Brilliant! The lights really add scale to the ship. Are you going to light the engines too?

If its not too much trouble PM how much you charge for a model like this. I would love to have one and you seem to be an expert modeler.

Thanks guys. Im not sure yet, this could be my last commission build. We have a Baby due any time now and eventually i will be staying at home and looking after her.
There was talk of a 1/4 diorama of Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers entering the Blockade runner.
As for how much i would charge , i dont Think i would do another one of these. Its just too much work.

Re: Randy Cooper Star Destroyer with lights.FINISHED

Finished at last. This is the huge resin 36 inch Randy Cooper Stardestroyer. Theres about 22 LEDs and a rediculous amount of Fibre optics used. I did enjoy the build but i would not do another. Too much work and too much time went into it. It will be off to its new owner soon so heres the photos while i still have it.











Heres a view underneath

Im the lucky client this masterpeice is going to, and what a masterpeice it is.
As always Andy you have done an absolutly fantastic job on this for me and cant wait to get my mits on it.
The lighting looks fantastic especially that rear end, that engine section looks real.
Pulling rabbits out of the hat is getting the norm now

All the very best with your new little project on its way :lol

And congratulations on your forthcoming live replica-of-mommy-and-daddy prop! :lol

This may very well be the sexiest thing I've ever seen.

I'm curious, what size fiber optic filament do you use?

And do you buy single strand and just cut to size?
