niiiiice, Izzy we need to get you in touch with someone who can use this and the 3.75 version that knows how to cast and injection mold your 3D sculpts. This way you could pump out some for sale.. to me.. .i need like 4-6... *coughs*

But seriously you should look into it because these are truely works of art, well done sir.

Open to ideas.  Talked with a few people but they either told me I had to tone down the details or it would be expensive because I have way to many parts to cast (some would be almost impossible to do - like the rear fin with all the spirals).

I agree just over the top awesome. Looks perfect to me. Off to share.

I think you should just go ahead and make a full 6" Version of the Death Star Playset now! ;D

moving along.  Did some priming and added some extra details that I couldn't print.

What a great project. The quality of the 3D print and the detailing is amazing.
I can't wait to see the finished station.

Excellent work

Update on my build.  I'm using a Black Series Death Star Commander with a Gunner Helmet that I designed and printed.  Still waiting on two more figures.  I gave this a 1st coat.  still needs the hoses, more paint and weathering to be finished.  This is where i'm at:

The whole thing isn't glued together yet.  Once I get it to where I like it, then I'll glue it.

I mean the custom Death Star Gunner is amazing for itself, but the gunner station is just stunning -  the detail is phenomenal! Absolutely great project! Did you design all digital-shapes by yourself or did you print a template?

Hey Philipp,

   Yes, I designed the entire Gunner Station and the Helmet in 3D.  Made the STL file and printed it. Thanks

When I first saw the pic of the gun I didnt realise it was 3d printed, I thought you found a toy gun and added greeblies but the print looks great.

This is one of the neatest projects I have seen in awhile. I really like your progress. I am sitting here on pins and needles wondering if you would ever try to recreate the entire playset in 6" scale?

I also couldn't imagine how many of these you could sell in both 6" and 3.75" format.
