Imperial Star Destroyer

The 1/2700 scale Revell/Zvezda Star Destroyer Model.

At almost 12 inches wide and 22 inches long, this is the largest and most detailed Star Destroyer model yet produced.

We have looked over ISD footage from the Star Wars films, plus a number of other modeler's offerings on this same model on YouTube and other locations, in order to plan our own approach to the build.

As always, our goal was to create a finished model we could be proud to display, but not take a year or more in it's construction.

The two biggest challenges in this model are exterior surface painting and detailing and the installation of the combination LED & fiber optic filament lighting system. Both of these processes required the greatest amount of time to plan and execute.

We employed a number of Green Strawberry detail products purchased from HDA
Star Destroyer Lighting Kit (LED & optical fiber)
Star Destroyer Photo-etch Detail set (main body details)
Star Destroyer Engine Detail Set (resin & PE parts)

We are now in the process of designing and building an approriate display stand for this impressive model. More to follow...
