That stupid hose

The hose was identified fairly early. You’d think that would make things easier.

It did – if you’re a UK pilot.

The screen accurate hose is an unreinforced corrugated rubber radiator hose with a 20mm interior diameter, not typically available in North America. Even in the UK, Hoseworld is the only major vendor of the product. If you’re outside the UK, your best bet is to find a Rebel Legion or RPF group order to get in on.

Poe’s hose (shush, you) also seems to have had some touch up work. In some shots, the outer rings of the hose seem to be painted silver. That detail is absent in the Vanity Fair shots but visible in some stills from the film, like this one:
