First off, I must give credit where credit is due. My custom here was COMPLETELY inspired by Johnboy_Walton's pilot over at RS HERE
. He was even kind enough to answer some questions when I PM'd him about his custom
Ok I'll call this one my Version 1.0
I based most of it on the new TAC A-Wing pilot HERE
There are still somethings I want to change and add. First, the helmet is from a Wedge figure. I didn't like the way the original helmet I was working on came out, so I'll have to add that later. I sculpted the chest piece but I think I'll have to redo it as it constricts the arms a bit to hold the blaster with both hands. I also want to add the air tube(?) that goes from the chest piece into the flight suit. I took some liberties with the paint job to suit this particular figure, so I wouldn't say it's 100% based on the real A-wing pilot. And of course, once I took the pictures I realized I have a few more paint touch-ups to do.
But for now, this version is pretty much done. LMK what you think. Thanks for looking.
