Here is a 3d concept the mats would theoretically go on the flat surfaces .
Those are not cliffs I would make rockfaces that would offer a transition from the plateau to the main land.

Patreek, congatulations! Check out little Marley! :D

On the canyons, I am 100% in favor of them and really like the concept and how they would be added on top of the landscape. Yes, very good in my opinion and great explanation with the illustration.

Woah! Instant cuteness! :D

Congrats my friend! Tho I gotta say I feel badly for that ugly kid next to Marley... :wink:

And I like what I see with the diagram - from what your describing, the rockfaces should look great.

Obviously this isn't what we plan on our diorama looking like, but here's just some stuff for reference/ideas.

No, I didn't make that, wish I had!

I bought stuff for the main wall for the city today, that pink insulation foam.

Quick update on progress -

Ryan from www.jedidefender.com is taking over the entire landscape, which will help create a "uniform" appearance to the landscape, rather than several people creating something and us having to try and piece it all together. Here's his latest progress pics -

Image


Here's an updated side view of the layout showing the thickness of the "layers" - kind of looking at a map of the Earth's crust -

Image


Patreek has also completed the "cliffs" that will appear as part of the landscape (they will be laid out on top of it in one corner) -

Image


Here's a pic of a tower that will be in the city - I'm working on this and have to touch it up some more -

Image


I'm also in the process of working on a modular wall that will separate the city from the wilderness... using some foam insulation at this point but am looking now into trying another method.

Update on the city wall - I got to thinking, and changed the material on the wall from insulation foam to wood. I went to Lowes, bought some stuff, and did a lot of cutting and nailing pieces together tonight. It will cost more to ship, but ultimately it will be a lot more durable and I can put more detail into it I think. I don't have the best tools in the world and cutting it with a hacksaw was a pain in the ass... but I think it will be better off that way.

Here's what the layout is looking like right now - I really hope this is ok with you guys -

Image

The bars on the gate will be removable, and will actually be about 36 inches long, just 26 inches will show if the dimension is squeezed into 6 feet. Of course it could be stretched out too.

Now... IF I have time, I'll add an option center piece that can stand as a tower between the two walls, and connect the gate - that way one gate could be open, another closed. I don't want to commit to that though, but if I can get to it I will. Right now I'm still in the process of finishing my basement and the baby room so time's limited.

Okay, here is what I had in mind with Chewie suggestion on my city square center piece. Rought picture, but it gets the point across.
Image
If you don't like the Royal Guard idea, the globe can be lowered. Maybe if someone wants to build a round or so base of steps to set it on, that would bring it out more.

I had another idea if the Royal Guard don't work is maybe add some Stormtrooper helmets (casts or whatever) to each of the poles, like a Empire trophy or something like that. If the fountain idea comes back to play maybe have the water come down out of the bottom of the planet? Using the railroad water making stuff, not sure how to use that stuff. If this sounds cool, maybe someone could make it using a clear straw or tube of some sort and coat it. Then it could be cut to fit the finish piece. Anyone else have any ideas? I'm going to find some time for the henge and gap tonight. Thanks

Love the way you're going about this, the Dagobah complete galaxy planet is a great idea, I never thought that piece could be used for anything - you had a GREAT idea on this.

As we discussed at JD, using dowels would probably be the way to go (or BrentS might make a pedestal for it).

Thanks Roron!
