This is a diorama I made for  friend to display his smaller scale "Star Wars" figures. This is one of his favourite scenes.

I made the Sandcrawler itself entirely from just corrugated cardboard recycled from boxes and computer print-out.
It's actually quite a bit longer at either end than you see in this photograph. There is an upper door for Jawas to stand in which is internally lit.

That is amazing! affraid You made the tracks! And you used the corrugations in the cardboard to make the track mechanism look more realistic!

Wow! Just... wow!

When I was a kid, the sandcrawler scenes were my favorite sequence in the first movie. It looked so real, and so huge! I was very sad when the sandcrawler was destroyed by the Storm Troopers.

How did you do the internal lighting? Battery-operated holiday string lights?

I was disappointed when I saw that in reality the thing was little bigger than a shoe box! The very low camera angle made the thing look huge as it came into view over the sand hill!

Very similar. Those things have great applications for modelling. I did a cut-away flying saucer for the same bloke using them.

Thanks Brian and Dal!
I'll try to get a few more pics to show the rest.
It was made specifically to fit the entire shelf above a computer desk. There are actually three parts to the thing.
The two tracks and then the main body which rests on them.

Great build and nice photo
Love it
I recently dug out my old Star Wars figures and put them on display bounce
There's still some vehicles and other 3 3/4 " figures to sort out in my parents loft
