Ahh! much Better!
The yoke is now centered in the cutout as well...
I have no idea what these cylinders are for....
The arm is solid with no shoulder hinge points.

The Wine was Sour:
I've gone about as far with this as I can without correcting grievous mistakes I've tried to lived with for the past year or so. If I am to complete this model the problems must be addressed now.
The following images are of the upper torso as it is right now.....
The yoke arms are too low and hang too far down into the interior decks.
The first step is to take the model completly apart and remove the yoke.
I cut about 1.5 inches off the top of the yoke which seems about right...
I sealed the top with 0.020 inch styrene...
more to come.....

The Superstructure towers in the rear needed to be raised in my estimation.
Using the waffle lens material I made a structure that should do the trick.
This is wonderful stuff to work with. It makes building bulky objects a simple task with no real measuring as the 1/2 inch squares are gnat's ass uniform in size.
The extended base with the towers
and with the Gothic statues applied
By George I think he's got it.

Behold my new Vehicle Assembly Building
Dedicated to the Emperor Titan in all it's iterations, I've grown tired of this thing toppling when fully assembled.
The VAB has an open space floor to fourth level ceiling of just over 51 inches 130 centimeters.

|Old Man78||Gasp! The beast is outstanding old boy, simply outstanding. And are those V.H.S tapes? The only one I could make out was robocop, an outstanding movie|

Are You Ready For This:
One of the first things I built for this Titan was the Plasma Cannon. Quite possibly the coolest weapon conceived by GW/FW and I chose this for my Emperor Titan.
Of course I had no idea how big to make it and it has been one of my main concerns whether it was too big or too small for all these years until yesterday as I write.
Yesterday with the Titan in one piece for the first time this year I decided to bite the bullet and hang the weapon on the mount arm with the following result.
In all I'm quite pleased with the result.

Thanks for the reply Old Man....
First Time Together This Year:
Toppling damage has been repaired. Blackadder is on the mend. All's right with the world and today is the first time I am putting this all together for a progress report. TADA!
First I am finally confident I have solved the problem of the superstructure so here is the solution.
The egg crate structure at the rear of the deck can be shifted back as needs be but it will form the base for the rear superstructure components.
The blue boxes simulate the height of the rear components above the front components. It was there that I had the problem and now we can proceed with the structureson the deck. There will be a cathedral roof between the two rear towers and the huge main gun will protrude between the statues.
Here's a side image.
And a left side image aerial view.
Ho hum you say; what else is new......
It's a surprise even for ME!

|Old Man78||Good to see you again @Blackadder and your wonderful creations! Get well soon old boy, I'm sure you'll be having some medicinal libations to keep your spirits up|

Wow, it has been some time since I worked on this project but over the past week I've finally felt well enough to rekindle my interest in completing this effort.
As some have perceived I may have contracted the Corona virus but I couldn't be tested for sure as yet. Today I am going to be tested for the presence of Covid 19 antibodies.
Anyway over the past week or so I've made some inroads into how to proceed with the superstructure and begun to make the base for the rear pair of towers.
Also for scale I've included the Skitarii figure and one of the decorative statures I ultimately plan to incorporate in the towers.
Without going back to view the last developments I posted regarding the interior engineering levels I've included this as well.
