Blackadder My VAB:

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

Blackadder 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.

Blackadder 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.

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

Blackadder 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.

Old Man78 Ahhh more great stuff old boy, at times I wonder weather I should praise you or recommend a therapist for these endeavours. Have a bit of rep!

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


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!
