Scratchbuilt Victory -class Star Destroyer

Victory-class Star Destroyer is another vessel not seen in movies. It is predecessor of Imperial Star Destroyer, is 900 m long and has seen it's best years during the old republic. Although it's too slow to be too effective in ship-to-ship -combat, it still excels in one area: It is still the largest ship able to enter a planet's atmosphere. Combined with it's heavy weaponry, this attribute makes it excellent ground assault craft.

Tutorial: Burning starship wrecks (and how to model fire!)

Burning star destroyer, dreadnought and freighter

Most frequent question I get asked on gaming sites is about how I have created fire and smoke. Now I'm releasing a tutoral about this topic - while it's actually about creating starship wrecks, it will teach you how to model fire. Another page (coming soon) will show you applications of this technique.

Very simple modelling project: Death Star

Death Star and destroyers

How easy can a modelling project be? Death Star must be the easiest one I've done. Cutting the place for the super laser was perhaps the hardest part, after that I applied dyed filler-paste to the model, carved the center line and painted it. Not the most accurate model but works.
