I appreciate that the development of a cast-worthy model takes special abilities I do not possess to develop as this is a one shot Objet d'art (If I may presume) instead of a reproduce-able moulded figure, I seriously double that any of my model can be casted as it is designed.......

I was just noting that the development and execution of Luteus is well within the time frame of FW's estimate of developing a Warlord Titan.

Yet another request of my source of styrene on another forum so I am going to be up front and reveal my larder.

Over the course of a few years I have accumulated quite an inventory of styrene strips and sheets mainly by investing about twenty bucks a month into increasing my reservoir of material.

I won't lie to you on the face of it it is a tremendous outlay of cash for an inventory of this size and Evergreen won't spring for a display carousel for a noncommercial site even though I regularly extol their product.

Evergreen Scale Models

In addition I have researched wholesale distributors of styrene sheets which is by far the biggest single outlay of cash for material. I found a local one in an Industrial park that supplies my requirements.

Now that I have all the styrene I need I routinely spend about 20 bucks a month to keep my supply sufficiently abundant.

What every scratch builder needs. It never fails when I am building something medel rail related that I run out of the exact strip I need right in the middle of a build. Yiou are an example to us all Blackadder.

A Mélange of Decor, Dispair, Decadence and Decay

Unfortunately using a flash washes out a good bit of detail especially the 0.010 inch/ 0.25 MM layered armour which hopefully washes will bring to the fore.

The new bitz is what I am debuting with this post and I am hoping that I have achieved the right degree of decoration, decadence and decay which permeates the desperate 40K future world much as western culture seems hellbent on the road to in the early 21st century.

In this first image I show the new side detail of the carapace which is a melange of DS's bitz work and my interpretation thereof which is somewhat less busy and I hope makes more sense from an (totally bogus) engineering standpoint

Most prominent are the numerous vents and exhaust fans that I deem necessary to cool the vast heat producing engines necessary to animate this behemoth:

This image shows the top of the carapace showing the four adjunct shield relays and the two shoulder field regulator receivers one on either side of the carapace munitions exhaust fan:

Top rear view showing the four rear shield relays and the four make up air inlets for cooling the carapace and sweeping stray radiation from the ammo magazines:

And an image sans flash to better show the new detail:

Demonstrating that the Blackadder clearly needs to get a life or at the very least a better grip on reality...............

Looking good BA. The detail still amazes me, and it is exciting to see it get a coat of primer. Moving along, almost ready to smite the foes of the Emperor.

Nah man don't be boring. What you're doing is fantastic. :ok:

What seat is this?

I found this in my son's bitz box and I was wondering if anyone can identify what kit it came from?

Don't worry mate, we all love a bit of madness!

Awesome is not a word I use lightly but it is fitting here!

I'm afraid I don't recognise the flight seat but if you do find out could you let me know?
