    A Series Of Interlocking Components:

    It took a bit of doing but all the major components lock together to go from this .........

    To this .......

    https://i.imgur.com/S7OFsf2.jpg


    in about as much time as it takes (me) to type this. (Not being the world's fastest typist.)

    So the entire model thus far can be disassembled for painting, upgrading and repaired at a whim.

    Now that the superstructure deck support is locked into place I can continue with the interior with the intermediate deck roughed in in the immediate above view.

    With the deck removed you can visualize the two story engineering compartment.

    Desperation Is the Mother Of Invention:

    I won't boor you with the details of how I made these plugs. The first view should be self explanatory

    https://i.imgur.com/TlWNUhX.jpg


    Instead I'll boor you with the why.

    I've got these two side supports that will ultimately hold up the tophamper

    [BTW I weighed this beast this weekend and excluding the vise he weighs 12 pounds, (5.44311 Kilograms),(0.857143 stone), Twelve Pounds of STYRENE!]

    Anyway that much weight will surely spread these walls especially since I will not be gluing them in place (I hope) so the problem is how do I lock them in place.

    Once again the waffle light panel to the rescue.

    https://i.imgur.com/N29ODWw.jpg


    I made plugs that will fit snugly into the waffle recesses.

    Naturally it would have been too much to expect that they would line up perfectly with the overhead deck so I attached a fudge factor plate to compensate for the misalignment. and glued the plug to the top of the side wall. (I won't go in to how exacting this was; especially for the first one )

    Three more to go and I'll display the finished assembly.

    Fallen Into Place:

    The four aligning plugs installed.

    Sorry for what appears to be repetitive images but there are the subtlest differences that entailed a lot of work that I feel I must apprise anyone following this thread aware. The aligning of the upper deck is most important for subsequent structures otherwise the model will become lopsided and sloppy.

    Note in particular the centering of the weapon yoke in the slot. Now that the sides are secure that arm is correctly brought to center.

    Now that the side panels are locked into place with the upper deck and the chest area I can proceed with the building of the interior and the rear of the titan.

    A Weekend's Effort:

    Aside from my official duties I managed to find time to add some detail to this beast and attempt to refine a vexing discrepancy in my calculations. Note the adjustment of the cylinder trunnions.

    https://i.imgur.com/uqAkjMb.jpg


    I still have to mount the magnets that will secure the piston end of the assemblies but I know I shall have to adjust the gap between the piston head and the armament yoke; hence the cutouts.

    https://i.imgur.com/WwKrLCw.jpg


    I still question the necessity for these hydraulics as they corrupt the clean lines of the model but I'll install the for the time being just to remain true to the prototype. The work will not be in vain as these cylinders can easily be adapted for the legs or ankles.

    When You.....Can Look.....Like This:

    https://i.imgur.com/qO5Tq20.jpg


    I wasn't satisfied how the piston/snubbers/whatever, detracted from the sweeping elegance of the armament yoke yet rather than discard the whole concept I decided to play around a little.....

    Aesthetically this looks better to me.

    When you are going to hydraulic systems that serve no purpose, at least they should look good; Right?

    Please Yourself and You Please Everyone

    As the say'n goes. There seems a bit of controversy about my departure for the iconic 3D prototype but I think this looks much better.

    https://i.imgur.com/jXTdCXw.jpg


    The side panels make more sense with this arrangement and it allows for a maintenance observation balcony that I think will add interest to the model plus the grander of the weapons mount yoke is undiminished.

    https://i.imgur.com/KVnXAwb.jpg


    The dual actuators now have a purposeful appearance for what ever that may be.

    And disappear into the yoke to accomplish it.

    A Man A Plan

    Whom I kidding, it's all serendipity.......

    I've worked long and hard to reach this point this evening but these six images make it worth it. Every thing is falling into place including the three story engineering compartment with it's 15 foot ceilings.

    The fusion reactor will take up two of those decks.

    The lower deck will open onto the platform under the head for the Adeptus Mechanicus Priests to supervise the battle a hundred feet above the fray

    The intermediate command deck where the tactical computers &etc will be displayed.

    Finally an overall view of the three decks

    It's going to take a lot of bitz to clutter up all this space.

    It's been some time since I posted but I have been working; mainly on the interior which must be done before I design the back structure. So from where we left off I had just made the Command deck balcony so here is the forward bulkhead complete with blast doors, and pocket passage doors to the cockpit.

    https://i.imgur.com/20QX1Yb.jpg


    This design is a copy of the Warlord Blast door assembly slightly enlarged and more functional plus I had a lot more room to work with so the design is more refined.

    It's amazing how much more roomy this Emperor is compared to the Warlord.

    Head and Neck Passage Assembly

    The Emperor Titan head and neck passage assembly basically accomplished and ready to install as a component although the detailing is far from completed.

    Plan Ahea
    d

    Horrors, I ran out of CoD Manufactorum Bitz.

    I have become accustomed to accessing my CoD bitz box for whatever details I need so it came as a great surprise last evening when I found I had exhausted the larder.

    Fortunately ebay had a kit at a reasonable price and it will be delivered next month on the fifth. Whew!

    Meanwhile I have plenty to occupy my time working around the omission.
