Kam Solusar (Human Jedi Master)

Luke Skywalker continued Kam's training at the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. Eventually, rose to the rank of Jedi Master, and serves as headmaster of the Academy.

Parts: Head (Space Force figure), Torso (Naboo Qui-Gon Jinni), Arms (Naboo Qui-Gon Jinn), Legs (Naboo Qui-Gon Jinn), Cloak (Naboo Qui-Gon Jinn), Lightsaber (Naboo Qui-Gon Jinn).

Supplies: X-acto knife, super glue, brushes, Testors paints and Testor's Dull-Cote.

Reference: Descriptions from Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Academy trilogy, reference pictures from various Dark Horse comics.

Step One: I swapped the heads using the boiling water method and then allowed the figure to cool completely.

Step Two: Using the X-acto knife, I carefully cut away a bit of the tunic from below the belt.

Step Three: I added the binoculars to Kam's belt to give him a bit of originality and also to cover the hole in the belt of the original figure.

Step Four: I painted the figure according to the references.

Step Five: Finally, I applied a coat of Testor's Dull-Cote to protect the paint and remove the shiny appearance.
