Where and how did you do those decals?
I made all the "decals" and they are not decals, but cut pieces of paper glued down.

The guns (at this stage) are a mega bolter (more like cannon) variant and plasma blast gun. As well as a carapace mounted missile launcher. I made the mounts with magnets so the guns can be swapped (head as well).

As far as the hoses are concerned, I am attempting to stretch my abilities in paper engineering by making it all out of paper (except the magnets). The hoses came off large, but I am still working them over.

Couple of pic updates.

I have most of the upper body painted and decided to start the storage case which is 28" x 20" x 20" (70 cm x 50 cm x 50cm). The body is starting to fatigue due to all the travel (I work on it wherever I can) and probably would not have had as much problems had I doubled up on the thickness of the paper at stress points. Nonetheless, we fight on.

I have pulled the plans from BWC, but a mirror for the files is posted below.

Note that the model is heavily modified from the original files and only a basic template (no raised surface details, and it's the dragon/dog/eagle head; not the one shown, though I will be releasing it eventually).

DIY Reaver (the one mine is based off of):

DIY Warhound:

Heresy Warhound:

http://www.4shared.com/file/6FZXIvfl..._Warhound.html

Warlord (new version):

http://www.4shared.com/document/tkfX3iva/Warlord.html

Gabriel Knight:

http://www.4shared.com/file/5R8c056o...din_Titan.html

It should be noted that both DIY files are formatted for US Legal (don't ask me why).

those are really helpful. Don't be surprised if you see a couple of looted Titans in the future. The Gabriel knight really has my interest.

I would hope so. I hope to have the modified templates up soon. Note that the art for that one will be US letter format.

That's pretty cool, I can imagine it's quite a lot of work to get that thing stable using only paper. Great job, I hope it holds up through the test of time.
