It's been a busy month and I'm afraid the Emperor has taken a back seat compared to my other more pressing endeavors. I did manage to cobble together the rear bastions of the superstructure which are virtuallycarbon copies of the front components. My grandioseidea of a kit bash citadelhas been greatly reconsidered because such a structure would compromise the theme of the scratch work.
"There is no shortcut to glory." It's a lesson I seem destined to relearn with every model I attempt.
After a month hiatus where I spent the time duplicating the upper works previously accomplished I am approaching the point where four bastions are ready to have the surface sheets applied. https://i.imgur.com/t0LlSiP.jpg
I took it on myself to spare my erstwhile readers the agony of enduring repetitiveexposition and bit by bit gluing that which was previously documented ad nauseam. https://i.imgur.com/kvUFLCA.jpg
So this is where we are on the superstructure and I have to say I am elated that this is finally approaching completion, component wise that is; there is still a load of detailingto do!!!!
Toppling damage has been repaired. Blackadder is on the mend. All's right with the world and today is the first time I am putting this all together for a progress report. TADA!
First I am finally confident I have solved the problem of the superstructure so here is the solution.
The egg crate structure at the rear of the deck can be shifted back as needs be but it will form the base for the rear superstructure components. https://i.imgur.com/Y6RhhcK.jpg
The blue boxes simulate the height of the rear components above the front components. It was there that I had the problem and now we can proceed with the structureson the deck. There will be a cathedral roof between the two rear towers and the huge main gun will protrude between the statues. https://i.imgur.com/Ht6FCh9.jpg
Of course I had no idea how big to make it and it has been one of my main concerns whether it was too big or too small for all these years until yesterday as I write.
Yesterday with the Titan in one piece for the first time this year I decided to bite the bullet and hang the weapon on the mount arm with the following result. https://i.imgur.com/fiBcKXJ.jpg
I guess it's no secret I work entirely without plans; so when perusing the only image I have of this beastie for the umpteenth time I rediscovered the [email protected] thing has minarets WITH FLYING BUTTRESSES!!! Egad!
The problem is because of the perspective of the image and the obscuring smoke it's hard to determine what the bottom of these minarets look like and the author of this marvelous 3D monstrosity has not come forth with a clearer view.
I'm going to have to guesstimate the size and scale of these improbable appurtenances.
