    Yeah the cabling &etc will be added when I finis the detailing. Right now I have to incorporate the interior cockpit with the rest of the head(sic).
    You're welcome Glad I could be of service to such a monumental project!

    Look forward to seeing progress on the cockpit interior.

    Words fail you good or words fail you bad? (Ermahgerd, I'm almost sounding like Trump there. He speaks the wellest of English as he is the bigliest of talker persons.)
    I'm leaning towards words fail you good as that head is looking menacing like hell.

    Since I am a Proud member of 'The Deplorables' I'll let that pass.....

    The Neck Passage:

    Before I leave for Las Vegas a little something that came to me this past evening. Since I am making a full cockpit interior I'll need a sufficient mount so why not use the mount to simulate a passage thru the neck.

    And to reinforce the floor and give me something to attach the cockpit why not a few Lightening holes.

    I'll explain how this was done when I

    See you all next week; Ciao.

    Thanks for the reply; I am back from a tedious 2600 mile odyssey traveling the breadth of the United States in three days in a 16 foot truck trailering a car which was no picnic. It took me a day to recuperate and a day to unload the truck and a couple of days to get my groove back. Yesterday I began again to make pieces for the interior and I hope to have a post update ready tomorrow. Meanwhile thanks for all the posts and the support. I'll try not to let you all down. Worthy of note; I spent three days in Las Vegas and didn't spend so much as a nickel gambling. Somewhat of a record to my mind but I did see the Arizona Meteor Crater which was a life long ambition.

    Slowing Down:

    Am I slowing down in my dotage?

    A week ago I was somewhere in Texas, Windmills to the right of me, windmills to the left of me from horizon to horizon.

    The tallest wind turbines in the U.S. have been installed in Texas — the Vestas V90 turbines are 345 feet high, and are rated at 3 megawatts each. They are part of the 63 megawatt Snyder Wind Project, a wind farm that’s just been installed in western Texas.

    Today I finally put the floor in my Emperor Titan head. a weeks worth of work and damned little to actually show

    I vacillated from not enough room to too much room......

    but now that the actual floor is installed it all is coming together correctly

    Sorry for what seems redundant images but the previous ones were without the floor and not able to be handled. Now at least they are held together with gum bands and aside from being somewhat askew are just about right for installing the interior furniture.

    With plenty of room to spare.

    Tonight's repast; Martini, Texas Chili and the Doctor Strange BlueRay Video....

    Skoal.

    Don't Be So Proud Of This Engineering Marvel You've Created

    It pales to insignificance compared to the force.

    So it's been quite a while since I posted; I've been really busy with community activism. But I did manage to work a bit on the interior. So the best thing to do is to show how it breaks down......

    The Complete er-ah- Head as it is today.

    Slide the visor up to disengage the faceplate.

    The Faceplate engages the neck corridor floor with a tongue in groove joint.

    Revealing where the interior cockpit will eventually be assembled.

    The Chin fighting platform floor is held in place by a single screw , the only hardware needed so far in this assembly.

    and tongue in groove edges

    To round out the effort the visor slips off to reveal the cockpit interior when the model is completed.

    Long Island Ice Tea Time. Skoal!

    BTW I'm open to any questions regarding the construction if the pictures have you puzzled but only on the thread; not a PM please.

    It does look good. How are you planning to complete the corridor into the chin? It looks like there should be some kind of walls between the neck and the sides of the chin platform- having an open-air entrance to the cockpit of the titan would be a bit odd. On the other hand, making a join that allows the head to move on the neck joint would be very difficult with an enclosed corridor.

    I will be intrigued to see how you do this, because you have a knack for finding solutions to this kind of problem.

    Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing and thanks for the reply.

    A series of overlapping layers perhaps? Like the laminated effect used in a lot of plate armour to allow movements at joints, but retain the protection. It would be complicated and difficult to make reliable, but I can't think of an easier way other than using flexible materials at the joint.
