Below is my second custom submitted to the Tank - it took me some time to make, and caused me alot of stress, but it came out better than I hoped! I have to thank a guy I think we all know - Alyosha - for making this whole thing possible! : )
I present: ZARANA!
I started out with this custom meant to be as close to the original as I could, but I realized in time, we'll get a Zarana. It might not be the best, but she'll show up sooner or later. So, with that knowledge, I adapted my plan and went a different direction - Resolute Style Zarana!
She's got a bit more realistic spin to her, trying to get as close to a modern punk look without going overboard, thus the darker colors, shiny/leather belt with studs, and pale skin. The traditional pink had to be there, and her faded orange highlights were a must. I ever went with a less feminine foot to achieve those spurs she had on back in the day. Finally, the kneepads are a combo of Cade Skywalker's kneepads and a worthless Breaker kneecap, cast into one piece.
Head : Alyosha cast
Torso : Darth Talon
Belt : DVD Pack Snake Eyes
Biceps : Darth Talon
Forearms : Emperor Palpatine Comic figure
Thighs ; Cobra Eel
Knees : Cast knee joint from Cade Skywalker kneepad
Lower Legs : Darth Talon
Feet: Crimson Guard
Weapon : Destro Suitcase pistol
Thanks so much for looking, guys!

Wow! To be honest I was never a big fan on Dreadnoks. But after seeing what you did, I am really impressed.
This may seem strange for me to say, but that is one hot piece of plastic you got there.
She is amazing. You did some awesome work.

I doesn't look too Resolute imho, though this isn't bad.
The kneepads work great, i really like how it looks.
Can i use it for a pic? I was going to do a drawing of her, but i hadn't a clear idea. Looking at this...well, i don't have to think anything else

I love her! Shes awsome, I can not stand the other hair style she has! Nice work! Give her some face paint like war paint or a scar!

Hahaha, aside from the fact that that "shirt" would not put up with any action at all, I love this. The sculpting and painting are great. Seamless. Well done.
