This is a dio I made a while back showing Luke and Artoo crash-landing in the swamp on Dagobah.

As my first ever attempt at a dio I think it's not too bad and I like how the lighted shots turned out  Smile 

I would love to make a bigger and better one someday!

I used a vintage Kenner X-Wing vehicle which I painted and removed the R2 that activated the wings. The dio was constructed with papier mâché, acrylic paints, found stones, bark and leaves, and lighting for the night shots.

I still have a few of the build photos which I've included at the end.

that is very well done my friend Smile. I don't really think you need to redo this one, it is already great looking. All I would do if it were mine would be add some swamp critters here and there. I really love the way you did the night shots for it as well.

Nice diorama Artoo, i really like your choise of materials. That paper mache gives a real murky water structure to the swamp, and he pics in the dark with the lights gives it that authentic gloomy Degobah feeling.

I like your Dagobah swamp diorama very much, Paul.

It just breaths the right atmosphere, especially with the night time pics.  :clap:
