Mirax Terrik (Human Intelligence Operative)

Mirax Terrik is the daughter of the notorious smuggler Booster Terrik and a childhood friend of Wedge Antilles. The two of them ran into each other when Mirax helped Wedge and his Rogue Squadron out of a jam on the planet Mrlsst. Mirax worked for her father as a dealer in rare antiques and fine art. Over the years, she continued to cross paths with the Rogues and eventually married Corran Horn. Using her profession as a cover, Mirax often served as a Special Operative, performing intelligence work for the New Republic. Mirax and Corran have two young children, Valin and Jysella, who are currently training to be Jedi Knights.

Parts: Head (Mara Jade), Torso (Mara Jade), Arms (Ewok Celebration Leia), Legs (Mara Jade), Vest (Cantina Han Solo), Blaster (any).

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

Reference: Dark Horse Comics' X-Wing Rogue Squadron: The Phantom Opposition.

Step One: First, I assembled them using the boil-n-pop method and then allowed the figure to cool completely.

Step Two: Using the X-acto knife, I trimmed down the hood around Mara's neck, sanding as necessary.

Step Three: Next, I put the vest on the figure. You might decide to glue the vest to the torso to get a better fit. It is important for the vest to blend well with the arms, so that it looks like a jacket with sleeves.

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

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