That must be hard on the eyes and patience.

The tedium comes from waiting for the glue to dry between applying each gear tooth and keeping the spacing level. Even if you apply yourself to other projects this type of work is trying on your patience.

Disappointing:

To say the least but it's good to show your failures occasionally lest you become too full of yourself.

I think I am getting tired of replicating this weapon The above image of the er whatever this is and the image below which I thought would be so cool just didn't come out as I had hoped.

I can only mutter "Meh!" Not even good enough for Gov'ment work.

Faa!

What I Meant By Disappointing: (I wasn't fishing for compliments) :D

I suppose I should explain what I meant by disappointing but something did not look right about the panels on either side of the muzzle and the five exhaust ports between the vertical coils. I researched a lot last night and finally found an image that shows where I went wrong. It is irritating that I did not perceive this earlier; D**n!

Note to Jabba,

I had considered clear rod and tubing for the coils including fluorescent weed whip monofilament but could not find a suitable diameter and clear filament made it look too toylike.

These are the best images I have managed to come up with and presumably they are very current as I don't recall seeing them before. The front view shows the heatsinks (Whatever) are slightly convex on either side of the muzzle and the muzzle itself is exquisitely detailed for my purposes Much better than any previous image.

The rear image shows the five exhaust ports and demonstrates where my error lies. I have mine vertical and the actual ports are inclined toward the rear.

I'm still hoping to find detailed unpainted top and bottom images of both the muzzle area and the rear area aft of the coils; areas sorely neglected in images thus far. I also need a view of the back of the weapon.

In and Out of the Doldrums:

Yesterday I found myself dissatisfied with the progress of this construct. Today after finding what was the problem I'm optimistic about the progress.

Plus I found an image that shows the length of the Primary weapons at about 13 inches.

The SunFury as it is in the images at present without the rear components is 14 inches so the scale is correct as well.

It's been said that the only reason that people go to Cockroach Races is to see a Cockroach crash.

By extension; the only reason people view my threads is to see me Frak up.

Well sorry to disappoint but it ain't gonna happen this day. Today is the first time I have aligned and imaged my Imperator and the never ending Plasma Blaster project together......

and it seems to be in the right ballpark scale-wise.

I think everyone watches your plog to see what can be achieved! To see failure I look to my own table😂

Time to Take Stock:

I've reached a point where I need to economize on the number of components to duplicate and for the past week I've been thinking of a way to save work on making redundant items and I believe I have come up with a way.

https://i.imgur.com/ZeUtl3H.jpg


The suspender arm disc was labor intensive especially if I have to make one for each weapon variant so below is a removable Mount Disc Component that I will be making for each of the two weapon arms which will facilitate rapid exchange of weapon types with the exception of the CC claw which i am given to understand is not a usual Emperor Titan Weapon anyway.

I included a scale on the top image, even though it is only 2/3 of it's ultimate dimension, for the convenience of those who have requested a size reference.
