Hi. I am going to be making an A-wing flak vest for Nien Numb and I wanted to check here first to see if there were any suggestions, tips, etc. on the hardware (if any) and etc. that go into these vests. I think I've already seen all the pictures that are out there for the A-wing flight suit/costume, but I was hoping someone could shed some light on what they did for theirs, what is required, etc.

I know it is charcoal grey sort of flannel material with a white portion on the front that has 2(?) ribs, sort of like the X-wing flak vest has, under the chest box. The back it is pretty much just a small square with a white strap on the bottom and two grey straps on the top. That's about all I have at this point. I'd love to know what goes on at the sides of the vest, how does it fasten? What happens to the white strap? Etc...If anyone could help, I'd greatly appreciate it.

If there isn't any set in stone advice or requirements I'll be "inventing" it, and making an A-wing flak vest tutorial. Am I correct that one does NOT exist yet? If I can get this down well enough, I'll offer to make them to anyone who wants one, but I need to get the specifics down fist. Smile

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Nien Numb doesn't wear an A-Wing Flak vest...

I'm going to be making the flak vest for the person who uses "Nien Numb" as his username here on RL, not the character from ROTJ. I can see where that would cause confusion!

I'll be sure to post pictures when I get it done. I purchased the materials today. I need to finalize just how I'm going to make it and then I'll get working on it. When I get the tutorial together, I'll be posting that as well.
