Ach, here wwe go again! No sooner had I decided to gather materials for a second build with diorama do I find a third subject!

This is just too good to pass up! I'm thinking an diorama of one of the fighter maintenance bays. Mayybe do some scratch-built equipment along with the set background. :D

I'm looking forward to seeing these come together while I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan the models people have built of the vehicles from it on a side note here are my newest toys I managed to resist for a week and then got paid

I've been digging out my stash of kits; the missus has converted my escaped Son's bedroom into a craft parlor. We can spend some quality time ignoring each other up close.

The classic Vipers make for some impressive eye-catching displays... My big brother built the rather sturdy models from the seventies.... I admired them back then.

I just picked up the Mk II's today. I'll be building them this Winter, with plans to sit them in a Galactica bay diorama. :D
