Blackadder Attempts to build an Imperial Warmonger Titan

A Budding Neophyte: Back in the days when the Blackadder was a budding neophyte he attempted to make a Plasma Blaster for a StormBlade variant. The result was of indifferent quality but I could not figure out a way to make the muzzle cowl long thin exhaust ports. So today I was faced with the same problem ( Fortunately these are much bigger ) plus I have a wealth of experience to draw on so we shall see how I do. https://i.imgur.com/ekQR0U4.jpg I laid the groundwork for these ports and they take...

Blackadder Attempts to build an Imperial Warmonger Titan

Zitat von »MisterSinister« I guess it was the white light of the screen in the background, that messed up with the automatic white balance of your camera. Maybe you get better pictures by using the photoflash, if you want to compare your work with pictures on your screen. The gun works out impressively well so far, it's a real joy to watch your progress. I reached the pinnacle of my picture taking ability with a Brownie Hawkeye box camera circa 1950's. Today I use an ipad mini for all my photos...

Template Frames Removed: From the Muzzle Which opens up the four highly detailed cowl segments. https://i.imgur.com/zUwGAKO.jpg This is where the FW artists prove their mettle. The meticulous detail that no one ever sees in the overall scope but sets their creations apart from run-of-the-mill efforts. https://i.imgur.com/LpErLTP.jpg I really cannot wait until FW releases a Warlord Chaos version so I can adequately demonstrate my appreciation by purchasing one. BTW whatever turned the preceding i...

Rough Sanding Completed: The business end of this construct is reaching fruition https://i.imgur.com/yvyPN5f.jpg Space Marine Provided for scale https://i.imgur.com/9c3Mhe4.jpg A couple of more layers and I'll be ready to remove the templates. https://i.imgur.com/EZA696X.jpg But I don't like these new light bulbs. Why is everything yellow?

Blackadder Attempts to build an Imperial Warmonger Titan

That Wasn't So Hard: I don't know why I dreaded this, it wasn't so hard. I figured out the secret of layering strakes ( Contoured planks on a frame ) and where I have previously gone awry with this sort of construction. What you need to do is install backing strips to the inner surface of the main planks so you have something to glue the filler planks. Previously I attempted to add the filler planks without backing. I used 1,0 MM X 6.3 MM styrene for the planking which moulded easily but was sti...

A Horrible Bollixed Up Mess: Or, who knows, this just might work out after all. https://i.imgur.com/Pl4cvpI.jpg I've put a lot of work into this thing and it's finally time to apply the finishing strakes. Each one has to be custom fit but we'll follow this together. Right Now I am cautiously optimistic. ;-)

Blackadder Attempts to build an Imperial Warmonger Titan

Establishing the Profile: I remove the muzzle to work on it and reattach it for the images. My first consideration is the muzzle length which should be about half the length of the coil section. I can extend it about 8 more millimeters if needs be hence the excess on the nose of the muzzle. https://i.imgur.com/6hFW20K.jpg One problem with the shape of this is the templates I have installed to make the exterior form will have to be broken out after the outer cowl is completed so I can build the i...

Annihilator Muzzle: I bit the bullet today and expanded the muzzle channels to what I believe is the proper width and depth. Here seen in the original which is too cramped and closed in. Note I also have made allowances to extend the length of the muzzle. https://i.imgur.com/JMqUhMZ.jpg The muzzle ( temporarily ) installed now appears to have enough room for all the detail although I still have to jimmee the length a bit. https://i.imgur.com/HqQ93BH.jpg End on although crudely sanded at this poi...

Naked Frenzy: When I get in one of these "Everything's Coming Up Roses" moods I lose track of I'm supposed to be documenting the work process. https://i.imgur.com/yJ9c5ye.jpg The image above shows the naked channel with the beginnings of the detail and both of the channel filling detail basic runners completed. https://i.imgur.com/tIBCwd7.jpg And this next shot with the basic runner in place. Well it's not all that big of a deal but it does show how I plan to work around replicating the umpteen ...

Blackadder Attempts to build an Imperial Warmonger Titan

SunFury Channel Details: The Channels between the coils are first on the agenda today now that I need to replicate the detail. I reassembled the Imperator to check if the 'SunFury' (Doesn't that sound like an old Plymouth with a roof hatch?) Blaster is of the proper size befitting a weapon of this calibre compared to a Titan of this stature. and it seems like it's a Goldilocks fit. I'll have to whip up a temporary hanger to take a picture. Meanwhile there are some linear coils in the 12 and 6 o'...

Step 2 I'd like to take credit for foresight when I manufactured these coils but it was pure luck that I made them oversized. As it is I made the depth about a half inch too long but it did give me a smoother curve to the coil segments when glued and clamped where they would have been too hard to glue successfully had they been manufactured to a precise size. (I think that statement makes sense) https://i.imgur.com/NLriT3c.jpg In the image above we see the foreground segments cut down albeit cru...

Finished! Two weeks in the making but the coils are finally moulded. All the dire predictions were circumvented https://i.imgur.com/6F25N1C.jpg and judging by the on screen scale my estimate of 1/8 inch (3,2 MM ) coil rods was pretty accurate afterall. https://i.imgur.com/k03OmcZ.jpg The biggest problem is I overestimated the size of the gun. The onscreen gun is 18 inches (46 CM ) overall https://i.imgur.com/QF2zA9j.jpg Whereas my coils could work on a gun upward of 20 inches but I made the coil...

Win One For The Gripper Or Fail to do so; it's the moment of truth when we'll see if my makeshift bender will work or not. https://i.imgur.com/mpEkKz4.jpg After a hiatus of three days I finally had the time and nerve to see if all my work was for naught. https://i.imgur.com/GCK6X9J.jpg I put a lot at stake with this wooden jig which in spite of its crude appearance is actually pretty precise. All that needed to be done is boil up an quart of water and pour it over the clamped sheet of Styrene. h...

Bend Angle Radius: The relationship between the strength of a material and the amount of curve that can be imparted to the the material before the fatigue point where it will crack instead of take the curve. In aircraft it applies to aluminum alloys etc and the metal fatigues when too much stress crystallizes the area being bent to a point of material failure. https://i.imgur.com/qGaviga.jpg plastic is subject to similar restrictions. That is where we are now. How to impart a bend and not fatigu...

This Is Definitely the Better Way To Go: In the space of one hour I've exceeded the work of several days. https://i.imgur.com/EadMMJl.jpg Note: The rods are staggered only as a demonstration. When they are glued they will be flush with the edge. Of course I shall have to bend these to the shape of the coils.

A Failed Attempt: One of the duties of posting these updates is to show my failures as well as triumphs. I've wasted a few days on trying to make the coils on this Plasma Blaster and I am not enthused with the result so before I try a different approach I'll show what did not work out. https://i.imgur.com/kIFXXt3.jpg I came up with a new idea that I believe will produce a better result and in the long run be much quicker to produce. Once I have a good start on the procedure I'll post an update.

Subtlest Difference: You can see with this subtle improvement that the grip will be more humanoid and organic (gratuitous remarks at this point are inevitable I suppose) https://i.imgur.com/nBCMI0B.jpg

Hands, Touching Hands, Reaching Out, Touching Me, Touching You!
