Anakin Solo
(Expanded Universe)

Here is my first work which I made for somebody else than me. I made it for my friend
Constanze, who asked me to build the Solo kids for her.

The original figure: Anakin - Naboo Pilot

Again I had to think, which figure would be suitable probably the best one for Anakin Solo. The figure of choice was an Anakin Skywalker. For the appearance of the young Jedi I used the Topps Star Wars Finest Trading Cards Specials as model. I carved the bang of the bobbed hair from the origin figure with the tinkering knife away. Subsequently, I formed a new hair-style by means of the self drying modelling mass, which I structured with a pin and painted with model construction colour. Now I had to work on the legs, because I wanted smooth boots and not the pleated structure of the half-stockings. With the tinkering knife I cleared carefully the pleats away. Afterwards I smoothed the whole with a fine nail-file. The entire figure got thereafter, according to the Trading Card, a new colour likewise. Now a lightsabre hilt, which I found in the depot of my husband and the youngest offspring of Han and Leia was ready.
