Head and Neck Passage Assembly

The Emperor Titan head and neck passage assembly basically accomplished and ready to install as a component although the detailing is far from completed.

Plan Ahea
d

Horrors, I ran out of CoD Manufactorum Bitz.

I have become accustomed to accessing my CoD bitz box for whatever details I need so it came as a great surprise last evening when I found I had exhausted the larder.

Fortunately ebay had a kit at a reasonable price and it will be delivered next month on the fifth. Whew!

Meanwhile I have plenty to occupy my time working around the omission.

It's all looking fantastic. Really amazing to go through the blog and see it all coming together.

Well enough procrastinating, it's a dirty job but I must address it. The rear of the Titan has to be interlocking with somewhat hidden seams but also allow the decks to be drawn out easily to view the interior. Yet the whole thing must be pinned together so the deck don't fall out when handled.

it's going to be hard to see these pieces in place so here they are unassembled.

Wanna See Everybody From Behind

So the first step of building the back elevation is roughed out and two more decks to go.

I've no idea what these compartments do. I do know there are louvered exhaust ports on either side of the center structure.

Interior detail is lining up satisfactorily.

In A Rears

The rear panels are finally underway and the coordination with the interior is satisfactory. Everything is lining up as if it were planned.

The two side chambers have their reinforcing floors and ceilings

Next up, the engineering compart rear wall and the completion of the pelvic /hip plate

Problem:

When I built this Titan I raised the head off the Promenade deck because it looked too close and the function of the head to 'look' down was impeded.

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

The artist had no such problem because he had the flexibility of adjusting the position of the head to suit his whim

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

but in the real world that option is not available to me

https://i.imgur.com/2PDAbIv.jpg

So now I am in the position of filling 4 inches of space with extemporaneous Titan gobbledygook to fill this void biggrin.gif

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

Such is the pitfalls of scratch building without a plan. biggrin.gif

Rear Heat Exchanger and Exhaust Ports:

The waffle styrene panels are proving their worth.

The constructions I make are far more easy to build, stable, and true to square without having to resort to extreme measures in fabricating.

https://i.imgur.com/fHIE3GJ.jpg
IPB Image

These two shots of the assembly on the desk and mounted on the model demonstrate the durability of the construction.....

Whereas before it resembled a house of cards.

Thar's Gold In Them Thar Hills...........

Of recyclable trash that is.

I struck paydirt last month when I saw this discarded tv. Readymade Static louvers says I for my Emperor Titan.

IPB Image

All that needs be done is cut them out and install them.

It's worth a shot...........

Heat Exchangers Sheathed:

They look a tad large but I'm hoping once the rest of the stern/back whatever is made they will blend in.

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

I was too conservative in my estimate of the size of the rear deck but no matter I can spline on an addition.

https://i.imgur.com/d5ILOFA.jpg

Now for the side intakes.
