If I'm going to be clubbed I'll need a thicker Helmet ;)

Then A Miracle Happened:

But no, it didn't.... I was working without checking on the so far completed 'Skull' (well that's what it looks like to me) and I got away from the proper relative sizes. and so far it looks okay. The cheek armour under the visor seems about right especially since the large round canisters under the eye sockets still need to be added.

http://i.imgur.com/kdIR6Gf.jpg


I still have to pare down the nose and chin dart embellishments and I'm having difficulty reconciling the extra wide vertical strip under the nose; it looks too wide to me on the skull but less so on the 2D image. I like it thinner as it give the lower face a more refined look.

http://i.imgur.com/vUrJCti.jpg


I'm going to have to bit the bullet and be less slavish to the prototype image and do what my instinct tells me looks best.....

So here is today's effort just tack glue in place temporarily.

http://i.imgur.com/yUS4JfD.jpg


and I'm already not liking the chin dart (What was I thinking???) but the roughed in nose seems pretty close to what I looking for.

In my opinion the chin part looks really good so far...
Except it is a bit skew...it turns a bit to the right...

But really, really awesome jod you did... :up:

Space Marine regalia:

Sorry, I got 'way too ahead of myself last night and in a fit of inspiration came up with the resolution to the nose and chin gewgaws but also the iron prow boot.

First the boot as I don't know what the interior looks like I got the inspiration to make it a solid floor and use the slots for small arms loopholes,

http://i.imgur.com/wDcB6Y2.jpg


just about enough room for a coupl'a sharpshooters shoulder to shoulder firing down at retreating infantry probably not in

http://i.imgur.com/5uE0rpp.jpg


The floor is 0.040 inch (1,0 MM) styrene which still needs to be trimmed to size but I still left one side not done so you can see the gusset strips needed to spread the floor. 70,0 MM (2.75 inches).

http://i.imgur.com/i71rWhT.jpg


Gluing the strip inside first and letting dry for an hour

http://i.imgur.com/7oBz3p8.jpg


And finally finishing up the nose vents and rebuilding the chin gewgaw.

Back On Track:

After quite a bit of editing I'm back on track With the nose and chin darts pretty much as I want them but of course they are still rough and need to be refined to a more elegant shape. I think it will be better to do these alterations whilst on the head a bit at a time so as not to compromise what is almost satisfactory.

http://i.imgur.com/Iy0I9z1.jpg


I took the image below so the substructure can be seen. I was in a quandary how to make the flare on either side of the chin until I added the floor which made the whole thing easy plus it gave stability to the chin guard and a reason for being; i.e. a small arms fighting platform. I just made more work for myself as now I need to access and egress this area.

http://i.imgur.com/0ic6dSf.jpg


The Space Marine is a bit large for this cramped area but a couple of cadians will fit nicely.

http://i.imgur.com/Pvw7iBM.jpg


This side view shows I still have a lot of shaping to the flare to do.

http://i.imgur.com/QWxXLmH.jpg


and front view likewise but there is a method to my madness because it is easier to sand and shape things smaller than it is to cut off and replace things with larger.

http://i.imgur.com/LgN0py8.jpg


So just a couple of more images tour de force while I install the other flare today.

Yeah So The Visor's Not Right; I Know: :D

It's like working a Rubik's Cube. You have to discard order to increase order. I have figured out the mechanism to pin the side panels back and still allow for the movement and easy disassembly otherwise I could jut glue and be done with it.


http://i.imgur.com/4iK9lJH.jpg


But what I am really showing is the first layer of the reinforcing gussets that I have to admit are somewhat crude.

The side view seems reminiscent of the Batman comic Joker Which may or may not be a good thing

http://i.imgur.com/F2GJRLu.jpg


The rear quarter view show there is still a tremendous amount of detailing to be done. But fun none the less.


http://i.imgur.com/acYFw8C.jpg


And of course the hidden areas that no one will ever see once all the magnets and clips are installed to keep the head together.

http://i.imgur.com/bQhzqH3.jpg


Finally my unpatented slide mechanism for easy removal of the visor.

http://i.imgur.com/ZkOCMk4.jpg


Gawd, I still have to add lighting to this as well!

Artistic Interpretation:

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

My Invictus skull differs from the image in many respects. Some as corrected projection errors such as the wrap around eyes, some as untranslatable 2D to 3D projection discrepancies and some as, "I just think it looks better that way." larger darts on the helmet, shorter and wider chin. Yadda yadda.........

and some with flat out mistakes on my part in building without measuring.

http://i.imgur.com/3vx0u6U.jpg


The flat iron flare of the chin in my model is almost twice the size of the image but I like the side view on the image but not the front view so I made the front view conform to the side and, walla, extra wide flange.

http://i.imgur.com/A4o2hPa.jpg


The side view is pathetic but it'll due for the nonce. I just tack glued everything together so the helmet tips back and the chin doesn't jut as it should and the visor is too vertical but you can get the idea.

You can see by the images below that as of this time I intend to have the Chin, Visor and Helmet as one piece. This may change after I make the interior cockpit area but I am having difficulty mating the visor to the chin/cheek plates.

Eyes Have it:

Preparing to add the wiring and LEDs some time this weekend so first I needed to know where the eye socket lenses would go and how they would fit. Getting the angles of the base of each lens frame was quite a chore as my sockets aren't 100% mirror images of each other depthwise. Fortunately they are within a quarter of a millimeter the same in socket size about 0.010th of an inch; yeah, I know, I was flabbergasted as well when I actually measured them.

Anywho I be gluing on the rivets this evening which should consume a good portion of my relaxation time

http://i.imgur.com/XuegBdj.jpg


Meanwhile here's an image I found that shows the relative sizes of my Warlord to this new construction although I think the white shirted figure at the foot of the Warlord is too small.

Subject To Change:

I changed my mind about what to work on last night. I had it in mind to detail the rivets but an idea occurred to me as to how to fasten the visor to the helmet so I went with that.

I used a slip joint slide to fasten the horizontal stabilizer to the vertical stabilizer on my Thunderhawk so I know it will work and as long as it isn't treated too rough.

We see below the result of an hour or so fiddling and waiting for the various glued parts to dry; a slide rail on the helmet and a slot to receive the rail on the visor. The tolerance is snug enough to hold the visor in place but sufficiently loose to allow ease of removal.

http://i.imgur.com/2XqfFTa.jpg


I really should learn to take videos for these demos but slipped half on.

http://i.imgur.com/rZNkq28.jpg


and slid home.

http://i.imgur.com/qfw8zUE.jpg


The beauty of this arrangement is it allows me to complete the visor lighting at a later date after I finish the interior cockpit assembly.

And a few images of the visor in place and at the proper angle now:

The Neck Passage:

Before I leave for Las Vegas a little something that came to me this past evening. Since I am making a full cockpit interior I'll need a sufficient mount so why not use the mount to simulate a passage thru the neck.

http://i.imgur.com/ppUlwfK.jpg


And to reinforce the floor and give me something to attach the cockpit why not a few Lightening holes.

Thanks for the reply; I am back from a tedious 2600 mile odyssey traveling the breadth of the United States in three days in a 16 foot truck trailering a car which was no picnic. It took me a day to recuperate and a day to unload the truck and a couple of days to get my groove back. Yesterday I began again to make pieces for the interior and I hope to have a post update ready tomorrow. Meanwhile thanks for all the posts and the support. I'll try not to let you all down. Worthy of note; I spent three days in Las Vegas and didn't spend so much as a nickel gambling. Somewhat of a record to my mind but I did see the Arizona Meteor Crater which was a life long ambition.

Slowing Down:

Am I slowing down in my dotage?

A week ago I was somewhere in Texas, Windmills to the right of me, windmills to the left of me from horizon to horizon.

The tallest wind turbines in the U.S. have been installed in Texas — the Vestas V90 turbines are 345 feet high, and are rated at 3 megawatts each. They are part of the 63 megawatt Snyder Wind Project, a wind farm that’s just been installed in western Texas.

Today I finally put the floor in my Emperor Titan head. a weeks worth of work and damned little to actually show

http://i.imgur.com/XQ8Z1Xs.jpg


I vacillated from not enough room to too much room......

http://i.imgur.com/RZR7ltm.jpg


but now that the actual floor is installed it all is coming together correctly

http://i.imgur.com/NdhT0av.jpg


Sorry for what seems redundant images but the previous ones were without the floor and not able to be handled. Now at least they are held together with gum bands and aside from being somewhat askew are just about right for installing the interior furniture.

http://i.imgur.com/Kj1OPHR.jpg


With plenty of room to spare.

Tonight's repast; Martini, Texas Chili and the Doctor Strange BlueRay Video....

Skoal.

