I just finished the AMT Star Destroyer. Picked it up for $15 on ebay and I must say it was a fun build. If you have not built one, everything you have heard is true, the kit stinks. Its in the shape of a SD but that is about all that is correct. Detail and fit are horrible. A lot of glue, putty, dry fitting, and cutting to get this old girl shipshape. Built OOB, painted with Testors enamel, as always.

In spite of itself I love that a Star Destroyer is in the collection. Feel free to comment or critique.

Its a crud kit but I still love having an SD on the self. I think with a lot of TLC it builds up just fine.

Thanks for the look and the comments.

Well for 15 bucks you cant go wrong. I have seen these on Ebay but never been able to pull the trigger. You did a great job on it though!!!

I've seen them sell for almost 100 bucks. I would be crazy pissed-off to pay that kind of money for such a lame kit. But 15, now that I couldn't pass up.

Thanks for looking.
