I've decide to make this figure after I found all the pieces I needed in my bits box's. This small vignette depicts an X-wing pilot waiting for his fighter to be prepped so he can climb aboard so he can go on patrol. Once I got the figure into the pose I liked the head and all the equipment were painted using Vallejo, Reaper and Games Workshop paints.

RECIPE

Body, Head - Are from Dragon Models

Boots, Gloves - Are from Dragon Models, the boots are WW2 German officer boots and the gloves are from a modern day soldier.

Helmet, flight suit and life support reader - Are from Hasbro, the flight suit has been altered to give a snug fit and the helmet has had transfer added from Games Workshop. The life support reader has had the old flexible straps taken off and new ones added.

Helmet linning - Is from Dragon Models it has been altered and a microphone has been added using pieces from the bits box.

Holster, belt,and Pistol - Holster and belt are from Dragon Models an which have been altered from other belts etc, and the Pistol is from the old AMT Han Solo kit.

Base - The base has been cut from foamcore and has had balsa wood added to the bottom for strength. the small power units are old ink cartridges and the hoses are from an old printer cord cut to size. The base was painted to resemble a flight deck with dirt and oil stains added for realism.

This looks....well....so professional, it's hard to believe that this isn't a production model. You've just given me a lot to think about. Absolutly brilliant, that's all I can say!
