Letís say I like doing pilots ....

Imperial (501st) approved:
181st pilot
ANH TIE

Building:
Imperial Fel
Rebel Fel

Plus,
X-Wing pilot with mix of wedge & luke elements-gray front panels, mohawk sides in orange, & more details
Maybe: Wedge
Then, plan on Hoth version (need jacket source!)

Future:
Mando pilot

Iím waiting on:
Helmet guts from Darth Hair for 2 helmets
White vest from Custom Props in Argentina
2 chest box kits
Small bucket bits from J Hill

Still need to order-
Metal flares from Elvis.

I need to make (have stiff, but need to get specific measurements):
Black leg flare wrap
Olive flare wrap
Light gray belt
Darker gray belt

As for helmets, I have a blank white one. I was thinking of just makingba canon character from the OT. But, there is certain flexibilty with making one that looks real close, but not identical. That way, at in-character events, I can talk about a fictionsl character bavkground- ie-> leaving thr Empire, joining the Rebellion. I can also be serious or silly.
As Wedge, I need to stay serious, as he is a serious, no non-sense person in the films (& later, now legends, comics & novels). Still, I love Wedge.
So, Iíll do my non-canon helmet first, then either buy (talking to a pilot now) or build a Wedge helmet later.

Hi! Welcome! I don't know much about building pilots but the X-wing novels will always hold a special place in my heart. Good luck with your build!

The white one is mostly done (as an OT-style custom/unique), base paint part anyways. Need to decal, weather, and add all the guts.
Fel one is just awaiting guts.

Both kits are looking like mid-late January approval timeframe.

PM me or contact me by facebook (John Wages) for discussion, advise, or images. I havenít gotten post-photobucket image posting down yet (only can use a phone for now)

Update-
Helmet shell mostly done, painted & waiting on decals
Waiting on guts from Darth Hair

Plan to order another kit from Hair to make a Wedge bucket

Waiting on Fel box, which should come complete

Waiting on regular chestbox, which will need to be built.

I wave all the material for harnesses & both light & darker gray belts, plus a black leg wrap (thought had enough for an olive one, but .... no.

Iím waiting for a response from a certain imp that looks like a rock god to respond with an invoice for the flares & a 3rd x-tool (have 2).

The white vest is on its way from Argentina.

Have both orange & Fel suits, boots, gloves, & a compad to repaint in white/etc. The cold is delaying that.

Sounds like good progress. I finished my Mando Bucket on New Years Eve! Now on to soft goods!
