figure: Padmé Amidala - Coruscant Attack
For transforming Senator
Amidala in Admiral Daala I had to carve away or cut off the belt
buckle, gloves, parts of the waistcoat, the button in the back and
the belt bags with a knife. The leg hinges were stabilized with
Stabilit Express. Because Admiral Daala is always shown with voluminous
hair, the hair-style from Amidala was a bit too tight and I had
to enhance it. Here the air -drying modelling mass from Eberhard
Faber was a good solution for the problem. From the same mass I
made the rank insignia which I stuck with superglue to the uniform.
Afterwards I painted the figure with modelling colours from Revell
and cut a little belt buckle from polystyrene, painted it and attached
it with superglue.
