[MOC] Executor-Class Super Star Destroyer
Posted 25 January 2012 - 03:14 PM
While Anio deserves much praise for his fantastic MOC, I would also hold him partially responsible for the rather disappointing official SSD. Realizing that they had virtually no chance of coming up with a better design, Lego was seduced by the Dark Side and came up with a design that had a flat bottom and a curious inclusion of the command bridge and minifigs.
P.S. I do understand the logic behind limiting some forum features to newbies, but is it really that necessary? In my limited experience, I have never come across a forum that would block the PM feature until you posted enough...

Considering the amount of spammers we've had lately, I would prefer it stay the way it is. 10 quality posts takes about ten minutes. I guess it'd be nice though if users could initiate PM's with new users.

Besides, 10221 is way too strong and stable, hence poor finitions. I mean that the designer could have made a less strong model (but still strong enough) to achieve much better shapes and details. :)

In other words, if you want to have the right thickness, you have to make the model much bigger (longer, wider, but same height, so the proportions are ok). But a bigger model is not viable, both for an official model and a well designed MOC.

Put another way, the width is there; the model only appears to be narrower due to the added height. (Actually, Anio's is a bit too thin if I remember correctly, but that's not why it doesn't resemble the source material as closely as it could).

Pardon me for being persistent, but let's say if I used a 10 or 12 x whatever length plate for the wings of Anio's design (instead of the 8 x L plate), would that put too much pressure on the superstructure so that it is unsustainable? No doubt Anio must have gone through various thoughts and iterations to come up with the final design, but doesn't the 10030 - with a very similar superstructure - have a wider wing span? Never having designed a Lego model myself, I am just struggling to understand (and want to know) why a compromise needs to be made between the width and thickness. I think 10221 has even less excuses to make on this particular issue because it is on a flat surface - which means it is more stable and has less pressure exerted on its overall structure (or at least in my mind).
On a separate note to Fallenangle... I am not yet qualified to view the comments that you have posted to my profile...

EDIT: Lasse's doesn't look too off:

Especially when you talk of 8, 10 and 12 lenght plate.
10030 is wider, higher. Well, the is much more room in it.
So, it is much easier to attach everything on the structure.

Is there any issues with fore/aft sagging?
Oh, I have one of the older original 10221's, which look to be in a different grey color than the new SSD. Will that color discrepancy be very obvious if I combine the two to make your SSD?

I think he means the old light grey 10030 and yes the two tones look odd together. It's a personal taste 'thing' of course but I feel the new grey or 'bley' blue tinge makes the old grey look rather yellowed and, well nasty!

Sorry yes, I did mean the old light grey 10030. Sorry, typo.. playing with versioning systems at work and the numbers are all getting to me.

It is a great pleasure for me to see that this model is appreciate and reproduced by the community.
And don't forget : I designed the model, but if you reproduced it, it is thanks to Frousmoul. ;)
Thanks for the pics. :)

edit : I can't.
Well, wait a few days to have the right post number, and then we will be able to discuss by PM... :)
edit : e-mail me with the adress at the bottom of that page ("Nous contacter") : http://www.setechnic.com/
Hi Anio - Newbie here. I tried to contact you via the link you provided, but the "Nous contacter" link on your website just takes me back to the top of the page. Is there any other way to get your email address so that I can send you the money for the SSD instructions?
Great job on this MOC and on your other amazing models. You and some of the other builders on this forum have inspired me to come out of my dark ages. My first (very small) project is to customize the recent (green) Jedi interceptor to the four other colors (yellow, dk red, blue, and black - Darth Vader's) and to build matching hyperspace rings for them to be displayed in.
