Tubes (Benthic ) Solo Movie WIP - **CLEARED**

Post by Krayt 52 » Tue Feb 12, 2019 11:29 am

Since I saw the adverts for the Solo Movie I was drawn to the Benthic outfit.

I have an Edrio already so I was able to use thehand covers, shoulder pads, Tunic, Trousers, belt (slightly altered) and printed a new head as my Edrio was just a wee bit too small.

I sourced a long leather coat from Ebay and after removing the lining and altering it, sprayed grey undercoat over it. It was then sanded to give the weathered look. The Edrio shoulder pads were then attached with Velcro. ... 7.png?dl=0

I sourced a square of material from Ikea and made a basic triangle, attaching Velcro at two of the tips to form a sand cowl. I haven’t seen how the cowl looks at the back so I winged it.

This was then just wrapped over my head and the Velcro attached at the back under the material. ... 0.jpg?dl=0

The visor is a mirrored motor bike bubble visor, which I cut down and bent usig a heat gun to fit. I used magnets attached inside the helmet and on the visor to attach the whole this to the helmet.

That means I can use it with or without.

The tooth necklace, I made from wooden dowel and inch by ½ inch wood. These were all cut to length and then sanded into shape. A coat of paint some wash and then a layer of sealer was added to finish them off. ... 7.jpg?dl=0

The smoke grenade on the belt was made from a salt container, some plasticard and a split ring. ... 2.jpg?dl=0

I made the bracers from a piece of material which has the leather strap wrapped round and glued in place. This gives me the option of removing them and using the coat for a Rogue One Benthic

The balster I made from a length of scaffolding plank and some tubing I had. I cut and shaped the plant then carved the symbol onto it, stained it with mahogany stain. Sight is made of plasticard and various bit and pieces

A bit of paint to the tubes and added the torch and leather and cloth wrapping. ... 1.jpg?dl=0

The boots are my Orca Bays that I use for my Shore Trooper and Scariff Marine, and finish off the outfit.

I have sent in app pics so just waiting to see about clearance. ... 2.jpg?dl=0

Really lovely build, hope you don't mind I put the pics in so you can scroll through easier.

The only thing I can see, that they may pull up is that it could do with a little more more weathering.

Good luck with clearence :)
