Finally my Revenant Titan arrived! Breaking it out of the bags, I soaked it in dishwashing liquid and warm water, took an old toothbrush and cleaned the parts.
|I felt like an archaeologist putting this together|
There were a lot of flashing so I took to it with vigour and in some parts may have damaged it a little so am going to have to grab a bottle of liquid greenstuff.
|Slight over zealous shaving|
|Test fitted some of the larger components like the guns|
As I was building the model, I noticed that the legs just did not stay in place for long. A slight nudge and it all came apart. Whipped out my drill bit, a thick paper clip and voila.
|Added a pin to the lower part of the limb|
|Painted the tip and dot the internal joint, ensuring a good fit|
|Jammed the pin in and it's done. Both sides ran flush to the knee cap|
|Trimmed off and flattened the joint|
|Added magnets into the sockets|
|Jammed the largest magnet I had into greenstuff|
|Smoothed the joints but not too concerned since it's all hidden in the gun.|
|Used greenstuff to help bond the legs to the lower chassis|
The hardest part for me was the posing of this model mainly due to the heavy resin. It was also hard because each part affects the pose. For example, the torso and feet are going to be heavily influenced by the actual position of the legs. However, the legs are also heavily influenced by the torso and feet. So which comes first? Bluetack came to the rescue and I finally decided with the pose above.
|Anyone have any clue what these parts are for?|
Targetting to get the base coats done with pre-shading.
I also found this resource to be extremely helpful. He has a very complete almost step by step guide to the project: http://oinksterrain.blogspot.co.uk/p/details.html
