Hello there,

So, after the Z56 Airspeeder was done I wanted to focus on something bigger. And what exactly matches ''big'' and ''Star Warsy''.... hmmm .... of course, a Star Destroyer (or anything similar)!

Seemed like a good idea, so I started gathering some of those triangel shaped bley grey plates and other bricks I would probably need for this build By the way; I wasn't focussing on designing a Star Destroyer or any other 'real' Star Wars ship, I just started building something custom, it's name and function ... oh well, that comes later.

However, after the upper hull was done and I gathered the grey plates for the lower hull, it discovered that only 3 or 4 triangel shaped (don't know what these pieces are called) were left... :hmpf:

So we had to improvise a little. What can we make out of a half Imperial P-102 class (that's what the ship is called, more information later)... a crash site seemed perfectly, so I wouldn't have to design a bottom. And so it was. I took some tan and dark tan pieces (it's crashed on Tatooine) and created a bunch of sand which was actually accumulated(?) because the nose of the ship actually penetrated the soft sand. And after some building that day, the MOC was done.

But some background information and a little story about the ship now:


MOCpages: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/273731


The Imperial P-102 class, designed short after the collapse of the Republic, was with it's 412 meters one of the smaller cruisers, compared to the Venator or Acclamator class. However, it's seize wasn't what made it so effective. Equipped with four main and two smaller jammers, this ship was capable of preventing enemy ships from using hyperspace or leave it. Besides that, it was armed with a tractor beam and was capable of shooting special laser cannons, only meant for weakening the enemy it's shields.

However, except from a couple of anti-fighter batteries in the flanks of the ship, the P-102 was barely armed. That's why it only could be used in company of a larger battlecruiser, like a Star Destroyer. A combination of the P-102 and a heavily armed cruiser was a formidable weapon. Short after the Republic ended and the Imperial fleet had to face CIS en Seperatist ships, pairs consisting a Star Destroyer and P-102 were widely spread through the galaxy by the empire, to hunt down enemy transport ships or small fleets.

Name: Imperial P-102 class
Length: 412m
Width: 176m
Height: 189m
Crew: +/- 270
Armature: six jammers, tractor beam, eight Czerka Corporation shield destroyers and twenty-two light anti-fighter cannons.
Cargo: 14.000 tons and 12600 persons.

Maybe this is too much information for such a regular MOC, but I still want to give you a little background story about the ''Avenger'', the relevant ship. The story begins when the ''Avenger'' and a star destroyer are approaching an enemy cargo fleet. They are in hyperspace now, and will reach their target in a couple of minutes. Admiral Sarlern is in charge of the Avenger.

Imperial officer: ''Sir, our intelligente reports tell us that fourteen Trade Federation ships have just left Tatooine. As far as we know they are not escorted by any armored ships.''
Sarlern: ''Good, good...exactly as we expected. Make sure our tractor beam is ready for use, we won't let any of them escape.''
Imperial officer: ''Yes, my lord''
Admiral Fyyar turns around and walks towards the hologram projector as cold sweat runs down his back. No wonder for a Admiral on his first mission, especially of the Sith Lord himself is watching. The projector starts, a blue light is coming out of it and only seconds later a hologram of Lord Sidious emerges. A cold voice begins to speak. ''Is the fleet in position, Admiral''?
Sarlern: ''Not yet my lord, we will rean our targets in only a minute. Our weapons systems are online and we scan the enemy fleet every second. We know exactly their position. I won't fail you, my lord.''
Sidious: ''I hope you won't fail me, Admiral. You know how much I trust in you. I don't want me to 'remove' you from your position.''
Sarlern: ''I understand my lord, if you would excuse me now, I believe we approach our target''
He turns around from the hologram table and hurries towards the bridge. A little because he has to lead the attack, and more because of his fear for Sidious.
The ship leaves hyperspace and the enemy cargo ships are spotted. But their own Star destroyers is nowhere. Sarlern is shocked, ''Where the hack are they?!'' he screams. Than a message coming from the Star Destroyer reaches them. ''Our ship...hyperspace...damaged.................xhjsdkj'' Was that all of it...?! ''Yes my lord'' is the answer as the officer looks the other way.

