From what I remember, he isn't allowed to share the pictures online. Never could figure out why Lucas Films would care seeing as no one is really taking anything from them, but...

Ill be sure to share anything i find! I know Skaught may not be able too, but i will build my vest as close as possible to the description he left as a comment on your thread. So far it looks great and ive been using yours a a refrence as well at least that way will all look the same and if any new info arises it can be changed later.
Im really hoping that with the new Rebels cartoon comming out will get a chance to at least see a cartoon refrence of what the vest looks like.

Unfortunately I don't think there's much of a chance of that. Rebels takes place before A New Hope, supposedly, so no Y-wing pilots in RotJ outfits. It'll most likely be all X-wing pilot style flightsuits, and I imagine some new pilot suits as well.

But the vest is looking pretty good so far. And that box looks just about right, too. Is that the PageBoy?

Sorry about the hospital stay, though... That always bites. But I hope you feel better soon.

I was just in the hospital myself... Today, in fact. Cut open my leg pretty bad and had to get it stitched up. Not a great way to spend the 4th of July, holding a bandage over a big old hole in your leg. >>;;

Oh man hope your doing better! i have 5 wounds which are causing me some discomfort but ill survive!

Your right i didnt even think it through about the rebels cartoon, but at least will have some new costumes coming out of it!

The chest box is scratchbuilt by me using photos of a pageboy for reference. Thanks for your comments im having alot of fun with this project its just been alot of research rather than building and im happier when i making stuff! I will post more pictures soon!

I know what you mean. My B-wing pilot was lots and lots of research, but also about an equal amount of building. I still need to make a few changes to it...

so i figured i would update.




both vest are done. i built these according to Scott's desciption of what he saw so rather than to just copy what jeff made i built all the parts as best i could without having any pictures or refrence. also that is why i left the belly pouch and window details off. Scott's description of the two patches that go there are something i plan to figure out in the future.

I am now working on the gaiters. i will update again soon.

just noticed that in those pics i hadnt added all the greebs so here a pic with them attached.

Looking good, pilot! I like the weathering technique you used on the vest.

So . . . what did you do to achieve that weathering technique?
