Blackadder Now It Can Be Told:
https://i.imgur.com/eLje0ft.jpg


After a month hiatus where I spent the time duplicating the upper works previously accomplished I am approaching the point where four bastions are ready to have the surface sheets applied.

I took it on myself to spare my erstwhile readers the agony of enduring repetitiveexposition and bit by bit gluing that which was previously documented ad nauseam.

So this is where we are on the superstructure and I have to say I am elated that this is finally approaching completion, component wise that is; there is still a load of detailingto do!!!!

Blackadder Flying Buttresses;

Once again these seemingly simple constructs are labor intensive

A box like structure seventimes longer than it's wide and I need four of them.

Even with the egg crate material and the resourcesof industrial quality styrene 0.040" (1,0 millimeter) sheets it's taken a while to manufacture just one. but the next three should take much less time

Blackadder It's been a busy month and I'm afraid the Emperor has taken a back seat compared to my other more pressing endeavors. I did manage to cobble together the rear bastions of the superstructure which are virtuallycarbon copies of the front components. My grandioseidea of a kit bash citadelhas been greatly reconsidered because such a structure would compromise the theme of the scratch work.
"There is no shortcut to glory." It's a lesson I seem destined to relearn with every model I attempt. :D

On another aside I can't believeI only took one picture of this most recent construction!

Blackadder Corner turrets and the intermediate pointy things are basically done.

Blackadder Moment of Truth

This is going to be Interesting.

I've learned a lot building this model.

It's the largest project I've ever tackled and I've had to innovate a lot of new techniques.It's been a year and a half since I made the first pair of turrets.

These new turrets so far are put the old ones to shame and it'll be interesting to see how they top out.

Blackadder Rediscovering the Wheel:

Before I found the rear view of this version of Joazzz2's Emperor Titan I modeled certain components of the superstructure deck including the corner hanging bastions or turrets. I made only two and while quite successful on completion I'd forgotten how I actually built them :p

Hence the title of this entry.

When I obtained the back view I found I needed two more.

Blackadder Secondary Towers:

The more I study the image of the Emperor Deck the more detail stands out on this marvelous 3D image by Joazzz2. I was aware of the smaller towers on the superstructure deck but I did not perceive there were ten of them until this week.

What was going to be a minor exercise in tedium has suddenly become a major pain in the arse.

Doubly so because I really hate doing these tiny pyramidal end caps.

Dribs and Drabs:

But in these Summer months it's hard to not take advantage of the wonderful pool weather. Much too nice to be indoors working on plastic models.


But here's a few images to tide over until the rains return.

https://i.imgur.com/NIksL45.jpg


First the superstructure deck now has forward battlements and the blocks are the beginnings of the center corner towers which do not seem to have any offensive capabilities.

Extending the deck allows for spacing the "Firestorm Redoubts" and also gives room for the fifteen meter tall statues on the Citadel base to be seen more clearly.

Finally;

It's all coming together just as if I actually had, Some kinda Plan. Ha!
