"YAZI" - Venator Class Star Destroyer


Legend has it that the dragon has nine sons.
Each of whom inherited at least one great talent from their father the great Imperial Dragon.

The 7th son YAZI is the most warlike and fearsome. 
With his perpetual wrathful glare, four legs, long tail and long horns he strikes fear into the enemies hearts.
This is the dragon that signifies victory in battle and enhances the morale and strength of soldiers


Carrying Yazi into battle will assist any warrior's triumph over enemy forces!

"YAZI" - Venator Class Star Destroyer        UPDATE 001



                                             

Hi, my name is ASPHIAX also know as Sander van der Velden and I am from the Netherlands.
I have been modding since 2011 but involved some way or other with computers since 1992 when I got my first MSX computer.
You may have seen some of my mods come by like the IMPERIAL AT-AT and the USS EURISKO - Intrepid Mark II Class

I am a true SCIFI nut and so I usually build my mods around that theme but... it must also have a good story
So one day I came across the legend of the Imperial Dragon and his nine sons and instantly knew this was to be the background story for the Venator.

For me modding is about idea's that wont leave you alone. That moment when your modders eye catches something and you just have to build it.
So was it with the YAZI for me. After the AT-AT, the Venator class is my favorite Star Wars ship and I knew I had to build a gaming rig into it someday.

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.

And now thanks to my MSI and my sponsors I have the opportunity to build her!!!
Thanks ever so much for that!

Here are some of the 3D work I did for the build and some low spec renders

"YAZI" - Venator Class Star Destroyer        UPDATE 001 continued



The Beginning of a build for me is always sketches on paper. Just to see if the hardware blocks can be positioned in a way to augment the model, make it look better or bolder.
I do not want my builds to be a model with somewhere a pc stuffed inside, the pc has to be a part of the model.
So I drew and drew on a sunbed on a beach on holiday in Portugal.

"YAZI" - Venator Class Star Destroyer        UPDATE 001 continued



So I had bought myself a model version of the venator which I used to get the dimensions in order.
I always split my work into several iterations of the model as you will see. Each new version will have more complexity and detail.
Here is the work I did for getting to the aluminum stage ..



















[ ERROR: SPECIFIED ATTACHMENT MISSING ]

So now I have something made from Aluminum which somewhat resembles the main body!

"YAZI" - Venator Class Star Destroyer        UPDATE 001 continued



Lets start adding some fans to the main body and draw out some of its features .



Now to start the hard part. These pieces of aluminum needed to be folded to create the launchbay doors for the top hull.













Starting to look like something now!
