I'm still prepared to make these, but we need the go-ahead from command.
Just haven't heard anything in a long, long time.

Yeah, sorry about that. Other pilot-y stuff got in the way. Once elections are over, this is going to get fast-tracked as I know that there are a lot of pilots planning this for Celebration.

Two weeks ago, was F.A.C.T.S. 2014 Con ...

I was forgotten my rankbar in the hostel ...

... so i trooped without rankbar. I made this rankbar with the sizes of the suggested standard rankbar.


... group picture on Sunday 19th October 2014 at Flanders Expo (Belgium).


... some cut outs from the series of group pictures.

Pictures made by friends, with friends ...






Normally, after the group picture i asked our CO if it was okay that i went pick up my rankbar at the hostel, but at the same time someone of the F.A.C.T.S. organisation came to pick me up, they arranged a meet and greet with Carrie Fisher, as a surprise/gift from F.A.C.T.S. Team.

So i went backstage to the meet and greet with Carrie Fisher ... euh all i can say about what happen backstage it was fun & delicious. And without i asked for she wanted to sign my collar ...



... with result i need to find a new collar jeez

And to be honest i have doubts about a collar or go for a tunic (http://foto.textiles24.com/pictures/chauddevant/615.jpg)

If we can get orders in prior to 3 weeks from Celebration, I could have these done in time to hand deliver them at the con.

Are we anywhere close to a costume standard yet?

Hi Guys

so with 4 weeks before flying out for Celebration I am working on making 3 of these (well I'm making the jacket pattern the people i'm making them for are responsible for the rest of it).

and wondering if there has been further discussions on these.

currently planning on following the discussed dimensions for the sash and belt.

But my main question falls in the range of seams, I feel it needs at least a centre back seam for shaping but curved princess seams would maybe help shape it better.

due to time we are going with just a center beck seam and still need to work out the shoulder but that is today's project

Hello,
this is the Prototype of our EU Pilot rank bar.
What do you think about it?
If it is o.k. we will do some more...

Um, you do realize I designed these and have been waiting 2 years for them to get approval so I can make them for the legion, right?

If you're going to make them for your members then I would suggest getting a thicker material for the black backing, and double up on the gold material, not use the clear to thicken the badge.

Other than that, I would also suggest using a super-strength double-sided tape to attach everything instead of the glue (You can see the smear at the top of the lower right pip were it smeared after being moved, the tape won't do this.).

Also, don't use the brushed-gold material. there is a matt-gold that I used, it makes the red pips stand out better, and less likely to flare up in pictures.
