Thanks for the reply,

A Man A Plan

Whom I kidding, it's all serendipity.......

I've worked long and hard to reach this point this evening but these six images make it worth it. Every thing is falling into place including the three story engineering compartment with it's 15 foot ceilings.

The fusion reactor will take up two of those decks.

The lower deck will open onto the platform under the head for the Adeptus Mechanicus Priests to supervise the battle a hundred feet above the fray

The upper balcony and promenade with egress through the blast doors to the cockpit

Finally an overall view of the three decks

It's going to take a lot of bitz to clutter up all this space.

It's been some time since I posted but I have been working; mainly on the interior which must be done before I design the back structure. So from where we left off I had just made the Command deck balcony so here is the forward bulkhead complete with blast doors, and pocket passage doors to the cockpit.

This design is a copy of the Warlord Blast door assembly slightly enlarged and more functional plus I had a lot more room to work with so the design is more refined.

It's amazing how much more roomy this Emperor is compared to the Warlord.

Head and Neck Passage Assembly

The Emperor Titan head and neck passage assembly basically accomplished and ready to install as a component although the detailing is far from completed.

Plan Ahea
d

Horrors, I ran out of CoD Manufactorum Bitz.

I have become accustomed to accessing my CoD bitz box for whatever details I need so it came as a great surprise last evening when I found I had exhausted the larder.

Fortunately ebay had a kit at a reasonable price and it will be delivered next month on the fifth. Whew!

Meanwhile I have plenty to occupy my time working around the omission.

Well enough procrastinating, it's a dirty job but I must address it. The rear of the Titan has to be interlocking with somewhat hidden seams but also allow the decks to be drawn out easily to view the interior. Yet the whole thing must be pinned together so the deck don't fall out when handled.

it's going to be hard to see these pieces in place so here they are unassembled.

Wanna See Everybody From Behind

So the first step of building the back elevation is roughed out and two more decks to go.

https://i.imgur.com/E2WkIJj.jpg


I've no idea what these compartments do. I do know there are louvered exhaust ports on either side of the center structure.

Interior detail is lining up satisfactorily.

In A Rears

The rear panels are finally underway and the coordination with the interior is satisfactory. Everything is lining up as if it were planned.

The two side chambers have their reinforcing floors and ceilings

Next up, the engineering compart rear wall and the completion of the pelvic /hip plate

Problem:

When I built this Titan I raised the head off the Promenade deck because it looked too close and the function of the head to 'look' down was impeded.

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


The artist had no such problem because he had the flexibility of adjusting the position of the head to suit his whim

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


but in the real world that option is not available to me

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


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


So now I am in the position of filling 4 inches of space with extemporaneous Titan gobbledygook to fill this void :D

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


Such is the pitfalls of scratch building without a plan. :D
