Model Kit Obsession of the Week - Revell Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer (1/2700)16 Apr 2018
The Imperial Star Destroyer is one of the most imposing and iconic starships in the Star Wars universe. First appearing in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, it lumbered onto movie theatre screens as it chased down Tantive IV during the opening of the movie.
After Chancellor Palpatine rose to power, the wedge-shaped Star Destroyers were the backbone of the fleet, one reason being their massive firepower, and they were present in almost every battleground. These long-distance spacecraft were capable of travelling through hyperspace and carried the dreaded TIE fighters, yet were also deployed in system-wide invasions.
