This MOC won the Best Spaceship at BrickCon in Seattle in 2006. Based loosely on the UCS ISD (Imperial Star Destroyer) it rivals that Model, and is actually 4 inches longer.
Completed over 4 months of work, I usually never build with pre-determined instructions or computer models prior to putting bricks together.

The final MOC weighed in over 50 lbs. As for a piece count, I never really took one.

Probably one of the nicer views, which showed a lot of the greebling, since I didn't light the model from the inside. The side panels were the main ones to try to get in. I have an ISD in the box, but never put the whole thing together. So I was going from more trial and error to get this to look somewhat like the RAC in Episode 3

In terms of scale, I think the engine nacelles are a little small for the actual MOC, perhaps a tad bigger would have been better. Or even more realistic - to make the main body smaller. Well, of course, that was already complete...sooo...Oh well. Overall the look was achieved.

This is a good shot for scale. The Clone Turbo Tank in the corner is the actual set 7261. The blue structure was built to handle the MOC from the lower cargo bay - which turned out was the best balance point. The scaffolding later collapsed due to weight.

The MOC was later determined to have a "Swoosh Factor" of 1. As to dismantle the project this was dropped from 7ft. onto the living room floor. While the "SF" turned out to be a little disappointing, the "Crash Factor" was a spectacular rating of 9.4!
