Bandai "Vehicle Model" Star Destroyer; finished in Tamiya & Vallejo acrylics, 502 Abteilung oils, and MIG Productions enamels.
I primed the model black and then gave it a coat of Tamiya Flat White darkened with a little Light Grey. After that, I cut a bunch of tiny pieces of masking tape to a simple "Aztec pattern" on the hull. Then I lightened the original base color with more white and sprayed the ship. After I pulled the tape off, I felt that the panels were a little too dark so I dusted them with the base color to tone them down a bit. I put a coat of Future on the model and when it dried, I gave the recesses a wash using 502 Abteilung Oil Faded Grey and gave some of the darker areas a wash of toned down Mig Productions Dark Wash (enamel). Once everything was dried, I'll gave it a matte coat it and pick out some small details with a brush using Vallejo Game Color Ghost Grey. The decal was lifted from the AT-ST kit.

Looking good. But why does it has "digital camouflage"? Don't remember that in the movie.

It's not digital camo, it's called Aztecing and it's done on a flat surface to give the impression that it's made up panels. Whether it's on the studio model is irrelevant; I didn't build a studio model replica. Google "star destroyer model" or look at the handful of other threads on here and you'll see it's a common thing to do.

ScootyPuffJunior, got that. But I still think, that the squares are too bright....

Looks pretty damned good to me.....One colour in the Aztec-patterning is perhaps a little prominent, but it doesn't detract significantly from the overall finish IMHO. :coolio:

PS - Kudos from me for even attempting the Aztec-patterning.....The masking alone is enough to give me the heebies! :shutup:

Personally, considering the size of the model I think the larger aztecing suits the thing brilliantly.

I have found that when others have gone smaller that it actually does look like digital camouflage and breaks up the shape too much.

Very well done.
