This is my entry for Mood Swim's Star Destroyer contest. It is a 32x32 vignette depicting the Falcon's escape from Hoth. The base is a mosaic showing Hoth and, uh, space, of course! A Star Destroyer(the Avenger?) pursues the Falcon into the planet's asteroid belt.
About this creation
First off, I did not copy this entry. I built mine, checked out the group to see if anyone else had made an entry, and - ARRGGHHH!!! But, anyway, I never saw the other entry until after mine was built and photographed. Any and all resemblences are purely coincedental.
Here's a detail shot on the Star Destroyer, which is, quite obviously, the focal point of the model.
The top half has as many details as I could think of: Bridge with shield generator and comm array, 10 orbital batteries (4 on each side and 2 just forward of the superstructure), 3 main engines, and 2 smaller directional thrusters(which is as many as would fit).
The bottom is also fully detailed: Life support and the ventral hanger bay with boarding hatch.
I know someone out there will ask for intructions - I'm not making any. However, I have provided a cutaway view. The top half is held together by nine clips on the bottom and eight in the superstructure. The botton is more fragile. It's held by nine clips attached to the central spine, two clips for life support, and two clips to fill in the bow. the two halves are connected by a clip and a bar in near the engines.
While I was at it, i couldn't resist whipping up a UCS-style stand. I call it the MCS Imperial-class Star Destroyer - Microscale Collector's Series. Apparently, this MOC was so accurate, that when I showed it to my Dad, he asked me,"Where'd you buy it?"
Last but not least, here's the micro Falcon, not to scale, but I was going for detail and it's not really noticeable.
Please rate and leave a comment.
By the way, can anyone tell me where the name "Millenium Falcon Pursuit" is from?
