Hi All,

The dio is now completed for the comp which is happening of at Star Wars: A Custom 1:12 Galaxy Public Group | Facebook. The comp runs until the 10-12-2018 then the judges will pick the top three. If you want to see some great Star Wars custom and diorama's head over and check out the awesome work.

Recipe

Shoretroopers - are from Bandai and are built straight out of the box, I have left them articulated so the can repositioned around the diorama. Once built the figures were painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints and Pastel chalks.

Base - is high density foam and the landing pad section was done by scribing lines into the foam and then painting it. The sand is done by mixing 70% spakfilla and 30% sand with some water and applying it to the base. Once the mix was dry it was then painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints and Pastel chalks.

The cargo containers were made using 1;35 scale containers that I had left over from another project. The fuel containers were made using PVC plumbers connections and deodorant lids and the hoses are old extension cord cable. Once built these were painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints and Pastel chalks.

The palm trees were made using card board tube and then I wrapped string around them and then I glued tissue paper to them with watered down PVA glue. The palm leaves were down by spraying A4 paper with green paint and then I cut lengths out and then cut the leaves out using scissors.
The palm trunk and palm leaves were painted with Vallejo paints and then given washes of watered down paint to get the colours I wanted.

The large bushes are from Woodland Scenics and are their Olive Green Foliage set. The plants are plastic plants I picked up from the local pet shop and they were given a wash of medium green to tone the colours down. The grass tufts and small clumps of bushes I picked up from my local gaming shop
