I ordered a comm pad (and helmet) from Darth Hair on Etsy. I believe this is cast in resin, and it has Velcro on the backside. I'm not sure of the purpose of the comm pad. There were a number of different, but similar, designs for the Rebel comm pads.
|I followed the paint scheme for the "Rebel" on the far left. I bought Testor's silver instead of primer grey, because I needed silver for another project.|
|This goes in the left sleeve, in a cutout pocket for the comm pad. The small top red button on the left seems to have two small white dots on it. That is actually just the flash from my phone's camera.|
I thought about trying to weather or age this piece when I was done with the detailing (I'm almost done with my chest box, which will be another post here in a day or two), but because this is such a small piece with small gaps between the "buttons," I decided to stop while I was ahead. Instead, I sprayed it with two coats of some satin poly and call it done.
