    Corner turrets and the intermediate pointy things are basically done. Next up, the Citadel base.

    LOL. Well not exactly out loud but it did give me a chuckle. Thanks for the reply.

    Moment of Truth This is going to be Interesting. I've learned a lot building this model. It's the largest project I've ever tackled and I've had to innovate a lot of new techniques.It's been a year and a half since I made the first pair of turrets. These new turrets so far are put the old...

    Thanks for the replies. You know, on reviewing the image above I neglected to remark on the crudeness of the construction. When you are scratch building any model especially one as large as this Titan, you are bound to accumulate a large amount of scrap plastic. There is a lot of internal...

    Rediscovering the Wheel: Before I found the rear view of this version of Joazzz2's Emperor Titan I modeled certain components of the superstructure deck including the corner hanging bastions or turrets. I made only two and while quite successful on completion I'd forgotten how I actually built...

    Secondary Towers: The more I study the image of the Emperor Deck the more detail stands out on this marvelous 3D image by Joazzz2. I was aware of the smaller towers on the superstructure deck but I did not perceive there were ten of them until this week. What was going to be a minor...

    Dribs and Drabs: But in these Summer months it's hard to not take advantage of the wonderful pool weather. Much too nice to be indoors working on plastic models. But here's a few images to tide over until the rains return. First the superstructure deck now has forward battlements and the...

    Thanks for the replies..... Hard To Find Time In the Summer: With all the outdoor activity it's hard to knuckle down and make headway on these projects. Thanks for rainy days..... Began the Superstructure Breast Works this week and finally managed to finalize the size of the Cathedral...

    Blackadder's Imperator Titan Build

    Well I finally bit the bullet and purchased the single most expensive component(s) of this model. Namely the Sanctum and Basilicanum Cathedral pieces for the superstructure. https://i.imgur.com/QO3TFnH.jpg There may be those who think I've compromised but once I saw those statues I knew I...

    With such an outpouring of interest I had my son come over to help me assemble the two components. https://i.imgur.com/DH88myl.jpg The good news is the legs can support the weight of the upper torso. The bad news is it is at the moment rather top heavy. https://i.imgur.com/w4DmHxN.jpg...

    Sorry to Disappoint: But the work just done in no way is reflected in the minuscule advancement in the images proffered here. While the Groin construction must bear the mass of over half this Titan there is little to be seen indicated in the images presented here...

    Groin Secondary Detail: Some of the most tedious repetitive structures to make are these Gothic style window frames. There are dozens of these and the sizes are almost all different so you cannot even set up an assembly line. https://i.imgur.com/2U3lNvH.jpg Of course some wag will say cast...

    It's been a while since I've posted; we've got a lot of catching up to do.... https://i.imgur.com/TqR7uy1.jpg This evening I tack glued on the corner pieces to the Pelvic Block just for the pictures shown here https://i.imgur.com/ukKBjyC.jpg So you are seeing in pretty much real time as...

    I don't have the patience to do that kind of work. Maybe when I am finished with the actual construction.

    Forgot to post this update: Flexibility of the Legs: The first two images demonstrate the flexibility of the legs. https://i.imgur.com/rOp4vyv.jpg While not as articulated as my Warlord and Warhound it does have the ability to appear to be ambulatory. https://i.imgur.com/HxvqLrd.jpg The...
