Watch it Made: Awesome ‘Star Wars’ Battle of Scarif Diorama

Jul 24 2020

This diorama uses a mix of sculpting, painting, model building, and resin to recreate one of the casualties of the major battle between  the Rebel’s Blue Squadron and Imperial TIE fighters.

The Battle of Scarif major battle in the Galactic Civil War that pitted the Alliance against the Empire. Imperial air defenses were called to protect the Citadel Tower from a Rebel attack they did not expect – the Blue Squadron breached the shield gate guarding the planet and allowed for Rebel pilots to attack the surface. Not all of them survived the fight, however.
