Hope you'll manage to get everything fixed again... At least this thread is a decent repository of knowledge on how it goes together?

Still having account troubles as well I see...

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

Quarter Galleries:

For lack of a better term; this is the area I'll be working on

The images are pretty much self explanatory; I'll be framing out the "Quarter Galleries" with cut Florescent light panel waffle diffusers purchased at Home Depot.

The panels are made of very hard and brittle styrene plastic but are plenty durable for framing and is cheap compared to hobby shop styrene. About 4 feet long and about 2 feet wide metric users can do the math....;)

I'm equally comfortable in Metric and Imperial and find advantages and disadvantages in both. Having done a good deal of construction work in the private sector I find the Imperial system easier than than the metric but all European machinery is in metric so I had to learn it as well. In my endeavors in carpentry I found the Imperial much superior to the Metric but in scientific the Metric is King. In the hobby field Metric works for 'Coarse' measurements but for 'Fine' you just can't beat a 1/64 inch scale. :D

The Ground Floor:

Actually about one hundred fifty feet above the ground but what the hey. The superstructure of this Titan is what makes it unique and I've been putting it off long enough trying to come up with something earthshaking. Try as I might I just cannot top Joazzz2's incredible architecture so I'll just copy that so first the gatehouse battlements sometimes called the barbican.

Playing Catch up with this Forum. Somehow it got lost????
Barbican Spires

The Barbican corner reinforcements have been enclosed and This evening I began creating the ornamental spires to cap the corners.

These are purely decorative being too narrow for occupation.....

But no doubt they serve some 40K esoteric purpose

Anyway there are 16 of them and I have managed to complete one and made inroads on seven others before saying ENOUGH!

Splendid work old boy, the beast arises! As an aside, is that a younger Blackadder in the first photo on the wall?
