    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/voFYSFG.jpg


    Pretty much the same shot from a lower angle.

    https://i.imgur.com/QJnu0Rn.jpg


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

    https://i.imgur.com/4tELqEZ.jpg


    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/JqiMoam.jpg


    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.


    https://i.imgur.com/ElZ4BTy.jpg


    And that deck temporarily in place for adjustment.

    https://i.imgur.com/TMargRP.jpg


    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.

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

    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/yVbqA9Z.jpg


    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 techish and decadent as befitting a titan interior but I have plans for an altar structure with attendant priests as in the Warlord.

    https://i.imgur.com/hJtQNPy.jpg


    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/nnHxaDO.jpg


    The side view looking rather cleaner.

    https://i.imgur.com/fr57fNz.jpg


    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/zUVImBa.jpg


    And the right side view of this hodgepodge.

    A Series Of Interlocking Components:

    It took a bit of doing but all the major components lock together to go from this .........

    https://i.imgur.com/I4QDhMm.jpg


    To this .......

    https://i.imgur.com/S7OFsf2.jpg


    in about as much time as it takes (me) to type this. (Not being the world's fastest typist.)

    https://i.imgur.com/0OHMIvq.jpg


    So the entire model thus far can be disassembled for painting, upgrading and repaired at a whim.

    https://i.imgur.com/lBdAkHK.jpg


    Now that the superstructure deck support is locked into place I can continue with the interior with the intermediate deck roughed in in the immediate above view.

    https://i.imgur.com/f9Ho6TC.jpg


    With the deck removed you can visualize the two story engineering compartment.

    I think this is jawdropping ! And judging from some posts above, so does your titan

    A very clever ideato make it modular, you think of everything dont you, Mr Adder ?

    Yeah, haha very funny, The head is modular also and breaks down into about 8 pieces. I still have yet to finish the cockpit interior so the jaw pops out now and again and sometimes I fail to notice it.

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

    Desperation Is the Mother Of Invention:

    I won't boor you with the details of how I made these plugs. The first view should be self explanatory

    https://i.imgur.com/TlWNUhX.jpg


    Instead I'll boor you with the why.

    I've got these two side supports that will ultimately hold up the tophamper

    [BTW I weighed this beast this weekend and excluding the vise he weighs 12 pounds, (5.44311 Kilograms),(0.857143 stone), Twelve Pounds of STYRENE!]

    Anyway that much weight will surely spread these walls especially since I will not be gluing them in place (I hope) so the problem is how do I lock them in place.

    Once again the waffle light panel to the rescue.

    https://i.imgur.com/N29ODWw.jpg


    I made plugs that will fit snugly into the waffle recesses.

    https://i.imgur.com/heklFqn.jpg


    Naturally it would have been too much to expect that they would line up perfectly with the overhead deck so I attached a fudge factor plate to compensate for the misalignment. and glued the plug to the top of the side wall. (I won't go in to how exacting this was; especially for the first one )

    https://i.imgur.com/uhZpelq.jpg


    Three more to go and I'll display the finished assembly.

    Fallen Into Place:

    The four aligning plugs installed.

    https://i.imgur.com/rkcrhfD.jpg


    Sorry for what appears to be repetitive images but there are the subtlest differences that entailed a lot of work that I feel I must apprise anyone following this thread aware. The aligning of the upper deck is most important for subsequent structures otherwise the model will become lopsided and sloppy.

    https://i.imgur.com/FGxgtbZ.jpg


    Note in particular the centering of the weapon yoke in the slot. Now that the sides are secure that arm is correctly brought to center.

    https://i.imgur.com/NXLTpPz.jpg


    Now that the side panels are locked into place with the upper deck and the chest area I can proceed with the building of the interior and the rear of the titan.

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

    A Weekend's Effort:

    Aside from my official duties I managed to find time to add some detail to this beast and attempt to refine a vexing discrepancy in my calculations. Note the adjustment of the cylinder trunnions.

    https://i.imgur.com/uqAkjMb.jpg


    I still have to mount the magnets that will secure the piston end of the assemblies but I know I shall have to adjust the gap between the piston head and the armament yoke; hence the cutouts.

    https://i.imgur.com/WwKrLCw.jpg


    I still question the necessity for these hydraulics as they corrupt the clean lines of the model but I'll install the for the time being just to remain true to the prototype. The work will not be in vain as these cylinders can easily be adapted for the legs or ankles.

    WhyLookLikeThis:

    https://i.imgur.com/WwKrLCw.jpg


    When You.....Can Look.....Like This:

    https://i.imgur.com/qO5Tq20.jpg


    I wasn't satisfied how the piston/snubbers/whatever, detracted from the sweeping elegance of the armament yoke yet rather than discard the whole concept I decided to play around a little.....

    Aesthetically this looks better to me.

    https://i.imgur.com/NJAn2og.jpg


    When you are going to hydraulic systems that serve no purpose, at least they should look good; Right?

    Please Yourself and You Please Everyone

    As the say'n goes. There seems a bit of controversy about my departure for the iconic 3D prototype but I think this looks much better.

    https://i.imgur.com/jXTdCXw.jpg


    The side panels make more sense with this arrangement and it allows for a maintenance observation balcony that I think will add interest to the model plus the grander of the weapons mount yoke is undiminished.

    https://i.imgur.com/KVnXAwb.jpg


    The dual actuators now have a purposeful appearance for what ever that may be.

    https://i.imgur.com/FbDGRw4.jpg


    And disappear into the yoke to accomplish it.

    A Man A Plan

    Whom I kidding, it's all serendipity.......

    I've worked long and hard to reach this point this evening but these six images make it worth it. Every thing is falling into place including the three story engineering compartment with it's 15 foot ceilings.

    https://i.imgur.com/4dmRD2w.jpg


    The fusion reactor will take up two of those decks.

    The lower deck will open onto the platform under the head for the Adeptus Mechanicus Priests to supervise the battle a hundred feet above the fray

    The upper balcony and promenade with egress through the blast doors to the cockpit

    Below another shot of the lower deck for scale

    https://i.imgur.com/8KfEK7n.jpg


    The intermediate command deck where the tactical computers &etc will be displayed.

    https://i.imgur.com/K5PU7Ah.jpg


    Finally an overall view of the three decks

    https://i.imgur.com/mSlGEbX.jpg


    It's going to take a lot of bitz to clutter up all this space.

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

    It's been some time since I posted but I have been working; mainly on the interior which must be done before I design the back structure. So from where we left off I had just made the Command deck balcony so here is the forward bulkhead complete with blast doors, and pocket passage doors to the cockpit.

    https://i.imgur.com/20QX1Yb.jpg


    This design is a copy of the Warlord Blast door assembly slightly enlarged and more functional plus I had a lot more room to work with so the design is more refined.

    https://i.imgur.com/SvqDEBx.jpg


    It's amazing how much more roomy this Emperor is compared to the Warlord.
