Biker Scout (built 2001)
The motivation for building this costume was again a Don Post Helmet,
which I bought. Then, I built the Biker Blaster from wood and metall.
Black pants and a black thin turtle-neck collar pullover were no problem.
Then I copied from my Stormtrooper armour the armparts, kneeplates. The
breast- and backplates, I copied and shortened and modelled it different
according to the pictures of Episode 6. From a tool-belt, I took the two
bags and repainted it. Additional, cause the bags were open on the top,
I made caps to close the bag. The caps of the bags, I made from white
painted Jeans fabric. A belly-band, which goes arround the belly and down
through the legs to the back. I made it from a specially crunched-made
fabric. Finally I built the lower leg-holster . Then I added white boots.
Ready was the Biker Scout.
Now, I maybe should build a Speeder Bike for me...
