Here's my latest MOC. It's a 24x24, and it's on Naboo. My main goal for the MOC was to use earthy colors (i.e. sand red, dark tan, and sand green). My biggest problem for this MOC was trying to use sand green on the roof, since my supply of sand green is small, but I think I pulled it off. I didn't use any refrences for this MOC, so there may be inaccuracies. With all that said, here's the MOC!  :classic:

Great job! Love all it's SNOT-ieness. Don't know why you used rocket droids.

Looks great! I love the rubble sticking out of the walls and whatnot. Im not sure how I feel about the rocket troops, perhaps just some normal battle droids? Great job though!

Pretty good MOC 501st Commando! For a small diorama it really has the Naboo 'feel' on it. I love the damage-effect on the walls, columns, and floors. And very clever build on the arched stacked 1x1 round bricks, though I guess it's a bit fragile right?

Great work with the fallen bridge!  I like what you did to that clone with the breather thing too.

Thanks. For the droids, I really wanted contrast, instead of tan on tan.

Thanks, and the 1x1 rounds are very stable, since a flex tube runs through it. It's very useful for round shapes.

Awesome job,  It's a wonder that anyone tried to boast a naboo moc after seeing what ACPin did, but I think yours is nice and has a lot of it's own unique styling elements.  Great job!

Hello!

What I like best is the house and the characteristic look of the Naboo town style. :classic: Your diorama would also work nicely for rescue scene of the members of the royal court by Qui-Gon and young Obi-Wan in Episode I. :classic:

Cheers,

That's a really appealing MOC you've created!  You certainly didn't need reference pics, since you got the Naboo feel down very well.  The sand red is a beautiful accent to the color scheme.

I agree with others that the Rocket Battle Droids don't make much sense here.  Perhaps if you used security battle droids with the red chests, or pilot droids with the blue chests, it would still be enough difference in color and still fit the setting.  Of course it's your MOC, though, and you can do what you want.

I could definitely see this as part of a level in a Battlefront game, if they ever release a third one that covers more of the Clone Wars.

What SNOT? The base of the model? Not all that special, is it?

I think this is a great little diorama, not a great fan of adding laser but it does add a little action to the scene.
You might consider putting the battle droids on 1x2 plates that are set in the tiled floor.
It looks a little odd to see a 2x4 tan plate underneath the battle droid and you can easily remove a 2x2 tile and replace it with a 1x2 plate and 1x2 tile or even a 1x1 plate to allow the battle droid to twist a little.

Great job 501st :thumbup:

A very nice diorama that doesn´t have to be mentioned that this take place on Naboo.
It is pretty selfsaying, and obvious, and there fore as well mission accomplished  :thumbup:
I like that there is so much that is SNOT in this MOC. Naboo palace area feels like a really
nice and clean place (exept for the war coming there) and that is well shown by the SNOT technique.

A solid build, 501st. You've implemented some great techniques. I particularly like the arch with the flex tube running through it - that's something I need to start using on my builds. The rubble is well done too, as others have mentioned. You've got some solid snot work too with that wall design and the ruined floor.

Forgive my ignorance, but what does the lever base with rubber band around the clone trooper's helmet represent?

Nice MOC, and I'd love to see you take it to the next level with a larger diorama!
