Sean Sides/SQUARE MODELS – MSLZ22 Models – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back – MEGA SCALE – Imperial Walker (AT-AT) Diorama – Work in Progress Nearly Completed!

This is a highly detailed AT-AT replica standing over 3′ tall, mastered by Mike Salzo of MSLZ22 Models. I’m building, painting and customizing this to be set up as a diorama of the moment before the AT-AT steps over Luke Skywalker’s crashed Speeder.
The AT-AT model is base painted with a gray primer, then weathered using a variety of oils and chalk pastels. The ‘cockpit’ has been lit using LEDs and even an outline of the 3 ‘pilots’ in silhouette.
For the snow effects, I’m using the amazing AK ‘Terrains Snow’ and ‘Snow Micro balloons’, on top of a hand crafted plaster of paris snow base, coated with an acrylic primer (Kilz). The Speeder is the old AMT model kit, as it’s accurately in scale, but I added a scratch built Luke out of a 1/24 BF-109e pilot figure. The cockpit also includes a slumped over ‘Dak’ tailgunner, and some custom seatbelts and other scratch details. The windows of the speeder have been ‘damage’ to closely match the full sized speeder crash. The ‘windows’ are made of a Compact Disc (CD) case cover, cut out, then scratched and damaged for the scene. Additional snow details were added to the speeder. The snow chunks around the speeder are all made individually and placed (that was a lot of work!).

I’m hoping to get the entire assembly together with updated pictures in the next few weeks.

Thanks!
