Star Wars Empire Strikes Back
HOMEMADE DAGOBA DIORAMA
Scene: When Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing fighter jet crashes into the swamps of Dagoba.
Characters: Obi Wan Kenobi, R2D2, Luke Skywalker, and Yoda.
Caulking, Canvas, Wood, moss, glues, paints, acrylics, epoxy, wires, light hub, LED lights, led, hose, putty, newspaper, paper mache clumps, enamel, clear acrylic sealer, waterproof sealer, dry ice, CPU fan, casting cloth, water, food coloring, spray paint, branches, and of course authentic Star Wars miniature figurines.
From start to finish took 4 weeks, with minimal work done during the week to allow drying of paints, glues, and materials, and the bulk on weekends. These are miniature figurines from the 80’s that I had and as an adult no longer play with them, so I thought it would be great to give them a permanent home on display.
Total Cost in Materials: $281.00 between Hobby Shops and Michael’s, even some restocking of common materials at Target.
