levels of the engineering decks. A spot dear to my heart as I am a frustrated engineer or at least pretend to be on the internet.

    Below is the slide out deck of the first engineering level cut and ready to insert into the lower hull.

    And that deck temporarily in place for adjustment.

    I plan to have the Fusion Reactor on these levels as in my Warlord which will take up the lion's share of the space. There will be one sub deck, three engineering decks and an egress to the command bridge (head) plus the altar and various religious accoutrements to the Omnissiah.

    Jeez What a Mess:

    All the sub components are just locked in place with interlocking tabs and while I know where the pieces actually go, the stability of the structures is tenuous at best.

    Below we see the inner levels decks 2 through 4 deck 1 being done earlier this Summer. Decks 3 and 4 frame the yoke and have yet to receive their floors.

    I have not worked out how they will be removable and how the neck will intersect with the third deck flooring. Some sort of bull nosed staircase I imagine. It will all look rather techie and decadent as befitting a titan interior but I have plans for an altar structure with attendant priests as in the Warlord.

    Above we see looking down at deck 2 and the two angled walls that will support the yoke and underside of the superstructure deck again rather sparsely connected without glue or screws so it all appears quite a jumble at the moment.

    The side view looking rather cleaner.

    With the superstructure deck reinstalled the whole thing begins to tie together (Note that the jaw has disconnected for the visor) but all the rest of the components locking into their respective locations with barely a millimeter discrepancy that I can measure. Much of the precision purely by luck I assure you.

    And the right side view of this hodgepodge.
