"YAZI" - Venator Class Star Destroyer       The BIG finale part 1
 
Ok so here is the big finale (wel part 1 of it at least)
Due to the fact that MSI asked if they could showcase the YAZI at the International CES 2016 in Las Vegas the whole time table changed.
I am very strict op planning, its the only way to get stuff done fast, but this was ridiculous. The call came in about a week before the cutting of the aluminum, hence the reason why Pascal and I worked untill 3 am to get it sorted.
I proved not to be the last day I was up untill late !
 
Here we go:
 
Started with the always nice smelling epoxy work on the tower


Then it was off to the dirty room for paint, got a nice anthracit paint. The pictures dont do it justice, its darker and less brown.


Quick test fitting



And finally the last of the about 300 holes!



With the holes done, it was time for the greeble basecoat.
The detail just popps out with this coat.



And a quick test fitting, sure looks good in aluminum



But thats not the plan. So gave it a healthy coat



And then a good black matte paintjob



With the black coat on I could finally start to epoxy the greebles onto the side hull



Meanwhile : That was the first box of 8 kg PLA, onto the next one!



Decision time, should i paint the greebles also in the anthracit coat?


So happy with the anthracit, it really has excellent licht action properties



I love doing test sessions lol



Houston we have a problem! That was the last of the 50 meters of fiberoptic cabling ...



Waiting for the fiber, I put myself to the next design challenge the motherboard tray and I/O backwall.



I just love waking up to fresh new custom parts



Ahh the joys of fiberoptic cabling. It wants to go in any way but the way you want it ..



But ... the force is strong ...



Poor mans glue clamp, well actually you can buy a lot of clamps for this grand 1200 watt powerhouse by Thermaltake!



Also installed the rest of the lighting for the tower.



Someone asked my what happened to my old build the USS EURISKO.
Well its standing next to my work pc acting as a side table lol



This looks just too cool not to share






Working 12 to 16 hours a day takes it toll ..




Installed the fans back into their housing. These are the original fans for the build 2 years ago. Try finding a decent 92mm fan these days ...



I discovered a neat trick while glueing the 3D printed PLA. You can cut into just one or 2 of the layers and bend it precisely



Me working the very last of the fibers, will be glad when this part is over ..



The hull needed a little old fashioned styrene love



I wish I still had my workshop, space runs out quick with my builds!



Me working the epoxy ..



Darth practising his one-liners ..



And there you have it, the result of the small ModMarathon ...

Post Project Carnage ..





And that was it for part 1 , stay tuned for part 2 and 3!

Have a good one!

So here is part II

I managed to get the hull painted two hours before the scheduled pickup for the CES.



Quick dry before the next layer. The weather was helping a lot!







Got something very special planned for the radgrills. 
3D printed red HDGlass radgrills!


The front in this picture is missing due to change in plans at the last minute. 





Love this picture, she looks so dark and grimey here !




I could not build the loop due to possible issues at customs. 







This must be one of my favorite views. Will look sweet with the loop installed.





And finally with the lights on !!











Had to dismantle all the hardware inside so again no issues at customs.



Made sure that it was very well strapped down and covered up ..



Bye bye baby!



And there you have it. From cradle to grave a complete log of how I built this first version!

Hope you enjoyed watching as much as I enjoyed building her!

On to the next one!

Regards

This build started for me about 2 years ago just after finishing the EURISKO.
I was looking to do another big ship build but after starting I soon realised I didnt have the skills or the tools to make it like I wanted to.
I dont want to rush or do a half assed job and so I parked the YAZI in storage for when someday I was better at building with aluminum.
So I studied and studied, researched materials, worked with aluminum, worked with CNC's and laser cutters for 2 years.

Excellent basic design!

Is the passion and the patience that characterizes the modders :biggthumbsup:

THANK YOU Facebook, Forum and IRL friends for giving me the energy to continue when times were low. Post by post I was recharged and reading your comments and remarks sparked of another round of creativity and design.
And last but not least I would like to dedicate this build to my lovely daughter Ize and wife Linda who struggling with their illnesses found the time to allow me to complete the YAZI after so many years.

But the YAZI adventure doesnt stop here !

As MSI USA has taken the YAZI MKI to their headquarters to put on display, i am already starting the work on the YAZI MKII
I build in iterations, design something, make it, doesnt look or feel right, throw it out and start again. 
So also with the YAZI. I have made so many small (and large) notes on how to make it better and I have already begun incorporating them into the designs. 

I will continue to keep posting my work here untill I have reached the YAZI MKIII and its the best I can make it . 
Hope to hear any comments or questions while I undertake this yourney that will probably take more then a year to complete !

The new parts for the YAZI MKII are already rolling of the printer !




Also MSI has contacted me if I wanted to do a new casemod also. The BATMAN v SUPERMAN casemod contest !
I got one of the SUPERMAN themes. You can check out the buildlog here :
