R1 RFT MP build

Post by ThermalSoarer » Sat Mar 10, 2018 1:29 pm

Well, since this is still in progress I might as well re-post what I've done so far. I've got basically everything now, I just need to make a couple of tweaks to the helmet and I'm done. Here is a list of all the parts I've got:

Helmet: Purchased from Chris Gardiner through Facebook
Shirt: Surplus RAF shirt bought off Ebay converted as necessary
Vest: Purchased from Philonius on RL.com forums
Armband: Cotton trousers found in charity shop converted as necessary with t-shirt transfer used for "MP" text
Belt: Homemade leather belt
Buckle: Tandy leather buckle cut to shape
Holster: Homemade leather holster
Blaster: Repainted Hasbro DH-17
Trousers: US BDU trousers bought off Ebay and converted as necessary
Boots: Jack boots bought from Epic Militaria for my OT X-Wing costume and re-used for this costume

I think I need to take a little bit more off the black part of the shield bit on the front of the helmet in the centre to better match the movie, and I also need to drill 2 more holes so I can put screws in to secure it all and, again, match the movie.

Looking good to me, great work!. The only thing i was going to pick up was the oversized pockets, but on double checking the CRLs these are an optional extra :)

This is great work William, lots of nice detail here. I really must get around to redoing my RFT vest.

Best of luck with your clearance submission!

Never thought of mentioning this when I saw you at MCM. How did you get on?
