This is a awesome model. Can you do a 514 cruiser next.
Do you mean a Class 546 Cruiser? Moff Gideon’s ship?
Still remembering that one at Endor, and still debating whether that captain was a genius, madman, or both.
For those unaware, can you please reiterate the case here?
Which “one at Endor” are you referring to and from what source?
There’s a shot in Return of the Jedi where the Falcon is flying over the belly of a Star Destroyer, except it doesn’t have a hangar or a visible reactor bulge. This is where the idea of the Tector originally came from.
I meant overall…what story with the captain was he talking about at Endor.
I don’t think there really is a story there, just the fact that the Tector was flying upside-down relative to all the other nearby ships.
I assume the bridge has exactly the same position relative to the main hull as on the ISD, but the superstructure is taller?
Also, how does she compares to the ISD in the point-defense capabilities?
Please consider any my post as including part with praise, so I can avoid repeating myself)
Yes, Fractal explained in Discord how the bridge is the exact same dimensionally, but it appears shorter due to the added armored terrace. I would assume PD capability would be the same as an ISD I, but Fractal will have the definitive answer.
There’s two more PDCs on the extended terrace front.
