Inyri Forge (Human Pilot - Rogue Squadron)

Inyri Forge was the younger sister of a Rogue Squadron pilot who had been killed in combat. Despite her less than honorable past, Inyri was given the opportunity to follow in her sister's footsteps. She joined Rogue Squadron following the taking of Coruscant, and remained with them through the end of the long-running war against Ysanne Isard. At that time, she was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. This is my second version of this character, and while the first version was a lot more work, this one is far more accurate. Inyri will eventually end up as part of my on-going Rogue Squadron hangar bay diorama.

Parts: Head (25th Anniversary Scarlett), Everything else (Dorovio Bold).

Supplies: Dremel, paintbrushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: I used descriptions from the X-Wing books by Michael A. Stackpole, specifically Solo Command.

This entire custom is a simple head-swap. I removed the old head and replaced it with the Scarlett head. In order to fit properly, the new head required a bit of hollowing with the Dremel. Once it was on, I repainted her hair (Stackpole describes Inyri as having long dark brown hair). Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and reduce the shine.
