Hello guys, some new pics of my ISD on my website :

It's not finished though. I have to do the engine bells, add some details on the engine back, on the domes, build bracket to hold the upper hull and draw all the lines with a pencil ! But it will go to the exhibit as it is on the pics.

Hope you like !

Its utterly wonderous Monsieur Tox. I think you have also achieved a perfect scale as the details, small and large offset eachother perfectly.

Way to go sir.

INDEED!!! ;)

Julien... my friend... There seems to be no limit to the "shock factor" that I receive every time I look at an update of the beautiful piece you have created! :D

Are you still planning it to go on Exhibition?

As I told you in person, I feel honored to have seen this beastie in person and to have met you and your family. I knew then that your creative talents were going to shake the foundation of this hobby and artform.

Being that you are VERY wise to hold on to this wonderful creation in not selling it, it is your piece here that has inspired me to commission one like it! Your super-detailing is awe-inspiring indeed! Richard will be doing the project in '08.

That said, Julien, I recommend ALWAYS keeping that beastie. There may be many offers in the future, but your talents on it are clear and I believe it something you will treasure and value forever.

I look forward to viewing your next great endeavor! :D

BTW... nice site my friend! :D

Thanks guys :D

Yeah Kurt, I will be on exhibit from friday to monday. :D
I was very honored to meet you and your wife too and I was very glad you are the first to see my ISD in personn ! :D

Well I dont know if I will keep it lol My friend who works as modelmaker for the french industry told me a such model would cost about 60000 for a movie production. So... :D Since I have no money ^^ I dont know what to do lol :lol: Anyway I think it will be my last model (oh that was only my second ! :lol: ).
To be honest I plan to stop modelmaking at the end of this year !


Well I have a stand for my cam so I took pics of the lite bridge.
I played with the lightning to create shadows, I have to work more, but eh the pics are not blurry ! :lol:

:eek: :eek: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Julien!!!! You are one of the most natural talents I have ever met in this artform!! This should be only a beginning my friend. :)

I do understand about money situations, however, and respect your will to change things. It is just a shock that it is ending so quickly. This is indeed disturbing news. :(

I think I can say that most everyone would love to see you continue your fine work. Maybe you could continue your great pieces in your down time? :)

You are a GREAT artist Julien.... and a good friend. I will always wish you the best. :D

Yeah guys but I really need to get a job now lol I took a year off to build this ISD and the deal was to stop modelling once it's done ! And this thing ruined me lol ! :lol:
Of course Ill continue to do some models, but only commercial kits.

I have to save money and time cuz I want to marry my GF as soon as possible, she's only waiting that I get a job so... You understand my choice guys cuz I really love her ! ;)

PS : Well Ill do my best to get a job with a loooot of free time ! :D But hard to find :lol:

That or she Killed Him Real Good and made it look like an accident, claiming his insurance and belongings. Now that I think about it, didn't this model show up on eBay recently...? :confused:







Yess uh yokin', main! :D

Hey guyyyys :D

Thanks for the kind words ;)

Oops sorry I was meaning by next year, 2009 not 2008 hehe, no wedding yet :D

No, no that wasnt my model on ebay !

I took a break from star wars stuff but now Im ready to finish the ISD and to do other models ! :D

First thing to do, repaint the ISD. I went to the exhibit where the large SSD/ISD bridge was displayed and (I assume the color is the same than the 8 footer), is almost white... far more white than I thought... It becomes grayish once on pic but it's a very very very light gray. I was very surprised ! (even if I had already seen it 4 years ago hehe but I had just the pics I took and I didnt put any attention on the color of this model since I was not modelling star wars stuff at this time).
Now Im ready to start the SS 8 footer hehe.
