Hey all, as some of you know, I have started working on my Rebel Pilot and as the title suggests, I am going for approval of face character Jek Porkins (Red 6). Thus far I have ordered my flak vest, harness, and belt from Claudio of custom props thanks to Woulf. I have been talking to Darthhair about a helmet and should be ordering my remaining pieces hopefully at the end of this week if MonCal gets back to me on whether or not he has any orange flight suits in my size ready to ship. Any suggestions on flight suits in case MC doesn't have any at the moment? I know VaderDave carries them and I could get them shipped with my gloves once I order them, but I was curious about the quality as I know people give rave reviews for MC's. Thanks for any advice pilots, and I hope to be standing by before C2E2 rolls around

I haven't seen Dave's but I'm sure they're good enough. MonCal's are awesome, that's what I have now, and Claudio's are pretty good too.

As I said I would LOVE to recreate Red Squadron here in Nar Shaddaa base. Your Porkins, Jim is Wedge. I want to make the whole squadron for myself, but personally I wouldn't mind making Biggs, or Red Leader personally. Crix has Luke right?

No, we don't have a Luke. Rob keeps talking about doing one. Brian has talked about doing a Biggs. Then there's the random Red Squadron pilots too...

Honestly, I'd much rather make a Rogue Squadron, but that's me.

I have a weird boner for ANH. I am at one point going to make all of them for display, and wear...but I totally would love to get a actual squadron together. I don't remember the Rogues totally...(but would love to be the guy who has the flames over the redbird on his lid).

No Luke? I could fill that role too. Not trying to derail Dylan's thread here, but the way I see it-

Red Leader: Available (maybe Kevin S)
Wedge: Norman
Biggs: Available (maybe Troyan)
Luke: Available (maybe Kevin S)
Porkins: Dylan and Rob H Hamilton

We have Crix, Redden, and Mammen who could make a entire Squadron, and then myself doing another. I would LOVE to have a entire squadron at a Con, or Legoland.

<Breakdown> These are the most popular helmets that stand out from the Assualt on Yavin. This is what I want to do ideally (since that is what the public recognizes.)

Red Leader - Garven Dreis (Shot down by Darth Vader)
Red Two - Wedge Antilles (Managed to retreat after sustaining damage to fighter)
Red Three - Biggs Darklighter (Shot down by Darth Vader while covering Luke at trench)
Red Five - Luke Skywalker (formerly Jal Te Gniev; Destroyed the Death Star; saved by Han Solo)
Red Six - Lt. Jek Tono Porkins (Destroyed; Debris from turret caused computer malfunctions)

<First attack Squadron that does the Trench run with Red Leader>

Red Ten - Theron Nett (Shot down by a TIE fighter at trench while covering Dreis)
Red Twelve - Puck Naeco (Shot down by Darth Vader at trench while covering Dreis)

<Random Pilots in the Assault>
Red Four - John D. Branon (formerly Cesi Eirriss; Shot down by TIE fighters)
Red Eleven - Lt. Wenton Chan (Shot down during combat)

I will make a new thread...

Lol good breakdown Kevin. I think it would be awesome to get a squadron together like this for cons and other events. Plus, all it would take to do different members is a helmet change if you already have a pilot and in some cases the chestbox as well.

Dylan,
let me know if your having trouble getting your orange. Claudio makes a really good suit, youve seen mine first hand, and he custom makes them to your measurements.
Ive got the inside track so i can usually get a hold of him pretty quick. actually if you let me know soon enough, i can probably see if he can add it to previous order and save a little bit on shipping. Let me know.

since my chest box is modeled after Zev Senesca's I'd be a little more inclined towards Rogue Squadron Mr. Green

You are correct sir!

Also remember that most of the ANH helmets resurface in the other movies as well. For example, Dutch aka "Gold Leader"'s helmet is also Hobbie's in ESB & Grizz Frix in ROTJ.

The only ones that don't get reused is Luke & Biggs.

Come to think of it Kev, you'd make a great Hobbie.

I totally forgot about the re use. Yeah man that be sweet! I just need to get into the orange first then can go on a building spree. The only super expensive part is the Hoth jacket right?

Pretty much, unless you make it yourself of course.

BTW, if you're doing Porkins, better start growing out the goatee. Facial hair is required for Porkins & Biggs.
