Rebelkarboonit and I decided to join Michael (MHG) in building Germany's first A-Wing flight squad Wink

So we are getting helmets from ywingfighter and flightsuits from Lokrin.
We will either build boxes ourselves with MHG's greeblies or get a box from Robert.
Anybody who can help with a source or pattern for gaiters, bib and flakvest?

Any other help is also appreciated Smile

Cheers
Dr. Morbius

The box looks perfect.... who made it?

Glad you're doing the ejection straps the right way, as they are in the OT Costumes book Smile

I wasn't satisfied with how the super white polypropylene bands looked. Judging by the costumes book I am also sure that what they used was cotton band. Off-white or light tan...seemed more like the real deal.

So I replaced them and here's the result now:



Really big improvement!!!
