That's neat J-Trooper...  For the scaffolding around the AT-AT, what did you use for the verticle pieces?  Looks like some kind of construction material but I can't quite place it.

It would be real neat to see 3 more of them combined to form a "fort" of sorts, protected on all sides then.

I like it though...  Was it all custom made from scratch, or is the base itself a piece from something you already had laying about and you just built around it inspired by its shape?  I find that both are unique ways to work on things like this.

I love the creativity of doing scratch fan-fic buildings and vehicles.  It's often one of my favorite things to view in customizing, beyond things that are pulled from EU or movies and the creator is trying to match the source material perfectly.  The open-ended nature of fan-fic stuff and scratch builds really is more interesting to me most of the time.

Throw some more photos in if you want, I'm sure everyone would be geeked to see them.  I may go nab some of that metal this weekend.  It's a surprisingly effective piece and just needs cut with some styrene strips.

I thought I'd seen those things before. Clever thinking! And a great (and big, no doubt) playset! Reminds me of Hangarbay94's Endor Landing platform. Your set would look terrific next to it.

I also love the real lights you put in there.

Excellent work all around  :)

Good stuff man. I'm you discovered how to post pictures here. ;)

Like everyone else has been saying those girders are perfect. I'm going to have to remember that. I can think of a few things I'd like to do with them. :)

I think the lighting is my favorite part. I really like seeing people take their set-ups to the next level like that.

That is very cool. It reminds me of a GI command center.
