Dirk Karsten has entered his Republic Star Destroyer in the SciFiantasy 2018 MOTY Online contest. Here is what he has to say about his build.

This is the older Revell Kit. The scale is round about 1:2700. I built this together with my little son years ago straight OOB without coloring or anything. This year I used it as test build to check my airbrush and other skills. I wanted a battleship, plain and simple not much coloring, a decent “used” look. Tamiya colors, Starship wash and Streaking fluids from AMMO MIG were used. The stand is brass and stained wood which were polished then. As my son is not “little” anymore the Venator is now at his home 🙂

I have been building models since I was about 8 years old. As many of us did, I picked up the hobby from my father. Without him, I would probably have never known this great hobby. I like to build everything from Military Models to Starships. Right now my passion is to build and light science fiction models.
