I guess the question was visible, or not visible!
Visible!!!
So it should be light gray!

 

Thanks, hope to see your review on Monarch some day!

Wow, beautiful build, the hanger detailing is fantastic! 

The lightings can also be included inside of the structure around the hanger bay.

That's very true. Both builders have completely different building styles. Both inside and outside are very different, even though they represent the same model (a Star Destroyer). And there is certainly no 'best' design. They're so different, they're both great in their own right.

Like choosing between a Ferrari or a Lamborghini :tongue:

can I be the Lamborghini?

Some iPhone pics I wanted to share of the ISD Monarch I completed a few weeks ago. By far my favorite build and was worth the sore fingers! Love the size of this thing! I kept all the exterior tile pieces MSG as I prefer the clean look. Also switch out the the 4531 Hinge tiles to the 1x3 tiles instead as the hinge tiles I bought were used and look a bit old. The instructions were great with some challenging parts like putting the middle engine section into place as it's a really tight fit. The 30374 bar 4L used to hold the 3 large death star half together felt a bit short so I used the 351894 plastic hose I had left over instead.

I was hoping someone would post some pictures of this one out in the wild. You've done exactly what i would do (use LBG tiles for the whole exterior). In fact it looks like you've really gone all in and even painted the turrets? 

How stable over time do you think the tip of the nose is going to be?. It already looks like the bottom panels are drooping a bit there. I noticed this on Onecases original pictures as well. It looks like there isn't much in the way of connection points at the very front tip of the ship.

Having nitpicked that, I've said it before and I'll say it again: this is an absolutely gorgeous model. Great to see it here in natural light. I'm about to build the Aggressor but can definitely see myself building this in a year or so.

This is the very first shot I've seen apart from my own build, you made such a wonderful comparison with other ships. Thank you for this.

I still love the tiled "ONECASE" signature.

Those are some great photos of the Monarch! If I may, would you mind answering a couple of questions I have regarding the Monarch? Its mainly about the parts for the MOC.

What were some of the other rare pieces in the build, asides from the hinge (4531) and the container (4424)?

Also how important is the Hinge Plate 1 x 2 with 3 Fingers On Side (2452) for the build? Is it for greebling or does it have structural importance?

I'm about 70% done with getting the pieces for the build.  Off the top of my head, the list below are either ones still being looked for or are hard to get in quantity needed.  They are all available but can be expensive to get.

298c03 lever small base with light gray lever - black

6141 1x1 plate round - dark red

604552 tool wrench - flat silver

98115 - Death Star hemisphere - the bottom half is harder to get than the top

12885 paint roller - light bluish gray

75c14 hose - light bluish gray

3043 slope - light bluish gray - substituted light gray for this

85861 1x1 plate round with hollow stud - orange

6141 1x1 plate round - sand green

3960 4x4 dish inverted - trans clear

Note that the top should work almost as well as the bottom :)
