(Winter project 2017/2018, third upgrade of the vitrine cupboard) Poe Dameron figure ... why not a modern Rebel euh Resistance Pilot.
- - - - -
I will not rush this, upcoming time do research where i can find what i need.
And, i will have ask for help ... because lot of this stuff is PayPal payments. I can't have an PayPal account, i tested a while ago. The moment i wanted to pay with PayPal, they asked to link my PayPal with a Visa/Mastercard, i'm not allowed to have a Visa or Mastercard. So i will need help for collecting stuff.
- - - - -
But first the research ...

A. Chest Box + Hoose.
B. Glie-44 + Holster (option).
C. Glooves.
D. Leg Straps.
E. Shoes / Boots.
F. Flight Vest.
G. Dark Orange Flightsuit
H. Helmet (option)
I. Ejection Harnass
J. Signal Flares + Bandolier
... lucky me, some Jek Porkins shape to in the new era.

B1. Glie-44
Today (Wed. 16 May 2018), went to Roeselare (Belgium) to pick up the Nerf Glie-44 Blaster that i had order.

... i could not wait, and started to remove, logo's, texts. Sanded the seams ... and prepared for the next steps.
- - - - -
Today Fri. 18 May 2018, i went shopping for epoxy stick, epoxy primer and paint.

- Epoxy Stick (Bison) the professional version. The reason i use this stick, the sand is softer, it knead better and no clumps, like in the commercial version. Bought this at Demashop, Roeselare (Belgium).
Why not Pattex Epoxy, my opinion, it's crap. My personal favorite is from the brand Magnum, but i can't find it anymore.
- Epoxy Primer, this is something new from Motip. I got last year a few samples of this product. I love/like it ... a lot. It fits for all kinds of plastics, even PE plastic.
- Black Bumberspray, mat (Motip).
- Autolack, some kind Champagne/Grey (Motip)
... bought at Mateco, Roeselare (Belgium).
- - - - -
Last night (Fri. 18 May 2018), sanded the Glie-44, and made it ready to paint.

... i have taped the two very small led stripes
- - - - -
Today (Wed. 23 May 2018), after put the helmet in primer, i put first layer of primer on the blaster. The blaster will need another layer of primer.

- - - - -
Paint it black (Fri. 25 May 2018) ...

... next step will be taping, for the final paint job.
- - - - -
Last weekend (Sat. 26 & Sun. 27 May 2018), that's the luxery of bad public transportation, i have time to work on this project.
After black painting, taped the parts that don't need to be painted in the grey/champagne color, and painted the blaster in grey/champagne.

... next step, when i find it is brushing black paint powder on the blaster, and then varnishing it.
- - - - -

... removed the tape (Tue. 29 May 2018), all i need to do is weathering (with black paint powder and varnish.
- - - - -
For the weathering ... i used a mix of black paint (i didn't found powder) + water + dish soap + towel paper + HG sticker remover + piece of cloth + clear varnish. I used tips and tricks from The Darth Hair

And finito (Mon. 4 June 2018).

H. Helmet (option).
Last evening (Thu. 17 May 2018) started to strip the helmet, and prepared for sanding ...

- - - - -
Today (Fri. 18 May 2018), after i did the household tasks i started with sanding of the helmet ...

- - - - -
Today (Sat. 19 May 2018) ... sanded the last bits, and made some adjusments to the right cheek piece. So it looks more accurate, is it perfect, don't know, but it looks a lot better.

That grey thing, i don't know what the correct term for that part, for those who knows it, please tell me. About that grey, from the movie pictures, i see that this thing sticks out of the helmet.
So i cut and sanded, made a plate for mounting inside the helmet, and glue everything.

... and it sticks out.
To glue, i always use this ...

... because this helmet is made with PE plastic, and not all glues will work, i always put some glue primer on, and use this Epoxy glue of Axson A135, these two products i bought at K.N.S. (Roeselare, Belgium). I use these products since my first (2008) prop builds.


... after put the right shell back, i cleaned, and prepared for paint.
I'm still struggle with the colors, and decalls.
- - - - -
Weird weather today (Sun 21 May 2018), i put everything outside for painting, but Thor visited me, so i moved everything back inside, it cleared in the late afternoon, and up coming days no nice weather, so i have to wait until the gods offers nice weather to paint.

But, i didn't do nothing ... started to think about coloring the helmet + what decals to use.
- - - - -
Today (Wed. 23 May 2018):
With the weird weather outside, asked permit to paint in the shed. Put plastic on the walls/table/floor/ceiling, to avoid issues home.




... primer
- - - - -
Coloring (Fri. 25 May 2018) the bucket, white ... it will need a final layer and then taping.


Starting to paint with somekind of orange ...

... these pieces need to be taped for other colors.
I still didn't make/made decals.
- - - - -
(Mon. 28 May 2018)
It wasn't easy to paint with this paint, it's the first time i use this type of paint, so i have to learn to paint with.

... right ear + left ear + forehead ...

Owkay, i had first take pictures, and then put tape on. Snorry !!!
- - - - -
... with Omnimar in the background, did some work on the helmet (Tue. 29 May 2018). Continue taping the parts that don't need
painted in red, and painted the parts red that needed to be painted in red. Hmmm Red In The Sky Is Ours (At The Gates).

And also painted the other parts in some bling bling gold stuff.

These are the cans i use for this helmet ...

Just same issue for the blaster, i need to find black paint powder for the weathering. But this is an issue for the upcoming days.
- - - - -

... put (Thu. 31 May 2018) the last color on the helmet.
- - - - -
Fri. 31 May 2018, a final white paint layer. Start the clean up, removing the tape, and start to paint/re-paint the damages of the tape, or spots that need some extra paint.


- - - - -
Mon. 4 June 2018, weathering the helmet and varnish it.


- - - - -
Tue. 5 June 2018, the future decals:



1. will appear on the backside of the helmet on the small mohawk.
2. will appaer on the front of blast shield, and at the back of the helmet.
3. will appear on the ear parts of the helmet, i need to have something rock n roll and my love fore skulls.
4. will also appaer on the blast shield (front). I made an small adjustments to this design, because it would be to difficult and expensive to make a decal of this.
5. this will appear on the back/left of the helmet (STAY ON TARGET).
6. this will appear on the back/right of the helmet (REBEL SCUM).
I sended all the designs to Pixel2Vector, they will put it for me into vector files, so it will be easy to print in decals.
- - - - -
Sat. 16 June 2018 ... soldered the wires that came loose during the build + re-installed the inner helmet.



Next week, put the decals.
- - - - -
Mon. 18 June 2018 ... decals. I went to pick them up, and put on the helmet, and sprayed final layer(s) of varnish, this to protect and dim the glossy of the decals.



... with this, i can say this part of the project is ready.
