I printed and painted the Mandalorian and now it was time to build a diorama to put him on. This Mandalorian tatooine diorama is over 3′ long and fits on the top shelf of some new bookcases I have for displaying my dioramas. I wanted to incorporate the speeder bike design from Gambody as well as a few iconic Tatooine features, such as the canopy and those stormtrooper helmets on spikes and buried in the dust.

3D Print Files
Speeder bike files from Gambody (not affiliated, just satisfied). https://www.gambody.com/3d-models/speeder-bike-mandalorian
Stormtrooper helmets from Prusa (https://www.prusaprinters.org/prints/3041-stormtrooper-anh-helmet/files) and I used the supplied blender file to ensure all the accessories and bits were printed in one file.
Printed on my Peopoly Phenom.

First I primed the bike with Halfords Black Matt Automotive Spray Paint.
Then I changed my mind and used Tamiya Fine Grey Primer on the bike itself https://amzn.to/2Po1MJO
I used a mix of Lifecolor, Vallejo and Tamiya colours for the rest of the paint – just what I had on hand but I do have a large stash!
I also used a mix of Mig Productions’ washes – I have had these for years and they are still going strong – and I used the dark, brown and neutral washes with white spirit as a thinner and cleaner. Ammo by Mig now has similar products as do AK Interactive and many other suppliers.
