I'm sure you've all already heard of this so I'll keep this short.

I've been selected to head up the team responsible for the diorama construction and design. This of course WAY too much forone person to handle alone, which is where you guys come in. I need volunteers to help design/construct the various pieces of the diorama.

I still have yet to decide how many people I'm going to need for each type of construction, i.e. City, mountains, wilderness, etc.

I've got a bunch of ideas running through my head right now, as I'm sure most of you do as well. We'll hold off on them all for now, until we know more about how much space we will have, and have some more concept sketches.

If you are interested let me know and I'll add you to the list. :)

Ryan, you are an excellent choice to oversee this portion of the project.

You know what I think about this part of it; I think it's the most essential part of the design.  Making the actual base/flooring to it I think will be crucial.  It needs to be sturdy and easy to piece together. 

I don't think that a big number of people should be sending in parts to the actual base, I think it needs to be a select few to keep things consistent.  I'll help in any way that I can on it.

Also here's an idea for the flooring part for maybe the actual base to it - stone floor tiles (like for the ground to the city portion).  I've used them on a few dioramas and they really work well.  Not too expensive either.  Might be a little hard to transport, so if they are used it might be best for someone local to pick them up and bring them to the "construction site."

I've just started reading about this UGP stuff and its really mindblowing!  Man, this would be cool! 
Anyways, I had an idea I thought I'd share.  What about a planet/land that has a dark side and a land that has a light side.  Of course, the terrain would reflect whatever side its on (dark side with spooky forest, dark ocean, etc). 
To seperate them, there is a great wall, just like china's great wall, and carved into this wall throughout the entire spanse of it is a relief representing light vs. darkness, similar to the one in palpatine's office in E3.  (This could be done by someone who is good at sculpting, or could even be done by casting lots of figures into one giant plaster cast.)  At points, there are towers on the wall with guards and a giant iron gate nicked, charred, and dented with battle damage. 

anywho, just a thought I'd run by ya'll.  Let me know if I could help in any way.

Is this where we throw out environmental ideas about the planet and stuff? Or is there another thread for that?
