Jerec (Human Dark Jedi)

Jerec is the central villian in the PC game Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight. He led a group of Dark Jedi who attempted to gain control of the Lost Valley of the Jedi. He was the last of the group to be defeated by Kyle Katarn.

Parts: Head (Chancellor Valorum), Torso (TIE Fighter Pilot), Arms (Jedi Duel Darth Maul), Legs (Deluxe Darth Maul), Skirt (Mace Windu), Shoulder pads (Prince Xizor), Lightsaber (any red bladed lightsaber).

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

Reference: Illustrations from the Dark Forces: Jedi Knight graphic novel or still photos from the PC game.

Step One: I assembled the necessary parts using the boiling water method and then allowed the figure to cool completely.

Step Two: Next, I sanded down the hair to give the figure a more receded hairline.

Step Three: Then I removed the shoulder pads from the Xizor figure and glued them to Jerec's shoulders.

Step Four: I removed the skirt from the Mace Windu figure and glued it to the Jerec figure.

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

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