    This thread is to update the progress of my personal project “Star Destroyer Paper Model Project” (see details below).
    I’ll keep updating the progress every 1-2 weeks. Just a friendly sharing of my own work with you guys who are Star Wars fans and paper model lovers around the world!

    ------------------------------------
    - What am I going to build? -
    A BIG, highly detailed, neatly made IMPERIAL II CLASS STAR DESTROYER paper model. Planned to be 110 cm long & 66 cm wide, this would become one of the world’s biggest and most perfect Star Destroyer paper model once it’s completed.

    ------------------------------------
    - What’s so special about this project? -
    Let me make it clear, this piece of art will be a true PAPER model, the only material will be used to construct this model is pure various types of paper (and glue). No plastic parts or wooden structure, no painting, no digital texture or any printed part, electricity, etc., ONLY PAPER.

    And to make it even more challenging, this model will be completely made by hand. Scaling and measuring will be done by hand tools, no computer or calculator will be used. Cut by scissors and paper cutting knife only, no electronic or automatic cutting machine will be used as well.

    For conclusion, what you will see here is a progress of the meter-long hand-built Star Destroyer paper model, THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD.

    Please follow the fanpage to see our progress: https://www.facebook.com/PaperStarDestroyer/

    The very first update is here!
    With the help of information collected from the internet and many books as a reference, now the first few pieces of this Star Destroyer are shaping up! the main top and bottom panels have been placed with supporting structures.
    More updates will come soon!

    PS. This is a non-commercial project

    Some progress after weekends.
    Now the supporting structures of the main panels have been done, with some scored details on it.
    You can see 3 holes that have been cut for installing hangar bays and reactor core later.
    (More details will be added on the panels after I finished the main body)

    Now the upper part is rising.
    The duty stations have been stacking up layer by layer.
    an X marks on the panel shows the area where I'll soon working on for the next step.
    It still looks quite clean now, much more details to go!

    BIG UPDATE HERE!

    A few days worth for this command tower!
    with the help of some close shot from ESB and the picture of the original studio model used in the filming of Star Wars, now I can refer these sources for details around the command tower. However, I feel like the thick paper can't be used to create smaller details, I may use another type of paper to make it look better soon!

    PS. there's a small piece of plastic frame I put on the backside of the tower, this one is only to remind me not to forget to create a grid panel using paper, so the plastic frame will be replaced with the new paper part later. (please note that I'm strictly sticking to my concept that this model will be made with paper only!)

    The deflector shield generator dome is coming along with the tractor beam targeting array!
    Just make it roughly first, then I would add more details on it after I finish other parts.

    The turrets are finally installed!
    It took me 2 days for these turret panels, but it came out quite impressive. However, I don’t think that I’m satisfied with the turrets yet… would add something to make it more realistic later.

    Time to fill the empty area with some details!
    Now the side of the tiers is getting covered with tiny pieces.
    It’s easier for me to arrange these details on a single panel then put the whole thing on the place.

    First time with a full view!
    Looks like finished? Not yet, this is only about 50%!...
    There are still many more details to be added.

    However, another important part of this update is.. the Star Destroyer is now lifting off the ground! (or at least it looks like it is.) With an acrylic base I've just made, this will help me a lot working around and under her body!

    Details around the ship's body gradually increasing more and more! this combination of thousand of pieces might take me a few more days to finish it.

    The side of the tiers is now mostly covered with details, as well as the command tower. But the top of each panel is still too empty, I will add more pieces to give her some glance of realistic appearance!

    4 small engines (Cygnus Spaceworks Gemon-4 ion engines) are now ready to be installed. Some more small details inside the nozzles will be added later.

    After this, I'll start working on the main hangar bay...
    The next update (would be on Monday) will be a big milestone! Stay tuned!

    With a sprinkling of photoshopping I reckon this thing is going to be hard to tell from the movies by the time it’s finished! *applause*. :)

    He will keep it comfortably frozen in a wampa's cave.
