Myn Donos (Human Pilot - Rogue Squadron)

Previously a sniper in the Correllian Armed Forces, Myn Donos became a young brevet Captain in the New Republic Starfighter Corps. When his entire squadron was wiped out in an ambush, Myn lost his confidence. Wedge Antilles took Myn into the newly formed Wraith Squadron, where his fellow pilots assisted Myn in regaining his previous ability. When Antilles left the Wraiths to rejoin Rogue Squadron, Myn was also assigned to the squadron. Sometime thereafter, he was promoted to the rank of Major.

Parts: Head (William Riker from Star Trek), Torso (Biggs Darklighter), Arms (Biggs Darklighter), Legs (Biggs Darklighter), Helmet (Wedge Antilles).

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

Reference: To my knowledge, there are no pictures of Myn Donos. However, Michael A. Stackpole and Aaron Allston give descriptions of him in their series of X-wing books.

Step One: First, I replaced the Biggs head with the Riker head.

Step Two: Next, I painted the helmet, as desired (Myn is Correllian and most Correllians seem to favor the color green, so I went with that). Myn's hair should be black. During his time in the Correllian Armed Forces, Myn earned the honor of wearing Correllian Bloodstripes (just like Han Solo wears). Myn's are described as black stripes down each leg of his flightsuit.

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