Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to reach out to the collective wisdom and see if anyone has any experience in doing an RFT (Rebel Fleet Trooper) build?

I have a source for the vest, pants and a helmet kit but am struggling with the blue chambray / oxford shirts - does anyone have any hints for places that are either online or around Sydney?

Cheers,
Jon

Hi Jon,

Actually we have a member who has sewn a few of those for other members.

I've sent her a link to this post to see if she is interested in making something for you.

It is definitely something that you need to have made. Not available off the shelf anywhere.

Cheers, Sair

I'm sure shipping and the USD makes things a tad more expensive, but the shirts are cheap enough (and the sewing simple enough) that it might be easier to just buy two shirts online, like many of us do, and use the fabric from the second to make the front panel.

They're readily available on eBay and other online shops.

the proper stuff out of the USA was too hard to get so we made our own.

Above was a mention of using two shirts:

However, I've seen many recommendations to use three (doubling the thickness of the bib).
Is a single-layer bib sufficient, especially as pertains to the requirement that it not sag? I'm thinking this could work if I were to reinforce it with fabric interfacing. Thoughts/experiences?

I only used two shirts, and a single layer bib, for mine.

Frankly, in SoCal heat, the fewer layers the better!

Thanks!
