Incredible. I've been watching your builds for years on various sites and the work is always inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks very much for the kind post Torgg - I appreciate that.

hey guys
I've started the roof panels now and added some details onto the body to try and blend it al in a bit better. It's slow work but quite rewarding (well, to me it is)
I'll start making my way forward now and finish off this side and then mentally prep myself to start all over again for the other side! Joy











I only took 5 pictures before the light ran out, so that's it till next time. Which incidentally won't likely be until I have finished most of the other side, so another few weeks away.
I'm also going to take the plunge and teach myself how to use Arduino boards, which ought to be interesting. There's heaps of forums about how to do it, so I reckon I'll pick it up easy enough. (famous last words)
Thanks as always for looking. Feel free to comment - good or bad. enough.
Cheers
Si

Looking fantastic! I don't have the patience - nor the eyesight - for that!

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

Whenever I try to attach little ďbitsĒ like youíve done they mostly just turn out to be slightly melted blobs. Iíve tried using tweezers and dipping the bottom of the bit into some glue but in order to do that the glue has to be in something big enough to accept the tweezers which means the CA glue evaporates/dries from the open container quickly. Then I tried applying the glue while holding the bit in place but then you just get a big blob of the CA over and around the bit which I donít see on your pics, so I donít think you do it that way. Iím sorry if this has been asked before but could you share how you apply your ďbitsĒ to the model?

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

Yeah happy to share the method. I very lightly skewer the part with the pointy end of a knife and dip.the bit into a small puddle of Tamiya ET cement. The puddle evaporates pretty quickly though so you have to top it up frequently ( just dip the brush into the liquid and drop it onto the edge of the bottle )
Tweezers work ok for larger parts but I find an exacto knife to be the best way to attach parts
Hope that helps?

That's an awesome tip... is that the same procedure for the piping? thanks!

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

Depends on the size really. For the small stuff yes otherwise I'll use tweezers for the larger ones. With tweezers you just need to grab one end and dip the other end into a ET puddle.
Only use CA on brass or resin though unless you've got a wickedly stubborn join. Again a puddle of CA on a strip of masking tape is the way I go when using it. You can control the amount of glue used on the part much better that way. I'm onky referring to small parts though and not long or large surfaces

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

hi fellas
Time for a quick update. The wife is heading away for a week with the boy, so I shall have lots of spare time to invest in getting some serious work done on this - provided World of Warships doesn't interfere too much. I promise nothing....

I've started work on the "nose" as you'll see. I steered clear of cutting it off and dropping it like others before me. Fair enough if I was replicating the studio build but it's not necessary here. I realised I had cut out the backing board where the front roof sits thinking there would be something sitting in front of it - there is, but it's not what I thought. A quick sheet of styrene fixed that and I shall add some detail to it in due course. My intention is to have some pipes running back over the edge up into the cavity above it.
Time will tell if that will be something that could work as the roofs will be the last thing to be glued on after the fibers have gone in.
Still lots of detail to add to the rest of the surface but I am getting there slowly but surely



























The rear side roofs are also completed and ready to go on. They were a nice quick and easy job - well, in consideration of everything else they were







Well, that's all I have for now, but hopefully the next update will be better
As always, thanks for stopping by and having a look
Si

The next update will be better... As if this one wasn't!

Again, great on the added details. Really bringing it 'alive.' Also really liking the overhangs you've put around the roofs. Very nice!

Hi again

Last update before a short tools down period. I've not really spent as much time on the bench as I thought I would but did still manage some decent progress

The front end is as busy as I want it now. Just need to start filling out areas around the hull. I won't go to crazy as I want to try keep to the grand scale and immensity of the ship.

At the same time, most of this detail will likely be obscured by the paint.






































Well, that's it for now but feel free to share any thoughts you may have

Till next time

Si

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

Hi everyone - happy new year! Hope we all managed to get some bench time in. I know I didn't



So I have not long gotten back from holidays and decided it was high time I expended some time into this project. To be honest, I spent a lot of time thinking about this build and the things I could add and by the end of it, was busting to start back onto it.
Also, finally, I have settled on the base layout and how it's going to be displayed. It'll look pretty wicked if I get it right. BTW, does anyone know of a way to bend brass tube to an angle of 90 degrees whilst still maintaining the structural integrity of the tube itself, as in, not collapse in on itself?


So, I got home and promptly got bored of detailing the main body so I decided to move onto something else for a while. In this instance, I chose the top nose piece to play with. Better than my own one right?


Zvezda have created these rather large, blank protrusions from the top surface which just look like blocks. They appear to have no function what so ever. They're just sit there like a zit.
Can't have that, can we now. So, dress it up with some strip shelves, add some various piping and you have something much more interesting. I'll even try to stick in a fiber optic or 2.


There's just some more plates to add then I'll look at the undersides of those edges and add some detail to those as there are woefully lacking. Then it'll be back to the main body and finish that off before moving onto the bottom half.


Anyway, here's where I currently stand:


























And I just couldn't help myself, and took a pic which it joined up - just to remind myself of how big this ship is of course







Well, that's all I have for now, but I will be back in a while once the nose is done.

As always, thanks for sticking around and having a look

Si

Just beautiful and painstaking work! What thickness styrene are you using as surface detail here? It's hard to judge scale as this looks 1:1.

As far as bending brass tubing, there is a tool that does that just like what is used in the construction trades for bending copper pipe or electrical conduit. For small diameter brass tubing , check out this resource:
