I would give you some Karma if I could.  Simply amazing.  I have been showing all my non-model building friends this and they are stunned at the detail and authenticity.

Awesome job.

Simply amazing Mike, I think the client will love the Diorama. So, how far is the thing traveling?

Thanks guys. I'm pretty amazed myself at how it turned out. I've always avaoided the Woodland Scenics turfs like the plague, but they really added a lot of depth and texture here. Everything really came together.

This will be traveling from Pittsburgh to near by NYC. Not too far and the initial plan was for the client to come and get it, but he'd rather have it shipped. I hope that works out okay.

The whole thing looks just the the movie, I really like the 'water" dripping. 

How do you part with such labor of love and creativity?  I'm sure the owner is ecstatic about the final product.  Shipping can be tricky though, good luck with that.

Fantastic work! I like very much, we would imagine there!

I like the aspect of dead leaves and seaweeds

Luca, Anubis, Well, Petar: Thanks!

Major: Happy to part with it. I feel like I've been staring at it for too long. :lol: Plus it's really big and takes up a valuable portion of my workspace. :doh:

Client saw it and loves it. Whew!

This is absolutely awesome! The water is done so nicely, too bad in the end most of it is covered by the Xwing.

Looking at your completed work is enjoyable, but reading your wip is even more fun and informative. Love every bit of this, from start to finish! ^_^

Thanks guys! My client just picked it up a few hours ago and really liked it. Did a lot of chatting about modeling and the next Hoth diorama I'll be doing for him. Hurry up with those speeders Fine Molds!

Been watching this one come together, and the whole thing looks awesome. It's like an entire setting from the movie has been shrunk to scale. Too bad you can't sell your Yoda off to Fine Molds for them to include with future X-Wing releases!  :pirate:

Oh, and mvm3897? I got that "karma" thing covered for ya.  :D
