Very nice! I was worried it was going to be a cartoon-ified version from Rebels, this is so much better :)

I find it oddly interesting (or something) that they're making kits of props that were made from pieces of kits. I wonder if the original maker of the kit parts used has a claim for copyright issues?

Its not that unusual, the Thunderbird Mole kit from Aoshima I built contains an entire Airfix/Dapol girder bridge

The funniest is that the Nebulon B Medical Frigate uses a kit part from the MPC X-Wing (The 'tech strip' behind R2), which is a replica of the studio scale detail which was built other model kit parts.

I'm not a sci-fi fan but, at 60cm, that really does look interesting

This might even persuade me to do a Star Wars model :D

agreed! I may break my own imposed SW embargo and buy one because it looks that good

At 60cm, it'd be roughly about the same size as the Anigrand one wouldn't it?

 

I'm sure the full on SW fans/nerds/know-it-all's will be either finding some tissues right now or nit-picking holes in it before it's even launched. You know who you are....

 

I wonder how Zvezda got a license to do this kit? I thought only Bandai were allowed to officially make SW kits now - or is that old news and I have no idea?

Anyway, it is awesome to see what looks like a great kit of a SD to be released. Thanks any deity you like its not another X-Wing or TIE fighter. Hopefully, we may see some other capital ships come out of the Zvezda workshops? MC80 or a SSD maybe?

Hello

 

SW is now Disney.

Zvezda already had Disney licenses (Plane, Cars cartoons)

 

Anyway, I think I 'll get this one!

This topic is also listed in the Rumormonger section.

 

There is a store in Germany which lists a SD from Revell as a gift set for 04/17 at 99 Euros... I do not think it is the same kit which is already announced by Revell at that price, so I suppose it will be a rebox of the Zvezda kit.

 

Link is here: https://www.zinnfigur.com/Modellbau/Neuheiten/Geschenkset-Imperial-Star-Destroyer.html

 

I will not buy multiples but one for sure (either from Zvezda or Revell).

I apologize again Yandex translator ....
license from the Disney company "Zvezda" and on this model on individual circumstances.
if you think that the representative of the company - 3d model for production was approved by George Lucas personally.
I don't know why they can't agree with the "Bandai".
again - the words of the representative of the company, if the "Destroyer" will be a success, it is possible to work on other models SW.
in Russia the majority of modelers more interesting topic of domestic equipment - planes, tanks, cars, ships, etc.
the theme of science fiction interesting units, Yes, it probably does all over the world.
therefore, we must have sworn - it would be better Il-76 in 1/72 made (good plane, I do not argue - and no, it doesn't make Amodel - so-so quality).
but still - many of them are happy about this news.
about Revell SD, most likely, it will be their toy, but I could be wrong. and when they're going to do "Milenium Falcon" and X-Wing from FInemodels forms already bought ....
