    Coming along really nicely! Gilding the eagles (and certain other details) will surely make them stand out. Adding further detail, like trim and other minor surface enhancements (plus the five million rivets this thing will no doubt have), will also draw attention to less visible areas.

    Clutchin' At Straws:

    I've got this huge space between the deck and the Main Arm Support Yoke that has to be filled with some awesome Titiany stuff. So right now I am experimenting with Cod Bitz to try to com up with a unique techy/churchy facade that covers three floors of the interior behind the head.

    This is the first attempt and I'm not too pleased with the huge doors.

    It seems to diminish the over all size of the figures compared to the Titan.

    Stepping back the effect isn't as bad but I need a rational for the oversized doors and as I type this the Adeptus Mechanicus Tech Priest Dominus' are just the ticket and the Belisarius Cawl can use the double front doors

    Ha! Problem is solved.

    I planned to have the two outsized clergy overseeing the battle from the balcony vantage point all along and purely by accident I made the way they can access the balcony. Talk about serendipity.

    That works well. You might use some of the CoD Mechanicum walls around tech areas too, in particular these two wall pieces: https://postimg.org/image/dg99oed49/

    Skinning:

    So it's time to skin the yoke. A straightforward application of 0.040 inch/ 1 MM styrene to cover all the internal structure.

    It takes a lot of styrene glue and a few gluing clamps but other than leaving an excess of styrene for slight variations in the surface, all the gluing takes is a bit of care and patience.

    When dried sand off the excess with sanding blocks and files.

    Worthy of note, I don't use green stuff, it makes for a sloppy looking interim stage so instead I just use Thin Cement and as I sand, the styrene dust settles in the cracks and the cement dissolves it so when dry the crack/blemish is repaired with the same material as the model.

    I Don't Care:

    I'm posting it anyway. I'm trying to rationalize the second level engineering where I plan to have the reactor and some sort of mumbo jumbo altar to solicit favor from the Machine God.

    The first level replete with appropriate iconic bells and whistles but the second level were the real work be done has a more utilitarian aspect.

    Yeah I know I have to move the hinges and the door at present leads to a ruddy great step down but all that will be addressed.

    What is of most significance is that purely by happenstance I managed to get the yoke in precisely the proper position to bisect the side panel perfectly.

    Too bad I can't manage to apply that precision in real life.
