Since I strictly go with WYSIWYG and Leia has a gear upgrade in the form of a portable scanner in my list, I need to adjust her mini accordingly. I also wanted to give her a helmet.

So, the first thing to do was to take off a helmet from an unused Rebel Trooper and prepare it, and also to scratch-build a portable scanner. For the scanner, I used the scanner used by Han Solo in the first act of The Empire Strikes Back when he searched for Luke on Hoth.

The scanner is build from a block of plastic card which I carved and cut into shape, and pieces of fiberoptic cable for the antennas as well as the dials and buttons on the device. The build consists of 10 seperate elements.

With the helmet and portable scanner prepared, the next step was to convert the mini of Leia into a new pose and modify the top of her head so the helmet neatly fits over it. I changed the left leg to be a bit more straight, the right arm with the pistol as well as the position of the left hand holding the scanner. The pose of the head was also changed so that she now checks her scanner while giving the troops a sign with her pistol.

The first picture is of the mini straight out of the box, and the four pictures following that is my conversion:
