Well, mission accomplished!

Thats my final interpretation of the A-Wing pilot...

"Entering the fastest starfighter"


"Proud to be a rebel pilot"


"Hello, someone out there?"


Thanks for your attention!
And remember: Fly casual!

You should really put together a tutorial for an a-wing costume build. You did such a great job. Smile

Some good with that ref. pic, and some bad. It's a cobbled-together pic from others that's been color corrected.

I did notice that the ejection harness loops around the legs appear to have giant safety pins in them...

It's also a pre-production image, so things probably did change.

But I'd mostly use it from the waist up for any sort of reference. Waist down... it's not even the same picture. The legs actually belong to the pre-production Ten Numb. Laughing

Yup, this pic gives a "strange" image of an A-wing pilot...

IMHO,
- helmet misses top shield Razz
- wrong colar Mad
- no zip cover
- Undershirt like racing underwear? Rolling Eyes
- no leg pockets visible (or only very hardly visible) Crying or Very sad
- safety pins on harness.... ROTF
- green coverall colour looks too light

BUT:
- This pic gives the best view on the chest box and beneath bottle available right now, and the gray (very dirty white?) instead white bib on the flak vest looks interesting... Thumbs up
- AND: Maybe now more people will recognize those green pilots as A-wing pilots.... woo hoo

O.D., did you make this part or purchase it from somewhere?

So, after I had a closer look into the Star Wars character encyclopedia I knew I had to....pimp my costume! (I hope to use this word correct now!)

First thing is this:


Better to see here...now you know what it will be, right?


I know, this is still not 100% accurate, but thats the only way I can make it. The original is much more rounded and looks like a ...?

Pics of progress will follow...

The "hose connecting piece" is made by myself from 1.5mm plastic sheet material...not really hard work, but it needed some tries to find a proper size!

Just some figures now...

I use a foam tube (for isolation purposes) with a diameter of 62-63 mm as base for the "bottle" construction. This diameter just fits perferctly togetherr with the upper chestbox, it´s cheap and lightweight...
The lenght of the bottle is 150 mm.

The "hose connecting box" (imagine it as worn on the costume) has following measurements:
upper (longer) side is 90 mm long, lower (shorter and bottom side) is appr. 50 mm long. I can´t say this exactly as the corners are strongly rounded.
The total high of the box is 35 mm. The left angle (longer edge) is somewhere between 55 - 60 °, the right angle (shorter edge) has appr 65° (taken from the upper edge).
The slot for the velcro has a lenght of 30 mm.
The total width is 34 mm.

My hose just sticks and is glued in a hole on the bottom of the box...
