    So, I have a Stormtrooper (action figure).

    This version, I don't know its scale. The one in the pic' ain't mine, that one been painted. If anyone happens to know the scale by heart you save me a google run. ;-)

    He looks a bit out of place where ever I put him for display, So now I had the idea to make him a diorama.

    I just got separated so I do not have much to spare for a epic PROJECT.
    But Internet have shown me that sometimes less is more.

    I have lots of glue, cardboard, My stormtroopers and some acrylic paint.
    Being a Interior decorator by education, and having some experience from model war gaming. I think I can probably do a decent job as long as I don't rush it. (Also I've messed about in pepakura/papercraft.)
    Anny experienced well meant tip and word is welcome dough.

    I haven't decided on the scene yet. But I'm thinking something something Deathstar, or other in-movie-indoor-interior-scene.

    *Project on hold.*

    If your talking about the hasbro figure, it is 1/18 scale.

    Awesome, go for it!
    When budget is a problem for me (all the time) I.ll turn to card or papier mache.

    With the rougher materials you could get a good looking mos eisley scene with bored ST leaning against a clay building.

    As for scale: just measure the models height in inches and divide that figure by 72.
    If the result is 24, you got a 1/24th stormtrooper.

    Good luck and post pics when you get going. :)
