Hi Guys, here's my lastest custom. The Trash Compactor scene from ANH. I just installed the lights. LMK what you think. It was inspired from NiubNiub. I'm still learning how to use my Photo edit program and tried to fix what my cheap Cam produced.

Very nice Turbo, what did you use to create the walls of the compactor?

Very nice Turbo, what did you use to create the walls of the compactor?Thanks Killer. The Walls are Made of Foam core with vertical strips of poster board glued on. The Horizontal pieces are foam core also. I then painted with a few shades of brown.

Is this a three-walled diorama or just the two walls seen in the photo? Nice use of the Hasbro figures and base. You really got the walls and that door to turn out nicely, especially the lights.

The dio has 3 complete walls. I just took that shot because you could see more. Thanks very much. The lights and door were a last minute thing. I had it all together and said to myself, it needed something more. I cut the door out and cut the panels that were on the sticker and pushed them about half way throught the door, leaving a recess like detail in the door. Then I ran down to the local Scale train store and bought the red bulbs, some wire and a 16 volt transformer. 40 bucks later I'm home and do some soldering. I cut the 8 holes out and pushed the lights through. I didn't glue them in, because I know 1 or 2 will burn out and I'd be in a world of Crap to get the lights lose.
