Attaching it to a base would invalidate all that engineering to make the feet, knees, and hips poseable....

After a month hiatus where I spent the time duplicating the upper works previously accomplished I am approaching the point where four bastions are ready to have the surface sheets applied. 
https://i.imgur.com/t0LlSiP.jpg


I took it on myself to spare my erstwhile readers the agony of enduring repetitive exposition and bit by bit gluing that which was previously documented ad nauseam.

So this is where we are on the superstructure and I have to say I am elated that this is finally approaching completion, component wise that is; there is still a load of detailing to do!!!!

Thanks to all who have recently responded. I've had a bit of a medical setback for the past few months but over the past few weeks I've been recovering and am beginning to feel like proceeding with the project.

Actually a couple of days ago I rebuilt the damage that was caused when the model took a header backwards and finished up the substructure of the four substructures on the deck.

Look for an update later on this week.

I've put this off for far too long.

A good kick in the arse is what I need to get going again.

Again; thanks for all the input from my loyal supporters,

Blackadder

Sorry to hear about the health woes, BA. But i'm very glad to see you still chugging along with this. Even with the (what I can only assume must be) crushing damage setbacks.

This will have to go down as one of the greatest plasticard builds of all time once you finally finish it.

Wow it has been some time since I worked on this project but over the past week I've finally felt well enough to rekindle my interest in completing this effort. As you may have perceived I may have contracted the Corona virus but I cannot be tested for sure as yet.

https://i.imgur.com/Hh5qHUd.jpg


Any over the past week or so I've made some inroads into how to proceed with the superstructure and begun to make the base for the rear pair of towers.

Also for scale I've included the Skitarii figure and one of the decorative statures I ultimately plan to incorporate in the towers.


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



Without going back to view the last developments I posted regarding the interior engineering levels I've included this as well.

Thanks for all the wishes concerning my recovery.

Welcome back Blackadder, we missed you! Looks like the beast is coming along nicely, that interior is going to be incredible when it's all finished off.

Wishing you a swift recovery, hope you can kick this thing in no time.

I’m glad to see you back, I was worried my terrible mis-typing sent you away. Sorry again about that.

Glad your on the mend. Hopefully this means the worst is past for you now.

Good to see you back to health blackadder. It sounds like you’ve had a rough time, but are thankfully on the road to a full recovery now.

Any progress is good progress with something this huge, it’s amazing how she’s really taking shape!

First Time Together This Year:

Toppling damage has been repaired. Blackadder is on the mend. All's right with the world and today is the first time I am putting this all together for a progress report. TADA!
First I am finally confident I have solved the problem of the superstructure so here is the solution.
The egg crate structure at the rear of the deck can be shifted back as needs be but it will form the base for the rear superstructure components.
https://i.imgur.com/Y6RhhcK.jpg

The blue boxes simulate the height of the rear components above the front components. It was there that I had the problem and now we can proceed with the structures on the deck. There will be a cathedral roof between the two rear towers and the huge main gun will protrude between the statues.

Here's a side image.

Ho hum you say; what else is new......

Are You Ready For This:

One of the first things I built for this Titan was the Plasma Cannon. Quite possibly the coolest weapon conceived by GW/FW and I chose this for my Emperor Titan.

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


Of course I had no idea how big to make it and it has been one of my main concerns whether it was too big or too small for all these years until yesterday as I write.
Yesterday with the Titan in one piece for the first time this year I decided to bite the bullet and hang the weapon on the mount arm with the following result.

https://i.imgur.com/V2xYYqZ.jpg

In all I'm quite pleased with the result.

As you should be Blackadder! She’s looking mighty impressive, the extra height of the rear towers has been a good addition too. It’s almost unbelievable how big this is, I can’t imagine how much paint it’s going to need

Thank you for the reply...

Yeah, as of today she stands 46 inches tall (1,17 meters) and this is without the turret gun emplacements on the towers.

Egad! I've dwarfed my Warlord. :(

Simply amazing.

The gun turned out great. It might look “small” compared to the leg, but it’s not a support structure, and still looks in proportion to that Titan.

The scale shot with the figure in the middle of the superstructure is mind blowing. You see the statues and think those are the game figures until you realize those are oversized statues compared to the mini . It’s like seeing the statue of David with a person in the shot for size reference.
