This Dio features two display options, Han Solo’s Carbonite on display or The Carbonite block thawing. The Thawing Block is mounted to the back wall, and the other can sit right on top of it!
The dio was built from a plywood base and a plywood backer wall. I built it up with Pink Foam, and coated it in Plaster. To give the plaster some protection, I covered it in white glue (thanks Tankster!). Once the White Glue hardened I spray painted it bright yellow, then went about adding shading using an airbrush, I did various washes and clear coats throughout as well. Lastly I hit it wish some drybrushing.
The Dio features 2 LEDS in the base that light up through the grates on the floor below Han, and there is 1 LED behind the mounted Clear Red “Thawing” Carbonite block. See a vid of that LED in action on my facebook.
