I realized that I never posted this here when I completed it!  I have a WIP version of the thread over at RS too.  Thanks for looking!

Very cool indeed!  I can also understand your omission of Leia from the scene.  That POTJ Bespin Escape Leia is way too preposed for the scene you put together.

Thanks, guys!  Leia is actually there, behind Lando!  You can see her just a bit in a couple pics above.

I gotta ask DB, but what did you use to make most of it?  The light fixtures, the wall carvings, the tiled floor...?  Were you going with plastic shapes on that stuff mostly or what?  Very accurate/detailed.  It's probably gotta be one of the more challenging environments to create in such detail I would imagine, given the level of intricacy the sets had, coupled with the complexity of a lot of the details.

Color me super impressed...  This trumps (and that's no small feat) your other dioramas by far...  I can't say it's as exciting to me as a Rebel briefing room or stuff like that, but for the level of detail, I can't help but applaud the work. :)

Hello Daigo-Bah,

You have created a breathtaking diorama with such tremendous attention to detail. The design of it really gives the impression of light and space just as the move depicted it. Your images really do it justice.

This is simply gorgeous work Greg. You did an extraordinary amount of detail work for what really amounts to a fairly basic hallway. It is that kind of attention to detail that makes you one of the elite diorama builders in this hobby. I don't think there is a person here who wouldn't want to have that diorama to display their Bespin figures. I know I'd love have mine in a set up like that. It amazes me how you keep finding a way to get better at this. How long would you say that this scene took you to complete?

Thanks Ryan!  Sorry about the delayed response; I haven't been over here in a couple weeks.  This dio was probably an hour every few days for a month and a half or so.
