I took a week off from building because I was becoming too complacent in my work. It's a telltale sign that I have been over saturated and tend to get sloppy but last night I got my groove back and put the finishing touches on the armour i.e. cut the grooves for the panel segments. I first shallow scored the plasticard with my utility knife and then made a few more passes to deepen the scores. The holding the knife at an angle I made furrows on either side of the scored lines and sanded the raised ridges smooth. Then with a razor saw I deepened and straightened the furrows and filed the surface smooth again.








The grooves look about done and the armour as you see it is just clipped in place for now.

I've pretty much decided to go with the FW original paint job.



I've seen a lot of colour schemes and I like this one the best. As of right now I've only the void projectors, exhaust stacks, the cable conduit and connectors, the cockpit windows and head armour and a bit more detail on the armament and I'll be ready to paint. I'm hoping to get the void projectors and exhausts completed tomorrow.

While the prospect is interesting I can't imagine the play value of a half dozen or so titans in a game. Who could compete with such an force? Has anyone moulded a FW titan which would probably be easier as the pieces are already cast.

My son (who actually plays the game) says he can't even use all the superheavy tanks we have in a game because no one else has a comparable army.

Anyways keep up the great work. Oh and reppy to you, lots of reppy.
Frustrated artist definitely but my real job is technical troubleshooting.

My technique is to break the model down into a lot of small models and not to be in a rush because when it's finished I'll just be starting another but different model.







Lucie has been free standing for a few days now. the rubber bands are to keep the right spur in place during re-gluing. I accidentally broke the spur off. It just happened that my ham fisted hands managed to break off one of the spurs when press fitting the greaves for the first time. The rear appendage is firmly glued and pinned this time so a repeat mishap is not likely.

The greaves are removable for ease of painting and maintenance and are just pinned in place with 0.060" plastic rods and sockets.

Lucie appears to have a hulking appearance of late. After all the concern that the legs looked too flimsy it turns out that they appear more massive than that of the original.

That's alright I like my females with a healthy set of gams.

I'm not going to overdo the insignia thing but I'll apply those that I see fit after the final basic painting. i plan to spray paint and airbrush for the most part and naturally the geegaws will be of different colours.

I do plan to add a lot more skulls and banners etc.

Just got my computer back up and running today. I had a big problem with reloading windows and have been virtually off line for the better part of two weeks. Naturally the first thing I checked was my emails. Not very many replies from the various forum I usually frequent. I've done some major revamping of the the head and cockpit and finally made the windows and windshield. I installed the cockpit crew and made them so they are visible though the windows. Not technically accurate as looking at the cockpit layout the crew actually sits below the window sill! That doesn't make sense to me so I changed their position. Perhaps their seats elevate so they can look actually around. Anyway thats my story. My son is still looking for the airbrush. I asked him for it about a week ago so I don't hold out much hope that it's still available. Guess I'll bite the bullet and buy a new one.

Taking some pictures later but really not much to show for such a long hiatus.

Thanks for the interest,

EB
