Jerry Testa’s 37.5 Inch Star Destroyer

We are pleased to be welcome artist Jerry Testa to this Gallery. Showing first is his build of the Randy Cooper Star Destroyer… Fantastic!

 

This is the Star destroyer Avenger that is produced by Randy Cooper. The model is definitely not for the beginner. I did make my own interior frame out of 1/2 inch plywood to help support all that resin. It measures about 37” long, has close to a 1000 strands of fiber optics and 20 LED lights inside. I initially painted it black and then airbrushed 4 different shades of white and grey to help give it more dimension without having to do a black wash. The top super structure is removable and held on with magnets in case I need to get back inside. Panels where done with stencils made with frisket. The display stand was made from 1/2 inch clear acrylic for the supports, 1/2 inch MDF for the base and 1/8 inch mirrored acrylic on the bottom. It’s all powered by a 12 volt power supply. Hope you like it.

All the best!
Sincerely,

Jerry Testa
