I wanted to create a balcony/overlook/overhang of some kind for Legion. I haven’t seen much in that regard at all. I started by trying to create something with Bespin / Cloud City vibes. Once I was finished with a first draft, I kept thinking it absolutely would have to have some lighting. I had been looking for a good excuse to do my own LED lighting and this was perfect. At first I tried a design with many smaller, evenly-spaced lights just like the movies.
I wasn’t totally satisfied with that (and it was going to be difficult to wire), so I started over from scratch. I’m very happy with the final result. I learned a lot about designing for LEDs and it will definitely improve my next design. The panels are extremely easy to customize. I went with a traditional Star Wars look for the walkways and a slightly modified version of the Imperial emblem (to make it a single piece). I also designed several different types of supports for mounting it.
