Tesoe's (probably) Overly Ambitious 1/2256 fleet
Posted by Tesoe on Monday, November 06, 2017 10:52 PM

Got my JPG Acclamator and Revell Venator in. Now to get to work on my own little fleet. When I was picking up the Venator I found an AMT star destroyer with fiber optic kit in the hobby shops bargain bin. Since my goal for this project to learn how to do fiber optic lighting I figured I could use it as a test bed. Not looking forward to all this drilling, but I'll live. Anyone have a suggestion on where to get some better turbolasers for the AMT Star Destroyer?

Looks like a nice collection of SW models there! Sorry no idea on where to get aftermarket parts but hope you'll post photos of them when finished.

That's the plan! And photos of the build itself.

Nice group of models. I think you will like that Acclamator. Could not find any am turbo lasers, but you can use 1/700 quad bofor guns from waterline series WWII battleships. That is what I used on mine.

Nice! That's for the info. I'll take a look for those.
