A Most Impressive LEGO Star Destroyer

A Most Impressive LEGO Star Destroyer

LEGO has offered Star Destroyer kits before, but none of them could add up to make this majestic replica created by Jerac. The builder constructed a massive model of the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Chimaera. It appeared in the Star Wars Expanded Universe as the flagship of Grand Admiral Thrawn’s fleet, and even though it was opposed to the New Republic and our heroes, I can still appreciate the magnificence of the spaceship.

Jerac’s replica of the Chimaera could be the biggest and most accurate LEGO Star Destroyer ever made. It’s not quite a fully operational battle station, but it does have extraordinary stats: it’s over 6.5 feet long, over 4 feet wide, and almost 2 feet tall. It weighs 110 pounds and was crafted from approximately 40,000 bricks. For comparison, a recent LEGO Star Destroyer kit only had 3,152 pieces.

Construction on the spaceship began on December 28, 2013 after over a month of designing the plans. Over $5,000 and five months later, Jerac has mostly completed the build. He had a deadline of June 1 to complete the project in order to display it at the LUG exhibition in Swarzewo (in Poland). His notes show he had the LEGO ship ready with only eight hours left to go. After the exhibit is over in three months, Jerac plans to improve his masterpiece. He wants to add internal lighting, reinforce the interior structure, and get professional photos taken.

Would you have the patience to build anything like this? Head to the comments and let us know about your coolest LEGO builds.

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  2. Thanks for your posting. Another item is that just being a photographer consists of not only trouble in taking award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in getting the best photographic camera suited to your requirements and most especially hardships in maintaining the standard of your camera. That is very correct and visible for those photographers that are directly into capturing the particular nature’s fascinating scenes : the mountains, the actual forests, the particular wild or even the seas. Visiting these exciting places surely requires a video camera that can surpass the wild’s unpleasant settings.

  3. One more thing I would like to talk about is that as opposed to trying to match all your online degree courses on days and nights that you finish off work (since the majority people are tired when they return), try to obtain most of your sessions on the week-ends and only one or two courses in weekdays, even if it means a little time off your weekend. This pays off because on the saturdays and sundays, you will be much more rested plus concentrated upon school work. Thanks for the different tips I have mastered from your blog.

    Wonderful work! That is the kind of information that are meant to be shared across the internet. Shame on the search engines for no longer positioning this post higher! Come on over and discuss with my web site . Thanks =)

  5. Also a thing to mention is that an online business administration program is designed for students to be able to without problems proceed to bachelor degree courses. The Ninety credit certification meets the lower bachelor diploma requirements so when you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you may have access to the modern technologies in this field. Some reasons why students want to be able to get their associate degree in business is because they may be interested in the field and want to find the general education necessary just before jumping right into a bachelor college diploma program. Thanks for the tips you really provide in your blog.

  6. There are some interesting deadlines on this article however I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There may be some validity however I will take maintain opinion till I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish extra! Added to FeedBurner as well

    I have realized that car insurance organizations know the automobiles which are vulnerable to accidents along with other risks. In addition they know what sort of cars are susceptible to higher risk and also the higher risk they may have the higher the premium charge. Understanding the simple basics regarding car insurance will let you choose the right kind of insurance policy that will take care of your family needs in case you get involved in an accident. Many thanks for sharing the actual ideas for your blog.

    WHAT IF – and this should be a real thing – someone built a model that scaled to the size of a lego figurine? This means that they would build the interior as well.

    As Lord Vader would say, “impressive”

    Your picture viewing sucks. Click a picture then go back to the previous page, scroll down, click on next pic and start all over. Stupidest picture viewing ever. Did you have the people at facebook set it up for you? I thought they were the knids of stupidity.

    This is insane. The only way anyone could top this is — life size.
    Who is up for the challenge?

  13. Skylordric says:

    Yeah, yeah. Let’s see him build of the Imperial SSD Vengeance!

    It’s because Jim Jefferies is right – these folks aren’t nerds, they’re hipsters who happen to like nerdy things.

  15. Love it! However, am I an internet idiot or are your images related to stories NOT set up as a gallery? I keep having to go back and select another image to view. Why?
