Star Wars Commerce Guild Destroyer
Commerce Guild Destroyer from Episode III.
About this creation
Well its been a while since my last creation. I've been doing a "Pirates of the Carribean" type of project by making my third and fourth ships simultaneously. I will release them 1 month apart.

Up first is my Commerce Guild Destroyer from Star Wars Episode III. It is 130 cm (51") long and about 20" wide. It contains about 5200 pieces and weighs about 22 pounds. Like my other ships, it is lined with transparent yellow tiles representing windows. There is about 400 of them on this ship. I'll post pics of the windows + engines lighting up later.

To design the ship I used the Episode III Incredible Cross-sections book along with the picture of the ship from starwars.com. The movie contained lots of destroyers but none were seen in any major encounters, so the DVD was useless for a reference. I started designing the ship from the front and worked my way all the way to the back. Luckily it is the only ship in Episode III with linear shaped engines so I did not have to worry about them as much. Howeveer the ship's outerhull across the top is curved so I used 100's of 1x3 angled pieces arranged in such a way as to make the protective hull look curved.

It took about 30 hrs to construct or about 1 month. This is because of many shipping delay's for pieces. However since the delays were only two weeks I won't hold any grudges from the bricklinker's lol.

   Would look nice with a starfield background.

   light and heavy turbolaser batteries litter the lower areas of the hull.

   Each engine contains about 150 pieces. I tried to make them look as close to the real ones as possible, I think its about as good as it can get at 913:1 scale.

   The engines will light up (without the help of the camera flash) when I place a mini-light inside the engines - pics coming soon.

   Minifigure-Scale shot. Annakins jedi starfighter would be the size of a 1x1 flat tile with respect to the ship. I figure I could cram 1000 legomen into the hollow interior if I tried LOL.

That's very Impressive! The amount of detail in it is amazing and 51 inches long is giant. My latest MOC only got up to 40 inches or so. If you get a chance, please take a look at it (www.mocpages.com/moc.php/255317).

Awesome piece of work! I totally agree with you that it would look nice in front of a starfield background. You may want to join this group: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/13655 It´s all about photo editing, so you can let this vision come true! Would be nice to see you there! ~Cheers, Marc

Nice work there! If you could make mini starfighters of the CIS and the Republic fighting each other around the destroyer, that would be cool! (Not saying that you have to or should do it). Great job!

if you watch the Space battle over Coruscant, you can see this ship getting blown away, with it's engines falling down to coruscant. Great job dude, this has to be one of my favorite ships.

This is truly awesome, I love that ship and you've captured the shape and size perfectly, you do see this in the film but not much, you see it plowing into another CIS ship and exploding, then Obi says "Flying is for droids". Anyway EXCELLENT work as usual, I can't wait to see more of your models, keep up the great work.
