this is a destroyer droid that i made years ago. the photo was took from my old mobile phone camera. i made this because at the time i didn't have any destroyer droid models from any sets so i decided to make one.

The basic model is good but the colours don't look that good. Make it brown or grey and it would be perfect.

Thanks for Sharing :classic:

Welcome to EB! Like Burman said, it's a nice start, but it does look an awful lot like the old official one.

It's a good representation of a DD without using any specialised parts. Good if you need many of them!

Nicely done for a simple build, you got the basic shape right. With a few more mods you could further improve it. Thanks for sharing!

Not bad, I agree with what others have said, the correct colors would make it look more proper :wink:

Nice work so far. Like the others said you'll need a few mods and some color swapping to get it perfect. :thumbup:

But the basis model is nice but not perfect. I would recommend you to look at this version of a destroyer droid.

He's copying TLG's design. Everything else falls under 'mods'.

Besides, the one you posted is far from perfect. No reactor ball, no deflector shield projectors, no third head sensor.
