    It may not look like much, but this one from SF Paper Craft Gallery is pretty nice -

    The amount of detail can be enhanced by double or triple layering the "Greebles" and body panels.

    My build is at Index of /New/-Models/-StarDestroyer
    Maybe my pics can help you figure out how to make it even more detailed

    There is a simple Pepakura model of an "Interdictor" (?) Star Destroyer at Erick's Paper Models. Without those "bulges" the overall look seems to be quite similar to the Super Star Destroyer. Maybe you can adapt this.

    EDIT: Ooops, missed the previous post somehow. Of course, this is a better one...

    Not a bad model - much tidier than some of the game rips that are knocking around.

    Cheers Panzer.

    That SSD on the swpm.ic.cz page is probably not what you're looking for. The model you want would probably look something like this:

    The paper model cited looks like this:

    It's not the designer's fault, he just went with what he had to work with. The only way you're going to get a very detailed Destroyer is to scratchbuild one. The current paper model would be a good starting point.

    Wow! Cheers MFH.

    Something more akin to the top model would be pretty cool, though maybe a little smaller (maybe 1/3 of that size).

    Found a reasonably good translation below at a level of detail and scale that might work:

    I wonder if there's a slightly better 3D model out there that could be tailored....

    This would be a great subject for a large scale papermodel.
