    Hi,
    due to the response of my other Star-Wars-Dioramas, here is an other one I build some time ago. Its the escape scene in the asteroid field at episode V

    what a beautiful diorama !!

    May I ask a silly question: how do you build different fighters in the same diorama with match scale? I suppose the falcon and x-wing all are paper model. We also download several versions for them. But one difficulty is how to adjust the scale so that when putting them together, the visual feeling is match?

    :)

    At the following link you have the dimensions of nearly all known Spaceships:

    Jeff Russell's STARSHIP DIMENSIONS

    After I found the dimensions of Falcon and Tie figter I scaled the Tie down. You have to scale it exactly half size down. So I printed two pages on one sheet of paper. This is a very easy way to scale models down.

    As this is TESB, it is incorrect. But who cares, most people won't even notice. :p

    Yes, right you are! I thought that the scene would be more interesting with two different types of imperial fighter. You are one of the first who noticed that.

    Yeah, in the asteroids they were chased by the fighters and bombers, not interceptors. Still a nice diorama though. I might try raising or lowering one or two of the models, to put them on different levels.

    Cool! I really like dioramas (as principal Skinner said: Diorama-rama! My favourite event beside the ear's check of wednsday!)
    I already built the Ties indipendently(half dimensions too!), I miss just the MF now and a huge dose of fantasy and skills!

    How do you realized the asteroid? Clay? Impressive!:thumb:

    Hi,
    the asteroid-surface is an compound of tissue and gypsum. The canyon-part in the backround is made of polystyrene cellular plastics and gypsum.
