Put a balcony on it with various small arms people and techpriests etc. The massive titan will have thousands of menials scrabbling about looking busy!

Brother Dextrous you've read my mind.

Not so much...........

Rear Heat Exchanger and Exhaust Ports:

The waffle styrene panels are proving their worth.

The constructions I make are far more easy to build, stable, and true to square without having to resort to extreme measures in fabricating.

These two shots of the assembly on the desk and mounted on the model demonstrate the durability of the construction.....

Whereas before it resembled a house of cards.

Thar's Gold In Them Thar Hills...........

Of recyclable trash that is.

I struck paydirt last month when I saw this discarded tv. Readymade Static louvers says I for my Emperor Titan.



All that needs be done is cut them out and install them.

It's worth a shot...........

Heat Exchangers Sheathed:

They look a tad large but I'm hoping once the rest of the stern/back whatever is made they will blend in.

I was too conservative in my estimate of the size of the rear deck but no matter I can spline on an addition.

Now for the side intakes.

The Basic Structure:

Is pretty much delineated. Now it just remains to fill the void left by raising the superstructure platform about four inches.I already have ideas about adding another deck to the interior and with access to the rear of the titan in the mode of the FW Warlord That should fill the space nicely.

I spent the past couple of days building another pair of Aquilae for the rear portion of the Cathedral platform just because it's there.

https://i.imgur.com/1M68If6.jpg


The rear panel was quite an effort to design especially so the whole thing can be disassembled readily.

https://i.imgur.com/EOYSz7z.jpg


Right now it just hangs on the back by friction but eventually it will have locks to hold it to the main structure.

Amazingly it's less than a millimeter off symmetry wise.

Coming Together:

In a burst of optimism I have a feeling that this is somehow coming together.

In this 360° panorama you can get an idea of the magnitude of this construction

Awright so a few images are missing but you get the idea.

She's Got Legs

Well she's gonna have legs but we have to start with a single step (Groan!)

First the basics.... The Greaves



I'm using a 3D image provided by joazzz2 on Deviant art for my inspiration

One of the problems with the representation of many Imperial Titans I notice, especially those that CoD for detailing bitz, is the panels are not truncated. This causes a boxy square look that is ęsthetically unpleasing.

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


So to begin with we are going to sneak up on the correct angle incrementally.....

I'm only going to do one this time in case this doesn't work out.

You've gotta get these grids

If you're gonna build an Imperator.

These are a godsend for this type of construction.

Tipping the greave to match the 3D image brings home what this skeletal structure will eventually become.

I just hope they are not too big or too small

the Goldilocks conundrum......... :D

Image taken earlier today leaves me a bit up in the air regarding proper sizing. Then I thought too small. but they've become so massive.
