"...and though little is known of the nature of Earhart's recruitment by Howard Hughes, a popular story states that upon locating her and her disabled craft Hughes told Earhart he had come both to rescue her and offer her a job. Insisting she needed no rescue, Hughes replied "Never the less, madame, you are rescued. Now let us discuss the job."

Though never formally a member of the United States Army Astro Corps, Earhart is believed to be one of the main reasons the Axis were never able to establish a strong lunar foothold. Though Hughe's experimental spacecraft were still in the infancy of their development, her innovations in exosphere combat maneuvering were able to deter the seemingly unstoppable Uberzepps of the Axis lunar supply lines.

Earhart would eventually head and train Hughe's all woman Lunar Wing, and be one of the last living beings allowed to visit his isolated "Tranquility Island" on the moon.

Earhart currently acts as Captain of the Oroboros, second only to Lincoln himself in the groups' chain of command. Whether her previous ties to Hughes and his mechanical empire will pose a problem remains to be seen..."

I tried to combine the silver space suits of the Mercury program with the weird time-travel suits from 12 monkeys.

Amelia Earhart
ROC Agent Helix - Body
ROC Viper(various) - Gloves
Star Wars "Snow Bunny" Padme - Head
Clone Wars Space Suit Anikan - Helmet

Alt History Lincoln and Hitler were all the excuse I needed to finally get around to doing some other characters and alt-history concepts I've been toying with for a long time. I may go back and add a bit of gold or brass detailing and give her some goggles on her cap.

That's great! The suit is a perfect blend of tech and retro styling.

very cool, as are all the figures in this theme. You know what would put it over the top in terms of selling who it is though? An aviator's scarf. maybe paint one up from classic Ms. Marvel? goggles on the leather helmet would also sell it, but would raise the question of necessity in light of the domed helmet.

Thanks guys! I was really proud of it considering I sat down to part it out and ended up doing the whole thing yesterday.

drbindy, I'd been thinking the same thing regarding the scarf. Will have to give it a shot now.

I'm beginning to wonder if she really even needs that helmet. Might have to see if she just looks better with the goggles and scarf, dunno.

I agree, you did a great job capturing a retro-future look for her. Really clever idea, with great color selection and painting.

I kind of like the helmet. Gives a Cosmonaut feel, which I think sells the theme. But I could still see goggles and scarf for style, or habit, when the dome isn't needed.

As with the others, this is well worth copying. I'd love to see a pic with the helmet on too.

Part choices are pretty simple here, but painting, execution, and storyline work so well. Nice work Dan!

The goggles might be for sun screen from solar flares or dark side of the moon night vision. The helmet only protects her from the environment, it does nothing for her eyes. Real astronauts and aviators have those slide down visors to combat the sun.

Awesome!

At first I thought your title said "Cosmonaut," which had me thinking all alternate history of a different sort (and now I want to see someone use a similar recipe for a female Oktober Guard cosmonaut), but I wasn't at all disappointed to find out I was mistaken.
