    Corner turrets and the intermediate pointy things are basically done.

    Next up, the Citadel base.

    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 virtually carbon copies of the front components. My grandiose idea of a kit bash citadel has 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.

    On another aside I can't believe I only took one picture of this most recent construction!

    Flying Buttresses;


    Once again these seemingly simple constructs are labor intensive

    A box like structure seven times longer than it's wide and I need four of them.

    Even with the egg crate material and the resources of industrial quality styrene 0.040" (1,0 millimeter) sheets it's taken a while to manufacture just one. but the next three should take much less time

    Now It Can Be Told:

    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.

    I took it on myself to spare my erstwhile readers the agony of enduring repetitive exposition and bit by bit gluing that which was previously documented ad nauseam.

    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 detailing to do!!!!

    Thanks for the reply and welcome aboard.

    Interesting that I just resumed posting yesterday.....

    Wow, it has been some time since I worked on this project but over the past week I've finally felt well enough to rekindle my interest in completing this effort.

    As some have perceived I may have contracted the Corona virus but I couldn't be tested for sure as yet. Today I am going to be tested for the presence of antibodies.

    Anyway, over the past week or so I've made some inroads into how to proceed with the superstructure and begun to make the base for the rear pair of towers.


    Also for scale I've included the Skitarii figure and one of the decorative statures I ultimately plan to incorporate into the towers.

    Without going back to view the last developments I posted regarding the interior engineering levels I've included this as well.


    Thanks for all the wishes concerning my recovery.

    I'm glad to see you back @Blackadder. Hope you will fully recovered soon.
    And of course I'm looking forward to see more on this beast.

    Glad to hear you are doing ok Blackadder. And I'm happy that you are working on this again. Such a massive project, in both scale and ambition.

    Thanks for the reply.....
    First Time Together This Year:


    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.

    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 structures on the deck. There will be a cathedral roof between the two rear towers and the huge main gun will protrude between the statues.

    It's a surprise even for ME!
