Here’s my 1/5000 Star Destroyer from Bandai. For the most part I’m pleased with the results. As with all of the other Bandai SWars kits, the detailing is very good but the model is small measuring 12″ in length when done. The lighting turned out well for the most part but after recording the final reveal for my video I realized that I need to go back and touch up more of those light leaks. At least they aren’t so obvious in regular room light. I didn’t use the lighting kit because I wanted the lights wired to a switch instead. Didn’t want to have to remove the upper decks every time I wanted to activate them. The model also comes with a Blockade Runner and Falcon that I’ve attached to the custom base I created. I also added a 3D printed plaque to the display base that I printed on my Elegoo Mars printer. Here are some pics and a link for the video if you’re interested.

I've been building models since I was age 10. I've kind of gone in and out of the hobby through the years because of schooling and career but now that I'm pretty well settled in, I've been building pretty regularly over the last 4-5 years. Although I've built some WWII ships and planes in the past, I now mainly build sci-fi ships. My favorite subjects have been Star Trek and Star Wars but also have built many from 60s-70s sci-fi TV. A couple of yrs ago I started a Youtube channel just to put in my 2 cents and give advice. Surprisingly it hit 1M in 2017 views and still growing. I enjoy scale modeling as it provides an escape from daily stresses and routines. It also has been a great way to stay in touch with my childhood memories and simpler times. I must add that I have met some really great people since becoming active online in the modeling community and I look forward to continue my contribution to the hobby.
