BELLATOR CLASS STAR DESTROYER COMPLETED 1 by THE-WHITE-TIGER BELLATOR CLASS STAR DESTROYER COMPLETED 1 by THE-WHITE-TIGER
About 6 months ago I encountered Ansel Hsiao's BELLATOR CLASS STAR BATTLECRUISER.
I was enthralled. I knew I had to build it, even though I had never scratch built anything ever before and that I also have Chronic Pain and Fatigue syndrome. It did not matter. it took 6 seeks to get enough money together and plan out a strategy. Pretty much my plan was to I carve styrene until I got my Bellator.
I believe it has 4500-5000 individual pieces.
After 4 months and 500 or so hours I finished my Star destroyer model! I thought this was something impossible for me to do. I taught myself and did it 99% scratch made. I cut, sawed. shaped, carved, sanded then painted every bit from beginning to end. I used a layering of a light blue for base, then multiple greys and other colors for the ship tiles. Then I lightly dusted it with Tamiya lg Grey and Tamiya Silver Titanium. I am very very happy. I proved that despite whatever challenges lay before me that with enough patience and determination I can accomplish what I want! now I am going to go into a coma...goodnight...tell me when its March...

Holy Molly! I did my fair bit of modeling and I know how much time and effort it requires.

Epic creation. Truly fantastic!

Scratch built...the way true craftsmen roll.

Looks fantastic man...would probably go a little bit heavier on your darker tones to really make it lifelike.

No, I disagree, I was very picky on the colour spectrum. It took me a dozen mixes to get it right

There are mistakes I had to live with during it's construction, However I am very happy with what I had accomplished. The new ship will be even better :)

Yeah, thats always the way it goes on creative endeavors... nobody gets to see all the blood, sweat and tears that get poured into something so awesome... just the finished product. Yeah, I was looking at your latest 'baby' today = wow, it's as amazing as it is massive! (I'm sure you'll be working up to life-size replicas in no time!) Oh, and I've added you to my watchlist so I can oversee it's construction like the Emperor! :D

It had become Canon...I think. I know the BELLATOR was accepted into novels. The ASSERTOR not to sure.
this Man is the creator, designer of the ASSERTOR. Ansel Hsiao.

You deserve more thanks and praise than I can give you. I've never worked on Star Destroyer models before but right now I'm working on my mando armor and it is HARD

I am an artist, just like yourself. Your wonderful words give me joy, yet feel praise and love for yourself as well. We are lovers of art, in whatever form we use.
We are creators. Love thyself. Love the world. :)
It is what I do to see the beauty in all of us. (especially in trying times )

After the Assertor is done I could do a commission, yet with time, material and detail required...it would not be cheap. It takes around 500 hours minimum to build.
if I simply charged 5$ an hour you would be looking at $2500, not including material.

Ya I understand. In honesty I will never sell it. To be blunt I would only consider 7500$ (I know that is a lot lot) You need to understand really how much work went into this bloody thing.
