    Sep 25, 2006, 3:55 PM - Fett4u's Progress thread *DUW #1

    Well I thought I would post pics of my Marrow Sun Jodo Bucket. Im still waiting on my new ear caps and rangefinder to get here, so I can put them on the bucket. I used an interesting method of painting this helmet. I used spray on the orange parts and the dome. but the cheek area was brushed on and the area below the cheek and the back of the helmet were Finger painted. lol, It actually turned out to my liking. Tell me what you think, this is my second paint job I've ever done.

    I wired up a fan with an on/off switch, powered by a 9v battery. I bought all the stuff at Radioshack for about 20 bucks. The visor is the Xl model by T-visor.com, and its in place by the Tk-409 putty method. The duct tape was just there while the putty was drying to hold it in place

    Well due to some constructive criticism, I decided to fill in my dent with putty. Tommorrow it should be good and dry and I'll sand it down, and try to match the paint as close as the rest, without respraying. While I was at it, I also touched up some scratches with a sharpie

    Fett4u,

    Nice job on the Jodo helm. Can`t wait to see more progress pics. And yes, good move on filling the dent. Jodo`s helm had no dent.

    Trust me on this..

    little update*

    Today I sanded down the dent, and would have painted it but I apparently forgot to buy the green . Today I also made a spacer for my range ear cap. My cap was too close to the helmet so my Range finder wouldn't fit. So traced a template, and cut out a peice from sintra. I glues it with 2 part epoxy and filled in the sides with the putty.


    I also painted my belt I got from lionspride " Jodo Gray" Here is a pic:

    The orange is the same color as JK3's and Jodo_Kast, Krylon Pumpkin Orange. Do any of you know if this color is still in production? I went to Wal-Mart and I couldn't find any

    I finally got the much needed parts from Marrow Sun and went straight to it. I glued the range and stalk together, used a flush mount to bolt it to the side. I then glued on the cap. I Hand painted on Kill stripes and painted the dent. I couldn't find the exact color I used for the dome so the the dent area is a little off. but I "damaged" the area to make it seem appropropiate.

    Well Here's the finished Product:






    and Here's My next Jodo Project, Hand-Schaub armor:

    Update: Sprayed on the Emblem provided by JK3 ( thanks), I put bondo on the cod, added burn damage to the armor, put on the shoulder studs, and worked on my clone






    Oh and this is how I made the Cod:


    I first made the base peice out of Sintra. To add Dimension, I made a second smaller peice out of a bucket for the Center. I then curved it to my desire and glue it to the Sintra at an angle, with the the top of the Center peice being flush with the sintra. I then filled in the gap with interlocking ducktape strips. After that I added bondo over it all to get it smooth, hard, and seemingly look one peice.
