    I first got this diorama in the Detolf size. It is extremely well designed, manufactured and finished. It’s also a fun, if tricky, build. I imagine lego collectors would enjoy this one quite a bit. One of the best things about Jazzinc dioramas is the attention detail. The service corridor really looks like it’s jumped out of the film and into your home. The paint and finish is fantastic and really pops. But of course at detolf size compromises must be made. In this case, you lose that wonderful circle shape. So when I made the jump to Stuva’s (driven entirely by a desire for the Tantive IV entry diorama) I ordered the conversion kit to make this one truscale. The conversion process requires you to deconstruct the original for the most part, but that’s ok as it’s quite an enjoyable task seeing the diorama go from great to amazing. The truscale one is also a lot more sturdy. At detolf size, it really needs the detolf enclosure for stability (out of the box – you could add more if you wanted to make it freestanding, such as the included “guide tool” used in construction). But at truscale, it can stand on it’s own. The only suggestion I’d have for improvement is that the back floor-plate doesn’t go quite all the way to the back image board leaving a gap. But this can be easily hidden. This particular diorama doesn’t come with lighting, but if you want to add some it’s pretty easy. I used an IKEA light strip attached to the back of the last wall panel on each side. I used the multi coloured strips so I can use either purple or red lighting to make it more atmospheric and match the onscreen lighting effect. Adding a belkin wemo power option means I can control the light from my mobile phone as well. All up this is a fantastic diorama. Mine is always a talking point for visitors. I’m looking forward to more of the Jazzinc dioramas (Bespin Gantry on preorder with my eye on some others). They are so great my only problem is deciding which to get as space is always a battleground. Thanks to Joost and his father for these.
