Sometimes bigger IS better!

Lego Imperial Star Destroyer

When I first saw this picture, I thought it was simply a nice render of an Imperial Star Destroyer. But going through the other pictures quickly revealed a brilliant MOC. This creation is approximately 2 metres long, weighs about 50kg and was made by flickr user Jerac.

Remarkably, he built this with a SNOT technique instead of creating a shell out of plates like in the official Lego model 10030 or its derivates. That not only creates a studfree surface, but also gives it a very clean and smooth look that makes you look twice before you identfy it as Lego. The interior is built with a construction of Technic bricks that creates a very clever skeleton to hold everything together. And as if all this isn’t enough, some lighting has been applied to several areas.

On his flickr stream you can find a lot of interesting WiP pictures and some details about the design process of this monster. Be sure to check it out. This UCS ISD is worth more than just a look or two. Behold the awesomeness and also check out Jerac’s other great MOCs.
