Deep from inside the Maw comes the Empires latest design a planet killer, called the Death Star 1 (DS-1), which is an Orbital Battle Station. It was designed by Raith Sienar, Bevel Lemelisk, and Galen Erso. It was designed and built to strike fear into the enemies of the Empire and to bring a swift end to the Rebellion. The top secret project was overseen by the Emperors most trusted leaders, Lord Darth Vader, Grand Moff Tarkin, and Director Krennic. Project took over three years to complete as construction was done when time was available. The Emperor was not pleased to say the least. Tried to create most of the major scenes from the movie. (Note this is the first Death Star, so no Emperor Throne room.) Used the movie and the Death Star Haynes Owner's Technical Manual to assist during the build. The Haynes Manual was a major help. AFOLS that get a honorable mention for inspiration are AC-Pin, Raskolnikov (TIE Interceptor is his design), and Brickplumber. Thanks guys! The majority of the build was complete at the two year mark, but I did not like how the it did not represent a "round" shape. After taking a year sabbatical I came back to it and came up with a solution in the form of slope and inverted slope pieces to fill in the void and create a more "rounder" shape. I also had to go back in and rework the lighting as well. Lighting was done by Brickstuff, and much thanks to the owner Rob Klingberg for his help. Custom Stickers were designed by OK BrickWorks, who did an awesome job! Show circuit, hopefully BF AL, BF VA, and Brickworld Chicago. Was banking on Star Wars Celebration, but failed to make the Fan Display cut. Consists of 12 levels, all accessible by turbo lifts. The red symbols on the Med Bay floor are the Red Cross symbols for that era. All hallways are accessible and interconnecting, no dead ends. All doors are functional and open. No metal supports. Each level is modular for transport. If you notice, the garbage chute is under the Prison Bay. You can see Chewie diving into the chute from the Prison Corridor.
