I've learned to visualize how something will look once your done with something..and with the current look of the interior(size and shape) There will be an insane amount of detail. WHICH IN TURN IS GETTING ME QUITE EXCITED! What models will you be using for the crew and how many will you be adding? Will you only be adding extra seats? You could also try adding a Star Trek feel? Or is there a picture you are going off of?

I have a mental image of what I want to accomplish similar to a Reaver configuration but greatly larger. Behind the two seated Sensori there will be two standing crew members on either side behind them in the rear center of the Flight station is the Princep in his tank attended by a Moderati.......... behind them will be the neck corridor ending at the Blast door which opens onto the Command deck ...............See below:

It's been quite some time since I demonstrated the removable Command deck so I'll begin by showing the recess with the Command deck removed.

Of course the model is upside down for clarity and to give a good view of the slot the Command deck fit into.

The asymmetry between the left and rig side is not apparent in the first photo but the last the show the cutout for the gantry door vestibule. A little modification I had to make so the rear door to nowhere lined up with the Command deck.

Below is the Command deck itself right side up and the model in the background is still upside down with a good shot at the vestibule on the left side.

Is that clear?

A shot of the Command deck half inserted inverted into the hull recess both components are now upside down for clarity..............is that clear?

And another shot from a lower angle of both components prior to assembling and installing the blast door that isolates the cockpit. Not shown as yet as the paint isn't dry.

Forgot to take these images. Command deck fully inserted showing access to the connecting tunnel to the Flight deck and cockpit. The two naves on either side of the tunnel were going to be sanitary facilities but I was apprised do to bio-engineering of the crew there is no necessity for necessaries.

Some sort of bag I suppose.............

And the frame of the blast door component fits just right. Whew!

Don't know why I haven't commented or given you rep yet. Amazing work. Simply amazing. Awe inspiring, even. Good job Blackadder. Have some rep. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Thanks,

Referring back a dozen pages or so concern was expressed as to where the pocket doors would slide when they were opened. That problem appears to have been resolved although if I decide to re-install the WC's, they will be out of service when the pocket doors are opened.

Thanks,

High-tech futuristic door and frame I need 3 of these for the Command deck alone. I should have picked an simpler door assembly.

I've just about reached my limit of patience in rendering detail. I'm a bit out of practice working this fine.

Here is a good point to show how I cut fine detail pieces not that I am as proficient as some who work with styrene but this works for me.

You will note that the door detail is still attached to the sheet (Which is upside down BTW the top of the door is at the bottom of the image). This gives you more of an area to hold onto while you are cutting the detail. After the lines are cut and the holes are final filed then I separate the piece from the sheet.

This is one of the few times I use a #11 Xacto tip for cutting, I usually use it to pick up tiny objects such as rivets to place them on the work.

I cut out any holes first which saves you from tearing the plastic trying to cut close to an edge. For some reason cutting the hole after you have done you straight slices causes the blade to wander.....

I'm trying something new cutting on cork board which seems to work rather well, I usually cut on an old wood butchers block board.

You can see at the top of the image the sketched in door detail for a slightly smaller door. That will be the door to the vestibule leading to the rear exterior door on the back of the Titan.

After you have rough cut the holes with the knife, dress the edges and rounded corners with jeweler's files and or diamond needle files and yes that is an steel emery nail board; an indispensable trimming tool.

I seem to have reached my limit attempting usable door frames for the side doors. I suppose I shall just go for the chiclet style wall panels so prevalent in SF venues. The door frames I coveted were much too fine in detail to render in a workable fashion.

The flash image reveals crudeness in the frame opening that I hope to remedy with the modified door trim.

Well that's about it for this builder, I've devoted enough time to this door assembly not that I've put in a lot of time to this but enough already, unless I have a major epiphany the door is done as is............. Yeesh! :D

The catwalks installed under the carapace in a rough and tumble fashion awaiting a touch of refinement and hand rails. Note that the command deck is not slid all the way into the slot so the rough front ends of the catwalks are exposed.

These catwalks will adjoin the front walks out to the main guns for servicing with appropriate ladder assemblies to the gun stanchions down to the guns themselves.

The left side walk with access to the Command deck vestibule..........

So far almost all the interior is "plug in" modular so painting and view interior detail shouldn't be a problem.

The only thing that bothers me is this is beginning to look like the promenade deck on the Titanic and there's not enough space for the deck chairs..........

By ''set for life'' are you implying that life sentences can be meted out for ''copyright infringements?''

Thanks for the links Jaysen I'll check them out after I finish updating............

God's Blud marry if'n it hasn't been many a fortnight since I hung this abomination together in one piece. What strikes me the most is the numerous areas not yet adorn with detail on the exterior.

I've been working on the interior for at least two weeks and yesterday I started on the engineering level............... Since there are many interlocking pieces to the lowest deck I had to be sure the whole of the construct could be assembled.

On the plus side it can but on the minus side the leg joints and waist joints barely support the weight. I was sure that would be the case and have allowed for the 2.5 kilos the upper body weight.

The 1/4 inch hip bolts still need to be 'Loctited' once the final hip assembly is made but for now I'm afraid 'Dirty Harry' must stand splayed legged.

The straight on overall front view; the first wholly assembled image since before I built the Turbolazers.........

A very precarious infantryman's eye view of the God Machine............

A shot of the side armour fully installed but still a lot of detail needs to be added to the side of the carapace..........

http://i.imgur.com/OeIMqrX.jpg


The upper waist rotation plate and the bottom of the pelvis block are totally devoid of detail; Fa!

In all I am quite pleased with the results after almost exactly a years work but I would hazard a minimum of six more months to completion.

'Ya snooze, ya lose" as they say. Welcome back..............

It's anyones guess what these triangular components are from a safety crib side rail to a cooling grid for airconditioning. I ran out of images for this area on the DS Warlord so I am referencing the SM game Warlord Titan

Anyway here is the inner panel of the chest armour and the upper engineering viewing window panel in the closed position.

And here we have it in the open position to permit viewing of the interior detail. This whole central hull of the Titan is very strong but it looks like a house of cards.

here we have the left side view with the Command deck gallery slid into place.

and lastly the overall quarter view showing the reworked rear door frame just to demonstrate the fallibility of the Blackadder and a flash image of the same area above.

All I can say is "WOW!" I wish I had half your skill with plasticard.
Note to Jaysen, I checked out your Emperor Titan thread and sadly almost all your thumbs are inactive. Some of the text piqued my interest but the accompanying images were blocked. I have a recommendation. I tried using cheaper material to make an armature for my Warhound and Thunderhawk and found that the shortcut wasn't worth the hassle of finding a compatible adhesive. That's why I opted for a strict styrene only model for my Warlord.

Buying styrene wholesale is the way to go. Almost any Industrial Park has a bulk styrene distributer. Check out your locals on google. It's a lot easier working with a single material. Any chance of viewing your Emperor's recent images?
