    She does not have lights on her range finder but that doesn't mean that you cant add them to your gear.

    Remember that you need space inside the rangefinder to fit the lights. I don't know if skirata arms makes their range finders hollow, but that would be a requirement.

    yes i know their rangefinders are not hollow, but it comes as an separate piece and is easy to modify, im thinking of making it hollow by drilling a hole in the rangefinder so it is space for the lights. But i will Think a bit more of this if i should have lights or not

    A hollow range finder could be easily made using pepakura templates as a pattern to cut styrene plastic to the right shape and super gluing it together.

    Hey Fria, I don't think you will have any issues with sizing. The Exterior dimensions are scale for women but, the interior is very roomy. I wear a Boba Fett 1:1 + scale helmet (almost 3" wider than the Night Owl overall) and I can easily put the Night Owl on with room for padding. I know you had commented on my post about "The Owlet". No worries there, you're not getting that one (that is avery small scale for young kids like 4-8 years old), you're getting the regular one

    As for the RF... you would probably want to check with your GML and (if you plan to join there as well) the Personnel Officer at Mercs. Since there are no lights in the references, it likely may not be an approvable addition to the costume.
