Anyway it's the weekend baby and I'm hot modeling-wise I hope to have the front and rear toes mounted today.

Well the weekend is over and in a flurry of productiveness I managed to attach one front toe With hinge as planned and it works and seems relatively strong

Now the diagonal stabilizers need a bit of work but nothing extraordinary and they do allow the foot to flex so there's no cause for concern. I can't mount the back toes yet as I have to find 3/8 dia light springs to stabilize the disc; much better than my piston cylinder design, a suggestion from Zathros, a Moderator on another forum and to whom I say thanks.

The fact that this is an insanely detailed titan that is scratch build from the ground up is just insane when you stop and think about it.

It having moving and articulating joints is mindblowing! Pure genious man...

You say insane like it's a good thing?

I found some 1/2 inch springs 1 inch tall and set about modifying the disc stabilizing system to accept them. I have to admit it works rather well.

Not too much to show for this mornings work; the reinforcements for the diagonal stabilizers are installed and the second front toe mount hinge is drying. The stabilizers do not appear to interfere with the toe movement and they appear a close fit to the mounted disc, about a millimeter clearance. I should be starting on the shank of the leg this weekend if the holiday doesn't interfere too much.

Wow!

This is a fantastic build :so_happy:

Thank you,

With the paranoia of machine shop precision I managed to drill and tap two perfect (with apologies to Werner Heisenberg) holes with a 10-32 tap for my axle shafts. Tack glue them in place and set aside to dry and for photos.

The amount of work you are putting into unseen parts is amazing. Working hinges and joints, spring-stabilized parts, holy cow!

But do you apply sacred ungents and oils after praying for the Omnissiah to guide and bless your work? :biggrin:

I have to admit I do get great pleasure from working on these models but I do draw the line at the necessity of the use of unguents and oils.:biggrin:

Werner Heisenberg will forgive your transgressions with regards to the uncertainty principle this once. Carry on.
