A major update, the hull got their base coat. So lot's of pictures for your enjoyment 🙂 Hope you like it!

I love it. The window sizes are perfect. Many other models have too big window lights... I also like the colour. What is the main color you used? Is the colour mixed or bought?

Many say the Star Destroyers are white. But it doesn´t look like it.

Beautiful job, Dubz!!

 

If I may say, though, I think she needs a good weathering to really make her pop ( or have I missed something, again?:lol:)

 

btw, how large is it??? It looks about 3ft from here???:D

 

Cheers, H

Thanks guys,

 

I used Tamiya XF-2 mixed with a bit of XF-19. The SD is 60cm long and far from being finished (panels, panellines, pin washing, decent weathering) 😉

Beautiful, Dirk, I'm sorry I didn't come here sooner. I love the extra detail work you've put in, not to mention the lighting.

 

But I got very excited when I saw the little 3D-printed Slave I. Brilliant addition!

Some more impressions. Will take better pictures soon. At the moment it's just my iPhone and with low light it's not the best.

looks amazing - I love an ISD and can really appreciate the work you have put into this model ( I built a whopper sized Randy Cooper Avenger a few years back and still have not recovered from the experience) - in case these help, here are some pictures of the filmset model that I took up in London a few years ago. This is the real deal from the ESB film

Thanks 🙂

 

First testshots with my Canon. I'm pretty satisfied with the lights, colors and the positions.

Great work again. 🙂

 

It seems that I confused somebody with my last comment. If it is the case because of the "white" colour...

In reports to Rogue One, the special effects guys talked about recreating the Destroyers of A New Hope, and called them "White Star Destroyers" and made them white. I also read on some other sources that the movie props are painted white and only got their final appearance through weathering.

But of course 1 drop of grey in 10 parts of white can make a big difference. So I am not so sure that the described white is really pure white...

I've just played catch-up with this, and it's an awesome undertaking - especially the lights :blink: I've got one to do, and with almost the same aftermarket list from what I can see.  Did you get any of the GreenStrawberry sets, or weren't they out back then? :)

Awsome work. So 0.3 mm fibers are the perfect size for this kit. Thanks for this - it will help me a lot with my kit - but of course it will be not even half as nice as what you have shown here (if I ever finish it....).
