I’ve finally decided to have a crack at building a titan.
There are some wonderful scratchbuilds out there that have some astonishing detail and embellishments and I will definitely be “drawing inspiration” from them. What is going to make mine a little different is that I want it to be fully posable.
The idea is going to be too have a skeleton made from MDF which will give it internal strength and also let me choose any dynamic pose I want. I don’t think it will stay posable once I have built it… I will glue the joints in place for strength after I have settled on a scenic base.
All the detail and armour will be card and will be added at the end.
To start off, a foot.
MDF with plastic pins allowing it to be moved around.
Adding hydraulics to the phalanges: these are telescoping rods that I use for all the LaserCutCard stuff… from Evergreen Scale Models. The attachments on to the phalanges are card. This is going to ultimately be a chaos walking robot and so I have added some appropriate detailing. The attachment was done with a dressmaker’s pin.
I can’t move forward with this project until 15 Jan as the guys who do my laser cutting are closing for the holidays but I will spend the time making changes to this model for the other leg
