Many New Republic troops serve as security personnel aboard the many vessels of the Fleet, as well as dirtside installations. Security Specialist Purnill Montfurth is assigned to the New Republic cruiser Defiance, as a member of Captain Marcus Jesper's security detail.
Parts: Head (PotF2 Arvel Crynyd), Torso (Cantina Han Solo), Arms (Cantina Han Solo), Legs (Cantina Han Solo), Helmet (PotF2 Rebel Fleet Trooper), Blaster (Cantina Han Solo).
Supplies: X-acto knife, file or emery board, super glue, brushes, Polly Scale paints and Testors Dull-Cote.
Reference: This figure was loosely based on the Rebel security troopers seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Step One: First, I swapped the heads using the boil-n-pop method and then allowed the figure to cool completely.
Step Two: Next, I cut off the top of Arvel's head and glued the Rebel Fleet Trooper helmet on.
Step Three: I painted the figure according to references. I added some detail to the blaster, as well.
Step Four: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and reduce the shine.
Wish I was there!
