Luci Case (Human Pilot - Rogue Squadron)

Lieutenant Luci Case is member of Wedge Antilles's Rogue Squadron. Formerly an investigator with the Corellian Security Force (CorSec), Luci is highly skilled in covert operations and marksmanship. She is an exceptional pilot and is very well liked within the squadron.

Parts: Head (SOTE Leia), Ponytail (Jedi Duel Obi-Wan Kenobi), Torso (POTJ X-Wing Gear Luke Skywalker), Arms (POTJ X-Wing Luke Skywalker), Legs (POTJ X-Wing Gear Luke Skywalker), Helmet (POTJ X-Wing Gear Luke Skywalker).

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

Reference: None.

Step One: I began by swapping the Luke Skywalker head with the SOTE Leia head.

Step Two: Then, I used the X-acto knife to cut off the gloves and boots. They were reattached with super glue in slightly different positions (this makes the figure look a bit different from the original X-Wing Gear Luke Skywalker figure).

Step Three: I carefully filed off the bun on the back of the head and then super glued the Obi-Wan ponytail in its place.

Step Four: I painted the helmet with a different color scheme than the original. Luci's hair was painted light brown.

Step Five: I applied a light coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and allowed the figure to dry.
