Rebel Base: Adding Runway Lights & More

May 2020

This part of my Rebel base sits on the floor of the Star Wars Room, and I had originally built it for the Millennium Falcon. It’s a smaller space than some of the other sections so it was a good candidate for parking the smaller-scaled Power of the Force X-wing Fighter. 

I had some runway lights, like the one’s seen in the entrance to Echo Base in The Empire Strikes Back, 3D printed so I could add more than just strings of lights around the diorama space.  They look really nice, although a brighter bulb would enhance things even more.

I was also able to find a more permanent home for The Outrider, Dash Rendar’s ship from Shadows of the Empire as he visits the rebels, looking for an easy payout.  It’s a cool design and I’m glad to finally be able to display it where I want it.  The U-wing from Rogue One is a monster of a vehicle when trying to display it and like The Outrider, I think I’ve found a good home for it.  Still wish Hasbro would give us a better scaled one.  

The diorama isn’t 100% finished yet though. There’s an empty space in the back/middle that I want to turn into a small control room.
