Streets of Mos Eisley shelf dio
« on: May 13, 2011, 04:58 PM »
 Hey guys!  Just finished my latest; WIP pics over at RS if you're interested!

 










And here is the left side with figures added.  Note some pics have the foreground jawa after I gave him a dirty wash, and others before.  I don't LOVE that version of Luke, but I wanted to get his poncho in the scene since he put it on then.  I had carefully hot-glued Ben's (and Wioslea's) robes to drape more naturally too.









And on to the right side: I hot-glued all figures in place to prevent dominoes-falling!









And the last couple show the diorama in place on my shelf. I painted the inside of the shelf a sky baby blue, and you can see the Tatooine building stuffed there in the corner with my Mos Eisley guy custom from a couple years back.  This is a hole I've had since the beginning (this shelf built for my very early dios by a relative), so I was thrilled to finally get this one done!

I had a couple hours this morning, so I thought I'd knock out the seated jawa really quick, in order to put this dio "to bed" in my mind.  So here's a few pics of that- I took a spare POTF2 version and cracked off his bottom half, using some super sculpy to get at least a convincing seated robe shape.  I baked it, painted it, and gave it a slightly darker wash.  In the dio it helps cover up the Landspeeder support too!

Incredible!

Very, very cool!

Was there a quick way to do the pattern on the door frame?

Greg,

As always man, outstanding stuff.  Screen accuracy is always off the charts with what you do, and it seems that tradition is holding true.  It looks like IG-88's leg is in there...  I'm not seeing a lot more I recognize though, other than figures.  The rest seems like a buttload of scratch building, especially the cargo gear/junk, etc.  Really though, outstanding.

And the fact you did a seated Jawa?  I've wanted Hasbro to do a drunk Jawa duo for outside the Cantina for ages now.  I'd love to have a couple of those guys just to chill around a Cantina shelf for sure.

Really man, outstanding.  Every detail just oozes difficulty and I appreciate stuff like this a lot.  Thanks for sharing with us.  I always appreciate that.

Again, another insanely incredible piece of work.

Thanks so much guys!  And Jesse, as always, I'm honored you put it on the front page!  Yep, those are all IG-88 parts in that cross-sectional tube, a scene detail very hard to notice on-screen (though I think it was just random machinery in the set piece).  The door ribbing is a translucent shelf liner I found in either WM or Lowe's years ago, and I had to cut strips of it to get the 3-stripe characteristic of the Tatooine doorways.
