    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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

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

    Finally an overall view of the three decks

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

    Not sure I can doff my hat any more, but if I can, consider it done; superb progress sir.
