    Though I will warn you, she is having computer problems and is in the middle of being snowed under, so if you want to send her specific questions I would wait till mid-April at the earliest.

    Too cool. I love the RC books, and the game. Scorch is my fav. Skirata is definitely the father figure to his "boys".

    Thanks for the link Wookiegunner!
    I like it but there are some more details to be added for accuracy IMO.
    Very cool!
    Anyone doing a Hokan suit?

    I like Darman, Niner, Atin and Fi's squad. I don't know if this is true or not, yet I think Hokan has a red helmet with purple trim.

    I'd love to see a Skirata! That would be awesome. Any progress on the suit yet?

    And anyone have a link or something to this picture? I've only seen the one where he's wearing his leather jacket.

    Nice mod for the two piece Jango! How did you attach the two parts and hide the crack?

    You are because I am just finishing a fairly accurate ESB fett and have not even given a decent start to the costume yet ( all I have is the black flight suit and the hair cut) . I figure I will star casing the goodwills for a brown leather jacket I can turn into the vest. Doing the armor is a cakewalk because that and jet pcks come fairly easy for me. I figure I will start to use snaps on this armor though. First I have to sell off all the peices I was working on for my ROTJ fett. How far are you?

    From what I've read elsewhere Skirata doesn't use a JP, so that's one less thing to worry about.
    I have the Charcoal flightsuit, I've painted up the armour, almost finished the bucket, I'm just making the flak vest at the moment.

    what are you using for a flak vest? and what about guants? I have the knife Idea down. 3 bladed and throwable....as a martial artist That describes a variant of the Sai. I saw one locally in a store it was a mini ( as apposed to what I use to practice with , which couldn't possibly be hidden in a sleeve) and the tines were very close to bladed if not actially bladed.
