Hi everyone!
After some two years of owning it, I finally managed to find time to tackle down this modelling project. One of the reasons is a planned home theater that I will make this summer, and it will need a couple of nice looking models to populate it :p

My end goal is to make this Avenger type ISD to look more like Devastator- therefore antenna and dorsal turrets will need some refitting.

After reading through a lot of builds here, I was inspired to make my model more detailed too, but didn't feel like buying dozens of model kits just to strip of greeblies, and here my trusty Ender 3 jumped in! After some experimenting with small nozzle sizes (0.1 & 0.2 mm) and small layer heights (0.08 mm), I concluded he is up to task of printing small scale greeblies. So I went through my collection of 3D models and after some online searching of freely available ones, I made a collection of good enough greeblies that can speed up the kitbashing process.
For mandatory Tantive IV in hangar, I have micromachines that roughly fits the scale, but I think I will also print one just to see if I can pull out better details.
I still haven't tested 0.04 and 0.02 mm layer height, could give some good results if I dial it in some more.

You can download greeblies for yourself down below. And I saw some of you already found it before I posted it ;)


In addition to greeblies, I made some more aesthetically important parts- like the rings and flaps on engines, and turrets (which are still in testing mode and considered WIP).

This shouldn't be a long build, but it's far from over...

WOW! Those greeblies are awesome. Your kit is going to look fantastic when completed. Thanks for sharing the link to the files.

Very cool stuff. Saw this just yesterday thanks to this post and downloaded it immediately, so they were definitely on top of things. Thanks for putting this all together, it will be a tremendous help.

I saw your link on FB and posted it up in Madhatter's thread (though maybe I should have created a new one...sorry mate!). Well done, this is something that builders like myself and Invar could have used when we started our Zvezda SD builds a couple of years back. Sure beats cutting and carving styrene bits from scratch, lol.

What I'm really waiting for is someone to 3D print a bridge tower that situates the command head at the proper angle. As the kit sits as standard, the head is parallel to the side trench, when it should be aligned with the top of the superstructure and angled down slightly.
