    empire/republic hanger. updated 5/18

    here's my empire/republic hanger, Thanks for all the great comments. After the reading the good suggestions about the floor, I have changed it out. The dio measures 30" x 30" and is about 26" tall. The tie grips are adjustable hand clamps. here's a few new pics.

    WOW . . . AGAIN! You keep amazing me with these dios. So cinema-like.

    Great attention to detail. The one thing is I am not sure about the linolium floor. Imp floor have a very distinct look to them.

    But that's not important. I'm still blown away!

    Wow! A HUGE and amazing diorama!

    Very, very cool. This looks terrific!!

    I also think you should consider putting another floor down.

    Here's a suggestion - I have a large piece of shiny, black reflective poster board that I've used in the past. Something like that might work great and they're very cheap at art supply stories.

    In any event, this is wonderful, imaginative work!!

    As I have stated in previous threads, I love to see the resurgence of large dioramas. Nicely done. As far as the floor, I like it. When I first saw it, my thoughts were that the Empire had set up a hangar in a former temple, like a Yavin IV setting, and engineered the walls to conform to their standards; leaving the temple flooring in place.

    yea i have seen the black reflective poster board at the store, i wasn't too impressed with it, too many dents and creases. The floor was made to be interchangeable, so it could double as a republic hanger too, so there is another floor underneath the ones in the pics.

    One possibility is printing out a floor pattern on glossy photo paper. That way you get the reflection you want and whatever design you want to put on it.

    AMAZING!

    Very, very well done. I too think the only room for improvement would be the floor. I used black giftwrap from Hobby Lobby to get a good smooth, reflective finish. Looks pretty good and it's cheap too.

    I'm friendly dammit!
