I spent a lot of time trying to find an affordable set for my collection. I filled in the gaps and modified the design to use less expensive parts. The two most glaring examples of changes made to the original design are the changed hull design, and the use of alternative colors. You will also notice my design gets rid of pesky part which I believe is the single most expensive part in the original design. Within this MOC you will find a common theme in colors: Parts in yellow instructions can be substituted for for any color as they will not show through externally. In the parts list on the MOC these are listed as no color.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down.
Doing so will damage the plug and the connector. Start by disconnecting the two long roof sections that run along each side of the Star Destroyer Turn the ship around so we can access the back, then disconnect the centre jet section followed by the two side jet sections.
Take the centre jet section and follow the images below to disconnect sections so that we can disconnect the jets. Follow the below images to disassemble the jet section 4. Take a the left jet and then turn it over so we can access the back. Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread it down one of the bottom holes and then out to the right. Thread the Bit Light all the way through and then bend it slightly toward the centre in between the four holes.
Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans orange piece over the top. Take the right jet and then repeat the same process used for the left jet to install another White 30cm Bit Light to it.
Take the centre jet and install another White 30cm Bit Light the same way we did for the left and right jets. Reconnect the three jets together then group the three cables and thread them inside the space behind before reconnecting to the main jet section. Reconnect surrounding pieces which we removed back at step 2. Disconnect the left set of jets from the main section and then follow the images below to disassemble it.
Turn the below section over to access the back then install another White 30cm Bit Light the same way we did for the previous jets. Reconnect this piece back to the rest and then reconnect surrounding pieces. Take another White 30cm Bit Light and thread it through the centre hole all the way through. Slightly bend the Bit Light so that it is directly facing upward before pushing it down and reconnecting the trans orange plate over the top.
Important Note: Allow some excess cable inside the hole of the round brick for the technic bar to push through the back. Do not pull the cable all the way through to the end otherwise the cable may break when inserting back onto the technic bar. Turn the piece over and reconnect the dark grey round plate ensuring the cable is laid in between the studs.
Reconnect this piece by pushing it back onto the technic bar. Do this very carefully to ensure the cable does not break. Disconnect the right set of jets and then install another 2x White 30cm Bit Lights to it the same way we did for the left set of jets Step 8—9 Reconnect the right jets back to the main centre jet section.
We will now move onto installing lights to the left jet section. Take this section and disconnect and disassemble the jets as per below images. Install another 2x White 30cm Bit Lights to the remaining jets in this section following the same method used for the jets in step 9. Reconnect each jet section by pushing each one back onto the technic bar behind. Ensure the cables are laid in between studs.
Repeat previous steps 11—14 to install another 3x White 30cm Bit Lights to the jets on the right section. Reconnect the left and right jet sections and then pull out the three cables from each side at the front as per below Reconnect the main centre jet section and bring the cables out to the left side.
Take the seven cables from the centre jet section and connect them to an 8-Port Expansion Board. Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to the remaining port on the expansion board and the other end to one of the OUT ports on the Multi Effects Board side with 2 ports Tuck the expansion board and seven cables neatly inside the left side of the ship as per below Remove the top section that covers the control room area then disconnect the following sections along the left side.
Bring the three cables from the left jet section together and pull them up along the back across the control room. Reconnect sections we removed earlier over the top.
Turn the ship over to the right side and do the same for the cables from the right jet section. Take another 8-Port Expansion Board and connect all six cables to it three cables from each side jet section Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to a spare port on the expansion board. Turn the ship back around to the left side and then connect the other end of the 15cm connecting cable to the other OUT port on the Multi Effects Board. Place the battery pack on top of the ship and connect the battery pack cable to the IN port on the multi effects board.
Turn the battery pack ON to test all jet lights are working OK. Configure your desired effect as well as the speed of the effect by flicking the switch and turning the speed wheel. To configure this effect, flick the switch to the far left and turn the speed wheel all the way to the left as shown below. Once you have confirmed all is working OK and you are happy with your chosen effect, disconnect the battery pack cable and connect a 15cm Connecting Cable to the IN port instead.
