    Mid Waist Deck:

    So today I started with the mid waist deck and already I have an improvement.

    Unfortunately after I glued in the walls but I came to the realization quickly enough to remedy the anomaly.

    I'll leave to you to guess what I found wrong but suffice it to say the construct lacks panache.

    I'll have it corrected tomorrow so you'll see if you guessed right.

    Ciao.

    This Will Happen:

    I've never felt so confident in a project as in this one.

    The mistake of last night bore fruit in that I did not have to rebuild the turn table piece.

    Even the Mid-Waist Platform is the right width for the hips

    But Lord please don't let it be that the head is too small

    First Engineering Deck:

    Situated below the reactor bay and the command deck this room contains (maybe) the electronic and navigation equipment plus the Adeptus Mechanicus altar and tech priests. I'll figure it out later once I get the other decks laid out.

    Below are the inner walls of the deck and the center reactor core.

    And the deck as it stacks up on the titan pelvis block again subject to change as i am not sure how much detail I should add to the top of the pelvic block.

    Hanging Knees:

    That's what they are called in shipbuilding They support the deck beams and are usually curved. In this case I shall leave these flat until I see how the rest of the detail manifests itself.

    Since I seriously have no plan at this stage other than the black and white video captures and this beautifully rendered 3D image I shall be taking what I deem best from both.

    I changed the rear panel from round to flat so I can show the interior space.

    I do like the idea of the railing and balcony and will try to work it into the design just so i can display my Tech Priests.

    A Broken Precedent.

    I don't usually do this but it seems such a 'gimme' that I am running it by without testing the concept.

    I want the neck to be movable on both axes' up /down and side to side and I went to great lengths to accomplish that with my Warlord.

    http://i.imgur.com/05bFt6y.jpg


    With the Emperor Titan I have a lot more room so I'm trying something different. A 3 inch to 2 inch PVC reducing coupling which gives a 20░ up/down and side to side flexibility.

    In the coming days I'll show how this works out but in the meantime I intend to show the interim work for better or worse because once done it will be difficult to reproduce.

    Most people would be satisfied with their scratchbuilt titan having a nicely detailed exterior. Yours is getting a plausible scratch built interior too. Good gods, man. The Ordo Mechanicus is going to come for you at this rate. :P

    Neck Articulation:

    This was so much easier than the engineering gymnastics I had to go thru with the Warlord articulation. After stripping down the head to the basic neck components all it required was drilling four holes and threading them with a 6-32 tap. I countersunk the outer holes for flat headed screws.

    http://i.imgur.com/unU2vdq.jpg


    I then made a collar for the neck to slide into and mounted it into the middle deck forward bulkhead. Not glued because I want to be able to disassemble the model for painting and upgrading. Everything is as close a tolerance press fit as I can make it.

    http://i.imgur.com/CCUVtMC.jpg


    Centering the neck in the outer ring I secured the screws.

    So after all that work I got about a 15 to 20░ downward tilt to the neck.

    Sliding the assembly together gives an idea of what the finished model will be able to do by way of articulation.

    After reassembling the head I'll be able to see how much more downward angle I can add if needs be.

    Hate Mail:

    I'm gonna get a lot of hate mail because this damned thing works perfectly and no one is more surprised than I am.

    http://i.imgur.com/l8yW8Fd.jpg


    The range of motion is still rather limited but after I get the breast plate detail completed I can increase the range up/down and side to side by I'm guessing at least double.

    http://i.imgur.com/QMaF2j6.jpg


    I'm hoping to reassemble the head today so I can test out the balcony clearance.

    It's really fun to sequence these thru my image viewer. Ha!

    This mechanism is actually a two axis gimbal.

    Amendment:

    Because of my fixation on having a railed promenade for my Tech Priests I mounted the head higher than the You tube Video Imperator.

    http://i.imgur.com/LubKGr5.jpg


    Since my version has a dynamic structure I feel the snaky conduits are out of place and the chin armour is too close to the deck.

    There is no need for the cramped claustrophobic appearance when all the space above is free to interpretation.

    Of course I may just have added another 5 centimeters to the overall height.

    A Matter of Scale:

    A side by side comparison with my Warlord. Egad this thing will be huge.
