    After that I designed a field of Stars. I used plates, that contains two thin layers of metall. The LEDs have two pins with a different length to get power. I cut these plates to fit into the frame and wired each of them

    After that I added a layer of black acustic cloth. So the spots are not that bright and diffuse. This should get the models more in focus.

    You see the effect in the right area:

    So, I have no more Death Star tiles, so I am stuck for the time being. Next steps are to complete the death star surface. Then I will put in a pane of glass. Finally it will be integrated into the Boba Fett scence by using the same wall panels.
