Bandai's newly released Super Star Destroyer in the slightly ridiculous scale of 1/100,000. Despite the tiny scale, the model is quite large for a release in the Vehicle Model range, measuring about 19cm long, althought the slender design makes it still feel quite small. The level of detail is almost as crazy as the scale - it's hard to believe injection moulding can achieve results like this.

Painting was kept on the subtle side to avoid creating an out of scale appearence on something that's meant to be 19 km long. The build can be found here.

Beautiful work as always Andy. :thumbsup: ... Would be nice to see a standard Star destroyer in the same scale for comparison.

Excellent work indeed! I'm waiting for the 1/72nd scale version. By my calculations that should come out to about 866 feet long. Hmmm, I better start stocking up on paint.

At this scale a regular SD would be about 1.6cm long. I'm sure someone will make a 3D print available on shapeways, if there isn't one already.

In fact there's even a version that can be lit up:

Hi Andy.

 

Great job !!
And inspiring. He has turned on a light in my head to work the painting of my Star Destroyer.

Really pretty Andy, it looks amazing from that rear low-angle. So much detail!

In awed by the scale and the intricacies of the details. Well done, yet again, you've pulled it off.

Cheers Will. I think the underside is probably more detailed than the top. Shame you don't really see it much when it's on display.

Just re-create this shot in your display on a turntable, and you're good:

Truely an inspiration, like any other kit you make!

Superb work. I thought it was reported to be smaller at  around 10cm.

 

Built the Star Destroyer and the amount of detail Bandai cram in is amazing!

An excellent idea - I may have to get another, and try recreating that scene.

The regular Star Destroyer box scale kit is around 11cm, but at a different scale - 1/14,500

Thanks. Pity Baindai or anyone really do not do a big version. There is a two foot version to go with the Armada Star Wars Board Game. Very expensive though.

 

And about time someone released a TIE Bomber. Must be the only Star Wars vehicle never kitted!
