Captain Ranek Yorr (Imperial Pilot)

Captain Ranek Yorr was a member of the 181st Fighter Squadron at the Battle of Endor. A former member of the Imperial Demonstration Team, Yorr flew test flights during the development of various TIE prototypes. He is credited with 24 combat victories. It is unknown whether Captain Yorr survived the Battle of Endor.

Parts: Head (Captain Piett), Torso (Grand Moff Tarkin), Arms (Grand Moff Tarkin), Legs (Grand Moff Tarkin).

Supplies: X-acto knife, file, emery board, brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: Picture from the Decipher CCG card.

Step One: First, I replaced the Tarkin head with the new one.

Step Two: Using the X-Acto knife, I carefully trimmed the rank squares down to a total of four (two red and two blue). I also trimmed one rank cylinder from each side of his uniform.

Step Three: I painted the figure according to the reference pictures.

Step Four: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and reduce the shine.
