I need Hoth Reference. Not the real battle, but all Rebel stuff, like Echo Base, Wampa Cave, Hoth Plains, ...

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

No problem, iHu. I wish I could be more helpful sometimes, but I thought this would be a good central place for photos.

----

As for Geonosian pillars, I don't have anything up close. There weren't that many close-up shots in the movie. Try finding a picture of Padmé at the top of the pillar like these.







I found these pictures with a quick Google search.

Thanks Professor. On this shot, looking at the 2 pillars that are in the background, they looks like they are smoother at some spots and rougher (like the pillar in the foreground) at other spots. Is this how you guys see it, or are the pillars the same texture all around and its just the coloring playing tricks with my eyes?

I am working on pillars for my 1/6 figures. So far my idea is to wrap shipping tubes in plaster of paris bandages and paint. Probably shape and place the bandages to achieve the grooves, but I am not sure if I need to smooth parts out. Thanks.

You also might want to go back and watch the documentaries on the Phantom Menace DVD. I think the behind-the-scenes footage of Jon Knoll "hand-shaking" the miniature engines for this shot wound up being used in two different documentaries.

Thanks guys! The side view shot in this link will be especially useful. I am doing a 1/6 scale "Ody Mandrell's record setting pit droids" scene (one of my favorite scenes from EP I).

Unfortunately it won't be hyper detailed, but it will be passable. Most notable I think the engine will probably end up as one continuous cylinder rather than the "yo-yo" shape it should be.

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

I am preparing to start on my first diorama of the Endor battle that takes place in front of the shield generator bunker. I can’t seem to find any good pics to use as reference. Dose anyone out there have any such pics? I specifically would full size front and side view of the imperial bunker that Han is trying to get into. Here is a pic of the Kenner/Hasbro version ( http://www.rebelscum.com/POTF2endorattack.asp). Also can someone tell me how to post on the forum? Any help will be appreciated thank you

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

This is actually a request for some vehicle reference pics. If anyone has the old WEG Rebel Alliance Sourcebook or the WEG Imperial Sourcebook, could scan & post the pics of the hovertanks, chariots, LAV, etc. Thanks.

Does anyone know if the command bunker is pentagonal or trapezoidal or what? Are there any schematics or blue prints in any of the technical journals or anything?

The scenes we see when the guys are inside supposedly occur in the bunkers "basement", right? Or does the bunker butt up against a hill?

Thanks!

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

First, I don't have any of the sourcebooks, so unfortunately, I can't help out with those pictures.

Second, as for the bunker, it looks trapezoidal, and I'm pretty sure it backs up into the hill. I've seen a few shots that show the back wall getting shorter and shorter, implying it leads to a tunnel in the hill. It might be a basement, but either way, it's the back door to the larger complex.

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

Anyone have pics of Leia's cell in the Death Star? Specifically looking for the detailing above the cell bed as well as the floor and ceiling. It looks like storage compartments or something?

Thanks.

Anyone have a shot of the actual door in Mos Eisley that C3PO and R2 close when hiding from Sandtroopers?

They completely redesigned their website. I'm afraid all those pictures are gone. I'll remove them from my post.

I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but here's a shot of an interior door of the bunker. It's not the back side of the main entrance, but I bet the design is very close:

what iam doing is making a diorama to display my figures in but i dont like it when things just sit still SO ive used motors and microcontrollers (to run a seqeunce of movments and sound or manual control) to make the bunker door open and close and atst turn left & right etc.

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

I'm afraid I can't help you too much because I can't capture pictures from DVDs. However, if you're a member of Hyperspace, I seem to remember that they had a series of rare snapshots, some of which were pictures from an extended sequence in bunker. Good luck! Your idea sounds very ambitious.

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

Kashyyyk and Felucia: Anyone have any good reference pictures of Kashyyyk and Felucia? Pref around the time of Order 66, I'm trying to make dioramas of Kashyyk for Luminara and her troops and Aayla and her troops. This includes buildings, native plants/animals etc; Thanks in advance! I'm looking for good reference images otherwise I wont start work, I'm not going to start it and mess it up. Waste of money.

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

Here are a few. I just did a google image search.



Might I also suggest checking out the game Battlefront 2 for some ideas. Felucia and Kashyyyk are both featured planets.



















There was a big article before Episode III about Kashyyyk on Hyperspace, but I can't find it on the newly designed website.

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

Thanks for them pictures The_Professor, I couldn't get some of them to that large of scale and now I can see much more detail. I think I'll buy some bluetack today and start trying out sculpting the 9 plants I've sketched out from the Felucia reference pictures. Also the Kashyyyk ones are great I can see much more detail on the stands and platforms now I can sort of see how I'll make that diorama but I might put Kashyyyk off for a bit, it looks like alot of work with the walls and buildings and I might wait until I have more money. I'll see how my Luminara custom turns out and see if she sways my mind though. But for now, Bluetack and Felucia Plants.

Re: Diorama Reference Picture Request Thread

Sorry this took so long. The canyon that R2 travels down has actually been named Star Wars canyon. It was also the site of the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark when Indy threatens to destroy the ark.

Here's one picture. It's not the right time of day, but you might be able to use it as a basis.
