Thread: Hoth Rebel Base

  1. #21
    Just picked up a Second large AT-AT for the battle scene from a neighbour who is moving away. Only paid $40.00. It was missing 1 missile, & 1 lowering harness. Excellent deal IMHO. That makes a total of 5 (3 small & 2 large AT-AT's) for this project. I'm just missing a couple of tactical screens & a few chairs. Should anyone wish to donate, or knows anyone who may have any tactical screens they can part with; or any chairs (12) from the star trek galaxy collection please let me know. Much help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    THANKS FOR THE AT-TE & FALCON HASBRO. NOW IT'S TIME FOR A LARGE TANTIVE IV!

    Cool shots, it's really coming along. I'll keep an eye out for chairs and screens, I was just talking with someone about that recently.

    Is that the laser ice drill out in the snow in in your last attached thumbnail? And if so, is that from the movie?

    Star Trek figures come with chairs. They can be had for pretty cheap.

    Awesome Thanks

    The last two pics from the inspirational photo's show what they call the Hoth tank. I've already constructed one & have a few pieces to apply before it's ready for paint. It's sitting next to my half complete ion cannon & Hoth generator underneath the work table.

    The Hoth tank never made it into final cut for the battle from what I was told, it is however in the hangar shots if you look closely enough.

    Laser Ice Cutter is its official name:
    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Laser_ice-cutter
    We discovered this 3 years ago in discussion about whether we'd buy one as a toy: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/showth...ce-Laser-Drill

    It was used in this pair of promo shots: http://nl.starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Be...Ice-Cutter.jpg
    http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__..._gunner_01.jpg
    And shows up in another shot in the Echo Base hanger: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:EchoBaseHangar.jpg

    I'm super impressed that you found an image of it on the battlefield, that is excellent. I can't wait to see your completed version, hopefully some of the linked images will help. Using the EU Cloud Car was a very clever choice since it has a similar rounded shape and that front lip, and if you cut away the back you can extend the deck out to the rear edge.

    Love the use of what I think is the Complete Galaxy Death Star as the Hoth ion cannon!

    I stand corrected,

    Another Sheldon moment for the books, I prefer hoth tank as it looks like a tank, but alas it's laser ice cutter; so we'll have to go with that. The image on the battlefield came from therpf.com, it's a model replica building site.

    Yes the EU Cloud Car was a hard choice to make as I didn't want to remove it from the box in the first place. The main laser cannon (from the larger AT-ST) is situated closer to the front of the vehicle to allow a figure to man the cockpit area. I also used a small box for accessories & 1 laser cannon from Dash Rendars ship for the rear cannon. Needs some paneling on the sides & then it should be ready for paint.

    The ion cannon is the complete galaxy death star along with a cashew jar for the base & 1 laser cannon (missile will launch) from a star wars accessory. Needs lots of paneling & paint, but it should look great when finished.

    I'd love to get some really good pics of the hoth rebel personnel carrier as that would make a welcome addition as well. See image located in front of Falcon (below cockpit).
