Revell 1:12300 Star Destroyer was created by grover
I grabbed this on a whim from Fishpond, being only $20 landed. Being a 1:12300 kit, it's pretty small
File Attachment:


But i didn't realise how small until I took it out of the box. God knows why this is a level 3 kit.
File Attachment:


There are details but at this scale those details are way overdone so I have started taking a snader to them to bring them down some
File Attachment:


I needed some weight in the back, just behind the mounting slot for the stand, but had a small glue accident. Lucky it was only PVA.

This should be a fun little build.

It's weird how Fishpond do their pricing. Occasionally they have some bargains but it's just as likely that today the same kit would be over $100 :)

1/12300 is an interesting scale. Reminds me of the early days of modelling when kits were sometimes refered to as 'box-scale' ie just scaled to fit into a standard cardboard box.

Yeah Fishpond are very weird like that. I dont really buy from them, but a $20 kit was worth a look

Did a little more this avo. Found the single decal lol
File Attachment:


I'll use a metallic paint on the engines so they got separated
File Attachment:


And I put the body together. There are some fit issues. I dont know if I'll bother addressing these
File Attachment:


And I primed everything in black. Hoping to create some shadows when I put the light grey on.

A single decal and Revell still put number 1 next to it on the sheet - it's not likely to get confused with another decal.
If I was laying out the sheet I'd call it number 3 just to mess with everyone's heads. :)

Looks like good progress. Lots of detail there for the black paint to hide in so should come out good.

It's a shame Revell didn't do the stand in clear plastic - I guess it would have doubled the price and bumped it up to 'Level 4'. :)

Very small, but you'll bring it to life very nicely. The black base coat is definitely the way to go.

Cheers Bishop

A little more done. I used a Dark iron Mr Metal for the engine cans
File Attachment:


Some of the joins weren't great so I had to reglue them and clamp them down
File Attachment:


Still not happy but it's just a quick build
File Attachment:


And a spray of light gull grey. Leaving it overnight and will look at what wash I want to use tomorrow. Maybe a naval grey or Flory grime wash?

Neat, Kane.

Hee hee! Is it even worth supplying the decal? They could have added this...

That's neat, should look good with a wash and maybe even a drybrush to sharpen the edges?

This he's alright, see his pics pop on FB at times with his lovely new daughter. So I think he's busy being a dad to a new born :)

Saw him comment on a post or two about a week or so ago, and that was about it on here. He's still lurking around I think

Yup still lurking and reading what I can. No bench time and between new job and kid, the only other thing I have time for at the moment is sleep. ;)
Been itching to get some bench time too, so hopefully with winter settling in I can take 30 minutes here and there

I feel somewhat guilty for not replying to peoples threads, but I barely get time to scroll through looking at the images and live vicariously through your posts

All good Grover. You are still lurking around that's the main thing.
I poke my nose in when I can, stupid hours but when your up your up.
No bench time for me recently either so feeling your pain.
Keep cool :cheer:
