Thank you so much for that link to the perfect tool! I just bought one
The grey sheet is Hobby Base 0.14mm sheet styrene. Its no longer made but I bought a fair bit if it a few years ago
It came in 1, 1.5, 2 and 5 mm strips as well which I also bought a packet of each, however, I'm nearly out of those and will have to resort to cutting strips off the B4 sized sheet

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

hi guys
quick update. I've finished with the top side of the nose section for now and won't be adding any more surface detail to it until it's joined to the rear section.
I'll be moving on the the main superstructure sidewalls and finish those off plus the roof sections and then add the last of the surface detail to the right side.

Sorry for worktop pictures, but I couldn't be bothered getting out the photo tent tonight - too much effort

















It's current rest place:

Well, that's it for now but as always, thanks for stopping in and having a look
Till next time

That is a lot of teeny tiny itty-bitty etsie-weenie pieces! But all looking well worth the time. Certainly brings it more alive.

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

Thanks Thom



So, I have managed to get most of the starboard sidewalls and roof parts detailing done with only 3 left to go. Then it'll be time to blend in the walls to the surface and add some other stuff around - then the last part of the top side surface detailing will be over.
I'm still deciding if I will paint first then add the fiber or vice versa. I'm leaning toward paint first because I just think it'd be too hard to be able to trim off fibers without damaging the paint work but shuddering at time it'll take to do it like that. No pain no gain right?
Anyway, here's some pics of where I am at currently



















That's it for now, but as always, thanks for stopping in and having a look

Wow. You must have excellent eyesight and steady hands. That is some detailing.

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

I had the camera out today for other things and decided today is a good a day as any to take a couple of update shots. I'm not as far along as I would have liked but I had the spare time. I'm almost finished the top. I just have to finish the edging and then the top will be considered done.

I test fitted the bridge to the body to make sure I could. There are definitely going to be fitting issues but nothing some super glue won't take care of. Looks like I'll also have to add some more details once the body has been glued together to help tie in the areas better. This adds to the ever compounding issue of painting first or not (first world problems....)











































Anyways, that's all the pics I took but thanks for looking in.

Si

The amount of finger-cramping you must experience is incredible. Such as your work.
Is that a phone I hear in the distance? Is ILM calling?

Default Re: Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

Thanks guys. Thom - I wish but I think the days of ILM calling on model builders is well and truly over with thanks to CGI.

As for the build, well, I have about 4 cm left of the top side to do then I'll flip it over to add a few details underneath
All being well, this should see the first coat of paint next week - if not, the week after