Don't Be So Proud Of This Engineering Marvel You've Created

It pales to insignificance compared to the force.

So it's been quite a while since I posted; I've been really busy with community activism. But I did manage to work a bit on the interior. So the best thing to do is to show how it breaks down......

The Complete er-ah- Head as it is today.

http://i.imgur.com/dqnVeMq.jpg


Slide the visor up to disengage the faceplate.

http://i.imgur.com/9kWLLGr.jpg


The Faceplate engages the neck corridor floor with a tongue in groove joint.

http://i.imgur.com/nds5dpa.jpg


Revealing where the interior cockpit will eventually be assembled.

The Chin fighting platform floor is held in place by a single screw , the only hardware needed so far in this assembly.

http://i.imgur.com/HwqgtR6.jpg


and tongue in groove edges

http://i.imgur.com/ypsAwnu.jpg


To round out the effort the visor slips off to reveal the cockpit interior when the model is completed.

Long Island Ice Tea Time. Skoal!

BTW I'm open to any questions regarding the construction if the pictures have you puzzled but only on the thread; not a PM please.

Thanks for the reply,

Worked and Worked:

But so little actually visibly accomplished. I began this project telling myself I would not make the same mistakes I made with my Warlord but Damn! it's coming out so good that I keep retrofitting more and more interior so I'm back to building inside out again. I had hoped to start on the chest and shoulders by now.

http://i.imgur.com/f8Kz6J5.jpg


So here's the Landspeeder cockpit that will eventually fit into the head which has a floor ready to receive the cockpit but is just a slab of angled 0.040 sheet styrene so really nothing to see yet. But trust me it is inside.

http://i.imgur.com/jAQSZjW.jpg


A little more visible are the cheek canisters whatever purpose they serve other than clutter the face up and therefore add esoteric detail.

http://i.imgur.com/rsv6BnD.jpg


I notched out the canisters to mount on the secondary cheek armour which is where I am now in the construction so before I glue the on why not take some teaser images to tantalize my loyal readers.

Hopefully I'll have more progress to show next time.

BTW, just noticed the floor of the cockpit is visible in the image directly above but as I said it's just a sheet of thin styrene so whoopdeedoo!

Pure Gold:

Gold is where you find it as the old saw goes and you find it in the least likely places. I was in a variety store a few days ago and found these Hair bands 4.76 MM (3/16 inch) diameter that are ideal for the canister conduit.

http://i.imgur.com/WrBYXrW.jpg


I felt the image conduit aesthetically too large of a diameter.

http://i.imgur.com/UYsIE1r.jpg


I have used these before on my Warlord and my Warhounds but those were only 3,0 MM (1/8 inch).

http://i.imgur.com/rGefJtx.jpg


If I could find 6.3 MM (1/4 inch) that would be also of use. I'll keep on looking.

http://i.imgur.com/h4c8TLk.jpg


Whilst we have the head apart again I can show the cockpit which is coming along quite well.

http://i.imgur.com/G760IsE.jpg


Working on the interior is much easier if you can remove it and reinstall at will so I work with a detachable floor.

It also makes it easier to paint if I ever get that far.

The Fearful Symmetry:

As most of you know I rarely measure when producing my work. Therefore symmetry is a problem for me as revealed in the image below. The face shield is canted a degree or 2 counterclockwise which is readily apparent in this head on image.

http://i.imgur.com/il8GXeZ.jpg


Of course no one will be standing full dead on eye level with the construct so I may let this discrepancy slide.

The Low angle view seems to hide the flaw.

http://i.imgur.com/befX1AH.jpg


Now for the crux of this discourse; the conduit run to the ear pieces.

http://i.imgur.com/W69lm36.jpg


Magnets hold the ear disc on with a fender washer to take up the gap.

http://i.imgur.com/hKHuYWM.jpg


And a 5 inch scale for reference to the size of this, seeming, never ending construct..

I think you can help ist a little bit. As asymmetric often adds a lot of interest in objects. If you look onto the skull in front view I would try to add some detail (greeblies, uberdetail) on the upper left of the skull, and some on the down right. So you fill the opticel "holes".
On the skull there can be a lot of additional antennas, floating servoskulls, guns, skulls etc.

Thanks for the reply and asymmetry is fine with me but the visor is off as stated about 2° counter clockwise and it would be not too difficult to correct right now but after the interior is completed it may not be possible without a lot of backtracking. That is the dilemma I am facing.
