  1. Pro Tip... if you get the ship in FUD be sure to set it out in good direct sunlight for about 6 to 8 hours... this helps to completely cure the FUD material (they use ultra violate light to cure the material after the print) and leaches out the last of the oils that seep from the material. And no, to won't' melt; I take my stuff to work and leave it on a paper towel on the dashboard of my car all day long in the Texas sun. It turns the material from clear to milky white and removes the oil resin from the model so painting it isn't as complicated as it can sometimes get with FUD. When I do this the paper towel always has an oil stain under it... which is why I use paper towels on my dashboard. I then scrub my stuff in simple green with hot water. Here is a simple test. Before you sun treat it rub you finger over a large flat area of the model; you'll feel the slippery oil on it... after you sun treat it and clean it off that area should fell squeaky clean. Trust me on this. I do tons of stuff in FUD for a few years now... ships and 15mm tanks. 15mm FUD tank... E-100 FUD Imperial Cruisers
  2. Base model is the Star Wars™ SnapTite® Build and Play Imperial Star Destroyer by Revell https://www.revell.com/model-kits/entertainment/85-1638.html#.WsbaMGeouUk I use the bridge from Mels ISD 1 conversion kit. This bridge design and size was used on all Imperial ships ISD size or larger. https://www.shapeways.com/product/YLQ9P2PZ4/armada-imperial-star-destroyer-i-mod-kit?optionId=59918502 allot of the turrets are from here... https://www.shapeways.com/shops/spacesupplydepot and here... https://www.shapeways.com/shops/einargosric Dome and other bits form here... https://www.shapeways.com/product/PXMTCRLJB/mulcien-ship-parts?optionId=42962753&li=ostatus Your around $100 with that stuff... Here is my first ship the Leviathan class Star Destroyer Leviathan next to a ISD and a Victory . These ships are about 3200 meters https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/16425882_1378291658901389_5582425903134458144_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&_nc_eui2=v1%3AAeEHUVtBw9LiMngKoUzcahPbVQWJwxfTtIAGbq34oTPq8Rt9Lhxt0Mc6vbBqnxgI9KZdDb_ESPK3VSVK4bj7CfiTRZD6x0LeYaoOdVkqshyGLQ&oh=f46fb28d93d81676e01cdace8af2d6c8&oe=5B693D8A
  3. From Revell ISD model.... top side construction... https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/29745081_1826514217412462_2853910105721409187_o.jpg?_nc_cat=0&_nc_eui2=v1%3AAeHc12xwgntXHAcMPkghPWC8y4A75ad8PIg1coqN4SKOZJMexKoNTwoYEx2Lr0_heSPcJiEFvfYTWrw_lWPlixhhTAmxMvWuPfVBkuoEKWol6w&oh=d5c2c8c89d6b3be5a73243879052bb5e&oe=5B632832 https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/29749495_1826514377412446_7546833167886130094_o.jpg?_nc_cat=0&_nc_eui2=v1%3AAeEZkXC3utOFfpixf_DrCMLAEd8Ml3xIfb7FFTscYhiv4a8OeLLxNgMZ7O9EBmik4gB2aXAlLh3N2-sgitCTBBCihIKPMXS30267pXyba7SMmQ&oh=066b1701b20d295d7d96ada5597f141a&oe=5B2EBBB5 https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/29792527_1826514774079073_1522702515520549030_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&_nc_eui2=v1%3AAeEIgQSl_8K--a114zzKwMCbq6RHxPBTqUbZBhC3MMvg-ZAWQXaDHwg5LpIDUwGatqrB32FR6wmD4-NOlYL7ICmIMamCRygvXon2uj4P1HWMAQ&oh=f541eae4b0ba4535c99a5bdf2f7372a3&oe=5B68EAE4 https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/29790461_1826514674079083_7009863008141727018_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&_nc_eui2=v1%3AAeEPjVHFOYLQ0-P6NqGRPaKguXXV2WNnQxjIU2CWfuYZBt7HDb5w2FnbON3IBUF92Z9s9INXVJojbt6fNUJOcE48sC-wpgXZHg3khdtQidMdbA&oh=6a7ee8d85b83b813a3a3fc1c2b2cbed8&oe=5B2CE67D
  4. Pro tip: It's the resin oil from uncured FUD material. They cure the stuff in ultra violet light after printing. This is not always 100% so let the parts sit in direct sun light for at least an hour or two... this cures the FUD resin all the way trough and sweats out any remaining oils from the material. Then wash the parts in simple green and rinse in hot water. Trust me on this...
