The ship’s holds, the gun turrets, the corridors etc. The work is gigantic and Im’ going to be pushed on my limits. I’ve already talked about […]

Imperial Star Destroyer (3) :

After talking about the optical fiber and the Arduino programming, last WIP for this build up : the Imperial Star Destroyer paint job. Two major challenges in this paint job : the model is single-coloured (in fact that’s not totally true but that’s the most common representation) and the colour is hard to define : […]

Imperial Star Destroyer (2) :

I’ve already talked about lighting up a model on Fantastic Modelers but never using optical fiber. Optical fiber in scale modeling allows […]
