KORBANTH 38 Inch Super Star Destroyer “Executor” built by Tobias Richter

Originally shown here on Modeler Magic back on February 15, 2009… over 9 years ago, this model was built from the large Korbanth Model kit by artist and collector Tobias Richter of The Light Works. Tobias gave this piece exactly what it needed… the massive, and ominous spirit of the “Executor”!

Here is what Tobias had to say…

This is quite a big kit compared to the 30cm kit by Scale Solutions. Naturally, it has much more detail.

Thanks to a detailed description, the assembly was no problem. The few bits that got chipped off during transport were easily fixed.

I thought for a moment to light it, but even at this size the windows would have to be extremely small – which would result in thousands of fiber cable running through the tiny parts. It would also be almost impossible to integrate the fibers in the small skyscrapers at the top of the model. So, in the end I decided against it. My hats off to anyone who tries it…

A problem were the side trenches, which appear to be too high. I sanded them down a bit, to the point where it wouldn´t cause trouble with the rest of the assembly. It is still a bit high compared to the original.

As for painting, I used Tamiya Grey primer and for the base coat a mix of 1/3 blue (XF18) and 2/3 white, which should match the original color quite well. Slight panel shading was added, as well as some tiny white dots for windows.

The base was constructed using three sets of Triliance Death Star tiles, all in all around 80 tiles.”
