Just wondering where one would find background pictures for dioramas? Is there somewhere on the net?:confused:

I don't know either, I've been on this hunt for awhile, hopefully someone who knows will stop by.

A lot of the background pics can be found from various sites which were actually scanned from the Cinema Scenes three-packs, 12" figures and also from the vehicles. You can also scan from the various reference books to make your own.

For example, the 12" Speederbike with Biker Scout has a great background that you could set up for Endor. The Death Star Escape CS has the hallways. The B-Wing and Y-Wing have the rebel hangar that can be used together with the Rebel Pilots CS background.

You'll need a decent photo imaging software like Adobe Photoshop to be able to modify the backgrounds in the correct scale of the figures. Last but not the least, a good color printer is a must or you can have it printed in the copy centers.

Another source would be model train hobby shops where I got my background for the Hoth Rebel Defenses (http://www.figures.com/Features/index.html?show_article=25902&domain=sirstevesguide.com&dom=ss&domain_id=5) and poster stores for the Luke's Snowspeeder Crashes (http://www.figures.com/Features/index.html?show_article=26976&domain=sirstevesguide.com&dom=ss&domain_id=5).
