The sheer scale of this thing is actually mind-boggling.

Wow, this is positively monstrous, in the best and most inspiring sense!

Amazing job, can't wait to see how it looks in the end.

Ooo. It is coming together quite nicely!

Yes, quite nicely indeed!

The Plasma Cannon arm has ended up scaling quite nicely, I think. Can't wait to see it fully armed (pun mildly intended) and rigged!

Those proportions look good, especially on the Plasma. That upper structure is just crazy.

Looks superb Adder!!!

Truly stunning!

But alas i'm still of the opinion that he upper arm is a tad too long and makes the weapon hang too low and too far away from the torso. The artwork seems to consistently show the weapons tucked under the upper platform rather than held away from the torso.

But again this is just my personal opinion.

I agree. But before I modify the shoulder yoke I want to see how it looks when completed. The yoke and suspender disc can be shortened up to 3 inches without modifying the yoke and another inch or two if I do need to modify the yoke.

Thanks for the input. I helps to keep me humble.

My VAB:

Behold my new Vehicle Assembly Building

Dedicated to the Emperor Titan in all it's iterations, I've grown tired of this thing toppling when fully assembled.

The VAB has an open space floor to fourth level ceiling of just over 51 inches 130 centimeters.

I agree, you need to turn this into the army display diorama. Make it a full on mechanicus Titan service building. That would fit right in with the scale at which I build my scenery.

The Superstructure towers in the rear needed to be raised in my estimation.

Using the waffle lens material I made a structure that should do the trick.

This is wonderful stuff to work with. It makes building bulky objects a simple task with no real measuring as the 1/2 inch squares are gnat's ass uniform in size.

If those are half-inch squares, that means it's about one normal move from one tower to the other. That's massive! Minis will have to Advance just to get from one flank to the other!

Actually I know nothing about playing the game. It is my son that is the gamer. The squares are actually 16 millimeters length and width or 9/16 inch I don't know if that makes a difference.

How many inches can a non-Space Marine warrior move per turn?

How many turns flank to flank?

I guess it could be used as a stand alone game board.....

Can infantry move deck to deck?

Well damn I've missed this thread. The project is looking incredible BA I have absolutely loved watching this beast come together- only a few bits more now!

And ay, he's right, it'll take a full warriors 6" move to cross from bastion to bastion there- a guardsman wouldn't even make it without an advance! How truly enormous.
If you were to cook up some homebrew rules for it, and moving between layers, it would make a fantastically immersive board for games of kill team- small units battling it out in the labyrinth of the titans architecture. Keep up the good work !

Ha! a subliminal proding that I have been delinquent in publishing an update. Actually I have been working on the 'head' in hopes to complete the interior. I have a question regarding the seated crew. I cannot remember where I obtained the two seated pilots for the cockpit (shown here in my Warlord cockpit)....

If anyone who can provide the information it would be greatly appreciated.

I hope to have an update ready later today.

The fact that you wouldn't have cover while on the largest model ever would be hilarious .

Indeed they do look like the pilot from the Valkyrie and possibly parts of the door gunner as well.

Found 'em; they're Sentinel pilots and dashboards... but I found Valkyrie pilots on Ebay which will do the trick and I can detail the cockpit interior in much the same manner as the Warlord here seen below as I copy a page from the Warlord thread...

Then and Now:

Back when I was young, i.e. before computers; I had this idea of getting images of instruments and pasting them inside of model planes for realistic cockpit displays so perusing catalogs and magazines I came up with a few usable images etc...

Well long story short they were too big, or too small, too dark, too light and ultimately I gave up the idea.

But this morning in the course of mebbe half an hour I searched, photoshopped and printed superb instruments for the Warlord cockpit.

What an amazing age we are privileged to live in.

Paper or Plastic:

The paper gauges seem to work okay; definitely better than I can paint them I was going to light them from behind but I don't think that will be necessary besides the lighting will augment the discrepancies. We don't need that.

Once the glue is dried I'll trim the gauges better, right now they seem a bit crude.

That's one fantastic looking cockpit. I feel like I should apologise, I've been watching this project for ages but haven't yet commented on the exceptional work that you are doing. It's been great watching it develop.

Pardon My Dust,

or

What a Summer!

It may have come as a complete shock to you all but I do have responsibilities regarding house maintenance that occasionally take precedence over my 40K pursuits.

Long story short; my lovely lady friend managed to dislodge some tiles in the bathroom shower in my 50+ year old residence. Simple matter of cleaning the backing board and reinstalling the tiles but further investigation revealed that the backing board was sodden and ultimately I had to replace the entire lower half of the shower walls. I then decided to sheath the interior of the shower with tongue and groove beaded styrene paneling. I finished the interior with plastic crown decorative molding which took me halfway through August but the project came out pretty well if I do say so myself.

After a week or so basking in this past glory; "the light of my life," on stepping out of the shower, she managed to step through the floor in front of the shower door! This necessitated replacing the subfloor and retiling that area as well. Mind you I was in and out off the shower stall easily hundreds of times during the interior work and despite weighing 210 pounds I did not go through the floor. I may need to consider getting a lighter 'main squeeze'

Anyway today I decided to reward myself and take up the cudgel of working on my sadly neglected Emperor Titan.

Just so to resurrect your memory this is the area I am working toward......

I have only this one image to work from.

I finally figured out my mistake.

So I shall be working on this rear area until I get it right.

I hope it will not be so long for the next installment.
