So Fractal when it come to fleet commanders and their battle tactics what is your thoughts on Thrawn and his tactics both in canon and legends?

To have this model as a physical chamber piece… Although the ‘manly chin’ still has to grow on me a bit, the rest is, as always, A+++ excellent.

Looks like you went with the Rebels variant of the Imperial I-class, with the octuple turrets for the main armament instead of the bulky dual turrets on the ship from A New Hope and Rogue One.

Octaple barbette is the signature main armaments for the Imperial II variant

So Fractal about the ventral triple heavy turbolasers I did expect 4 of them to be there 2 at the bow tip and 2 at the front of the main hanger bay but I didn’t expect 2 more at the back of the main hanger bay and I don’t remember them being there in ANW and Rogue One maybe I didn’t look hard enough?

Also can those triple heavies do the full 360 and point at any direction?

Seems like the only major protrusions in those ventral triples’ visual field would be each other & the reactor bulb, and anything that’s close enough to exploit those would either be a kamikaze or co-piloted by Chewbacca.

Is there any way you could upload it with a green background for keying? I would give you credit in any films I use it in.

This is sweet! I like the shots fact ng the shadow as the interior lighting gives the ship a feeling that it’s alive! Got to ask, are those panel detail on the hull actual modeling that adds to the 7 million poly count or some really good textures?

Hey I’m new to this website and I just had a few questions about some of the vehicles.

What is the amount of crew found in the A7 tank ?.
And is the rear hatch used to transport troops ?.

Also in the LAAT/i do the doors on the sides open up and down or sideways ?.

Thanks for your help I found this art very well done and interesting keep up the great work !.

Go to wookipedia….

Can’t speak as to the A7 questions, but if it helps the LAAT/i’s doors are as follows.

The ‘doors next to the ball turrets are typically (though not always) depicted as sliding doors similar to those on a garage or bandit barrier. The primary troop bay doors sorta pop out a touch then slide back if the depictions in the Clone Wars TV show (which is canon) are anything to go by. That just leaves the rear door which lowers to act as a ramp.

Hope that helps.

Sorry I meant the LAAV/i not the laat.

This is amazing!!! Worth the almost religious daily routine of checking this website constantly for an update or the final release.

I check twice a day, I’m that addicted/devoted. I keep holding out hope for a Neb-B

You know… The site does have an RSS feed that gives alerts for all the updates. Saves a lot of time checking AND saves some small amount of bandwidth for our host.

Any chance you’ll upload the model for this like you did for your first Imperator-class Star Destroyer? 😀

Alejandro
Guest

Does someone know if he sells these models?

PhantomFury

He just made a post about commissioned work….

Impressing work to realize such a model! Your working processes must have been very well organized and streamlined for this task. If I’d start a model this size and detail it would surely end in utter chaos.

Alejandro

How does your website work actually? Can we buy the models or are they only “personal” ?
If you could, I’d really love to buy this

If you told me that the first image was an ILM model for Rogue One right before the Devastator started firing on the Rebels, I’d believe you.

Phenomenal work as usual. I heartily await a Tector modification.

So I counted the heavy turbolasers that the new Imperator have and quite funnily it is 99 heavy turbolasers. (8 of them being the 70 teraton caliber while the rest is 40 teraton caliber)

What’s her name? Please tell me you’ve named her…

Cdr. Rajh
Guest

I don’t know if he has or hasn’t named her, but I would call her the Imperial Star Destroyer; Fractalizer.

Sounds like a ISD name + its a pretty cool name + pays respect to her modeler

For some reason ‘Provocateur’ is stuck in my frontal lobe.

PhantomFury

Annihilator comes to mind

gorkmalork

Good name, though it seems more apropos for one of Fractal’s battlecruiser designs.

Well it is finally done and you were right it is the best CGI star destroyer.
So what next? (apart from more 4K renders)

OK maybe I shouldn’t have ask you what next after this. Because since you have work hard on the redux you most likely taking a break for a while.

Well done! 👍

Awesome model. Is there a specific reason that you choose to put 2 AA turrets only on the one left part of the command tower front? It looks a little bit illogical to be honest.
