This is something that I've been tinkering with over the last few weeks. I'm trying to stay fairly faithful to the original shooting miniature and to it's kitbashed details:


Not as daunting as it's TESB counterpart but it's certainly got it's challenges. I'll have more to show shortly - lot's to do!

    You'll want to put the X-shaped scanner thingy on top of the conning tower in a vertical orientation to match ANH. They used the model again in the sequels but they changed the orientation of that piece to match the new ESB model.

    Great start! I'm a sucker for an ISD model; definitely keeping an eye on this!

    Yeah, I keep going back and forth on that one - but you're right, if I want to be genuine to the model in it's original state, I should keep the array up. There are a few other pieces on the model as it exists today that have fallen off or were removed since it's original construction that I want to include as well. Luckily a bunch of the kit pieces appear several times, that should save me some work. :)

    Thanks all!

    Great start, I'm looking forward to more. :D

    Nice idea for a project. Fewer people tend to do the less detailed original ESD model, they usually go for the much more detailed version from Empire. However, the models from Star Wars are cool, even if they're not as detailed as they were in the 2nd film, where they actually had a budget. ;)

    Great start, and I agree, should make a nice change to see an ANH styled ISD as apposed to the more commonly modeled TESB version.

    Thanks all!

    Moving along ( I haven't adjusted the array on top of the bridge yet, still cranking though a bunch of the individual pieces).

    Beautiful details!

    Looking great so far. As much as I love other Sci-Fi ships, the ISD has to be one of the coolest ships in all of Sci-Fi. :D (I just don't have the nerve to try modeling one. ;))

    Thanks all!

    Detail work continues:

    Yeah, the tank treads on the back come from the 1/48 Bandai Panther G kit - this particular kit makes a bunch of donations to the ANH Star Destroyer. :)

    Very cool! :thumb:

    (And I see you haven't adjusted the position of the sensor array yet… :D )

    Looking great, Terry.:)

    Thanks!

    @DarkSapiens: thank you! Haha, no, the array remains down for now. :) I did fix some of the other array stuff though, including the ribbing on the the Akagi parts - the styrene chips are staggered now like they should be, as opposed to all being the same shape and size like they were before. Difficult to see here though.

    A little more work (I've roughed in the precious 8-Rad trench part as well as some of the turret pieces, amongst others):

    More to come!

    wow ... looking great!
  • DarkSapiensDarkSapiens173 Posts: 0Member
    Nice… It's gonna be VERY cool to see this finished. This one will have all those turrets that we see in the Incredible Cross-Sections book, right?
  • WizWiz28 Posts: 0Member
    You are a very brave man Stonky or crazy as a bag of frozen jelly, either way great work :)

    my clicking fingers get stiff and refuse to cooperate whenever i think about tackling something outrageously greebled like the Avenger... or Galactica... or the Esb Falcon... :lol:

    ive always loved the various SSD's, but the Devastator's radar domes always killed any realism in it for me as a kid. my grandmother had a china cabinet that used the same door handles... one look and all i could see was doors and drawers... heh

    could you imagine modeling all the greebles on the Avenger though??? sometimes i like to poke through this thread and pretend i could ever do them all:

    I don't want to hiJack this thred but I'm working on exact this Avenger. Made from 3D replicas of the existing Kitparts. Not much there so I havn't start a thread here. Will come when I have more to show.
