    I done a good thing, George!!

    Inspired by gofficfool's design thread, I downloaded and built the SF Paper Gallery Star Destroyer. Not a bad little model for a 2 day build...





    The picture quality isn't the greatest, I'm afraid. This model wqs built for a neighbor to thank him for letting put my car in his driveway during out 18 inch snowstorm. It was in his possession by the time I looked at the pics, and he loved it! Made it look even better to me to see his reaction.

    I did some extra lamination to give the model some extra detail. both pieces of the hull are double prints, with the outer layer trimmed back. And the surface "plating" area were laminated onto some 80 # card stock I had laying around.

    Felt good to finish a nice looking model, and give it to someone who will truely enjoy it....

    Quite an awesome model! I would not have known where to stop, I kinda feel like laminating every single detail on this one...probly be my demise...

    Here's a tip for the next one: instead of folding up the engines as-is, cut off the ribbed section off the end of each of the big engines, cut off a segment, then glue it together. After assembling the remaining part of the engine, edge-dlue it to the engine, but backwards. this will end up making it look a lot more like the studio model's engines.

    I'm not 100% sure what you mean, but I did notice a fit issue with the engine bell parts. Also, the "plates" the big engine bells fit to could use some paint. Should I build it again (I've been thinking of a scaled down version), I would copy the details that get covered by the plates onto them, and try your suggestions (I'm sure they'd make more sense to me if I were looking at the model)
