    Re: Blackadder's Attempt To Build a Lucius Patten Imperator Titan 'Invictus'

    Worked and Worked:

    But so little actually visibly accomplished. I began this project telling myself I would not make the same mistakes I made with my Warlord but Damn! it's coming out so good that I keep retrofitting more and more interior so I'm back to building inside out again. I had hoped to start on the chest and shoulders by now.

    So here's the Landspeeder cockpit that will eventually fit into the head which has a floor ready to receive the cockpit but is just a slab of angled 0.040 sheet styrene so really nothing to see yet. But trust me it is inside.

    http://i.imgur.com/jAQSZjW.jpg


    A little more visible are the cheek canisters whatever purpose they serve other than clutter the face up and therefore add esoteric detail.

    http://i.imgur.com/rsv6BnD.jpg


    I notched out the canisters to mount on the secondary cheek armour which is where I am now in the construction so before I glue the on why not take some teaser images to tantalize my loyal readers.

    Hopefully I'll have more progress to show next time.

    BTW, just noticed the floor of the cockpit is visible in the image directly above but as I said it's just a sheet of thin styrene so whoopdeedoo!

    'adder, if you are using marine legs for your crewmen, I highly suggest you look into the cupola gunner from a Dark Angels Vengeance/Darkshroud Land Speeder. It's got a very nice bit for a single set of seated marine legs, top left in the pic

    Pure Gold:

    Gold is where you find it as the old saw goes and you find it in the least likely places. I was in a variety store a few days ago and found these Hair bands 4.76 MM (3/16 inch) diameter that are ideal for the canister conduit.

    http://i.imgur.com/WrBYXrW.jpg


    I felt the image conduit aesthetically too large of a diameter.

    http://i.imgur.com/UYsIE1r.jpg


    I have used these before on my Warlord and my Warhounds but those were only 3,0 MM (1/8 inch).

    http://i.imgur.com/rGefJtx.jpg


    If I could find 6.3 MM (1/4 inch) that would be also of use. I'll keep on looking.

    http://i.imgur.com/h4c8TLk.jpg


    Whilst we have the head apart again I can show the cockpit which is coming along quite well.

    http://i.imgur.com/G760IsE.jpg


    Working on the interior is much easier if you can remove it and reinstall at will so I work with a detachable floor.

    It also makes it easier to paint if I ever get that far.

    Like the hair band idea, might borrow that one!! As I have 3 girls running round the house there's no shortage of those here

    The Fearful Symmetry:

    As most of you know I rarely measure when producing my work. Therefore symmetry is a problem for me as revealed in the image below. The face shield is canted a degree or 2 counterclockwise which is readily apparent in this head on image.

    http://i.imgur.com/il8GXeZ.jpg


    Of course no one will be standing full dead on eye level with the construct so I may let this discrepancy slide.

    The Low angle view seems to hide the flaw.

    http://i.imgur.com/befX1AH.jpg


    Now for the crux of this discourse; the conduit run to the ear pieces.

    http://i.imgur.com/W69lm36.jpg


    Magnets hold the ear disc on with a fender washer to take up the gap.

    http://i.imgur.com/hKHuYWM.jpg


    And a 5 inch scale for reference to the size of this, seeming, never ending construct..

    Do you think they would let me post how to build a scratchbuilt Titan if they hire me ? Probably not. besides those guys are artists, I'm just a copier.

    Aha! Ha! Ha!

    Fun and games boys and girls, fun and games. Thanks to an andante admirer I've a new direction to follow gleaning the best from all info available. I've managed to begin the mid-waist decking and observation platform.

    http://i.imgur.com/Lo2sTXK.jpg


    I truly want a railed promenade deck on this beastie and a fully articulated neck as well so letting you all in on the ground floor of this is a bit daring especially if I fall short but this is how I work; off the cuff.

    http://i.imgur.com/ljCWQH3.jpg


    We'll see how far I'm off the mark in a few days.

    Mid Waist Deck:

    So today I started with the mid waist deck and already I have an improvement.

    http://i.imgur.com/CkT8L9E.jpg


    Unfortunately after I glued in the walls but I came to the realization quickly enough to remedy the anomaly.

    http://i.imgur.com/qQz0lrU.jpg


    I'll leave to you to guess what I found wrong but suffice it to say the construct lacks panache.

    http://i.imgur.com/SWmCG0P.jpg


    I'll have it corrected tomorrow so you'll see if you guessed right.

    Ciao.

    This Will Happen:

    I've never felt so confident in a project as in this one.

    http://i.imgur.com/o1XeD88.jpg


    The mistake of last night bore fruit in that I did not have to rebuild the turn table piece.

    http://i.imgur.com/NFr0iQZ.jpg


    Even the Mid-Waist Platform is the right width for the hips

    But Lord please don't let it be that the head is too small

    adder! I know you love the plain metallic look... but that something this big will be a serious challenge to paint. Have you considered painting your sub-assemblies as you go? IMO, I think you'll get a better and more interesting result that way

    Agreed, you'd think in real (40K) life they must paint the parts separately.

    First Engineering Deck:

    Situated below the reactor bay and the command deck this room contains (maybe) the electronic and navigation equipment plus the Adeptus Mechanicus altar and tech priests. I'll figure it out later once I get the other decks laid out.

    http://i.imgur.com/9ncdXOy.jpg


    Below are the inner walls of the deck and the center reactor core.

    http://i.imgur.com/SQAo709.jpg


    And the deck as it stacks up on the titan pelvis block again subject to change as i am not sure how much detail I should add to the top of the pelvic block.

    Re: Blackadder's Attempt To Build a Lucius Patten Imperator Titan 'Invictus'

    Hanging Knees:

    That's what they are called in shipbuilding They support the deck beams and are usually curved. In this case I shall leave these flat until I see how the rest of the detail manifests itself.

    http://i.imgur.com/5ZSdeIM.jpg


    Since I seriously have no plan at this stage other than the black and white video captures and this beautifully rendered 3D image I shall be taking what I deem best from both.

    http://i.imgur.com/jxlQ99A.jpg


    I changed the rear panel from round to flat so I can show the interior space.

    http://i.imgur.com/GIUsTFa.jpg


    I do like the idea of the railing and balcony and will try to work it into the design just so i can display my Tech Priests.

    A Broken Precedent.

    I don't usually do this but it seems such a 'gimme' that I am running it by without testing the concept.

    http://i.imgur.com/hxXUwqf.jpg


    I want the neck to be movable on both axes' up /down and side to side and I went to great lengths to accomplish that with my Warlord.

    http://i.imgur.com/05bFt6y.jpg


    With the Emperor Titan I have a lot more room so I'm trying something different. A 3 inch to 2 inch PVC reducing coupling which gives a 20 up/down and side to side flexibility.

    http://i.imgur.com/gDjQ7cZ.jpg


    In the coming days I'll show how this works out but in the meantime I intend to show the interim work for better or worse because once done it will be difficult to reproduce.
