Project to generate templates set for a cloned Reaver Pattern Titan in a cost effective manner easily reproduced by others.
As you are probably aware, Reaver patter Titans are quite expensive.Costs can easily reach $800 (USD). I would like to develop an easy to replicate Reaver Titan clone template set with instructions in a portable format. These templates and instructions would allow anyone with basic plasticard skills to build their own for MUCH LESS. The funds raised will be used to purchase plasticard and other materials needed to create the titan. As they are bound to be mistakes, I expect much waste material. The goal is to make the mistakes, and refine the design so the modeler does not incur any more expense than absolutely necessary. The shear size of these titans requires much material. Standing about 16" tall these are large pieces and will no doubt capture attention as they do battle on the game board.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The size of model means ruggedness, stability, and weight are all much more important than smaller scratchbuild projects. The piece requires stability and firm footing to prevent damage to itself and other pieces on game board. Naturally an internal support structure is required which will be string enough to support the piece without adding excessive weight.
The curved surfaces are going to be another challenge as plasticard is not normally curved as such. Several thinner sheets will no doubt be required.
The joints are another concern. Providing a secure MOVABLE joint will require some experimentation with various attachment mechanisms.
