    Composite Image:

    I've been asked to put this together for an overall image of the work thus far.

    Well it's too tall for the work console I have to stack the two major components, legs and torso, plus the whole thing is front heavy at the moment with none of the rear counterweights installed; I'm figuring the completed model will weigh in the neighborhood of two Bowling balls overall weight when finished; i.e.32 pounds or about 14.5 kilo.

    The only other leastwise finished component is the Sunfury Plasma Annihilator which also cannot be mounted until the top and bottom body sections are together.

    But my clumsy photo editing can give you a general idea of where I am heading with this construction.

    With such an outpouring of interest I had my son come over to help me assemble the two components.

    The good news is the legs can support the weight of the upper torso. The bad news is it is at the moment rather top heavy.

    All that will change when I install the rear components and the interior. The model right now is 46 inches tall assembled with I'm figuring another 10 inches more to be added to the superstructure.

    The author to scale is 75 inches tall and the 28mm scale Skitarii and the two Space Marines are added for comparison

    Hard To Find Time In the Summer:

    With all the outdoor activity it's hard to knuckle down and make headway on these projects. Thanks for rainy days.....

    Began the Superstructure Breast Works this week and finally managed to finalize the size of the Cathedral decking. I was off by about a centimeter overall but which will be easy to compensate for.

    Below are two images from the basic half finished deck breast works....

    Dribs and Drabs:

    But in these Summer months it's hard to not take advantage of the wonderful pool weather. Much too nice to be indoors working on plastic models.


    But here's a few images to tide over until the rains return.

    First the superstructure deck now has forward battlements and the blocks are the beginnings of the center corner towers which do not seem to have any offensive capabilities.

    Extending the deck allows for spacing the "Firestorm Redoubts" and also gives room for the fifteen meter tall statues on the Citadel base to be seen more clearly.

    Finally;

    A bird's eye view of the Firestorm quad Laser Cannons base

    It's all coming together just as if I actually had, Some kinda Plan. Ha!

    Secondary Towers:

    The more I study the image of the Emperor Deck the more detail stands out on this marvelous 3D image by Joazzz2. I was aware of the smaller towers on the superstructure deck but I did not perceive there were ten of them until this week.

    What was going to be a minor exercise in tedium has suddenly become a major pain in the arse.

    Doubly so because I really hate doing these tiny pyramidal end caps.

    Rediscovering the Wheel:

    Before I found the rear view of this version of Joazzz2's Emperor Titan I modeled certain components of the superstructure deck including the corner hanging bastions or turrets. I made only two and while quite successful on completion I'd forgotten how I actually built them

    Hence the title of this entry.

    When I obtained the back view I found I needed two more.

    Moment of Truth

    This is going to be Interesting.

    I've learned a lot building this model.

    It's the largest project I've ever tackled and I've had to innovate a lot of new techniques.It's been a year and a half since I made the first pair of turrets.

    These new turrets so far are put the old ones to shame and it'll be interesting to see how they top out.
