    It would also look badass, and aesthetically matches the rest of the Mechanicus vehicles.

    Worked and Worked:

    But so little actually visibly accomplished. I began this project telling myself I would not make the same mistakes I made with my Warlord but Damn! it's coming out so good that I keep retrofitting more and more interior so I'm back to building inside out again. I had hoped to start on the chest and shoulders by now.

    So here's the Landspeeder cockpit that will eventually fit into the head which has a floor ready to receive the cockpit but is just a slab of angled 0.040 sheet styrene so really nothing to see yet. But trust me it is inside.

    A little more visible are the cheek canisters whatever purpose they serve other than clutter the face up and therefore add esoteric detail.

    I notched out the canisters to mount on the secondary cheek armour which is where I am now in the construction so before I glue the on why not take some teaser images to tantalize my loyal readers.

    Hopefully I'll have more progress to show next time.

    BTW, just noticed the floor of the cockpit is visible in the image directly above but as I said it's just a sheet of thin styrene so whoopdeedoo!

    I think the canisters are meant to be the speakers that the Titan uses to scream with. It is a feature of all Ad Mech Titans I think.

    Speakers, what a novel idea. What better than the God Machine speaking with a basso profundo bellow in the midst of the carnage. Thanks,

    Pure Gold:

    Gold is where you find it as the old saw goes and you find it in the least likely places. I was in a variety store a few days ago and found these Hair bands 4.76 MM (3/16 inch) diameter that are ideal for the canister conduit.

    I felt the image conduit aesthetically too large of a diameter.

    I have used these before on my Warlord and my Warhounds but those were only 3,0 MM (1/8 inch).

    If I could find 6.3 MM (1/4 inch) that would be also of use. I'll keep on looking.

    Whilst we have the head apart again I can show the cockpit which is coming along quite well.

    Working on the interior is much easier if you can remove it and reinstall at will so I work with a detachable floor.

    It also makes it easier to paint if I ever get that far.

    Do you plan to fill in that triangular space between the pilot feet and the nose with some sort of control console then?
    "Tothe" rhymes with "cloth."

    Probably some 'Ad Mech' quasi-religious artifacts and instrument panel displays / console/ controls as I did with my Warlord.

    The Fearful Symmetry:

    As most of you know I rarely measure when producing my work. Therefore symmetry is a problem for me as revealed in the image below. The face shield is canted a degree or 2 counterclockwise which is readily apparent in this head on image.

    Of course no one will be standing full dead on eye level with the construct so I may let this discrepancy slide.

    The Low angle view seems to hide the flaw.

    Now for the crux of this discourse; the conduit run to the ear pieces.

    Magnets hold the ear disc on with a fender washer to take up the gap.

    And a 5 inch scale for reference to the size of this, seeming, never ending construct..

    Aha! Ha! Ha!

    Fun and games boys and girls, fun and games. Thanks to an andante admirer I've a new direction to follow gleaning the best from all info available. I've managed to begin the mid-waist decking and observation platform.

    I truly want a railed promenade deck on this beastie and a fully articulated neck as well so letting you all in on the ground floor of this is a bit daring especially if I fall short but this is how I work; off the cuff.

    We'll see how far I'm off the mark in a few days.
