  • Creating your own Titan

    Introduction: This is going to be my very first article in this comunity. what I want to do is to tell you something about my latest project and maybe giving some of you a bit of inspiration with it. The project:I love the space wolves, but I also do like the imperial guard with its' huge variety of weapons and vehicles as well. and because of the fact that my wolves are on a mission on a imperial planet for about 30 years now, the local forces took over some of the space wolves rites and designs. they even let them get part of their own culture.-so from now on I do no longer have any problems with integrating non space-marine-vehicles in my current army. of course I had many other ideas new vehicle-creations as well, but in the end I decided to build a walker, which should fit in a kind of wolvish scheme.Article-structure:first of all I want this article to privide you as many wip-steps as possible. Therefore I will also link pictures of stati in it I undid some steps later, just for giving you an idea of all of the possible directions the project could have gone so far ... most of the pictures I will leave uncommented for the very first time. of course I will add information to it and give answers to any of your questions wich might occour later on.but now lets start .... :first I started cutting enough space out of a land-speeder cockpit to provide a third seat for the commander. then I started putting parts together, just to get an idea of what is possible .... aferwards I noticed that the commander would not have any chance to get to his seat from inside the titan. ... therefore I needed to create some kind of space in between the other two crew-members ...  I decided to use the parts from the defiler kit for the legs and rearanged them a little bit. for defending himself I also added a door-gunner for the back I took the landraider exhausts this is my very first brainstorm of how a foot could be build ... :-) of course I also had to increase the main-weapons' size. so I simply gave them long barrels. the dark part on top is the back of a 1/35 leopard2 tank and here's the second door-gunner. I made him leaning with his knee on the rail which also supports his heavy bolter. now I started adding some equipment to the cockpit. I started with tft-touch-screens ... ;-) after that the head was about to get his wolvish style by getting some teeth and a wolf-skull-like design. I kept the bolters movable by using lego/legs as mechanical connection. I didn't like its' old hipp-design. so I had no choice than to change it. once again I used the lk's from an LandRaider and combined them with parts from the defilers' legs. on this picture you can see the latest foot-design. the metal-looking parts are the bolters from a hurrican-bolter-system taken from the LR-crusader.  I added some armor and details and the leg was almost finished. now the front of the leg-mounting had to be done ... .  I wanted the titan to provide transport-capacity for 10 humans. but because of its' height  had no other chance to get the crew to ground, than attaching a kind of elevator-mechanism to it, which at least brings them down half the way.. of course this thing is not finished yet, but I hope you enjoyed this article allthough. as soon as i've continued working on it I'll update this article and if everything works fine I hope to finish it within the next weeks.---------(please excuse my bad english, but I think almost everything should at least be comprehensible.) comments are highly appreciated :-)

    How to make a cheap yet effective spray booth.

    Hello everyone. I'm here to show you how to make a nice spray booth for airbrushing. I took what I learned from watching different videos and came up with what worked best for me. After collecting all the items, the job of putting everything together actually only took me about 30 minutes. Below is the list of items you will need.

    1.) Plastic storage tub $6-$10 (Mine was free because I found it in the garage).
    2.) Ventilation fan $18
    3.) Air... read more
