Death Star Model From Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018 in Japan
|About||1 week ago|
Slower you slut!
That is awesome
That is incredibly cool, but the thing is the size of a small moon; there'd be way more floors than that. Still an amazing model.
That’s no moon
It's a great place until some asshole farm boy shoots an exhaust port!
Now that I see the size of each floor, it makes the death star feel smaller...
Beta model obviously lol
Somebody get that soccer ball some antibiotics!
Maybe just high ceilings?
So how many story is that metal meat ball?!!
The hands of a Surgeon God, that one has.
How big does a small moon have to be? From my rough count theres about 50floors there = around 200m dia
I was gunna say those floors were like 4 miles high
Canonically Death Star II is 200km in diameter.
It matches up with the depiction in the movie, where the windows on the completed sections appear denser than the incomplete levels. (1/3)
My best guess at an explanation would be that some floors are more structurally integral than others so those are constructed first? (2/3)
Like when you get a flatpack bookshelf and there's that middle shelf that's permanent and can't be adjusted. (3/3)
32,000 floors if its 160km in diameter .. 5m high floors
Deathstar 1 is 160km and 2 around 900km
My guess is the visible floors are the more structural ones and additional floors would be built between them. Windows on the (1/2)
completed sections are more vertically dense than the incomplete sections' floors (as depicted in-movie) (2/2)
That's no moon
That's no moon!
Holy fork that’s cool!
Maybe they're equivalent to bulkheads? Major structures put in before the less structurally critical floors and walls are added?
Shizuoka is where my family is from. You amaze me daily distraction/cat app
It looks unfinished.
Needs more greebles.
Aaaand now I need one.
According to wiki, Dstar had 84 levels, each split into 257 "sublevels". So 5 meters between floor\ceiling. Imagine trying to decorate that.
which freaking way does the artificial gravity pull?
That's no moon. That's a space station.
I wanna turn it into an ant farm so bad
Of course this is Japan. That’s that guy’s method of avoiding life.
i8ts also in the vacuum of space, i dont think it would float that well with so many holes
Well.. .technically that'd be the second death star, so the person destroying it would be a smooth black guy :v
Ok. I thought those were left open to show more detail.
Nope, the second death star wasn't even finished by the time the rebels blew it to kingdom come... .again...
When you think about the need for internal logistics it would make sense that each floor is like 1km tall. Then looking at it makes sense.
Oooo baby, is that the Yamato in the background?! <3
I’m most displeased with the apparent lack of progress.
I guess that's why they skipped the railings ;)
Let people enjoy things
Cutaway models are open with straight lines to make a cleaner view
So is gravity reversed on the lower half or is the generator stuck to the bottom?
Higher resolution gif though
Always bugged me that the decks stacked, but thr towers wer perpendicular to the center of gravity.
Actually if I remember correctly like 80% of the space inside the thing was dedicated to the centroid of the mechanism or whatever
don't forget Wedge!
and Wedge, yes :v but Lando fired the killshot.
What is this?! A space station for ants?! *knocks off the table*
Did you not pay attention in A New Hope?? Storm troopers are extremely tall.
that's not the moon
Is this Death Star or Death Star II?
Never forgive, never forget.
Need room to fly around massive cargo ships inside the ship itself.
The other post of this on FP was an hour before you, so you get the downvote.
can i has
That thing looks like it'll be a pain in the ass to dust, but I really want one.
Looks more like some sort of small moon.
Fiberoptics too?! *swoon*
And in the movie everything is somehow within a 5 minutes walk/elevator ride
Its fully operational
I've seen the real deal that was used for Return of the Jedi - your eyes go crazy with the details.
Trench run would be like 5 seconds
This is higher resolution, shut your face. Reposts of higher quality are fine.
The extremely off scale bothers me more at this resolution.
I don't even like star wars (except KOTOR, fuckin fight me) and that's fucking awesome as fuck, yo
Wouldn't they be walls since it's like a planet?
