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
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.
Jabba’s Rancor Pit
I purchased a Rancor and couldn’t resist recreating the scene from Return of Jedi, when Luke Skywalker and a Gammorrean Guard are dropped into the pit and we come face to face with this monster.
SWTOR Sith Temple
After playing Star Wars The Old Republic an awful lot I wanted to build something that drew inspiration from the game. What else do you start with but a Sith Temple using blue LED’s to give a cold but ominous glow.
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.
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.
