I know I've already give kudos of at RS, but seriously, I can't give enough compliments. It's truly a great work of art.

Very very cool! All it needs is a holographic Endor in the middle and your set!

That's an interesting suggestion there by Nick too, on the CG Endor planet and holo Death Star piece.  I'd be quite interested to see how those look together (Nick, got any pix?).


I would be ashamed to post them after seeing pics of this!  It's just a bunch of Rebels huddled around the two pieces on an Ultarama display piece with some background pieces that look like something found on Home 1.

Hey DB,

Did you ever consider buying a clear ABS ball from Michaels (or whevever they can be found) and painting it up to sorta be a holographic Endor?  Might make a cool little addition to the display if you could do it right, but man painting that would be a pain in the ass I'd think.

I was just thinking about your dio today and how the planet could be added.

Thanks everyone, for the great comments!  Yeah, I remember seeing at NiubNiub's site that someone had made the holo table and used a clear globe tinted green like JJ suggested.  It looked great, but I just didn't want to cover-up too much of the scene with it.  Maybe I'll make one and use it in some pics and remove it in others!

By the way, sorry about the dark pics; here are a couple earlier shots in better light without any figures:

Famine, that was about 2 months of 1 day per week work.  It's hard to estimate since I jump around with a few projects and have some days with 5 hours of work and others with 1 or 2.  Here is that Dresselian I promised Dressel Rebel; he's made from the Saga 2 Endor Trooper and POTF2 head and cloak.  I drilled out the head to fit on the neck post.





Edit: here he is in the dio, as well as a couple Endor troop variations:





And another painted variation:

Even without the figures in the dio it is still very very impressive you my friend are a master at making dios.

Just finished a couple techs for my ROTJ meeting dio.  These are Jerjerrod bodies with white Endor trooper heads and Jerjerrod caps.  I sculpied some details and repainted everything.  Hope you guys like them!
