    Facial Planes:

    We're going to experiment with this visor as I don't have an overhead projection so I made the angle gussets flexible until I see how the 'face shapes up.

    That way I can make the minimal adjustments required for an approximation of the artist's intent.

    Note the strips in the foreground. The one with the heavy pencil line glues to the inner surface of the visor. It is slightly scored so it acts as a hinged gusset. It can sustain a minimum of flexing before fatiguing the same as the visor plate. Once I am satisfied with the position of the visor planes I'll reinforce the the back side of the visor to hold the shape.

    Raising the Ears:

    When I was a kid going to the barber was called, "having your ears lowered." Well in this case the operative word is raised. and bring the ears forward and shorten the helmet.

    BTW after having been to the barber, you had "White walls."

    Anyway this side view projection shows I need to cut the helmet a minimum of 6 MM (one quarter inch) on each side and shorten the length almost half an inch (13,0 MM) which necessitates re-positioning the spear points.

    Or I may just go with three after the one in the forehead.

    The close up also doesn't do it for me; Fah!

    Family Portrait:

    Who's your Daddy? I accomplished a whirlwind revamp of the Command Deck aka the 'Head' shortening the rear overhang (Wait, he is talking about the head of this beastie not the loo???) but I did leave the cock's comb alone. (he is talking about the loo!)

    Seen here along side my Warlord to give a proper scale.

    And a closeup.

    Whoops:

    Seems I may have miscalculated on the size of the Titan. That face is huge compared to the Warlord. Of course I had planned upwards of 36 inches ( 0.9144 meters )but I had hoped to keep it under 33 inches (0.8382 meters ) just so it didn't relegate my Warlord to a minor player. This may not be the case now.

    The front view in my estimation is spot on and I shall proceed with the styrene version and make the cutouts on the basic structure. Once I am satisfied with the overall size relationship of the various parts of the 'face' I'll make the details.

    http://i.imgur.com/MBwgT4X.jpg


    The side view doesn't look quite right as there is too much forward projection with the cardboard template. When rendered in styrene wot the extra cheek plates added all will line up as it is supposed to......
    At least that is my expectation.

    Holy Monkey! That's HUGE! You might as well make it jaw dropping in size..... It's an Emperor after all.

    Chin Guard Detail:

    Back from Easter holiday; before I left I started the detail of the chin guard because I might have to put slots in the backing as well as the decorative spear shapes. The slots are ready made aligning points so duplicating the spear point is a cinch.


    http://i.imgur.com/i8pheXC.jpg


    I used a slightly modified tongue depresor to file the pieces to roughly the same shape and each pair is roughly 2 MM longer that the other S M L respectively

    http://i.imgur.com/1IMWqXh.jpg


    Now that the three pair are rough shaped I can clean up the edges and thin them all down to the finished width.

    This model head seems a lot easier than was the Warlord so far.

    OMG:

    Seriously this is probably the most gratifying construct I have done in quite some time.

    http://i.imgur.com/LpUWR8T.jpg


    Everything is falling into place.

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


    Even though the chin armour is too far forward (easily remedied) it gives a hint of the majesty to come.......

    http://i.imgur.com/oeVW0v7.jpg


    It's still not too late to start following/building along on this construction. I forsee this will be quite something when finished. :blush:

    Yeah, that's is looking 'the business'. I want a helmet like that. In fact........ I do need to come up with a Marine Helmet at 54mm. Stolen!

    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.
