    That's what I expecting too! Once finished, I would like to recreate some iconic scenes from the movies with this ship filming in front of a green screen with some light effects!

    I think I would make a glass or an acrylic showcase box to cover her, with a mirror base to reflect the details under her body. Let's see.

    Good idea for a Hoth ice cave! However, after watching The Rise of Skywalker new trailer, now I'm thinking about to put her in a frozen asteroid somewhere! :D:D:D

    I'm sorry @paplexworld, but... why do you call it "her" ????
    (plase note: i'm french, and I was said that things cannot neither be called "he" nor "she", only "it")

    Ah, sorry.
    From what I know, we usually call a ships "she" for long,
    Why? please read more info here https://safety4sea.com/cm-do-you-know-why-is-a-ship-called-she/

    and as the Star Destroyer is also another "ship", so I called it "her".
    Anyway, I will use "it" when I reply to you!
    I'm not French anyway :D

    Full view of the details under her hull.
    Maybe that's enough for scoring works on the surface, but I will add some more embossing parts later.

    The next step will be the details around the hangar bay!

    @paplexworld I see that the model you're building (or built) on the Facebook page appears to be near (or fully) complete...is this the same one, or is it another one?

    Again with a full view of all details under the ship.
    (The top and bottom parts can be separated. Makes working on this area much easier.)
    You will see that the details around the ship's hulls are now also mostly finished.

    More details around the hangar bay are coming. I might add a tiny TIE fighters into it too, but after the main craft has been completed.

    Have you an idea about the total number of hours you spent on that, until now (and we know she's not yet finished?

    Since then, I’ve been finished the details under the ship and now working on the top panel with the same method. The technic I use is to draw the lines with pencil then do scoring to “engrave” those carbon lines into the paper surface. This technic will make the lines visible clearly for decades.

    Now with one full view shot… so many things left to do!
    scoring works is going on, covering the panels one by one.
    After finish this part I would go for the details around the tiers.

    Yes, it's the same one! the one you see on Facebook is the most updated status of this same ship. But for this forum, I let my girlfriend helps me to share it here, as she's also quite busy so it's not up to date as on Facebook ;)
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 14, 2019, Original Post Date: Dec 14, 2019 ---
    I'm not sure, but calculated by days I've spent until now, I think it's totally somehow about 700-800 hours ;)

    Covering all the blank space with detailed pieces. However, after looking at the turrets again and again, now I'm really not satisfied with them! the details of it look pretty bad according to the close view photos of the original studio model I've just got lately. So... I think I will remake it soon!
