That landing craft is amazing.   :wub:   All of that tan.  How many pieces are in that thing?  Err, approximately.

Part of me wishes that Jar Jar was actually under the landing craft, soon to be squished out of existance  :devil:

Not to criticize, because this really is excellent work, but all that open green space needs something.  Maybe some brush in the background, or a patch of tall grass.  It's just a little too flat, if you know what I mean.  

But still, excellent, excellent work yet again, AC.

Thanks and this is what happened after sorting through the tan bricks which I'll be using in a future MOC. There's probably close to 1,000 pieces as the wing span is just over 90 studs.

:laugh: You're supposed to fill in what he had to say about this!

The C-9979 was meant to be photographed as a standalone and the idea hit me to do this scene while dismantling the previous dio. Thus I just used whatever was left of the greenery. So I knew that the landscape wasn't going to be focus of this work. Someday I'll have the C-9979 in a more appropriate battle oriented diorama.

Ah, now I understand.  You've done some amazing dios before, so I was kind of surprised this one seemed so sparse.  

Oh, and uhh:

Meesa go squishy now.

Can't help being lazy after all, it was an unplanned MOC and I really needed the workspace for the next one.

I've used the DK Incredible Cross-Sections as a reference for this and various screen shots from the movie to get the shape as close as possible.

I remembered vaguely seeing a pic from TLC in a diorama during one of the SW Celebrations. Not likely that TLC would come up with an actual set for this ship.

This would probably be UCS scale and am pleased with the outcome even though it was unplanned.

Is there anything you can't build?

I agree it looks about UCS size.

Been asked that question a lot of times and the answer is still the same. Haven't tried much in Mecha! Someday I'll come up with an SW themed dio with the theme. Everybody knows my forte is SW but when its gets tiresome, I do other themes to mix it up and use techniques that otherwise I won't get the chance to do.
