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. 

Here is the gallery of his journey from start to finish, I hope you enjoy viewing them as I did working with him.

Mortal Kombat – The Pit

Mortal Kombat – The Pit

I have recently been commissioned to re-create The Pit from the Mortal Kombat games scaled for 3.75″ figures.  I took inspiration from the original game while adding my own touches to it.

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

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

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.
