Holy cow- I turn my back for a couple days and you go all Sistine Chapel on me- what a terrific build! I'm particularly taken with the articulation and pistons driving the joints- very natural (form follows function type stuff)- looks lie what you expect a machine part to look like.

Are you thinking about using guitar string to fabricate servo hoses? I've heard guys talk about using it- some have posted pictures of models using it- and want to do something myself that requires it (first, need to buy some guitar strings).

I very much look forward to seeing how this project progresses!

Not where I should be

Thanks folks.

@ Theo, So do I. And classic song.
@ Meer_Cat, Thank you. Will be using various "piping", guitar strings, cabling, and GS rolled.
@ Vik, Thank you sir, the thing with the resin, is I find it very easy to duplicate a part, I want 20 control panels all looking similar, then instead of cutting all those parts out of expensive and hard to get supplies, make one original and cast it 20 times, really easy and cheaper. also saves a ton of time. With the hip joint mechanics on this build I had one of each lid, plus glueing the lids together is alwasy a little insecure, but cast up the parts and I can manipulate it around and glue it up easy and it is super strong. My lower pelvis coupling below is just some resin poured into a plastic cup. Lump of resin that I can sculpt after. I think more should try it.
@ Dave Oh well past the privates now....

OK so got a little more done....


Made what I am refering to as a pelvis....


And a waist coupling, used magnets, very big magnets....


Loose fitment, not bad...

Started on a few smaller details...





Well thank you for looking, please feel free to comment and critique. Would like to know if anyone has any ideas on colouration for this, also if anyone wants it when I am done, could personalise it that way.

Using resin is like the concept of the space elevator, takes huge amounts of resources to built it but once established it earns back everything in no time and practically runs on zero costs...but you have to reach said level in the first hand...that step feels still light years away for me...tho I fully see every tiny benefit of the whole method...
The warhounds development looks very promising... specially the sturdy pelvis region...using there hollow plastic would have caused feeble structural conditions...but your pics show how sturdy everything is! My hat is off to you and your skills...and your courage to tackle such a project!

@ Theo, could do, was thinking maybe a few rainbows as well.
@ Archer, kinda like it actually, was thinking of Cassius Clay, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a SoB!" but probably not. (he was a great man.)
@ Vik, Oh go on, you can do it. And thank you sir.
@ Dave, Thanks bud.
@ Shas, Thanks bud.
@ Ruglud, Life is shity in many ways, but a few small blessings, like a day to myself and the wife watching movies and building models, will she knits. I am fully aware of how precious time is, and I use every minute of it. Oh and thank you, you are too kind.

Little progress really, did a few bits to the Lower pelvis, making it a little more, well bling I guess.

And the back...


Also stuck the edging on to the board, need to finish the corners and trying to decide whether to do the dots on the dice gold. (Gits look away.)





Thanks for looking and please keep the comments coming.

Thanks everyone.

@ Ruglud,
@ Theo, Thanks bud.
@ Dr H, Thanks and will try.

Hitting a bit of a wall at the mo, but trying to plough through..little details on the legs. Can see hoses and control cables starting to appear. Riveting and banding. Trying to make it all logical as opposed to just sticking it on for the sake of adding something. I think most of this will be grimy old metal work, not too rusty but old and dirty, I know these things are a revered artefact, but they are ancient. Need a bit of lube to keep going.

Anyway for now...




Sorry it is not much, thanks for looking.

I don't think you've hit a wall- you've just started a really fiddly bit of the build. It's amazing how much more complicated a project becomes when you decide to model something 'true to life' instead of comic-book-cool. When all the gears, cables, conduits and wires have to have a function, and run logically from Point A to Point B, progress requires careful thought and superior modelling skills.

I'm very interested in the pistons you've already built and the servos you're adding to make them 'fully functional'- I may have to add scratch-building a Sentinel in the near future just to give that tech a try!

Slog on- the build is terrific!

@ OMN, I get to a stage sometimes where I get frustrated because something is not clicking for me, had a nice burst today so maybe past it a bit.
@ Meer_Cat, Thank you bud, much appreciated.
@ Ruglud, Hehe Thanks bud.

So had a few days of struggling a bit then sat down today and had a rush of blood to the head, so a little progress.

Redesign on toes and foot a bit....




Much happier, but would appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you for looking.

Very realistic- even for real world. The underlying structure that lets any machine perform its function gets designed first- then armor is added. Good engineers consider both in their design and it yields a more integrated/smoother looking machine.

This looks like very good engineers indeed designed it. Believably functional.

Great stuff!

The display board is sweet. The titan is madness-- in the British sense, not the American. (crazy, not angry.)

I hope you've thought ahead more than one step... hmmm, given that you are working on the titan's foot that may be an intentional pun.... and figured out where you'll put the beast once it is built.

Do paint a flattened space marine on the bottom of one of those feet. It is a must do.

Yep I know that feeling all too well. My solution is to walk away from it for a bit, sometimes works, usually ends up in me starting a new project so YMMV.

I've seen those stains somewhere before no idea where, that green does look good, nice find!
