Hey there. I've been meaning to get this going for quite some time, but with work, family, and actually working on this costume, I just haven't found the time. I have always admired the B-Wing starfighter above all others, so it's only fitting that I should want to be a pilot for one!

I have a fair amount of pieces for this done (at least I hope so) and will upload photos when I have a chance. Right now they are all on my phone, and my old photobucket acct is not letting me in so I will need to open a new photo repository acct somewhere first.

As I post photos, any constructive feedback will be welcome. This is the first thing I have done any sewing on in over a decade, so my skills are a little rusty but getting better, so please keep that in mind. There may be pieces I choose to redo or modify down the road, but I am on a deadline to get this done for a big event in about 8 weeks!

I am confident that I will have it done, but wish me luck anyway!

I have a decent number of vacation and personal days to burn before July 1, so I took one of those days today and decided to paint the mini flares and do some work on the chestbox. I have most of the greeblies painted now, but will hold off on the photo until they are dry. Now, the greeblie located between the potentiometer and the trench came with the kit, but it was suggested I fill in the hole that was provisioned for it, so I did. Instead, there is a greeblie missing from a recession on the right sde, so I will cut this one up to make up for it.

For the chestbox, it was sand, Bondo, repeat until I was happy with it, then I sprayed it with flat white primer. Of course, after I did that, any little flaw I overlooked was made obvious, including an area I accidentally sanded too thin. Long story short, I sanded down most of it and had to slather a whole bunch of Bondo inside and out of a cracked area, hoping that will be enough to reinforce it. I will find out tomorrow when I am able to sand it down again. I probably could have made it work with the flaw, but I would have to end up fixing it later anyway, so may as well do it now.

Flares:

Looking good. Smile

FYI, you only need six flares for the belt. There's only one set of them, unlike the X-wing pilot that has two sets.

LOL...yeah, I'm aware of that. Someone in my base is doing an A-Wing pilot so some are for him, and the rest are spares in case anyone else from my base needs them. It was all just a single dowel rod cut down to make 14 flares, so I figured I would just go ahead and use the whole thing at one time.
