    The soccer ball shaped one is good, I reckon (or should I say "yon fitba shaped yin." Gotta keep it real, like )

    The detailing is looking awesome on the last set of pics. Every time I see your updates I can't help but imagine what I would do in your situation, and every time I have to concede I would never have got there. The attention to detail is simply beyond me. Once again, hats off to Mr. Blackadder

    Would like to chip in with using the soccer ball style too!

    as always, still watching this thread and still loving it.

    Ha bet you thought I'd forgotten about this. Truth is I've been repairing plumbing and wiring and installing a new water heater and hadn't much time for building but that's behind me for a couple of days so back to the cockpit design. Actually I had time to reflect how to proceed with this and have come up with a way to build a hollow flight deck.


    Seen below compared to Lucie's cockpit the Warlord's is about three times larger which compares well as the Warlord is three times taller than the Warhound.

    Here you see the footing for the interior floor and the inner edge of the prominent overbite of the head armour.

    I haven't a clue what I am doing guessing at angles and sizes this head construct should prove interesting. It's much the same way I built the arms for Lucie so I can only that lightning does strike twice in the same place or in this case three times.

    Ya know when I was a kid there was a show on TV, "Jon Gnagy's 'Learn to Draw'." I used to watch that show religiously. I had the Jon Gnagy book, pencils, eraser, sketchpad, charcoal,.... you name it I had it. That SOB would start drawing some forest scene or Steam engine at the station and I was furiously following along trying to do everything that bast---d did and he'd be put the frame on his work and my jaw was on the floor. You just couldn't keep up with him.


    I thought it might be fun for you to see how the Blackadder works so I'm going to be taking pictures step by step of this head assembly so you can see that I haven't the vaguest idea what I am going to do next. I have no mechanical drawings, templates, or sketches to go by except for the G--D----- images DS posted. A lot of people ask for templates and I feel bad that I can't provide them because there aren't any, it's all in my head so we can both see how this cockpit module progresses for better or worse because it could be a total fiasco..............

    I Have to admit the head is coming along swimmingly The relative size seems good and the movement range seems adequate. also most of the damage to Lucie has been repaired; just remounting the guns with magnets to go.

    I had Lucie pose with the new titan for a size comparison and she is dwarfed by the Warlord; I may have to make a Reaver just to take up the gap

    Here we have the Warlord looking right,

    looking down to the right a bit unnerving from this angle thank the Emperor she's not armed.

    I have to reposition the chest/neck armour a bit as the head armour won't clear when it's installed.

    Is your neck long enough? The pivot point on your reference photo looks to me like that point is more inline with the top of the chest armour and perhaps a MM or two farther...

    Now I'm curious to see what you use to cover the joint between the head and neck, so that it still moves but no open spaces.

    Answer 1, Ya know Mud duck I just don't know I'm sticking my neck out (groan) imaging this as I build in much the same way as when I built the megabolter and turbolaser for Lucie and I hope I don't fall flat on my egg smeared face but the neck module telescopes about an inch so I have that much leeway and I could extend it longer if needs be. Right now I'm more concerned with it being too long than too short.

    The Blackadder is very popular with the ladies for his consideration BTW.

    Answer 2, So am I!

    I neglected to mention the telescoping feature of the neck module prompting some to comment that the neck was too short. I prefer to rationalize that the neck in full extension is scout mode and retracted is battle mode.


    Thats my story take it or leave it

    Sounds plausible Blackadder ! Are you fitting explosives in the neck for jettising the head when used as an escape pod ?

    There is nothing new under the Sun, the more I work on this thing the more it reminds me of the snout of a Diplodocus Carnegii.

    Dude I'm tell'n ya women have a lot of goodies that they keep from us and I'm not talk'n 'bout the obvious but chances are your ol' lady has a spatter shield that she uses when she fries up those 'burgers and that is just scream'n to be replaced. If its like my old lady there are rents in it and its all wrinkled (I'm talk'n 'bout the splatter shield now.....) and its time for a new one (Still talk'n 'bout the splatter shield). Imagine the joy on yer spouse's mug when you give her a new one for Christmas and what better way to help the environment than to recycle the old one in your scratch projects......

    Here is mine as new grills for the Warlord cockpit intakes or whathaveyou.

    I admire your optimism; I have found its just about impossible not to get in trouble when it comes to incurring a woman's ire so the resigned man may as well push the envelope now and again just to keep his self respect.

    How do you like that; unsolicited philosophy now.


    Hopefully the results of last night reverie will not show up too much on todays offering.......


    This morning I cut the lozenge shaped vents that define the screens and before I glue on the right side I'm taking a picture that you might know how it was accomplished.


    The radius of the side curve where it wraps around the snout seems almost perfect; about a quarter of a millimeter too big on the bottom but not enough to quibble over if the other side matches.

    Most of these vents will be covered with the face armour but if you peer really hard under that armour you will see that the whole vent opening is there.


    Crazy I know but I need the practice.

    The lozenge shaped vents came out fairly decent but not as well crafted as Mr Smith's. I wonder how he made his? I made mine with a Martini in hand which I wouldn't recommend to would be modelers handling razor sharp knives and the like and there seems to be a slackening of quality.

    But they should suffice for this titan.

    The pencil scribed lines are for the face shield which I shall attempt next. This shield gives the head the anthropomorphic quality from which the upper lip and cockpit windshield detracts.

    What would give the head a more human appearance would be a nose but that would just look silly. We're not going there.

    Its about time to start considering the scale of the furniture and crew in the cockpit. I'm getting an idea of the height of the seated figures so they might peer out of the windscreen. The seated Princep should be on a raised dais and a Moderatus standing in attendance. Two seated helmsmen; a Sensorus and a Steersman. The latter two individuals I have in abundance but I need candidates for the Princep and Moderatus?

    In the warlord and imperator class titans the princeps is supendend permanently floating within a sealed tank of liquid and interacts with the titan via cables plugged to his body and head, a bit like people in the matrix lol.

    So the uniform wont matter, he'd likely be naked in the fetal position.

    A quick search of the coolmini store brought up a model of a naked bald male called Kevinicus, looks like it could be quite simple to covert without too much hassle, a few cuts and a bit of bending here and there, fold the head down toward the chest then add a few cables lol.
