The original 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 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.
