Zvezda Star Destroyer- Finished!

After nearly three months, she's all done. What a wonderful and fun kit to build. I look forward to building a second one with lots of mods. Enjoy the pics.

I'd swear she were the studio model if I didn't know better.

Sweet!  I plan getting one when Revell issues it here.

 

Are the lights part of the kit or are they something you added?  Either way, they look beautiful!

Thanks guys.It was a fun build.

David, no lights come with the kit. I did them on my own. I used bulk pre-wired LEDs I got on eBay from China. I got 50 of them for about $6. They came wired with resistors already soldered on.

I did a much darker wash on her, and now the details really pop! Some more pics before she gets boxed up...I sold her!

Unbelievable. At first I thought I was looking at movie screen caps. Fantastic work.

I am definitely going to have to get one! I hope Revell releases it this year. I wonder what the price will be? $100 like the Zvezda?
