    Thanks Randy13, I'm happy to hear that you like it



    The front piece went by fast. I had to rebuild the Flak carriage that was glued to the front of the neck. The new one is better. I still have to add four pieces of bent plastic rod, but I can't do that until the area that's just in front is detailed. You won't be able to see these pieces in any of the images on the internet, but they are visible in Sculpting a Galaxy, they more than likely broke off over the years.

    With the tower and the neck completed, I'll start on the superstructure, the top should be a nice break.

    I've read the entire thread and enjoyed every minute. This is simply stunning work - and I mean 'stunning' in the literal sense: I stared slack-jawed at each update mute with admiration. You are in a league of your own.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    Hello all, I'm working on the base of the tower (highlighted yellow) and I would like some help on identifying some partas on the studio model. The parts are highlighted on the insert of the image.

    Thank you for the assistance,

    I scratched up some detail pieces, the tank treads in the center at the tower neck, the Flak 38 pieces are next to them. I also made some detail pieces for the front, a piece from the Duster, a couple more from the flak 38, and the nine armour plates. I'll pencil in the panel lines once the basecoat gets sprayed on.

    Wow, I just saw this today. Incredible job. I am amazed at the scale you are working in; I would drive myself crazy cutting out all those tiny pieces, but your work is so clean and precise. This must be amazing to see in person. I can't wait to see it progress.

    I finally finished the last of the details for the top level of the Superstructure. I'll work on all the top decks, before placing the side details. I also finished the last details for the front of the neck. I used some brass rod for the four conduits at the base of the neck. I hope you guys like the pics.

    Thanks guys.

    KingJawa, I have a SS TIE Bomber that I want to finish. I'm also preparing for a SS Millennium Falcon, a 1/144 Echo Base Hanger, 1/144 AT-AT and Snowspeeder dio. I also have my sights on scratching a Death Star II, an Interdictor.... and not to mention all the kits that I have.

    I'll be busy for the forseeable future.

    Hello all,

    I need a little help identifying the kits that these parts came from, I'm hoping that someone may provide some assistance.

    If ever the phrase "labour of love" were apt for a project, then surely this is it.
    The level of talent involved is staggering. I hope you realise just how much joy you're giving people like me in sharing this build. I'll never, ever be able to put something like this together but at least I can enjoy such a project vicariously.
