Hi everybody,
Over the last month or so I have been putting together my X wing costume.

I am completely new to costuming so have needed lots of help.

All the guys at Elstree base have been fantastic in their support and advice, so I thought I would also share my progress here.

I am getting there first of all I got my boots (German WWII replicas) and gauntlets ( Belgian Army Gauntlets)

I ordered my code cylinders from Arms On Fire, who provided amazing service, speedy delivery and a fantastic product

And an awesome helmet kit from Darren@ DWDesigns, a really fantastic kit which I love and Im getting there on the build, Im going for a design somewhere between a classic bluebird and Lukes design,

I have ordered my chest box and compad from Falcon at Eagle base so should be ready very soon.

I can't wait to submit and hopefully become a part of the fantastic community that is THE REBEL LEGION.

I really appreciate the warmth and support shown to me by everyone at Elstree Base and also her on the International Rebel Legion Forum.

May the force be with you.......

Hi Alex,
Thanks for your reply but I didn't receive an email on the 11th. I have also noticed that I have stopped receiving notifications from The Rebel Legion Forums but have no idea why.

I will send you a Pm if thats ok.

Thank you
