Here ya go LegoLord, details galore...Shannonia here I come!
About this creation
This is a diorama type thing that I have been adding on to slowly for the past two months after making my Super Star Destroyer. This is the finished product for all the people who wrote a review telling me to put more detail into it. Thanks for the tips! The Super Star Destroyer is one of the largest, most powerful Imperial vessels ever created. It follows the same basic dagger-shaped design of the Imperial-class Star Destroyers, but magnified to much larger scale. A smooth hull presents an arrowhead shaped profile when viewed from above. Resting in the center of this hull is an "island" of habitable volume.
Though there are several command ships, the most distinguished of these Star Destroyers is Lord Vader's flagship, the Executor. This vessel led the Imperial Death Squadron after the Battle of Yavin. It also served as the command ship at the Battle of Endor.
The Executor was the first of a new generation of immense warships, lending its name to the Executor-class Star Dreadnought. Its difficult-to-comprehend size and destructive power led many to borrow superlatives popularized during the Clone Wars, and simply call it a Super-class Star Destroyer, though this was by no means an official label. Constructed in secret at the starship yards of Fondor, the Executor was a crowning achievement for both the Imperial Navy and Kuat Drive Yards. During the construction phase of its existence, the whole operation was under the command of Admiral Griff.
Please keep in mind that this a Super Star Destroyer, which does not have a large command bridge. (Thus the tiny one.) If you look through all the pictures, you can see what it looks like in Star Wars.
The city next to this massive flying nation can be any Star Wars city of your choosing. I just thought it would be cool to make a micro city.
Please note that this is the actual size of a city to this ship. Well, on second thought the city would probably be a lot smaller but I wanted to make it kinda "big". =)
Detail, detail, detail!
You can see the command bridge in the back of the dark grey section.
I am leaning very heavily on entering this is the Lego section of the Evergreen State Fair. Two years ago I got second place in my age group and won like three dollars. This year I'm hoping to do better. Because of that, I need tons of ideas and tips. Bring on the criticism!
The surface of the Executor was dotted with all sorts of weaponry, bristling with more than 5,000 turbolasers and ion cannons. The Executor carried wings of starfighters and two pre-assembled garrison bases ready for deployment.
This is what it looks like in "real life".
The main attraction!
The main attraction yet again!
The very front. Man, I feel sorry for the Stormtrooper that has to sleep by the window in the front.
From the top...
The city braces itself for the first Super Star Destroyer landing since The Emperor came down with a bad case of the flu. =)
The engines are actually red, but I forgot until after I took the pictures...RATS!
And last but not least, more detail!
(All due credit to Star Wars.com for the info and picture needed for this MOC.)
EDIT: Please take a look at the finished version HERE.
This is very good but you left out some amazing stuff. there are 2 bridges, you should be able to see some of the turbolasers, thats about it. thanks for saying that the city wasnt to scale because i would have said something about that. remember you asked for the problums and its realy good its just that im the biggest star wars geek in the world.
I have a hard time imagining a starship 17km in length coming in for a landing, but why not? Independence Day had starships 15 miles across hovering over New York, and in one of the expanded universe star wars novels the Lusankya was parked underneath miles of Coruscant cityscape. It's crazy I tell ya, crazy! I like your tiny city, and the hull of the destroyer is real sleek.
I could've sworn I saw a trash can as a building til I saw the detailedish picture. Great job though; change the engines to red and enter this whole "diorama" at the fair, and watch out for n00bs. I will take a breath now.
Hey, if you haven't shredded it already (I think you already have) you could make a nice Lusankya MOC with a bigger city and the SSD... but well, nice MOC!

This is amazing, just the look of it with the small city section in the background is just fabulous. I have another castle you may not have seen yet. Westford Castle... I know you like then since you have rated most of mine =)
But this quite a "beautiful" MOC

try making the bridge a little shorter, 2 1x3 plates on top of each other with 1x1 round buttons as sheild generators, and it will look right. to shannon young: as far as "landing" this ship if you look up the lusankya you will find that not only did an executor class star destroyer land on coruscant it was also built over and eventually launched demolising the city landscape that was over it. this was from the x-wing series of books.
you didn't make me "Luse" a $50,000 bet! Ps: you should put me as a favorite builder as the one guy who abuses your "Luse" jokes too much, and as the master of micro gundams/ micro mecha. Pss: i knew blade would "Luse" to you! Psss: i guess you weren't the "Luser" on this challenge! Pssss: you're just too good to "Luse!" Psssss: this joke is starting to "Luse" its humor.
this is very good, the micro sity looks good but the superstardestroyer is insane, good job (I wonder how big it would be if someone made it on minifig. scale..lol, it wouldn't even fit in my room probably)
Almost forgot, why don't you want to be the stormtrooper by the window in the front ? looks like a great view on everything that lies ahead to me, or maybe the things that lie ahead aren't very positive..
Anyway, Good job
Should I? Do I have the nerve to write a "comment" on my own creation? Oh...I just did. Well, thanks for all the reviews! I am listening to every single one of your tips. Oops, it wouldn't post my comment...I have to vote on it? Okay...
Impressive ! What I love in particular in this MOC (apart that's wonderful !) , is that (I think) you build it with, in mind, the pictures you want to take (hope you see what I mean my english is bad). For me it's a very important point when you make a MOC. Here the pictures looks very good, with the right angle. Nice, nice, nice !!!
Now, that's just cool on so many levels. I gotta agree with Young, the city scape really makes it. Yeah, so a super Star Destroyer would never actually land... big deal. (If you're gonna display it, I'd go with Shannon's advise) Nice one. ~ Chris.
No way that he could make a mini a-wing axxen, the moc is too small [executor is miles long]...anyways jd, great scape [not enough to make shannon eat his heart out, but still good] and the executor's fairly good [not enough to make Lasse Deluran eat her heart out, lol]. Overall, very nice job. 5/5
With some more additions and a little polishing, you have an outstanding futuristic microcity. You've got several cool building designs there. I'd like to see that expanded on and featured as a MOC in and of itself (surprise). As for the ship, if you're looking to display it for judging, here's my thoughts: A ship that size would never land, so I'd lose the landing pad and just make a stand to display it on. If you can pull off some micro TIE fighters or whatever other little ships would be flying around it (or even another big ship if you've got the pieces), display them with it instead of the city. There's a lot of goodness here, and a few well-placed little extras would really make it pop.
Nice work it looks great this is a good representation of the moovie piece. the engines are further forward underneath the tail piece and there are 13 of them. and yes the enines are an orngy read so u might wanna revise before you get alot of angry 501st members on your hands. the body thought is excellent!!!
