It's ok, I'll find a way to check them out. As for building, are you taking the aluminum cans out and replacing them with pvc piping now that you have more available? Seems like this would be a much easier skeleton to make as you can get angle joints and such and just build around it. it's also be much stronger.

Yes, I've made a 2" PVC pipe skeleton from sections of pipe, 22.5 degree bends, 90 degree bends, three-way joints, and couplers.

I really don't like the 90 degree bends on the leg to hip joint, so I intend to almost completely cover this with a facade, like in previous sketches. I intend to build this with 3" PVC couplers, cut down and added to to make them look like a double sided ball and socket type joint (like a volkswagen beetle's drive axle) with three pistons on the outside.

But, before I can do any of that, I have to build the lower torso. Originally, I thought of using a Necron Monolith and then adding pieces to it. We'll see.

I figured out the attachment problem. My camera's resolution was set too high.

I did a little more work on the Titan. Of course, there's really no such thing as a 'little' anything with this thing.

Man...all I had in Iraq was my foot locker to paint on and a few guardsmen...and even then I barely got any of them done, and we were out there for almost 2 years! Best of luck to you man!

I was stuck on Camp Leatherneck for most of my deployment, so had some time to do stuff. I've been back since last Christmas.

I'm not sure what to do about the 6 secondary weapons. The plan was to put missile launchers into the pauldron area of the shoulders and have a megabolter at the top of each bastion building. But, that still leaves two weapons. What do you guys think? Should I put one coming out of the chaple? Or maybe split the two bastions and have a mid-level turret as well as the roof mounted megabolters?
