This is the "in-depth" version Brian, most of which I'm sure you already know, but I just cut and pasted it from another thread, so bare with me...

1. Find a picture you dig.
2. Right click on it, and you'll see a URL listed in the large box that pops up.
3. Highlight that URL and copy it (Ctrl-C)
4. Then go to the spot in you post where you want the picture placed, and hit this button   (from all those buttons you see above whenever you're posting something)
5. Then paste (Ctrl-V) your link that you just copied right in the middle of these two sets of brackets that you should see.
6. Wallah!

That should be it.  Hopefully that's not too confusing.  If it doesn't work for some reason, give us a holler, and we'll take a crack at a another tuturial.  If you just take it a step at a time, it should work fine.  Give it a shot and we'll see how it works!  Good luck!   ;)

That's really nice...  Those are "ErikStormtrooper's" decals, right?  It's simplistic in the materials used, but very well done.  I like that you got the floor to have a shine to it as well, what did you use for that?  Very well done overall.  A good way to whip up a display for the Empire.

Nicely done. I wish I had time to do something like that.

Again this is some great stuff. I love the sheer size of it. If I may offer up one critique... I think you should find a way to conceal the underside of the lighting. I don't like how you can see the wires and the power box. Perhaps you could do a build up on the underside of the platform, essentially making a hollow foamcore box. It would make the platform a bit thicker. I do like the glow the lights creates on the pillars and the bunkers. I wouldn't want you to lose that. For the underside itself, you could take a sheet of foamcore and make a few cut-outs, under the lights. Put some frosted acetate sheets on the inside of the box, that way you'll still see the light shining through, without seeing the bulbs or wiring. Other than though, great stuff. Keep 'em coming. :)
