Thanks for all the feedback. I'm glad everyone likes it so much. Its been a great project to work on and took so much longer than I ever expected.
Jediknight - hope you had a towel handy
but come on, its not that good.
Captain J Sparrow - thanks! as far as the machine... you'll have to wait for the Photonovel to find that out.
Ennis - Thanks again! I know you've been waiting for these. Once I realized that it was going to take so long to finish up the PN photography, I figured I couldn't keep you waiting to much more. There are lots and lots of more pictures planned.
CC - glad you liked it. I really think its the little touches that set these apart. I'm not conviced I added enough but I'm going with it as is for now!
Ryan - Too much praise! It really was built to be a photonovel set. However, it certainly looks and feels like a full diorama. Most of time I put these up and take a few photos and then take it back down. I left this up for a few days and just sort of looked at it
As far as how the diorama is put together. The droid room is off to the left throught he curtain. However, since each of those other rooms is just part of the "set" it doesn't exactly flow together. If you look behind the curtain you can see the door that is beside the medical droid. For the main chamber, I just pushed the other items in that room to the side. Shmi's chamber is in a room directly behind the main chamber (to the left of the gate). You can't actually see it in any of the shots I provided.
