Thanks guys, I enjoyed making it Smile
The old banner is frickin awesome, and we'll still keep using it. But I thought it would be fun to change it around every now and again.

Thanks guys. The image upload, to the forum, seems to have compressed it quite heavily.
As the images are quite blurry in comparison to the original. I might have to tweek the resolution a bit. Then re upload it Smile

Nope can't seem to get the pics any sharper. But I have changed the order of the pics, so that they run more chronologically. I've also added the relevant banner pics to this thread. So that it makes more sense to read, if the banner keeps changing.

I thought I'd post all my banners, so far. In this thread, so as to keep tabs on all of them.

This first one is the original banner and was created by Stephen aka "Kamshaft".  
He used a photo that I took Of my Tantive IV model and produced this really cool banner with it
 Cool

This second banner I created, using some vintage Kenner ships. That James "ourchickenshack" had taken,
for our work in progress, vintage vehicle guide

(I'm thinking of swapping the deathstar in the background, for my Palitoy deathstar playset)

I used my Tantive IV playset and some of Clints Custom figures to create this banner

This next banner I created using some action shots, that Clint took. He used his own awesome, custom built figures, to create the shots

I picked up a 3D printed Deathstar style diorama from ebay. Which I spray painted grey, to create these banners

More Tantive playset shots

I also plan to pick up a couple of vintage collection Carbon Freezing chamber playsets, at some point in the future.
