Well I finally found a way for my poor ass to buy a FW titan, and I got to say their is so much flashing, and resin channels left on the thing I had to use a hack saw to get some of it off.

So to make the rest of the process of actually constructing my model more..tolerable I would appreciate advice from other who have undertaken building a FW super heavy.

well, once you cleaned all the shit off, useing files, fine sand paper and so on, make sure you give the model a very good wash useing warm water and washing up liquid, to remove all the mold release agents and any grease left behind when you was clean the flash and mold lines off. once thats all done, do a dry fit of all the components to keep for gaps, and see where you will need to use GS and where you will need to drill for pinning the joints. once you work out where you need to drill and fill, it be a case of useing either super glue or an epoxy glue.
also have a look at LTP's reaver thread here

I have no experience in this area myself but as mentioned above ltp's thread is a good place to start. With the feet do lots of test assembly, they are very complex and it is not unusual to get them assembled to find that a foot is posed wrong or a toe is not touching the ground like it should be. I would strongly suggest that you pose it with one foot flat on the ground and the other partially lifted. Anything more complex than this would be very difficult to carry off. Of course if you are in doubt then put both feet flat on the ground.(Easier to achieve and makes it easier to do without a base.) Also read every warhound thread in the project logs section. There are some brilliant builds there which highlight some of my points.

Dry Fitting, and a good wash in hot water are the two important tips,

Have fun.
