    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.

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


    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.

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


    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.

    When You.....Can Look.....Like This:

    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.

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


    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/4dmRD2w.jpg


    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.

    https://i.imgur.com/K5PU7Ah.jpg


    Finally an overall view of the three decks

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


    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.

    It's been some time since I posted but I have been working; mainly on the interior which must be done before I design the back structure. So from where we left off I had just made the Command deck balcony so here is the forward bulkhead complete with blast doors, and pocket passage doors to the cockpit.

    https://i.imgur.com/20QX1Yb.jpg


    This design is a copy of the Warlord Blast door assembly slightly enlarged and more functional plus I had a lot more room to work with so the design is more refined.

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


    It's amazing how much more roomy this Emperor is compared to the Warlord.

    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.

    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!

    https://i.imgur.com/YdZ1rf5.jpg


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

    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.

    The fact you're putting a functioning interior into this thing is nuts to me. Amazing dedication, Blackadder.

    When I built my Warhound and Thunderhawk I mistakenly used 1/2 inch foam core poster board for a internal framework. I ended up cutting a good deal of the foam material out of the Thunderhawk to make an interior building as it were from the outside to inside.

    With my Warlord I decided to do an interior about halfway into the project which necessitated again cutting into a good deal of interior framework which although was mostly styrene was still a hassle because of the cramped quarters.

    Most of the Warlord interior slides out for upgrading, repair, lighting, &etc.

    This time I am designing the exterior around the removable interior which I am hoping will prove easier.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Wanna See Everybody From Behind

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

    https://i.imgur.com/E2WkIJj.jpg


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

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


    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

    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


    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


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

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


    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

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


    Such is the pitfalls of scratch building without a plan.

    Rear Heat Exchanger and Exhaust Ports:

    The waffle styrene panels are proving their worth.

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


    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


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

    https://i.imgur.com/zrfZ33d.jpg


    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.



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

    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


    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.

    The Basic Structure:

    Is pretty much delineated. Now it just remains to fill the void left by raising the superstructure platform about four inches.I already have ideas about adding another deck to the interior and with access to the rear of the titan in the mode of the FW Warlord That should fill the space nicely.

    https://i.imgur.com/mu1o5UN.jpg


    I spent the past couple of days building another pair of Aquilae for the rear portion of the Cathedral platform just because it's there.

    https://i.imgur.com/1M68If6.jpg


    The rear panel was quite an effort to design especially so the whole thing can be disassembled readily.

    https://i.imgur.com/EOYSz7z.jpg


    Right now it just hangs on the back by friction but eventually it will have locks to hold it to the main structure.

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


    Amazingly it's less than a millimeter off symmetry wise.

    Coming Together:

    In a burst of optimism I have a feeling that this is somehow coming together.

    In this 360° panorama you can get an idea of the magnitude of this construction

    Awright so a few images are missing but you get the idea.
