Hi!

I have a great idea (Please don't borrow or take this idea from me without asking me!!! ):

You know the big startrek ship (don't know the name on it) (that are fluwing around in the starwars movie), imagine if that ship is crashlanded in a marsh on an unknown planet. That would be the most challenging Space-diorama-project I would do in a "Campaign".

No answers yet after 2 month, but the thread will come first on the list :-)

Last descendant of the ancient Numenorean kings, raised with the wisdom of the Elves, known to be keen of mind and lethal in battle,

your suggestion sounds quite exciting, but it may give scale problems. Since the ole Enterprise is probably quite large, you either end up with a HUGE starship lying in a marsh (incredible diorama !!!) or with a starship model of more practical size in a huge scale, that would make it difficult to landscape the swamps. Such scale implies that your trees would only be a few millimeters tall, grasses and vegetation are impossible to detail,...

But making a dio with a detail part of the Enterprise in 1/35 or 1/72 in a swamp (with search and rescue units at work ? Aliens crawling around ? ) would be a striking diorama !

Yes, I think that teh "detail kind dio" would be more appropriate...
Because I think that a crashed enterprise kind spaceship would look a lot like a crashed airliner : scrap metal, debris, thrown around a large area...
