Great result and excellent job - love the weathering effect and it's actually a really nice looking ship to boot.  On the LDD front, each to their own, I love people sharing their LDDs so I'm able to make the ships I like, but equally I fully appreciate why people don't as others do take advantage, or those who share files/instructions for a fee.  

Regardless thanks again for sharing the WIP shots and the end result is well worth exhibiting.

That's one sleek looking star destroyer!

Thanks for sharing your WIP & completed photos! Would love to include this ship in my collection but I totally respect your decision for not sharing. :thumbup: But I can only hope otherwise, right? :laugh:

Very, very good work !

I did some ships like that in the past, and it has always been a pain to make the right structure with the right angles. By far the most difficult part of the design process.

When I read you WIP descriptions, it seems that getting the right angles was simple. It even looks like you were lucky sometimes.

Was it some kind of happy accident ?

Thanks! Figuring out what the angles ought to be was quite easy since I found a picture on the web with side, top and front views: http://orig02.deviantart.net/aea8/f/2015/162/b/2/harrower_class_dreadnought_ortho__new__by_unusualsuspex-d8vzzn7.jpg

But yeah, I was kinda lucky that the technic joint made exactly the same angle and that some brick slopes and wedge plates also matched. The most difficult part to create was the bottom (and the top) where the angled wings would meet. I struggled a lot with these sections and I think it took me 2 months to come up with the final version of this section. But overall, it was fun to build :classic:

That thing is like a tailored suit: neat, crisp lines everywhere :)

Looks fantastic and is a great scale.

Good work on finishing the model! It looks great, just as expected ;)

One question: why did you opt on attaching tiles to clips for the edges of the hull? I have seen this technique used before, but it doesn't seem to be a logical solution looking at the real models.

Thanks! I had two reasons for using clips on the edges:

1) The edges appear to be thinner this way. I guess using just bricks would look good on a larger scale... with this scale however it looks a bit bulky. Only on the inner sides of the wings I used bricks because I didn't have a choice really, but it still looks good because the greeble section is higher here.

2) The greeble section would be thinner which wouldn't look as good.

Oh my god, I just checked here, how is it going and it's finished! What a superb MOC, the SNOT technic is beautiful as well as the inner structure. Congratulations on this, thank you for showing it to us!

Awesome, I can't believe I've only just seen this!

I wouldn't know where to begin with a moc of this size built mainly from solid bricks and snot. Great job with the frame it looks extremely sturdy; angles look spot on. :thumbup:

Kind regards, Ellis.

Hi,

Would you sell the LDD or the model itself ?

That's a long time i looked at this one without finding anything approchaing the real look and feel of the ship.
