Venator Mark III Star Destroyer . This is a theoretical version I created of the Venator Mark III Star Destroyer. There is a Mark II class on Wikipedia already, so I made this the Mark III version developed just before the Imperial Class Star Destroyer. . For those die hard Star Wars fans, this does not comply with the official lexicon. I was more interested in creating a hypothetic version of the Star Destroyer, which was created from my Star Destroyer and AT AT Walker sets. This version is 44 inches long, 28 inches wide and 17 inches tall. If the original Imperial Star Destroyer set was used as a comparative scale, the Venator Mark III Star Destroyer would be 1900 meters long, 1210 meters wide and 735 meters tall (with the landing gear extended). This makes it significantly larger than the standard Imperial Class Star Destroyer, and quite a bit bigger than the 1,137 meter long Venator Class Star Destroyer. I guess this would qualify as a super carrier. I borrowed some of the design elements from both the Venator and Imperial Class versions, and added some twists of my own. Some of these design decisions were made purely from the design aesthetic that I wanted, and others were dictated by some limitations of the parts I had. I would have loved to create more intricately detailed engines like Erik Varszegi's Venator Star Destroyer, but I didn't have the fully resources of Lego corporate at my disposal. I'm also trying to avoid the addiction of buying pieces on Bricklink. This took about 30 hours to conceptualize, design and build. I created more realistic landing gear than the original Imperial Star Destroyer Lego set had. The landing gear for the Venator Star Destroyers shown in Attack of the Clones were very spindly and not as logical as most of the ship design elements, IMHO. I hope people enjoy this rendition. It doesn't have some of the detail that Mark Kelso's Invisible Hand or Thomas Benedikt's whole series of Clone War ships, but it was enjoyable to build. Their models had to be accurate to a definable reference, so their efforts are significantly more impressive than mine. Here is a view of the port side. I obviously incorporated the side docking ports from the Venator Class, as well as the heavily raked tower bridge. On the bow end, I included doors that open to the docking bay that actually runs all the way back to the ventral docking bay on this model. The doors in this photo are closed, but are the two 4x4 plates along the central axis. At the aft end, I endeavored to add more interest and detail to the engines than that used in the Imperial Class. This is where I wish I had parts to make much more interesting engines, but they do the job I think. This is a close up of the bridge section. I started to introduce a single bridge, with some hints of the shape of the Imperial Class bridge. I also borrowed the concept that the actual command bridges are installed on forward projections on many of the ship designs used during the Clone Wars (Venator Class, Invisible Hand, Commerce Guild Destroyer, etc.) Here is a close up of the starboard side docking port. Finally, here is a view of the ventral docking port with a working crane. The upper portions of the forward landing gear are also visible.
