The destruction of Maz Kanata’s castle

The destruction of Maz Kanata’s castle

This project I fancied building a ruin but it was a toss up between doing another SWTOR dio or from The Force Awakens.  I always liked the scene where Kylo Ren walks through the doorway of ruins of Maz Kanatas watering hole.  

With this diorama I also repainted Phasma, adding a chrome layer to enhance the look of her armour.  I wanted to get this as close to the film

as possible.

 

 

Jedi Ghosts

Jedi Spirits

After completing the last couple of rather large diorama’s, I wanted to do a smaller and more intimate piece while combining technique’s that I had used in the other sets.  Having recently purchased the Jedi Spirits action figure, these were the perfect figures to create this set with.  

 

Been situated in the Ewok village, I had to have a couple of Ewoks in the set.

 

Han in Carbonite

Han in Carbonite

I always wanted to create Jabba’s Palace but due to the size of it and the house I live in, it just would not fit.  Instead I built Jabba’s greatest prize, Han in Carbonite.  For my second diorama, I wanted to push myself further than just building boxes and covering them with decals.  With this diorama I used fibre optics within the build.

 

 

Death Star

Death Star

While trying to decide where to start in the world of diorama’s, I decided the best place to start would be in the Star War Universe.  With so many possibilities to choose from, I settled on the Death Star from New Hope.  What started as one corridor, quickly exploded into what you see before you.
