Hello gents. Project Jubilee was supposed to be my headline event at both the last IGT and the Autumn Conclave, but supply problems, engineering issues, having to redo huge chunks that didn't work out the first time around (or which simply weren't "right") and general procrastination put paid to that.
But having been started it over a year ago now, Iím reduced to looking at the various parts and lacking motivation.
I find sharing things does help my motivation, but Iíve been reluctant to do it for this because it was supposed to be something of a surprise (although not a very well kept one, as itís now common knowledge to our Dark Heresy group, and I know not all of them kept their trap shut) Ė however, itís probably going to take another year or more if I donít find some more motivation.
And hereís hoping you guys can get me motivated enough to continue and actually get it done in time for the coming IGT (now less than 10 weeks). So, Project Jubilee*:
Sorry, it's an old photo, but the lighting isnít good enough to get a decent picture of what few changes Iíve made since.
The three things to note are;
1) The upper legs do exist in a framework form, but they weren't practical to pose for this.
2) The reactors are place holders cut from scrap packaging polystyrene (fortunately I did do a test run, as it turns out my dimensions were too narrow). They need to be done again out of extruded polystyrene. If anyone has a decent recommendation for where to buy it without picking up a massive slab from the local builderís merchants, Iíd be glad, as the last time I bought it online was soooo long ago the webstore has gone out of business.
3) The shin plates won't sit that low on the final model, but their supports still needed building at that point.
*So called after the Jubilee locomotives of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway. This one will be borrowing its name from Leander
, the first locomotive I ever travelled behind.
Maybe not very Titan-ish, but when you build your own 54mm Warhound, you can call it what you want.
