This is really, really cool Ryan.  I can tell a lot of work has gone into this!  I really love the patio section/entrance.  That really gives it a realistic feel to it, and the painting of the exterior is fantastic.

As for the interior, I like it a lot.  The design is wonderful and reminds me of a bar setting totally.  The color might be a bit more vibrant than I'd expect, maybe instead of red, some sort of darker maroon or even a purple would look more like a shady stripper establishment.  But either way I love this.  I can't wait to see it completed and populated with figures!  Especially that cool little stripper stage.

My next project for this will begin this week... I am going to have my work cut out for me.

 :P

Thanks Chewie. That's kind of what I was going for, but the paint decieved me, and wasn't as dark as the cap showed it was. :-\ I may give it a darker coat, cause I agree that would probably look better. I did  light it kind of funny, it actually isn't quite that brite and vibrant, but it is still a little brighter than it probably should be.

Jay, thanks for the heads-up on your progress of your Trade Fed. diarama! That is awesome what you've done with the Droideka. Can't wait to see the finished product!

JediJayBird - that looks great!  How much more is there to actually finish?!?!  BTW, I love the effects of the Testors spray paint in the background  ;D

It was added in the Special Edition  ;D

There's quite a bit left actually... the floor, ceiling and paint/weathering deco on the "set" even if I don't finish it by the end of the month, I'll finish it eventually.

Oh My God!  You've really, really outdone anything I was hoping I could do on this.  Wow, I feel like I'm looking at a movie set here.  This is fantastic.  Can't wait to see it done...

Thanks, I am printing my floor panel right now.

I have a poster printer at work, perfect for projects like this - floor dimensions: 22" x 28"  :o

(Jeff makes a mental note of what to steal the first, and most likely last, time he is invited over to Jayson's house to see his new Star Wars Shelf set-up)

Wow, Jayson, this is sooo cool.  You know you are going to have to have us all over to show this thing off once it's done.  ;)

Wow, first time I have ventured into this thread, and... wow. These are some great looking set-ups, and Jay you are a damn action-figure artist. Very impressive...
