    Alrightie suckas, just like Kim said -- we're gonna try having a bunch of pilots ready for the whole doohickie they're having at the museum. :D Yeah, we're nuts.

    I'll be posting reference material here.

    Orange Flight Suits -- Becca's found a couple places that have them in stock, and I found a few places online that we can order from, too. They range between $30-40 depending on size.

    Vests -- Reference material coming. There's a few people that can work on these. Material cost seemed minimal.

    Lunchboxes -- I'm working on the molds and will be vaccing them hopefully before the weekend. I'm also going to gather everything we need to make complete kits.

    Helmets -- Kim, Jeff, and I are working on that. I might just spike up my hair and not worry about making me one. Don't wanna mess with the doo, yo. LOL.

    Misc. Bitz -- In the process of locating all of it.

    Other places to check for stuff -- [link=http://www.dewbackwing.com] http://www.dewbackwing.com [/link]

    And the "Unleashed X-Wing/Snowspeeder Pilot Luke" is nicely detailed and good for reference, too.

    EDIT: Added classification tag...

    I wouldn't mind doin' an X-wing rig, but I won't be at the WOTR event itself, if that's what these are prepping for.

    I think it would be closer to saying it's hardly done. I've got most of the pieces, they just aren't in what one could call a coheseve state. :D

    That's OK. Try being a guy, at Hobby Lobby, with an assortment of strange fabrics and other odds and ends that never fit together, and having the lady at the counter give you a funny look and say, "WHAT are YOU making?"

    Nice X-Wing Pilot Tutorial -- [link=http://pub23.ezboard.com/fpropreplicasfrm39.showMessage?topicID=384.topic] http://pub23.ezboard.com/fpropreplicasfrm39.showMessage?topicID=384.topic [/link]

    It doesn't really matter if they have arm pockets or not because it probably won't be the right type of pocket and you'll need to replace it.

    SC - I need to get you the pattern images with measurments for the Flak Vest. I'll send 'em when I get home.

    JP...are they similar to the 2 flak vest things I posted near the top of this thread?

    The leather store finally knows who I am. This last excursion they just asked, "Ooo...what kind of armor this time?" [face_laugh]