Leave the other end of the cable disconnected for now. Remove the following sections along the left side again and neatly place all cables underneath before reconnecting the sections over the top. We will now install seven lights along each side of the ship. Starting toward the back, remove the following LEGO grill tile. Take a Blue 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing up, place it over the left stud as per below.
Install another Blue 30cm Bit Light to the next grill tile along the left side of the ship except this time, install the light to the stud on the left rather than in lieu of the grill plate. Hide the cable underneath the following tile ensuring the cable is laid in between studs. Repeat previous step to install another 5x Blue 30cm Bit Lights to the left side of the remaining grill plates along the side. Take the back three blue bit light cables as well as the other end of the 15cm connecting cable from the multi effects board Step 19 and connect them to the first few ports on a Port Expansion Board Take a 50cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the far left port on the port expansion board.
Bring the cable toward the top of the ship and then connect it to the end port of a new Port Expansion Board. Take the remaining four blue bit light cables toward the top of the ship and connect them to the Port Expansion Board near by. Turn the battery pack ON to test all the blue lights are working OK. They should be illuminated along with the back jet lights however, they should be static steady ON.
Turn the ship over to the other side and then follow steps 20—22 to install another 7x Blue 30cm Bit Lights along the right side of the ship. Ensure you hide all cables underneath each tile directly above.
Remove the following sections on the right side of the ship. Take the back three blue bit light cables and connect them to the Port Expansion Board near the control room area. Group the three cables together and secure them along the back side of the control room. Take the four remaining blue bit light cables toward the top right side of the ship and connect them to the next ports along on the port expansion board above.
Turn the ship back over to the left side and neaten up cables. Start by grouping together the four cables at the front of the ship two from each side.
Fold and twist them around each other several times so they all come together. Tuck the bunched up cables inside any of the spaces below. Take the next two cables along the each side and then fold and twist them together before tucking them into the spaces below. Tidy up excess cables inside the control room area by grouping them together, folding and twisting them around each other the same way we did for the cables toward the front of the ship. Connect the other end of the connecting cable to a spare port on the port expansion board in the control room area.
We will now install some lights to the top of the star destroyer. First disconnect the following two dark grey round plates from the top toward the back of the ship. Disconnect the section underneath as per below Take a Cool White 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing toward the control room, place it over the left stud where we disconnected one of the dark grey round plates from.
Install another Cool White 30cm Bit Light to the right stud where we removed the other dark grey round plate from. Lay the two cables down in between studs before reconnecting the section we removed earlier Bring both cables down the left side of the star destroyer then remove the following side sections again Connect the two cables to a 6-Port Expansion Board.
Take another 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the far end port on the expansion board. Connect the other end of the 15cm connecting cable to a spare port on the Port Expansion Board in the control room area. Lay all cables neatly along the back side of the control room right side and then reconnect sections we removed earlier over the top. Turn the battery pack ON to ensure all lights are working OK. We will now install lights to the back of the small star destroyer.
Take this section and turn it over to the back. Flip it over to allow us to disconnect and disassemble the following pieces. Take a Cool White 30cm Bit Light and place it over the top of one of the round plates. Secure it in place by reconnecting a trans light blue plate over the top. Take another Cool White 30cm Bit Light and place it over the top of the tile with stud. Install the remaining Cool White 30cm Bit Light to the other dark grey round plate and secure it in place by reconnecting the trans light blue plate over the top Group the three cables together close to the ship and then twist and wind them together so that they come together.
Thread the cables in between the two trans clear bars and then pull the cable up all the way through. Turn the ship back over and then reconnect it to the left side of the super star destroyer toward the middle. Bring the cables over toward the back and then connect all three to the 6-port Expansion Board from step Turn the battery pack ON to verify all lights are working OK Neaten up cables underneath before securely reconnecting the roof back on top of the control room.
We will now install strip lights along each roof section of the ship. First take the left roof section and then turn it over so we can access underneath.
