Disaster:

While attaching the new part disaster struck and the whole assembly toppled off of the display console five feet to the floor first falling on my work desk. The whole thing shattered into half a dozen pieces on the desk and floor and I feared for the worst

But inspection revealed no damage done to any of the discrete pieces and the titan readily reassembled none the worse for the experience.

So here's a closeup of the new piece in approximately the finished location. the legs may have to be shortened.

This piece relies on the CoD Manufactorum railings for the detail so far. More yet to come and of course I need to make another one.

A testament to your modelling skills it didn't disintegrate into a million pieces and was unable to be repaired 👍🏿

The God Machine Arises:

Sorry to be so self indulgent but this is coming out much better than I expected.

In the beginning I had shall we say neutral enthusiasm for the project because when finished (If Successful I must add) it would relegate My Luteus Vexant to second place.

Now with a clear idea of how to build the chest area everything is falling into place and with both hanging buttresses in place the true width of the chest becomes apparent.

In point of fact this beastie has wormed it's way into my heart and I am beginning to regret compromising on the hip structure.

Tonight I am going to start on the superstructure platform which will support the Cathedral-like top hamper

And tomorrow I have to make a Hobby run for more 1/2 inch square square tubing.

Once again serendipity:

rears it's head. The "Hanging Butresses have structures that I suppose reinforce the arches and perhaps act as drains or down spouts. A large central one and two secondary on the wings. Inspecting my CoD bitz for inspiration I found the bas-relief tech priests on either side of the gothic arch windows made ideal. accents for these structures.

I used a razor saw to fine cut the figures from the window frames by first cutting off the square beam, then the footing course, finally the figures from the remainder. I discarded the the excess of the top and sanded the back side smooth. I then glued the figure to 3/8th inch square tubing (9.5 MM)

I still haven't decided how long to make these so for now I'll just make all four and adjust the length at another time after I make the inverted square spires.

But as you can see, blind luck has favored The Blackadder. biggrin.gif
