Posted on YT but I’ll do so here also. I was wondering if you have made a model of the ISD1 with its original armament (the dual turbolasers)? I can’t seem to find ISD1 ‘Imperator’ on your website, only the composite ship, which seems to have the port & starboard quad turbolasers & axial turbolasers of ISD1 but the main armament of ISD2.
I always much prefered the ISD 1 armament, both its more antiship looking main guns as well as its secondary heavy guns like the axials and quads. It looks like more like a ship that is designed to go against peer cruisers than the ISD2, which may be more to dominate smaller ships (considering its main guns are lighter looking & 8 barreled for greater fire-rate, and it doesn’t usually carry all of the heavy secondary guns unlike this composite you created).
Excellent work by the way. I love these high-detailed renders of SW vehicles. They are the best that I have seen.
Further confirmation that someone, somewhere should be paying our host for this beauty’s use in OT-era spinoff media.
