Garry King – Star Wars – Lego – OVER 106″ (1:592.5) Star Destroyer!

NEVER BEFORE IN TASMANIA HAS THERE BEEN A STAR DESTROYER OF THIS SIZE AND SCALE BUILT FROM LEGO ELEMENTS.

SCALE 1:592.5

AS A PRIVATELY BUILT AND OWNED AND NON-COMMERCIAL STAR DESTROYER. IT IS CURRENTLY THE LARGEST KNOWN ON THIS PLANET AS FAR AS I COULD FIND ON THE INTERNET AS OF THE TIME OF COMPLETION.

WE ALL KNOW STAR WARS AND THIS ICONIC MODELS NONE MORE SO THAN THE ISD. THIS IS NO EXCEPTION, JUST ANOTHER STAR DESTROYER….

SOME FACTS BEHIND THIS BUILD

THE BRIDGE SECTION I SAW ON THE INTERNET AS A L.D.D. ( LEGO DIGITAL DESIGN ) AND IT WAS SUPERIMPOSED ONTO A STUDIO MODEL OF A STAR DESTROYER, THAT SPARKED MY INTEREST.

SOMETIME LATER I SAW A 5 FOOT LEGO STAR DESTROYER WITH SOME VERY NICE TURBO LASER CANONS ON IT.

I TOOK A FEW IMAGES OF BOTH OFF THE INTERNET AND JUST BY LOOKING I MANAGED TO CONSTRUCT MY OWN REAL LEGO REPLICA.

THE BRIDGE DICTATED THE SIZE OF THE STAR DESTROYER AND MY LEGO ELEMENTS DICTATED THE SHAPE.

IT UNDERWENT MANY STRUCTURAL SHAPE TRIALS AND ‘5’ REBUILDS TO GET IT TO STAY INTACT AND LOOK RIGHT. IT IS UNDER GREAT STRESS SITTING ON ITS STAND SHOWING A VERY CLEAR CURVE ( BEND ) ALONG THE LENGTH OF THE VESSEL. MOST OF ALL IT HAD TO FIT IN MY VEHICLE FOR TRANSPORT TO HOPEFULLY GO ON DISPLAY THROUGH OUT 2021 AROUND TASMANIA.

IT IS FAR FROM PERFECT BUT IT CERTAINLY CONSUMED MANY 10’S OF THOUSAND PARTS.

SIZE OF THIS STAR DESTROYER

LENGTH X WIDTH X HEIGHT

2700MM X 1690MM X 880MM

106.29 INCHES X 64.56 INCHES X 34.64 INCHES

338 STUDS X 206 STUDS X 110 STUDS

TOOK 10 MONTHS TO CONSTRUCT, DECONSTRUCT AND RECONSTRUCT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

AN ESTIMATE OF ELEMENTS USED IS APPROXIMATELY 139,729,40 AN ACCURATE CAN BE DONE WHEN I DISMANTLE IT AT THE END OF 2021.

AROUND THE STAR DESTROYER THERE ARE SCENES FROM ROGUE ONE, A NEW HOPE, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK AND RETURN OF THE JEDI.`
