Merrik Wonstan (Human Mechanic - Rogue Squadron)

Merrik Wonstan is one of several mechanics assigned to assist Koyi Komad in keeping Rogue Squadron's snubfighters up and running.

Parts: Head (Space Force figure), Torso (AT-ST Driver), Arms (Kyle Katarn), Legs (AT-ST Driver), Belt (Corps! figure), Toolbox (Corps! figure).

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

Reference: I created this figure based on pictures of the Rogue Squadron mechanics from Dark Horse's X-Wing: Rogue Squadron comics.

Step One: I began by swapping the AT-ST Driver's head and arms with the new ones I'd selected.

Step Two: The coveralls were painted tan and the boots were painted dark brown.
Step Three: The toolbelt and toolbox were taken from a Corps! figure. The toolbelt was painted dark brown and the toolbox was painted grey.

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