Imperial Patrol speeder and Pilot from Solo.

It's not screen accurate as I have used left over materials in my parts and material boxes. The detail on the speeder were done using cardboard, plastic card, plastic rod, foam board, old head phone cord, old electrical cable, 28mm gaming pieces and left over Bandai SW kit parts.

The trooper is a mix of Bandai's Stormtrooper/Shoretrooper and Deathtrooper, The base is foam board and then painted and once both the figure and speeder were done they were painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints and Pastel chalks.

Another nice one. How did you do the fabric on the thighs and the spacer under the brim?

that's a fantastic piece of scratch-building and figure altering, it looks brilliant, well done mate.
