Republic Star Destroyer

Here are some images of Revell's Venator Class Republic Star Destroyer.
I decided to put fiber optics into this model as I came across one of those old fiber optic Christmas Trees leaning against the dumpster outside. So I decided to strip it of all its fibery goodness.
I was never one to load up a model with lots of lights. I think it gives it a kind fake look to it. Besides with all those lights it looks too much like... well... a Christmas tree.
I also decided to paint this model in my own dark copper motif as opposed to the red example called out for in the instructions.

From Wikipedia"
Venator-class Star Destroyers, also known as "Republic attack cruisers", appear in Revenge of the Sith and in the Expanded Universe. The ship's design is meant to bridge the appearance of the Acclamator-class transports in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and the Imperial class in the original trilogy. While the ships first appear with a red and grey Republic color scheme, the Venator at the movie's end is gray and white; this lack of color signifies the Empire's rise to power.

I have this kit but still in the box, I also bought the Madma Lightning kit to light up it, I don't know what it will look like...!

Thanks Manchu - I'd like to see how that looks when it is finished.

From the front to the rear
The dorsal hangar door has a slight difference in angle of depression versus the section behind it right?
