Hello @ all,

Until my super star destroyer of the Executor-class arrived from customs I will start the "smaller" version of the Imperior I-class ship first.

This is the brand new kit from Zvezda (reboxed from Revell). Additionally I will use some resin parts for the engines etc., plus some LEDs and fibreoptics for complete illumination.

But first thing I did was assembling the two upper and two lower parts of the hull, adding some wall parts. Some further wall parts between the upper and lower hull will follow and glued to the lower hull.

The "roof"-parts will follow later once the electric is finished. First I will ahve to drill many, many, small and smaller holes for the fibre optics ....













Cheers
Micha

Hello,

I have added some further parts to the star destroyer. Mainly the side panels between upper and lower hull as well as further details on the super structure.

The rear part of the main ship is glued to the lower hull and the engines from Falcon3D added. These are very good quality, although the big engines were deformed a little bit (egg-like).
A bath in hot water brought these back in the correct round shape now.

Now it is time for drilling holes, holes and more holes for the lights ...















Cheers
Micha

Looking good, are you going to upgrade the shield generators too?

After watching the goodness that was your Millennium Falcon build, Micha, I'm definitely "on board" for this one!

Looks great so far. Don't envy all those holes you're going to be drilling though

Impressive build, Micha.

Since this is less than 25% finished you can join our group build campaign on Sci-Fi III. We are starting in two weeks.
