    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    @2mpaired yeah, the bridge is slightly too big, however that's because I really wanted to use the 3/12 wedges so there wouldn't be any gaps and I could have the best surface to work on putting the detail, and I plan on starting it at least sometime soon.

I have enough pieces in my collection to build the frame and maybe the underside, so ill get working on those first.

    @LEGODrongo01 I've just now past the piece count for the UCS so its going to have more pieces, however bricklinking it probably would be cheaper just because pieces are just cheaper there, its looking to be around 6500 at most with a lot being small greeble pieces.

    its currently 1m long, which is slightly smaller than the new UCS one.

    @Evergreen They should, thanks for reminding me, the last one is a different design.

    That's great to hear!

    Once I've completed it I will probably put the file up for download. whether or not I will make instructions depends, they seem like quite the investment to make, so we'll see once I've got it built in real bricks.

    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    Sith Star Destroyer by arkeeos, on Flickr The bridge is now complete! one of the most painful areas to get working was the 2 panels behind the bridge as they are at a very awkward angle. Ive also started work on some of the greebling on the superstructure, however im not 100% happy with it, and it will likely be changed. I've never really done any greebling like this before, so its a challenge getting to right balance of random and organized and messy and clean.

    It wasnt too hard, figuring out the angles is the hardest part, I just stole the frame of mine from @NathanR in this thread which gave me a starting point to then put the panels on. You could make the frame yourself but figuring out how to get everything to fit together perfectly is a pain.

    good point, I didn't notice the red stripe wasn't on the underside, on a second look the markings do look slightly different then what I have put down, However there is a larger red marking on the one shown in the teaser, thankfully its just a colour change, so it shouldn't be too hard to change when more reference is revealed.

    I think I will end up using those, thanks for telling me about them, but I cant seem to find them in LDD, so ill probably stick with the binocular pieces as a substitute for now. Its from a whole mish-mash of other peoples builds, the superstructure is mainly inspired by the new UCS star destroyers superstructure. yeah, I think randomizing the tiles, using a combination of them should create a more metallic plate look. Ill also add in some environmental damage using sand blue tiles, as these ships have been sitting in a maelstrom for 60 years or so.

    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    Sith Star Destroyer by arkeeos, on Flickr I'm 3500 pieces in now, surprisingly low for how much I've done, I've got a lot of the major stuff down, just got the back, bridge, engines and all the fine details such as greebling around the edges of everything and imperfections on the hull. And also the superlaser on the bottom, how ever there isn't any good reference for that, so ill have to wait until there is an official announcement and some proper images, or for the movie to come out. Very unsure on how to do the turbo lasers, as the star destroyer is too small for the 4x4 round piece while too big for 2x2 round piece, and for what I've tried there's no too much way to make a round object at a 3x3 scale, so im using the 3x3 plate with a turntable below, which is giving a very unfortunate square shape to them.

    No I’m going to use ball joints rather then magnets, because they are cheaper and create a stronger connection

    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    Oh yeah, the greebling is just temporary until I get all of the main bits worked out, then I can add some details to the panels, the Fleet seems to be pretty old even by the time of the empire and its been sitting in a giant storm so I plan on putting some environmental damage onto the panels

    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    With the new D23 special on the internet and the swarm of star destroyers being the highlight of it for me, I thought it would be fun to try and make this new star destroyer variant, it appears to be part of palpatines fleet with the sith troopers, as they both share the red colour. The Sith Star Destroyers appears to have a red trim around the edges and a super laser in the bottom of it, instead of the hanger bay, It also appears to be variant on the ISD 1 instead of the ISD 2 so there will be a more complicated sensor array to make. Ive attempted making a star destroyer in the past before, and gave up just about every time due to the angles never really working out and the superstructure being a pain in the megablocks, hopefully it turns out better this time. The previous ones measured around 70cm long, this one will be 110cm long, so its a bit more of a challenge.
