Executor, Vader's Star Destroyer by Pellaeon
My take on Vader's flagship from The Empire Strikes Back: the Super Star Destroyer Executor. Nineteen kilometers from stem to stern, Executor is over 11 times the length of a typical Imperial Star Destroyer.
It's time for Eurobricks' third Executor MOC in as many weeks! Others have gone big or gone accurate, but I've opted to go midi! TLG's 10221 is lovely, but at $400 and 4 feet in length, it's a bit impractical... this 22-inch version has taken me weeks and countless revisions, I'm pretty happy with the result. All photos are links to larger images on flickr.
I need to take more and better pictures when I get a chance... I forgot to take any pictures of the bottom of the ship. Anyway, I hope y'all enjoy these photos!
Serious question for the micro-scale MOCers: So here's a problem: my 2-inch "to scale" Imperial Star Destroyer is actually waaaaay bulkier than it should be because of its snub nose--it would be almost 3 inches long if the bow continued to a sharp point. I made a smaller Star Destroyer using two 2x4 wedge plates, but I'm not happy with it... What are the alternatives? Is there a way to build a 2-inch Star Destroyer with something other than those blunt-nosed wedge plates?
UPDATE 13 JULY: Here are some more photos, now featuring the smaller Star Destroyer discussed on the second page of this topic. Photos are links to flickr, as always. Enjoy!
