EDIT: I've posted the pictures of the new version of the ship. Some subtle changes, but I think they make it a lot better. Commentary on changes is in purple

An A-wing plummets through space towards the stupidly exposed bridge of the Super Star Destroyer Executor. The bridge crew screams, the A-wing explodes, and nineteen kilometers of heavy steel, previously the second most technologically-advanced naval creation in the Galaxy, becomes nothing more than the Universe's largest dagger, stabbing downwards into the Death Star II with a force of quadrillions of Newtons. Explosions wrack its frame and the Death Star's as the Imperial fleet is thrown into disarray. The Rebels have won the day!

My scene is one of the climactic moments of Episode VI: ROTJ. The main change is the re-shaping of the aft part of the ship. In the movie it's pointy, and I changed the shape to reflect that. Also, there's no longer the menagerie of colors in the greeblage - just dark grey and dark bley:

There's a pretty impressive lean to the ship. Notice the flame coming out from the bridge - that's where the A-wing hit it!

It's got the red thrusters... The pointy back comes out over the end by four studs

And a Raging Inferno of Firey DEATH! I kept this picture the same, simply because raging infernos of firey death all pretty much look alike.

No overhang. Well, there still isn't any, but you can't see that from this picture. I really like this shot, though, in conveys the almost arrow-head like nature of the ship as it falls, and the perspective is really great.

The model stands about 11.5 in (29 cm) tall, and it was a blast to build. I wasn't going for complete movie accuracy, but rather the general feel of the scene, and I think it came out pretty well. (At least I haven't had anyone complaining about how it ought to have thirteen thrusters  :tongue:). Now that it's been updated and revised, what do you think?

Beautiful! I love all the details on the Executor and I love that scene! How did u get it to lean like that?

Yessir!
That's what I like :grin:
I think I'd better update that entry index.
We've got so many different types of entries now that it's hard to keep up with them.
Thanks Tereglith for making this great epic scene :thumbup:

The seound pic shows it's leaning on a trans clear beam piece.

Nice MOC, You definately captured the scene. There is still lots of room for improvement I feel, pitucularly the greblies - they grab my attention too much, prehaps if you toned them down a bit, It'd hit that original feeling of awe a bit more.

But none the less, Well done, It's a great Entry.

I see what you mean - their effect is softened when you see it in real life, but in the pictures the greebles to rather draw the eye. I'll try and make them more monochromatic when I'm revising the tail section.

Great job Tereglith! :thumbup: You managed to make a huge ship explode on a very small-scale diorama. Also gotta love all those 'black leather' in the background. :laugh: Though the scene is not as epic as other 'epic scenes' from SW, you still gave justice on that scene.

From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary: epic - adj -  extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope

This is a twelve-mile-long spaceship crashing into a battle station the size of a small moon; your argument is invalid.

Wow! Nice mods! Just thought I'd add, you're missing the thirteen thrusters :tongue: . I'd change the bridge fire to the wavy flame, but that's hard to add to anything :hmpf_bad: .
