I was approached by a friend of mine, her son was participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and wanted to do a diorama for part of this award. Jack is a fan of my facebook page and wondered if I could work with him.
To begin with, I asked Jack what he would like to build and to what scale. After much deliberation, he settled for a Star Wars project to the scale of 3’75” figures. His next decision was what to base this on, what film, to his mothers displeasure Jack forced himself to go through each of the Star Wars films until he found his inspiration and settled on an idea. In the end he decided he wanted to build the Emperor’s throne room from Return of the Jedi. After the decision was made, materials need to be bought and skills had to be taught. Jack and I would meet up every week for an hour, in that time he would show me what he had done and how he could improve on it.
Throughout the weeks, he has created a wonderful diorama, invested in the figures to go with it and this is what he created. I am very proud of him for his accomplishment.
gallery of his journey from start to finish, I hope you enjoy viewing them as I did working with him.
