My version of NN\'s Trash Compactor upgrade





2020 Update! I wanted to merge the door decal with the back wall better, so I cut into the wall twice to accommodate the first recessed wall and then second recessed door. I cut out the "T" shaped orange lights decal and reaffixed it to the new recessed wall, and drybrushed some green over the small door decal to blend better. Aside from that, a few trash upgrades, especially the pole Leia holds; I spraypainted it with a hammered metal paint, and removed the long Dianoga tentacle in favor of the shorter one around Luke. Also painted it light green and with a shiny coat to make it look wet. Here are some pics:





And a couple pics with red-tinted lighting above:

Great work, I was planning on making this but haven't found the sets yet.

I have been considering doing that as well. It is a great show piece. I just haven't been willing to spend the $30 on the 2 sets. Good job putting that together.

Looks really nice--I especially like all the green, adds a mossy/slimy element.
