Work, Work, Work
The one bad thing that comes with working in the FX buisiness are the crazy deadlines that make you work all weekend. I spent half time at work and the other fixing up some behind the scenes problems on my site. I hope to find some time this week to get my Bacta Tank finished. I have yet to work on Luke's Medic Bunkbed and 4th wall decals. Not to mention the Sculpey modifications. I know I have another crazy week ahead of me, but let's keep our fingers crossed.
OH - MY - GOD !!!!!!!
Come on...tell the truth...How many of you Jumped up and down like a 12 year old after viewing the Episode 2 Trailer? I am 13 again :) I was starting to get excited about this film but now - WOW - Count me first in line for the first showing - Hee hee. Did you see those Star Destroyer type ships? and the AT-AT predecessor fighting with the clones? I must get a kleenex to wipe the drool off my hood - LOL. I watched it frame by frame after the 10th time to look at all the locales and what cool Diorama possibilities there will be. It's gonna be a cool summer folks. Way to go Lucasfilm!!!!

Premiere NEW Visitors Hi-Res Dioramas Section
When M. Tanguy sent me his latest pictures, they were so clear and Huge it got me thinking...Why not make a Visitors Hi-Res Section starring your very own creations? Make sure to check out Tanguy's awesome Millennium Falcon's Cockpit. If you have Hi-Res pictures of your own work, send it in. You will be amazed at the power you can have to motivate others into joining our hobby of making Dioramas.
