A Crash Test Dummy:

Is building this Titan.

I wish I could blame this on the cat or something but instead I am making inroads into stupidity.

I was going to show the interior with the positioning plugs I have been working on for the past few days but instead here we see a pile of rubble which was the inner levels of the interior.

Fortunately its not all as bad as it seems in spite of falling the same 5 feet again in much the same trajectory as the previous fall a couple of days ago although the computer chair did not intervene to soften the mishap this time so a few items actually did break this time.

As I type the glue is drying and most of the damage is repaired (I'm getting good at it by now)

Anyway, with hope, I'll be able to photograph the aligning plugs later today.

Quarter Galleries:

For lack of a better term; this is the area I'll be working on

The images are pretty much self explanatory; I'll be framing out the "Quarter Galleries" with cut Florescent light panel waffle diffusers purchased at Home Depot.

The panels are made of very hard and brittle styrene plastic but are plenty durable for framing and is cheap compared to hobby shop styrene. About 4 feet long and about 2 feet wide metric users can do the math....wink.gif

The Ground Floor:

Actually about one hundred fifty feet above the ground but what the hey. The superstructure of this Titan is what makes it unique and I've been putting it off long enough trying to come up with something earthshaking. Try as I might I just cannot top Joazzz2's incredible architecture so I'll just copy that so first the gatehouse battlements sometimes called the barbican.

Never Be Afraid:

To take the plunge. If the wine is sour, don't throw it out; make vinegar.

Something just didn't look right about these two barbicans but until they were sheathed I couldn't quite figure it out.

Ultimately I realized they were too tall.

A couple of minutes with a razor saw and utility knife demonstrated I was right and through careful surgery I managed to save the upper section for the second stage of the construct.

Exercise In Tedium:

The problem with building so large a model is the tedious repetitious building of identical parts.

Even an assembly line approach does not sufficiently relieve the boredom.

Barbican Phase Two:

Show your work is my motto regardless how sloppy. Never fear this is only the underlayment I build for strength and durability.

https://i.imgur.com/5D4RNcq.jpg
IPB Image

This first image shows what a godsend this defuser lens material is. Had I to make all the interior framing for a model of this size it would probably cost twice as much or be very flimsy. One thing you don't want is a limp Titan.

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

The second image shows the corner outcropping structures which are probably too narrow to serve any purpose other than decorative. Were this a stone Barbican it would serve as a buttress for the corner.

I cheated:

I wanted to see what the Citadel would look like so I put the lower leg structures on the deck behind the Barbicans.

https://i.imgur.com/lQyxVjb.jpg
IPB Image

I think this might amount to something after all

https://i.imgur.com/zj7gJb6.jpg
IPB Image

From the top view it seems I made the superstructure deck lust big enough.

https://i.imgur.com/EyJfZJN.jpg
IPB Image

And the Barbicans appear to be the right size as well.

Martini Time!

Skoal.

Looking great! It creates a nice layered effect.

Barbican Spires

The Barbican corner reinforcements have been enclosed and This evening I began creating the ornamental spires to cap the corners.

https://i.imgur.com/srGi6nW.jpg
IPB Image

These are purely decorative being too narrow for occupation.....

https://i.imgur.com/BxOB5tH.jpg
IPB Image

But no doubt they serve some 40K esoteric purpose

https://i.imgur.com/67Rbhhi.jpg
IPB Image

Anyway there are 16 of them and I have managed to complete one and made inroads on seven others before saying ENOUGH!

It is beginning to look even more spectacular with every photo you post. Are you planning on a Sensorium Dome, defence laser or landing platform to go up on top?

You should mount lascannons or battle cannons on the barbicans

These are contenders for armament in the Barbicans:
