[MOC] Midi-Scale Mark II Imperial Star Destroyer

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is my new Midi Scale Star Destroyer MOC.

Lego MOC - Midi Scale Mark II Star Destroyer

Its made of approx 1,600 pieces and is 45cm (56 studs long). I basically built it by buying up a whole load of parts and starting to build with just a ton of Star Destroyer pictures to use as reference (Lego, CG and movie shots) Took me about 2.5 months to design and build it and it threw up a lot of challenges on the way that I was determined to try and find a way to solve. It seemed that every time I figured out a solution to one issue, it created a problem elsewhere on the build. Got pretty frustrating at times when I couldn't get those hull plates to angle properly but I figured it out in the end which has turned out to be extremely satisfying. I'd say I got a bigger buzz from building this than from any official Lego build I've ever done. For those interested the full album is here (it also has a fully modelled underside with both hangars in):

Really really nice. Love that you have the hangers in there. Will you be offering the instructions? 

Two answers to this really, 1. Unfortnately no, if I could I would,... in that, if I had the ability to build it worthy of instructions I would have as I’d love to be able to make something others could make too but... 2. To be honest you wouldn’t enjoy the particular way I built this as it’s very much a display model and doesn’t follow easy step by step procedures. I’ve no doubt some of the expert builders such as Jerac or Raskolnikov could have come up with far better ways to achieve what I’ve done here. In fact Jerac gave me some late advice about proportions which prompted me to take another look at some of mine.

I built it purely from my head and really wanted to figure it all out on my own. I’m a pretty inexperienced builder so that led to some quite stressful periods during the build when I was convinced I wouldn’t be able to finish it, but the buzz was well worth it.

Sorry, that’s a long winded way of saying ‘No, sorry’ isn’t it? ;) maybe next time I’ll teach myself how to use Studio so I can make something for others.

Solid! The model looks simple but sufficiently detailed at the same time. I like it very much and it stands proud within the growing competition of mid scaled ISD models we have had lately :D

Thanks, :) that’s nice to hear given that it’s my first ship MOC. Prior to this I’ve only built scene MOC’s.
