    I guess you *could* argue that due to the extreme size of the Titan, the poor photographer had to use a hefty wide angle lens, leading to lots of distortion. But yeah, the picture is inspiring.

    Once again Serendipity Rears Its Ugly Head.


    I began this Mega Blaster shortly after the Plasma Cannon but due to the conflict in scales I wasn't sure how large to make the arm weapons so I left it undone.


    As I built the body and legs it became apparent that both weapons could be ridiculously too large or too small.


    Originally I thought a meter tall (39 inches) would be a good height for an Emperor Titan but proportion wise as I built it I had to keep correcting the height.


    At least four to six times at least. A month or so ago I increased the length of the thigh about 6.35 centimeters (2.5 inches). Hopefully for the last time.


    The model now stands about 1,27 meters (50 inches) with still the spires on the bastions to go adding another six to eight inches.

    I managed to make the drum training device which is a lot more business-like than the forked yoke bracket. that is seen on the original Joazzz2 creation.

    A dry run assembly today with a side by side comparison of the Mega Blaster and the Plasm Blaster Cannons....

    confirmed that the arm weapons are in a close scale to the rest of the Emperor Titan.

    A final touch today is the forward muzzle plate with a stylized 40K skull embellishment to start off the fine detailing.

    You truly are the closest we can get to a real-life adeptus mechanicus techpriest... BA, the one-man forgeworld.

    Too bad that beast isn't a prototype to go into mass(ish) production

    Serendipity Doo,


    I found just what I was looking for; I love the internet.


    What the doctor ordered. The rear assembly of a Mega blaster that can be adapted to my construct with a minimum of alteration.


    Just assemble a couple of boxlike structures and attach the elevation drum gear.

    Then somewhat faithfully copy the detail and we'll have the suitable energy producing end of the Helstrum Megablaster.

    I even have some of the armour to replicate.


    Ahhh! It;s Christmas.

    My son who is an avid 3D printer fan muses that even printing this would be cost prohibitive.

    Despite Appearances,


    The clothes pins are on the rear of this piece.


    The first 3 images are of the paper template I made to pattern the drum gear saddle.

    (I just make names for these parts as I go.)


    I made the pattern in full originally....

    Although the pattern fit rather well I found making the pieces would be easier if I made them in two parts.


    Paper seen here....

    Than to make the styrene piece from the pattern in one whole piece.


    The plastic pieces installed....

    The result appears satisfactory.

    Apples and Oranges:


    Or


    Is my face red?


    A day or two ago I was apprised that the images I was using for my Hellstrom weapon were of a Chain Ammo weapon called a Mega Gatling cannon. :blush: (Why is there no blush emoji?)


    In defence I rationalized that the overall basic counterbalance form is what I was looking for and not the actual details.


    But in retrospect it is plain as day that the curved structure on the lower edge of the center section does readily show an ammo belt feed replete with 6 rounds and a bolt action loader.


    The ammo box being the rear third section of this very heavy weapon. (The six PVC tubes alone weigh a couple of pounds .)


    While both arm weapons at this point weigh 2 pounds each the front end moment of the Plasma Blaster is 4 ounces and 10 ounces for the Hellstorm Cannon.


    Detail, details.....


    Interestingly enough it is precisely what I was looking for when I first began this multi-barreled weapon I.E. a projectile firing weapon.


    So now I have the option of both a 5 barreled energy weapon (redundant with the Plasma Cannon). A quick change Hellstorm Cannon and a six barrel Gatling gun.
