Thanks :-). Your Speeder Bikes sound cool too, but yes, I can imagine them swinging about like crazy if you knocked them!

Perhaps I'm misreading / misunderstanding your reply, but just to clarify, although I showed comparison pics of the new and old skiffs in my first post, the pair of skiffs hanging in the cabinet are identical; they're both the new larger Hasbro versions.

You’ve used the available space well.
As above I can only imagine how difficult it was to get those two lined up and looking like they are flying along in front of the barge.
Really impressive, congratulations.
Thanks, Nick :-)

Now that I have a bit of space beneath the skiffs, I'm wondering whether I should put anything there? I was thinking about a bantha, but then I wondered if it would look like the Khetanna was about to mow it down! :lol:

I think that anything else in there will begin to look cramped, had you considered painting the base a sand colour, and i know you have the skills, perhaps a background?

Sorry I thought you hung the original one too, didn't know you had two of the new one's can see that now, I don't buy much modern but this skiff I just may have to pick up :)

You're probably right about it looking cramped, so I guess I'll leave that space clear, however I definitely am considering installing a sandy-coloured floor to the cabinet, and maybe some sort of background too. If I could work out how to contain it safely without making a horrible mess everywhere, I'd even consider adding real sand to the base as I think that would probably look good.
