    Hi all

    As promised in a previous thread, below are the plans and specifications for you to build your own star destroyer.

    1. Although I haven't provided any detailed instructions, don't be discouraged... by using your head and manipulating the specs in photoshop (or another graphics program) you can achieve good results.

    2. All pieces are in exact proportion, so you shouldn't need to change much (well maybe a little here and there...).

    3. For the main hull, just print out the hull piece four times.

    4. Print each page out on sticky paper (easily obtainable from your local news agency) and stick it onto cardboard pieces (approximately 1 mm thick, or less).

    5. Enjoy gallivanting around your bedroom with your very own star destroyer!

    Below are some more pictures, unfortunately they aren't all that clear... stupid 3meg pixel phone camera...

    Wow this is amazing. Is this done with just regular modeling clay, or can it be done it anything that can be shaped like plastic, metal, wood?

    Thank you for your compliment! Actually, its all just made out of cardboard. I simply printed out those blue print sheets onto sticky paper and stuck it onto cardboard. I then cut the cardboard pieces, then stuck it all together using PVC glue. It was fairly easy once I was able to find all the appropriate images of the star destroyer hull pieces, then warped them to the appropriate size and angle on photoshop.

    Wow thats really cool! Thank you for sharing this, once I get some time I'll attempt doing it. However, I'm one of the only girls terribly bad with arts and crafts :p
