Koyi Komad (Twi'lek Mechanic - Rogue Squadron)

Koyi Komad was a student at the University on Mrrlst when Rogue Squadron ran into trouble there. She assisted them and later, after graduating, joined the squadron as their chief mechanic and remained with them for many years.

Parts: Head (Oola), Torso (Amanda Kirby from Jurassic Park 3), Arms (Amanda Kirby from Jurassic Park 3), Legs (Amanda Kirby from Jurassic Park 3), Grease gun (Episode One Anakin Skywalker).

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

Reference: There are several good pictures of Koyi in various issues of Dark Horse's X-Wing: Rogue Squadron comics.

Step One: I removed the existing head using the boil-n-pop method and then attached the Oola head.

Step Two: I changed the angle of her left arm a bit and filed off the "torn" effect on her left pant leg. The rest of the figure was not modified.

Step Three: I glued two thinly sliced pieces of plastic tube to the headband to make Koyi's welding goggles.

Step Four: I painted her coveralls dark tan and the boots dark brown. The skin was painted a medium flesh tone.

Step Five: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote.
