low-rank officer on Yavin 4 (built
Yes, I admit that this
title sounds stupid. But the secondary literature says nothing about
So, I invent that title.
If somebody of you find somewhere the official name, please write
For this figure, which
I build four times for my "Yavin Ceremony" Diorama, I
choose four "Imperial Officer" from the 80s. First, I
cut the peak away, which was in a too vertical angle for what I
wanted to build and cut the entire cap round. Then, I cut a 1mm
width and 10mm long slot into the head above the eyes, and then
I took a washer, bent it a little bit round and placed it with Stabilit
Express into the slot. Then, I cut the boots into half-shoes and
cut the bulges of the sides of the trousers away. At the breast,
I cut the code-cylinders away, also the asymmetric row of buttons.
Finally, I abraded all cuts and painted the figure.
The cap, which now had like in the movie the look of a Base cap,
was painted khaki, The overall was painted dark grey down to the
half-shoes, Hands were painted skin-colour (before, they were black
gloves). Three of the four soldiers got different beards, and then
the figures were ready.
