Imperial-I -class Star Destroyer
About this creation
I built this last December for my LDD remake of the 2012 Advent Calendar over on Eurobricks. But for a project that we're working on, EB member Bob de Quatre rendered it for me, so I figured I'd post it here. (Lots more models in the EB topic, by the way.)



I honestly didn't intend for this one to be so big. I started with the bridge, and then used that to determine the length of the hull, and before I knew it, I was building a 40-stud-long model. However, I really liked how the proportions turned out, and I decided not to fiddle too much with it. The toughest part was probably the base of the superstructure. There are so many half-plate offsets in there to get the right shapes of the layers, and then I also had to make sure the two halves were close to touching at the top of each layer. But it was definitely worth the effort; I think the layers turned out perfectly compared to the studio model I was looking at.



Speaking of reference material, I used these photos of the Devastator.



The one thing I couldn't do that I wish I could've is build the ship a proper Technic skeleton to support it. I started with Technic, but I couldn't get the beams to line up at the right angles in LDD. (I was going with the same basic design as the triangle of Technic inside TLG's Midi ISD, but with studless beams) I think that can be fixed in real life, though. I'm considering building this one for myself with physical bricks.

Looks sweet it would be awesome to have a fleet of mini star destroyers of all types maybe a victory class or SSD in the same scale. Possibly a LDD file?

Thanks. I've been trying to use MOCpages more now that I'm looking here more often for blog material.

This is amazing! I really like the combination of tiles and exposed studs. The shape, the detail, it's all very impressive.

I had an incredible deal on the midi model, [x3] and must say yours looks better!

As someone who built a 3 foot Star Destroyer from cardboard, I would simply like to state that the attention to detail on a model this size is superb. ^Blub^

Quoting Achintya Prasad Loving it! If possible, I would say that it even pushes LEGO's Midi scale ship out of the way! Great work! Only criticism is that I think that the bridge can be one or two plates taller. I encourage you to try this in real bricks; looking forward to it!
It's not supposed to be that far off the superstructure. TLG's midi model is just way too tall. See this reference shot of the studio model: http://www.starshipmodeler.com/starwars/jb_dest3.jpg
