Class II Imperial Star Destroyer "Avenger"

Class II Imperial Star Destroyer "Avenger"
After over a year of planning and building, the Kuat Drive Yards is unveiling the Class II Imperial Star Destroyer “Avenger”. I spent a lot of time researching books and pictures with the intent to accurately build one of the most iconic starships in the Star Wars Universe. My main goal was to build a movie cannon Star Destroyer, with the addition of a detailed mini-figure interior. All of the work is from my own creation/design, but there were some small areas that I used from other Lego models. My main inspiration came from seeing a builder take the 10030 UCS Star Destroyer and put an interior in it, I wanted to take that and do it on a much bigger and better scale. I also have to give credit to Erik Varszegi, Anio, Brickplumber, Cavegod, Rook and other builders whose large builds also inspired me to build the Avenger. Also a lot of credit goes to my wife for supporting me through the build. Thanks goes out to the members of the Greater Florida Lego Users Group (GFLUG) who let me show the Avenger for all four days of Star Wars Celebration VI. The Avenger was well received and was given a lot of awesome feedback from the attending fans. It was even given two thumbs up by Erik Varszegi, who was quite impressed with the Avenger. So without further adieu, I present the Class II Imperial Star Destroyer “Avenger” and please leave me any constructive criticism.

Crew: 11 Officers; 4 TIE Pilots; 44 Stormtroopers; 12 Scouttroopers

Quit a stunning build. Very impressed with the amount of interior space that you were able to achieve. I especially like the tie fighters on the rack. The outside is spectacular. Great job.

Holy crap this is spectacular. I was already impressed with the exterior of the model, then I find it has an interior? Kudos to you, my good sir.

Wow this is really amazing.

Great job! I love the exterior detail, but the fact that you created an interior in addition is just pure icing.

How stable is it with the interior? Just curiouser, though I'm sure it's not swooshable.

It's actually quite stable. It's too heavy for swooshing though. Just to give you an idea, if I take the super structure off, I can pick it up just grasping the top middle support with both hands.
