    Several months ago, HotToys released their 1:6th Indiana Jones figure. Some loved it, some hated it, some made minor changes to it that elevated it from an o.k. release to masterpiece.
    I made some minor changes but mainly, it's on my primary display behind the Ark of the Covenant.

    The sideshow Indy that I HAD in that position, got moved to his own diorama that I used the HotToys Idol pedestal on. (don't mind the headless body, it was used for a Smallville figure bash)

    But I still had the hatless Indy, I put him in the HotToys Arabian disguise only to sit on my shelf..

    But then, sideshow had been showing something, something I wanted but honestly, could not afford. Their Tanis Map Room environment.

    It was big, didn't have the entire map area, but looked pretty cool none the less.
    Eventually, I settled on collecting as much reference as I could, and making my own. In my second post, I will share the pictures of my current state of progress.
    Now please note, mine is also not accurate as I have condensed it down to about half the size the room SHOULD be but I will be including all of the buildings when it's finished.

    Obviously, I'm not going to post up my reference photos. They were mostly found via google anyway. Also, the buildings may not be sized accurately. I don't really have measurements for any of them and am guesstimating numbers based on screencaps and such and then doing pixel-counts. :facepalm

    The buildings and pyramids are being made from card-stock and reenforced with two-part epoxy and superglue.

    I also made the brush that Indy used to dust off the ramp

    I will need to add detail to the ramp

    and a quick shot of some of my notes/map

    Nice! Keep up the good work. I understand why you're not doing it to scale with the figure though - the space needed for that would be a pretty sizable footprint!! Keep us posted on your progress!
