Character/Costume Description

"Stay on target!"

Submitted for consideration is Gold 5
Davish "Pops" Krail from Episode IV - A
New Hope. "Pops" was part of Gold
Squadron during the Battle of Yavin. He
was a senior pilot, and known for his
coolness under pressure. He advised is
squadron mates to stabilize their rear
deflectors and to watch for enemy fighters.

When his squadron commander Captain Jon
"Dutch" Vander was under attack and near
panic during the trench run, Gold 5 advised
his commander to "stay on target." After
Darth Vader killed his commander, Red
Leader acknowledged "Pops" as the new
Gold Leader.

"Pops" was destroyed by Darth Vader after
the failure of the first attack run on the
trench. Gold 5's dying words were to warn
Red Squadron of the dangers of TIE fighters
attacking from behind in the trench.

This costume was previously approved
without a helmet "B. Dan. E." This
application adds the helmet and
authorization of the face character, Gold 5.
Note that age and body type are similar to
the actor, Graham Ashley. The hairstyle is
unknown due to the helmet, but likely very
short.

The helmet was made by Jeff "Darth Hair"
Rodriguez. Thank you to Danny Chen for
the advice and assistance.

Please note that the chinstrap is not
fastened as is depicted in Episode IV.

As always, I am happy to provide additional
photos and answer any additional
questions.
