Personally I would avoid making the close combat claw for the emperor titan, it really is a dedicated ranged weapons platform and too slow to be getting into a fist fight, of course, you could always use it on your warlord and it does look cool.

It Really only has one purpose; to punch a Mega-Gargant in the face.

Well as one of my sergeants used to say "..if you're gonna be a bear, be a grizzly!"

Weekend Update:

I had hoped to be further along in the rear mechanisms by now but I ran into a bit of a snag when I realized the the rear section of the weapon expanded further than the surface armour surrounding the mount disk. Since my gun is wider overall than the Warlord weapon I have decided to not expand this section unless I see the overall appeal of the Plasma Blaster is compromised.

Another modification is the rear mount must also be removable and be able to slip onto the mount disk assembly which should pose no problem but was something I had not anticipated.

Now that that is recognized I can proceed with the actual manufacture of the rear sections.

One Week Later:

It's been a busy week but I managed to fit in a bit of building. The biggest accomplishment is a second Arms Mount section for the other armament items.

It is a source of irritation to me that each of these disc mount appendages seem dedicated to a particular weapon so hopefully I can circumvent this need for redundancy by making a generic disc and adding a discrete weapons module pack for each weapon I produce. The Discs are really time consuming to make.

So above we have the Plasma Blaster modular assembly that slips together as two pieces and subsequently in the image below the sections installed on the Plasma blaster body......

Next the Meta Snail module...........

Cochlear Implant:

I'm frequently asked how I develop a construction from just images on a computer screen. and I suppose this is a prime demonstration candidate. the Cochlear shaped reactor core at the back end of the Plasma Blaster. Since I already had the disc mount assembly it was a simple matter of transporting the dimensions off the disc to the rectangular grid material and eyeballing the divisions on the screen I used my compass to define where the concentric components would be arranged.

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


Using the mount block module I made a U shaped construction of the apparent size of the basic structure and alternately layered 0.040 inch sheet styrene with the same sized grid material until I had a sufficient thickness with two left pieces over for the final rough detail.

So finally we have the size of the complete weapon realized at least in the rough.

and now I can take on the actual upper mount arm............

That's About the Size of It:

I finally can appreciate the size of this construct and I am revisiting my anxiety over the scale Vis--vis the actual Titan.

Just a Quick One Today:

Working on the reactor coil (whatever) It's a complex piece of machinery with a lot of delicate parts. The Plastic cement eats through the curved 0.040 inch square stock instantly so I had to use 0.5 inch tubing for the ends of the slots.

It seems to work okay.

When Will There Be An End?

I am so sick of this weapon. It's like pushing a snowball uphill. The bigger it gets the harder it is to push it further...

https://i.imgur.com/67h9Z7P.jpg


My only consolation is; the rest of the weapons will be a piece of cake in comparison......

https://i.imgur.com/6wvPzCp.jpg


The reactor core is almost complete, I need only add 13 more silver coils and the rest will be eyewash.....

https://i.imgur.com/ZY6Yr3Z.jpg


Last night I built the obverse side and am about ready to install the silver coils on it as well.
