Ill put this placeholder here for a new R1 MP build. I have had parts for this for YEARS. I had a black vest once. No clue where it is now I have the leather parts I need to dye and finish. I have had TERRIBLE luck with dye so Im afraid to dye it and have it come out all wierd colors.
Ill get a shirt made. I have purchased three or four Navy shirts, and none match. Not even close. Ill go back and have it made from scratch like my Sqweems was, so the thing fits, it matches, and the cuffs are long enough
Ill use my boots Ive used on everything else, My modified DH17, and my trooper helmet. I MAY paint it grey for this. We will see.
The pants are on the way, I purchased these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/124014862282
Expect a long slow build on this one too. Everything has to wait for when I have money, and I took a huge pay cut when I got laid off.
In hand:
Helmet
belt blank
holster blank
Boots
DH17
4 yards black bulldrill

On the way, two pairs of grey BDUs.

Good luck with your built. My builts usually take one or two years to make them because of a lack of skill, lack of time, or sometimes a lack of funds. I try to make most items myself and also repurpose items that I do not need for other things to save money.

So sorry to hear! Glad you're able to walk away from it at least. Hope things get better for you.

my wife got a pic of the grey pants i bought last year.
Ive been looking for regular PANTS, but once you go above 2x it seems to all be sweatpants, as if no one WORKS, just lounge around all day.

Do you still have those cargo pants? They look like they might work for your Rogue One RFT.

Yes this is a few days ago.
Now, I need to verify this, but arent R1 RFT pants set up with a much larger and lower leg pocket?

My statement is based on the information in the CS, not on how the RFT pants actually look like in the movie. As far as I can remember, most Rogue One RFTs were approved with the same light gray BDU pants that most of the ANH RFTs use. In the movie, the pockets start about the same height as regular cargo pockets. They are just longer than what we are used to seeing. So yes, they are larger. The cargo pockets are also folded differently than regular BDU cargo pockets. The R1 RFT pants have pleats in the center of the pocket.

5. Trousers:
Light gray or medium gray (no charcoal gray) BDU pants with side pockets.

Maybe one day I can find a matching fabric. I really would like that more accurate pocket.
Ive been sitting here considering how to start the 3 upper pockets on the vest. The other pockets are just that, but my only thing is sewing that triple mag type pocket.
Ill play with some scrap and see what I come up with. I have the fabric for the vest already.

We might have to update the CS of the R1 RFT. It looks like they only have 2 magazine style pockets on the right side and not 3 like the ANH RFT vest from the prop store.

I am not sure about the construction of the pockets on the R1 vest the screencaps are not good enough to tell. I think they are probably similar to the ones on the ANH vest in the pro store.