Sarlern don't know what to do first, but after he realizes the enemy fleet is not armed, he regains back his confidence. ''Make the tractor beam ready for firing.''. ''Yes, my lord.''

But suddenly, a red beam is coming from one of the enemy cargo ships and hits his ship as it stars shaking. ''What's happening in Vaders name?!'' is Sarlern screaming. ''We don't know sir, itr seems like the enemy cargo ships are armed!'' ''Make the ship ready for hyperspace, now!'' 'We can't sir, our hyperdrive booster is damaged, so are the engines!''. ''Well, do something!'' is that Admiral Sarlern calls when he takes a run for the escape pods.

But he is too late. When he is near the escape pods, a huge explosion makes the ship shake as it starts take a dive. From only 200 km/h minutes ago, an immense speed of over 1000 km/h is reached when the ship tilts forward and is heading towards Tatooine. In minutes, the ship is almost going to crash right into the planet. Admiral Sarlern is still laying on the ground, thinking he is going to die (he will actually, but not in this crash, but a couple of years later, when he suffocates in an M&m). But then the situation changes. One of the pilots managed to take control of the ship again and tries to fly up, away from the planet. Sarlern, running through the waste of ship parts falling of the roof, manages to reach the bridge again, and the last thing he feels is a huge blow, seconds before a wave of sand covers the windows of the ship.

End.

Well, compliments for anyone who read through all this. :laugh: And that for such a simple MOC.

A nicely done improvised star destroyer Hollander, the crash scene looks good but do you have a shot of the undamaged ship?

I like the additional grebaling done for a more detailed look in the midi scale ship. :thumbup:

The problem is, I didn't had enough parts for a finished bottom. Unfortunately.  :hmpf_bad:

Very nice MOC Hollander, a lovely midi scaled SD. I love the whole bridge area and the greabling. The crash is a very nice way to get around any lack of bricks.

Good work, Hollander. This is believable as a Dark Age Star Destroyer, and believability is what counts with fanon creations. My critique would be that as far as the timeline of Star Wars and its ships is concerned, I'd like to see a little more influence of the Venator-class. The portions of Imperial- and Victory-classes' dominate the design to me.

Overall, another quality MOC. Love the work with the crash site.

A nice creative solution to not having enough bricks to finish your ship :thumbup: . I like this Hollander. With limited pieces you've managed to capture the feel of the ship crashing; the buried nose as it has ploughed through the desert sand, huge pieces of metal wrenched away from the underside of the hull.

The only thing I am not too keen on is the use of the six dishes on top - I know they're some kind of greebling but they just seem too big and too numerous for my liking. IMO something to represent weaponry similar to the binoculars on TLGs midi Star Destroyer would work better. But that's a minor complaint and probably one that can be put down to personal preference.

Hello!

A very nice starship design with the typial wedge shape of the Empire. :classic: Just pity that it crashed. I hope enough crew members survived to repair the ship. :wink: I look forward to see the entire ship design soon. :classic:

Cheers,

Nice scene.  It really looks like its breaking apart, which I have found to be hard to make, and the ship looks very good aswell.

Great job :thumbup:

From the intro and description, it sounds like an ancestor to the later Interdictor cruisers used by the Empire:

Beautiful work on the design though! :)

I have to agree with both of you. I don't know if the next project will be a ''real'' SW ship or not, but it will be a cruiser, I'm sure about that. If it will become a ''real'' cruiser, It will be an Acclamator so there will be influence of the Republic colors and style in that case. If it's going to be a ''not-real'' ship, I won't use those dishes again, but cannons or something similar. This next MOC will be a little smaller than the current one due to the lack of bricks. But, more detailed.  :classic:

No offense, but can you not keep resurrecting old threads! This was over 4 years old!

Bumping in old topic, just to say it's "impressive" is NOT the way to go on a forum. Please don't do this anymore. Only bump when you have something to add to the conversation. Thanks!

While you are right, please use the report button instead of mini modding. That's what the button is for. Thanks.
