X-Wing Pilot Constan'ze
A good friend,
Constanze, asked me to build her as a female X-Wing Pilot customized
bought a Leia - Bespin Escape, took her out of the bubble and started
to carve the trouser legs into the shape of boots. Then, I took
the "Brezels"-hairstyle and replaced it according to the
look of Constanze with self drying modelling mass.
Then, I took a copy with "Stabilit Express" with a negative-silicon
form from the chest box.
These Form, Thomas already built once time a go, when he built the
pilot figure of Nomi Darklighter. Then, I stuck also with "Stabilit
Express" the chest box onto the figure.
Doing this, I even had success that the tube remained. Next, I made
the gloves. Also here, I used "Stabilit Express". I put
a little bit around the lower arms, left the figure for some minutes
with arms straight forward, while the Stabilit Express slowly concentrated
at the lower arm edge, without dropping down. Finally, it hardened
and looked indeed as typical pilot gloves. At the end, I modelled
the signal-ammunitions-bandolier at the left leg (some pilots also
wear it at the right leg).
smooth part could begin: The painting.
First, I painted the hair in a tone of gold blond, then the white
overall into orange. Then, boots and gloves black, chest box with
tube grey, buttons at the chest box blue and white, flak-shirt white,
bands between the legs and the belt grey, signal-ammunitions-bandolier
and belt-buckle silver.
At the end,
I customized a Luke X-Wing Card, including a Force File, took Luke
out of the bubble and put Constan ´ze into the bubble.
I left Luke's helmet in the bubble and stuck the bubble again on
