There are a few options:

1. Rubies - It is approvable, but not recommended. They are a very bad version of what you are wanting to do.


2. There are a couple of oversea makers of kits. These are kits that need to be fully assembled. More info when I find it.

3. I am making a one piece helmet that only needs the mohawk front piece, visor and chin guard attached. These are going to be test molded in Feb so you can all have a look then. Price TBC.

Flak Vest

There are two options:

1. Costume base. http://www.thecostumebase.com/rebels-forces/

This is the cheapest option but also the most annoying option. You have to heavily mod things to get this approved. You need to fix the ribs, add buckles and at times modify stiching.

****Please hold off on ordering from Wampa Wear at the moment. Stormraven just received this morning on the JRS forums that people should not promote them at this time. Something has gone on. I will leave the entry here for the time being though.****

2. Wampa Wear. http://www.wampawear.com/?p=1411 ((((DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THEM AT THE MOMENT!!!!))))

This is a lot more expensive but it is a lot more accurate and also needs little to no modded from what I have found out.

Orange flight suit

There are two options:

1. Costume base. http://www.thecostumebase.com/rebels-forces/

Minimal alterations and almost ready to go. During the approval process you will get into minor details that will need to be fixed.

2. Bisley work wear. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Coveralls-Ove...7e8&_uhb=1

Jediprincess says that she and others that can mod stuff only need the one suit to make this approvable. You must asked such skilled seamstresses what they will charge you to make the suit approvable. Chocolates are more than likely a good bribery tool Heart

Chest box and metal bits

These can be purchased from Mark Dickson of Hoth Base in Victoria. To contact Mark find "Mark Dickson" on FB and when you friend him just send a message that Apok sent you so he doesn't think it is a random.

Chest box complete is $65

Arm tools $25

Leg flares $50 (Holder not included)

Belt flares $15 (Belt not included)

Belt buckle $15

There are other makers out there, but this helping a local out and also he does quality stuff. It's what I have and it is great.


April Storm is doing great work with here 3D printer. She can print any style of Commpad. There are 4. Price $20 USD.

Go to her Etsy store:


Use promocode RLOFFICIALMEMBERAUS to get free domestic postage on all orders.

Harness and Belt

I have about 50 meters of this material available for $3 a meter. You will need about 4 to 5 meters for your harness and belt.

Jediprincess has the templates for the harness and again cash and chocolates might be used to bribe her.

PM me is you want some.


A few options:

1. Nassik found these. http://www.leathermystics.com/gauntlets/gauntlets.html

The look good and should be approvable, but I have not seen them in our base.

2. These are from the Jolly Roger Squadron forums (yep a Bothan got the info for me)


You will have to sign up for to their forums to see this thread but they are definitely approvable.

Leg Flare Holders

They can be black or khaki.

A couple of options:

1. Evilbay. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/281240190181?...1423.l2649

2. Jediprincess has the template for this. She may do them as a run.


The boots are German Jackboots.


Evilbay is probably the best place to get these cheap. A group order is probably the best place to go for these.

Well that is all of what you need to be a pilot. If any of you want to do a run off various parts feel free to do so. I will have helmet pics up next month of what I am going to sell, but please feel free to buy other makers if you want. I won't be offended at all.

I hope to see you all in the skies soon.
