Old Man78 Fantastic really fantastic, that photo really shows the scale of the titan

The Questor With such an outpouring of interest I had my son come over to help me assemble the two components.

The good news is the legs can support the weight of the upper torso. The bad news is it is at the moment rather top heavy.

All that will change when I install the rear components and the interior. The model right now is 46 inches tall assembled with I'm figuring another 10 inches more to be added to the superstructure.

The author to scale is 75 inches tall and the 28mm scale Skitarii and the two Space Marines are added for comparison

The Questor For the life of me I cannot figure out why I have two accounts on this thread.......

Sorry to Disappoint:

But the work just done in no way is reflected in the minuscule advancement in the images proffered here. While the Groin construction must bear the mass of over half this Titan there is little to be seen indicated in the images presented here.

Front and rear projections are but somewhat faithful to M. Joazzz2's marvelous artistry for, as near as I can, I have of necessity taken certain liberties in the interpretation.

The hip area in particular need be somewhat more substantial than the rear projection image offered by Mr J.

May I be forgiven for the heresy.

Old Man78 Sounds laborious, why don't you just cas......, oh I mean.......never mind! I'm sure your inner perfectionist will not baulk at the challenge, and your fans will be truly inspired

Blackadder Groin Secondary Detail:

Some of the most tedious repetitive structures to make are these Gothic style window frames. There are dozens of these and the sizes are almost all different so you cannot even set up an assembly line.

https://i.imgur.com/2U3lNvH.jpg


Of course some wag will say cast them or 3D print them but the truth is I cannot afford even the most primitive 3D printer and the casting process involves incompatible materials plus try as I might the casting always stands out as as well looking like the parts were cast.

No I just have to hunker down and endure the tedium.

Old Man78 Enemies of man may laugh at a titan waddling toward them, until the face melting fire power lays waste to everything in the area!!!!!!!!! Cue maniacal laughter

The Questor It's been a while since I've posted; we've got a lot of catching up to do....

This evening I tack glued on the corner pieces to the Pelvic Block just for the pictures shown here

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

So you are seeing in pretty much real time as the following sequence of images just as I assemble it for the first time.

https://i.imgur.com/n0TpSkm.jpg


The Pelvic Block is an unremarkable structure that functions primarily as decorative rather than functional.

https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


All the supportive structure of the Pelvis, hips, and joints are encased in the Pelvic Block and are functional without it even being installed the same as with my Warlord Titan (Seen in the background of some of these images.)
https://i.imgur.com/NWYuI2S.jpg


The First image shows a basic standing pose and sad to say demonstrates that Titans as a group are pretty much dysfunctional when it comes to walking. Titans cannot lift one foot off the ground without toppling sideways because of the immutable laws of gravity. They may be able adopt a toddler's gait but the sight of these behemoths waddling across the battlefield would be ludicrous in the extreme and pretty much negate any awe and terror their size and power might engender.

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


https://i.imgur.com/TatN3Pr.jpg

Anyway It's fun to speculate about them in spite of their impracticality seen here in the Classic Titan stance.

Blackadder Flexibility of the Legs:

The first two images demonstrate the flexibility of the legs.

https://i.imgur.com/rOp4vyv.jpg


While not as articulated as my Warlord and Warhound it does have the ability to appear to be ambulatory.

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


The next images show the front and rear basic detail of the Pelvis.

and the 3D Titan images I am working from.....

Old Man78 1.66 meters tall, that is a pure beast of a model, that's up to my nose! I don't cast a particularly long shadow

Blackadder Yesterday Morning:

The Pelvic Block was about 4 inches square. Now it is about 6 inches by 4 inches and the basic shape is established.

This side view show the shape of the original Block

The Lower Body Turntable seated above the Block

And the Turntable and Block temporarily installed on the Hips

This thing literally fell together last night......

Such is the power and convenience of using this waffle material.

I really love this stuff. Not only is it cheap but it virtually removes the problem of squaring up and truing the angles on large constructions. I could never afforded to build this Titan without this material.
