Crashed imperial star destroyer
This diorama shows a crashed imperial star destroyer.
I’ve tried to show a story with this diorama. The ship has taken heavy damage to its bridge causing it to crash land on a fairly hospitable planet. The diorama is shown a number of years after this crash and small settlements and farming are now present around the old wreck.
The kit is the old AMT kit which I have had lying around for literally decades. This kit must be pushing 40 years old and is not particularly accurate. I removed most of the raised surface detail and added Details with plastic card. The internal damaged structure and the base are all scratch built. Painting is with Tamiya acrylics and weathering used a number of MIG was he’s and pigments.
The approximate scale here is 1mm = 4 meters which makes the trees between 20 and 30m tall.
This is not meant to be a super accurate recreation of a star destroyer (that would have taken far longer with this kit) but rather just a fun and cheap project using an old kit.
