Krillin (Snivvian Pilot - Thunder Squadron)

Ensign Krillin is a B-Wing pilot assigned to Thunder Squadron under the command of Ten Nunb. He is an excellent pilot and would be on his way up the promotion ladder if it weren't for his ability to attract trouble anytime he isn't flying.

Parts: Head (Takeel), Torso (Ten Numb), Arms (Ten Numb), Hands (Takeel), Legs (Ten Nunb), Helmet (Ten Nunb).

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

Reference: I wanted to create a couple of B-Wing pilots to flesh out Ten Nunb's Thunder Squadron as background characters in a hangar diorama. Krillin is the first of them. I used reference stills from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi to get the uniform correct.

Step One: First, I removed the Ten Nunb head and replace it with the Takeel head.

Step Two: Next, I cut off the Ten Nunb hands and replaced them with the Takeel hands.

Step Three: I cut one side of the facemask so that it looks like he has it disconnected. The area near the cut was trimmed to look like a buckle and then painted silver.

Step Four: I painted the flightsuit red. Parts of the chest controls were touched up with different metallic colors. The gloves were painted black.

Step Five: After the paint was dry, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and reduce shine.
