Title: Zvezda Star Destroyer
Post by: TK Iain on October 22, 2017, 01:48:37 pm
I have the big girl finished up at last and ready to go to the charity auction next month.

I have been told that the starting bid is sitting at 650GBP at this time as folk have already started bidding on her. The video might be a bit "strange" to listen to but I am describing it for the folk in the UK Garrison (just in case you were wondering). The build thread has been almost all over on the UKG forums and when I first started I named the WIP thread "Our Lady of the Empire" and the name stuck.

Anyhoo! On with the show and I hope you like what you see.

And as is my tradition the usual end of build video to show her off.

Awesome job on this build Iain.....   I personally prefer the photos which are lit but still have enough light in the room to display that paint job as well.

I don't imagine you want to work with any FO for a long time to come!!!    ;b

Well done, Iain!  You really outdid yourself with this incredible build.  It sounds like auctioning off this beauty is going to raise a tidy sum for a great charity -- and rightfully so!  Congratulations!

Gorgeous.

Edit: Where did you get the name plaque made?

I'm going to try to light up my Revell Build&Play too, but of course it won't be as nice as your build. Very beautiful. I've built models as gifts before, but something that big would be a bit too difficult for me to part with. This was a labor of love.

Thanks guys.

It really did turn into a trial by patience but I am more than happy with the end result.

Lestatdelc - I will see what pics I have and post them up but the kits away in storage just now, out of harms way 'til next month but I'll see what I can do.

Modelerdave - The plague was made by a fellow member of the UK Garrison just for this build.

I haven't heard that one in years.

And thanks to everyone for your kind comments. This time next week she'll be the property of a new owner and I'll let you know the final auction price.

Will you ever build a new one for yourself?

I do plan on building my own one day Phil. But not for awhile so it stays in the stash for now. :)

Just got home from Birmingham after transporting the model to the UKG charity ball/auction and totally gobsmacked.

She sold for 1400GBP.

Wow, Iain, that's roughly $1850 USD for your charity!  What great news!  You're build was so totally awesome that it's not a surprise it raised such an incredible bid for UKG.  Take a bow, Iain!  Well done.
