A truly amazing recreation of the infamous Death Star. Hard to believe, the photo below is not from the Star Wars movie, but rather a photo of the finished scratch built model embedded with fiber optic filament that was built by Vincent, one of our customers from Spain.
Vincent brought his phenomenal creation to our attention after he posted photos (along with a link to our site) on a model building forum that he subscribes to. Here are a few photos from the various stages of construction:
For this build, Vincent used our 1.5mm Single Strand Fiber Optic Filament.
For many more photos and additional insights into his amazing build, you can Click Here to visit the actual model building forum that features this project. While the forum in in Spanish, some of the various website translators do a respectable job converting the text, however it’s not necessary as the photo’s presented do an admirable job of outlining the construction. ~ “A photo is worth a thousand words!”
