Nrin Vakil (Quarren Pilot - Rogue Squadron)

Nrin Vakil joined Rogue Squadron immediately following the Tatooine Campaign. He flew many missions with them, becoming a very close friend of Ibtisam. Nrin was so deeply affected by her death, that he left the squadron. He later returned to the squadron as a Major, after the defeat of Warlord Zsinj.

Parts: Head (vintage Squidhead), Torso (Biggs Darklighter), Arms (Biggs Darklighter), Legs (Biggs Darklighter), Helmet (Wedge Antilles).

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

Reference: I used descriptions from the books and pictures of him from the comics by Dark Horse. The Rogue Squadron Handbook by Dark Horse provides detailed pictures of the artwork on most Rogue helmets.

Step One: First, I removed the Biggs head and glued on the one from the vintage Squidhead.

Step Two: Next, I painted the head a light orange-brown. Nrin has some darker brown spots on the top of his head (see the comics for exact placement).

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