[MOC] 42028 C Model- Star Destroyer

Recommended Posts

Hi, all,

After lurking around the forum for a bit, I decided it was time to post my first MOC. This is a Star Destroyer, made from the parts in 42028 Bulldozer set.

Overview:

I started this MOC while experimenting with different frames and connections between parts. After some trial and error, I created a triangular frame with the sides bent in. Having just seen The Last Jedi, I was obsessed with all things Star Wars and decided to attempt an ambitious build for my low skill level- a Star Destroyer.

Given that I am not the kind of person who likes to mix their sets together, I eventually settled on the 42028 set to create this MOC from- not only because the low parts count would provide a challenge, but also it would be kind of fun to see a yellow... Banana Destroyer? :tongue:

The frame was primarily constructed of beams and perpendicular connectors:

(Note that this construction, while fitting together properly, created some stress on the parts- portions of the front push each other a bit owing to the tightness of the frame. But it's the best solution I could find given the space/ parts available. :hmpf_bad:)

After that was complete, I built the engines and the distinctive cabin and attached them:

Features:

  • Authentic body shape
  • Posable turbolasers
  • Built entirely from parts in 42028 Bulldozer set
  • Detailed engines and cabin

I hope you enjoyed my MOC! Thank you for stopping by, and I appreciate all feedback, comments, and suggestions!

I’m still amazed you saw the potential to build a star destroyer from a bulldozer! Very original and well executed! I also don’t like mixing my sets and am therefore a big fan of C-models.

Building small scale Star Destroyer from Technic is quite a challenge on its own. Making it a C-model is amazing!

An unusual but impressive C-model, and certainly not one might expect from that particular set! Even the placement of the stickered parts works well. Excellent job!
