[MOC] Venator class-star destroyer - The Vigilance (WIP)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'd like to present here my current project - Venator in UCS scale.

I set few requirements:
- as faithful to the original model as possible
- completely SNOT/studless
- interior (all 4 hangars)
- use only active and relatively accessible Lego parts
- easy to transport in separated modules
- the same size like my previous Venator

Always love to see a new Venator! The end result should be awesome being studless, as I can’t recall seeing any studless designs at this scale. The engines are looking especially good!

Wow great start and I echo the comment on the engines - looking fantastic - I can't wait to see what it looks like fully snot'ed as your original was a great looking beast.

Yeah those engines are excellent.  Gives a lot of texture and realism which wasn't really present in the films.

Hey!

here is the current work in progress, I'm building some parts in real bricks now so I didn't do so much progress in total :)

This is going to look better in bricks than it did in CGI.  I love the texturing of the bridge.  I will definitely be purchasing.
