MPC Frtl StarWars Star Destroyer verDC23

I finished this commissioned work of a StarWars Star Destroyer from MPC ( 1989 made kit ) a couple of weeks ago. The finished model looks deceivingly easy to do, but noooooo... most of the parts does not fit together well. The actual kit feels like resin with some warped parts, a missing part and a ton of gaps.

I had to craft the missing part and replicate those fine details. I also filled the gaps with styrene rods and strips and heated a few parts to force them to fit together. I may be spoiled with working with very well engineered Bandai kits that fits perfectly together, but working on this old kit is not so fun at all. As requested by my client, I also crafted a simple custom asteroid base as the clear transparent base looks so plain for display.

Painting the kit is a different story. I enjoyed painting the kit as it is quick and easy. Painted it with Vallejo paints and weathered this build with Vallejo pigments and washes. I wanted to weather it further but the ultra small scale of the kit would not allow it. Over weathering this scale would make it look like an old toy or simply make it look out of scale.

Anyways, hope you like this build. Thanks as always for dropping by! Until next post guys! Just enjoy the hobby! :)
