Project Log: Scratchbuilt Titan 2

Enginseer Ian reporting in again from Forge World Baltimore, sporting fresh pictures from the manufacture of my custom plasticard titan. I can proudly say that the body itself is coming along well. I have fully assembled the cockpit and gotten most of the main body done. I just need to build one of the shoulders, a leg, and the arms and I've got the functional body of the beast done.

For those who don't know, the symbol on the leg is the icon of the Keywork from the Coheed and Cambria universe. I have decided to do an IV icon on the other leg, which is also from Coheed and Cambria, it was the icon of their 2nd album, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3.

Slowly but surely its coming along. I need PVC before I can be done though.

The grill is etched brass from the GW basing kit.

That does it for this update!

Glad to be making progress, and hopefully by the coming weekend I'll be able to pick up some of the parts I need to take this baby over the finish line. I am going to add a ton of bits for detail, as well as using plasticard to make the panels that cover most of GW's tanks and make the flat spaces look less plain. I am out of the plasticard rod I used to make the pistons, so I need to go to the store before the individual pieces are done. I suppose I also need the same kit for the small rod I use for the rivets. I should have enough of the thicker plasticard to make an engine for the rear though.
