TESB Finale Medical Bay
« on: August 11, 2010, 01:43 PM »
Hey guys!  Just finished my latest diorama.  I have WIP pics over at RS if anyone's interested.  The galaxy is a pic of the actual Andromeda galaxy, with a rebel ship photoshopped in.  Thanks for looking!

Meh.  It's an okay start, looks more like a WIP pic if you ask me.  Need to pay more attention to your details too.

Just kidding!!

Another amazing job.  I couldn't ever muster the patience you have for all of these fine little details you have in there.  If Hasbro ever sold these dioramas at retail, I would be one very happy collector.

Greg, that's outstanding as always...  Your attention to detail doesn't just give someone looking (and comparing) your works sensory overload, but it even makes me laugh out loud sometimes that you catch little things like the parts on the tray for 2-1B to work on Luke's arm.

Even how you lit the ceiling of the room was impressive to me, maybe among the most impressive details...  I'm still curious how you did the "flourescent tube cover" look to that.  What's that material?

I almost hate to ask this, but can you part-by-part go through your construction of the bed?  That is a single piece that I think anyone would love to make themselves for the Luke figure they have to sit on.  He's ok standing, but VASTLY superior with his sleeve up on that bed IMO.

I recognize the bed's base as the treadwell droid...  beyond that though, you've got me.

Wow! That really is an incredible diorama. Everything looks exactly like the movie. I knew someone had to make this dio sooner or later when those two figures came out. I'm glad you did it!!!

Thanks so much for the kind words, guys!  Yeah, the ceiling is one of my favorite materials: it's an opaque shelf-liner (the kind you would put on your shelves for dishes, etc) that I bought years ago to serve as the ribbed doorway threshold for Tatooine dios, like the Cantina entrance.  The light coming through here is actually just natural light from my window above this diorama!  As for the chair, here's a closer pic (note that I altered it a bit since this pic; namely I removed the pieces sticking out from the sides and replaced it with thin wire).  The bed itself is made of 3 pieces of thin balsa wood cut with an x-acto blade.  It actually can recline a little based on the puzzle-piece shape it has.  The cushions on the bed itself are little rectangle foamies.  The control box on the side is a foamcore rectangle dressed with little cpu board greeblies.  The opaque tube under the chair is a wire "sheath" that I crimped repeatedly with a wire-cutter.  I cut a hole into the floor of the dio so that the treads of the treadwell would sink in.

wow, that is absolutley amazing! i don't even care for that scene much but your dio has surpassed the actual scene by leaps and bounds! the detail in this dio is nothing short of masterful and the materials you used look like actual real-life material, it dosn't look like foam board etc, etc....in many dio including my own it is still easy to tell the foam board parts, this however is seamless.....i haven't seen work from oyu in a long time due to my abscences from the hobby and community, and this is an outstanding look at how far you've progressed in leaps and bounds....great work all around this dio!

just out of curiousity, how long did this master piece take you and how do you choose the scene"s you create?

again great work and i hope you are well!

Wow! This is stunning! Great job!!!

I was really wondering about that chair as well, so thanks for explaining. How do you have this piece displayed? Is it in a shadow box?

i don't even care for that scene much ...

Huh?  Don't like that scene...in 1980 sitting in giant, one screen theaters, this scene (and the last 30 minutes) of Empire were crushing to a 12 year old.  Powerful movie, it is.

Amazing work on the dio...just wonderful.

Anyone who can put the detail and time into this sort of things deserves full kudos and this dio is a great example of that.

Good on you!!!
