War of the Worlds Diarama - Spring Build (Diorama)

Here's my entry.
Because I am going to be adding a 3rd ship to the diorama, this is a picture with parts from both kits, that I purchased.

That model really tied the room together.

I've light blocked the ships and made up strip lights.
Light test photos.
Once I paint the clear parts green and add them to ship, I think this is going to work well.

Ok, here is another light test.
I have drilled out the holes for where the force field legs would be.
I am going to fill them in with clear acrylic and paint green as they are in the movie.
A bit hard to see that it is lit, but it is. 
Enjoy

Matt, this is gonna be way cool....I can't wait to see more! By the way, I guess I must be hungry cause when I look at your picture #6 I'm reminded of my grandma's baked ravioli's.

Lol.
These might feel a bit over cooked.

This is going to be great!! Love the original movie and own both seasons of the tv series from the 80's.
