If I recall at C3, besides Nuib's dio building area there were several very impressive dioramas on display.  I wasn't a customizer then (that was my first experience) so I'm not sure if those belonged to him or other fans.  However, there were definitely more dioramas than just Nuib's build the death star.

Niub had his own dioramas on display in his alotted area, as I recall...  I don't know if anyone else maybe DONATED a diorama, but the dios I recall were all in NN's specific zone and I think most (if not all) were ones he's done over the years.

The only non-NN thing I remember specifically that wasn't in his area (other than what we had at the FFURG table) was Gary Weaver's AT-AT, which was right outside NN's on display as you entered NN's area.

I was there and was on the team. the Lars homstead garage and the jabba palace was done by Jamie from the wook's workshop  (check dio links at rebelscum). The young jedi training room was done by somebody at the cutting edge and he was from belgium.  the dagobah swamp was done by the dude from florida and he has a site ( I think it's dagobahswamp.com)

I heard from Niub Niub guys, am going to try and discuss a few things with him.  He's a very nice guy and supportive of the customizing community, and I'm sure if there's anything he can do to assist us or offer advice, he'll do so.  I'll let you guys know what I find out, but it might be a bit - I'm usually very busy, and I can only imagine how busy he has to be.

He just updated his site today and I there is a link to what i'm guessing might be a new email. I don't think he is using his videotron Montreal cable/internet company email anymore since he is in San Fran

hey guys, yes it is me, frank D Niubniub :)
i just read chewies email yesterday so sorry for the delay in response. If you are a long time fan of the site you KNOW that I read and reply to EVERY message sent my way.

yes indeed, the dioramas that were on display at the C2 AND C3 workshops were a mix of mine AND YOURS - the VISITORS. If it was only MY displays , i would fear my head had swelled so much it would have been hard for the builders to breathe in the same room ;p

Its just not me. This year I have NO dioramas of MINE at the show. couldnt bring them with me accross the country. WAY too far. so Im actuallyt counting on Fans to be the displays this time.

how big is this display you are making?
if it falls under a resonable size, i would be THRILLED to show it off INSIDE the diorama workshop.
if its 20 feet wide, well Lucasfilm might not agree as it would take up too much space, even if fans might think its cool.

if i can help i will.

That would be terrific if that worked out, Frank- not only to have it around a lot more traffic, but to be in the vicinity of other great dioramas.  I hope this works!

WOW! Thanks for the help Frank!! This is great news. I'm really starting to get worried about LFL. I guess now we can do the big size version of our little project.

This is GREAT news.  Frank, you are the man.  If it's possible, personally I think we should use space that Frank has if we can do that... that way we definitely KNOW what we can and can't do.

Frank, I'll shoot you an email soon... and Thank You!!!
