I particularly like the red light on the "keeper's" door! Nice touch!

Historical Diorama Contest Entries - Come see the Hall of Fame!
« Reply #69 on: November 30, 2009, 06:52:35 PM »

The Hoth battle has been one of my favourites since I saw the movie in the theatre at 7 years old. I remember the view of the AT-ATs through the Rebel’s macrobinoculars,the close view of feet, then panning back, thinking WOW!-What are those?-Cool! I have wanted to make this full sized diorama for a number of years but the sheer size of it has been prohibitive. This contest was a good excuse, not to mention I have an empty garage now.

It’s on an 8 foot by 8 foot base (2 pieces of plywood) sitting on 3 tables. I planned and laid out the “mountains” and base area first, using boxes and other items. I then covered everything in chicken wire, incorporating vintage and POTF2 toys in the Rebel base, making the trench, and providing a mold for the landscape features. I held it all down using an electric stapler. Next was LOTS of paper mache, adding texture to the landscape. I then painted the Rebel Base area (about 2 feet from the end) all in white and the rest all in black. Next, I added grey highlights and a “wash” to the mountains and plains. I found some plastic, squishy, paintable molding clay at Michael’s and I used this to fill in the spaces between the dried mache and the toys for the trench. Next, I used spray adhesive on the mountains to make the “snow” stick. I used 18 boxes of baking soda for snow. I then added the Rebel troopers and fine details to the Rebel Base and set out the walkers and crashed speeders where I wanted them. After that, I took white synthetic filling and spray painted it for smoke and explosion effects. I added blast marks in the snow and debris around blown-up things. Lastly, I hung the speeders flying over the base from wood positioned on my garage door supports overhead.

Highlights from back right, in a clockwise "spiral":
•   Stepped-on speeder, black smoke billowing out the back, speeder has bent right gun, Luke has jumped away just in time and is holding a grappling device; small “fire” effect where foot meets speeder. Dead Dak in the back.
•   Fallen AT-AT that Luke threw a grenade in, billowing smoke where its head used to be; debris from explosion. Behind it, Luke looks up from the snow to see his handiwork as an AT-ST walks by.
•   Rebel Trenches – smoke effects, blasted tower gun billows black smoke, exploding dish gun has “fire” effect, I added power supplies and wires; Major Derlin has macrobinoculars in his hand
•   Fallen AT-ST blown to bits.
•   Crashed speeder on mountainside, small fire effect
•   There’s a small “cave” in the mountain with the radar dish beside it. I would have loved to put a little Wampa in there but didn’t have one available.
•   One AT-AT has a speeder flying between its legs
•   Fallen AT-AT with “wire” around its legs
•   Center AT-AT has Veers talking with Snowtrooper

This was a great deal of fun! I wish I could leave it up forever but I can’t. I’m leaving the heartbreaking task of taking it down for a couple of weeks though. Choosing 3 pics for this was not easy! I will post more after the contest is over.

I am also an avid fan of anything Hoth.  This is truly a project done on a Star Wars scale...a fabulous job in my opinion!  I'd love to be able to visit your garage and see it in person.
