Venator-class Star Destroyer
Here is my LDD model of the Star Wars Venator. Its my first attempt at a large model in LDD and revealed many limitations of the digital lego world. My computer doesn't like LDD models over 15k pieces, so designing and completing it was a difficult task!
About this creation

The design of the Venator is much more complex than the Imperial Star Destroyer from the original trilogy.


The triangular shape is still evident but not as pervasive.


The configuration of the engines is intriguing as well.


The dual command towers are an interesting design feature.


There were a lot of plates used for the hull!


The design of the underside is as complex as the top.


There are several different pictures of the Venator I used for reference. In the end, I combined the most interesting elements and forged my own design.


In the end, this version of the Venator is recognizable but also a bit unique.


The side hangers are fully modelled.


Here, you can see the top main hanger doors open. The interior hanger is fully modelled.


A CR90 corvette is approaching the side hanger while a c70 Charger is in the main hanger.


I enjoy the red paint scheme.


A c70 Charger is in the main hanger.


Overall, it was a fun model to work on and consumed far more of my time than I thought. No regrets though.


Here is my Venator next to my Imperial-class Star Destroyer.

Quoting Commander Bricks I like it very much although I would be even more impressed if you didn't use LDD but it's still very good.
Thanks for your comments Commander and I appreciate your interest in my work. Sorry about the digital format but that's the only format I work in!

Quoting A SwordFish It appears as though the bridge is a bit too tall, it seems out of proportion with the rest of the ship. But otherwise, fantastic job. I respect all the time, hard work, and detailing you put into this design. Keep it up dude!

Quoting Luke V One of my favorite star wars ships!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU ACTUALLY FINISHED THIS ON LDD... THAT TAKES SO MUCH TIME!!! Great job!!! And the level of detail is fantastic!!!
Thanks for your comments Luke. The Venator has been a favourite of mine since the first time I saw it. The model was my first attempt at a large-scale lego model in LDD and took a while to complete. I took the lessons learned and applied it to my Imperial Star Destroyer. I hope to go back sometime and fix a few of my Venator's imperfections. I'm glad you enjoyed this model.

Quoting Alex Sonny Astounding! The scale of it is ridicolous, and details are very well made! Oh, and a hint: it's not LDD disliking large models, it's the fact you're running out of RAM :)
Thanks for your comments Alex. This is a pretty big model but it needed to be in order to get the right kind of detail.
