Introduction: Lego Star Wars Mural

About: Mad scientist, woodworker, creative evil, artist, tinkerer, father of five creative hooligans.

I wanted to share this project with the Instructables community as I'm really proud of the way it came out. Months ago it started with a concept drawing and since then has progressed to a completed project. My son is really into Star Wars, and Lego Star Wars, so my friend Bobnsteve (aka Steve Daniel) and I decided to do a 3D mural.

The mural is airbrushed on 4 separate 1/4" MDF panels. The hands are 3" pieces of PVC styled to match a Lego character hand. The cool part is that they double as holders for three removable light sabers.

The planet is painted on the back of a piece of plexiglass with a styrofoam plate cut for backing. Behind it are three LED light bars (from Sparkfun) with a cord running through the wall to a transformed below. A future enhancement will be a switch or dark activate circuit.

I can't take credit for the artwork -- Steve is an extremely talented airbrush artist (and it shows).

    this is so cool I'm only 10 and I'm gonna try to do it

    That is sooo cool

    Wow that is awesome. Really beautiful job!

    Beautiful work. I like that you guys painted on MDF. Makes it nice if you have to move or your son gets in to pirate Legos (my childhood obsession).
