John, Yeah...I think once the shape is done, the rest is the fun part I think. I built my structure without having many kits, so I've been buying as I go along..mainly 1/700 Hasegawa kits. You can see, I'm using a fair bit of artistic license with the model. It's ANH size, but it's got an element of the larger model in it.
Here's my last update for a while. I've difused the light in the docking bay area. Sorry for the crappy pic, but I had the lighting down and had to alter the levels to compensate.
HOLY.........My god man thats AWESOME!!!! I just found this thread and I have to say that I'm humbled by your work! I'm stunned to hear that my ISD was an inspiration to you...I'm honored....thanks so much for the mention. It's so cool to see someone else doing in of these suckers. I can't wait to see how your upper superstructure/bridge turns out. You da MAN!!!
Your pics above are of the 3 footer from ANH yes? I ask because they look a lot differnet from the pics I took at MoM in Brooklyn a while back of the ESB SD... Just calrifying so we all know what we are looking at
thanks Robert. I'm gonna finish the bridge area once I have completed the lighting inside. I think I'll find the angles on the bridge quite a challenge to be honest. I'm running out of kits to use to detail the flipping thing too
