In my previous post on these guys, I mentioned I was unhappy with my repair of the elite trooper's plume. I took this opportunity to fix it. In breaking it off a bit more paint came away than I would have preferred, but this just meant I had a bit more room to drill a hole and secure a pin. The plume was then built up with plaster. A lick of paint, coat of PVA glue and a light spray varnish and all better. I was particularly happy how the pompom turned out, something that was missing on the old plume (which can be seen, discarded in the photo).
Now looking much more elite.