  5. It's the thought that counts, right and why not on "smaller big ships"?... Pattern is made painting base coat then taping over it and spraying the next color, rinse and repeat. This ship is Mels 1/7000 Vindicator with a modified bridge (using BFG bits) a dual turbo-blaster turret added to the front for effect. It makes an excellent "light" class Star Destroyer. It will have a little more beef to than other ships of it's class. Base colors only for now.
  6. I think Fractalsponge's model would make an awesome VSD mk3... I wish Mel would get with him and see if he'd let him make it for us. I'd buy one for sure just to have it. Perhaps he could make two versions... one with the missile bays opened and the other with them closed. But, sadly, I suspect it's wishful thinking on our part.
  7. LOL I was actually brain farting around with the idea of having the front detach form the rest of the ship to make a SD type escort ship... when the escort ship separates it exposes a huge hanger bay opening in the front making the larger rear section a strike carrier; imagine a gigantic Gladiator SD with an Imperial SD escort built into it. @gounourYeah, its like 23 inches long and will fit on a 4x6 table. It's moment will be 1 with 1 turn in it. Of course it would only be used in special games.
  8. Got the model today and it's going to be an awesome project. Next to my Leviathan class Star Destroyer and an ISDII... it's about 6,000 meters. The front section is bigger that a ISD...LOL More to follow
  9. Big time mods... It will have an armada scaled bridge and other features like clusters of turbo blaster turrets and such. I'm also going to get some of the decking parts 3d printed with mods to them to fit Armada scale turrets and stuff... I might redo the back engine bit as well Here is the scale... the Revell SD I use for the Leviathan/Nemesis class Star Destroyer (3200 meters) inside the Zvezda model. This will be a deradnought class Star Destroyer (all be ti on the smaller side of that class). It will be a huge ship built to fight and destroy groups of smaller ships.
  10. Just when you thought Leviathan and its sister ship where the bane of the rebellion along comes project "Blue Bonnet" ... the next generation Star Destroyer built on the concept of a massive ship designed to fight and destroy a fleets of smaller ships. The ship will be about 4000 meters armada SD scale. Zvezda Star Wars 9057 Imperial Star Destroyer 1/2700 scale model kit I just bought on E-bay. I ordered one today.
  11. Oh and the rearward two center turrets are raised up on 1/8 plastic tubes drilled into the hull...
  12. A Command Star Destroyer (1,200 meters) built from the Interdictor Star Destroyer hull. The gravity wells were removed and replaced with enhanced sensor domes for better command and control functions. The powerful reactor used on the Interdictor allowed for more power to it's weapons and sensors making this ship a powerful command ship that can fight as well as command. The model is Mel's 1/4000 scale (now unavailable) Vindicator in FUD. Turrets are Gosric's and the sensor towers and domes are Mulcien Ship Parts . I used Tamya masking tape to make the edging... much better than free handing it with my now shaky old hands. (sigh)
  13. Here is the Corvan Pandyras Class Corvette...
  14. I got mine a few days ago and they are awesome... here are a few on two of Gosric's Imperial light cruiser models I customized up a bit... they make excellent secondaries on the bigger capital ships and great primaries on cruisers and stuff. Gosric's turrets are on the forward side positions in the center of the battery... top is the quad turret , bottom is the triple turret.
