    Thats awesome. Nice nice job. What kinda jump suit did you go with?
    Thanks.
    Right now I just have a generic gray one that I weathered, but its on its way out. I want to get one from SGB, I have seen his stuff and it looks pretty good

    Nice kit Fett4u, very well done. I had no idea there were so many Jodo's around here. Speaking of projects, I really want to create something similar to Jodo_Kast's grenades or ammo magazine on the holder that looks to be on a small square piece of leather on the right/front hip. What did you use to make those grenades or whatever? I've been trying to come up with a design that's fairly original, but I'm drawing a blank. I've tried medicine bottles, empty acrylic paint bottles, and the like with little to no success-so I need some inspiration. Can anyone throw me a bone on this? I'd appreciate it...

    I haven't done those yet, shoot Jodo Kast 3 a pm he knows. As far as I am concerned he is the proffessor of Jodo 101, and I am lowly student

    Fett4U,

    Looking fantastic!! Just an FYI...The girth is brown. I tried dying mine and had zero luck, so I spray painted it and it turned out fantastic!!
    Unfortunately, this is the only pic I have of it up close...


    But anyway, please let me know when you are ready to start the belt accessories. I can tell you where to get the parts to the whole belt I made.


    Keep up the good work. I am very impressed.

    Thanks JK3, I'll be sure to pick up some brown paint on my next Wally world run. Well today I finished off my scratch made boots. They are not the best in the world, but its hard to find boba boots when you are on a budget and your feet are size 14+. I bought some cheap chucks from wal-Mart. I painted them added black canvas " closure flaps". I found some metal around the house that was pliable, glued on nails, and voila! Toe spikes. They only costed my about 15 bucks, materials, shoes and all. I also started work on my Knee armor today


    They need a little touch up on the glue spots

    Eric..

    Get off your butt and build a Fett....or a custom. Or I will drive the 4 minutes it takes to get to your house and steal your Donkey!!!

    Fett4U.. I would greatly shorten your toe spikes. Being that long is dangerous to yourself and others. The ones on most of the boots I`ve seen (including mine) are 75% shorter than those spikes.

    Just my .02 cents.

    Here is an update on the knees:



    I got them back from bondo, sanded them, painted and weathered them. I also attached the elastic and velcro, now I need some darts. Oh and I for got to mention the armor is attached with Industrial strength Wal-Mart Velcro, and Wal-mart Magnets. I added some magnets today around the corners for a tighter fit than in the first trial wear.

    Re: Fett4u's Progress thread *DUW

    Woooow! That's blurry! Not to worry though, cause if I shake my head fast enough whilst staring at the screen the headache I get doesn't seem to help one bit!

    The rest of the pics look good though, nice progress on the armour.

    Re: Fett4u's Progress thread *DUW

    Well I trooped for the first time last weekend in my incomplete Jodo. I did a parade with the Southern Outpost, and it was a blast! I got to march next to Boussh and an awesome ESB Boba. I don't know if there are any pics, but there is a video somewhere. It gave me a good idea of stuff to add/fix. I definitely need a Helmet liner, Gaunt pads. I was surprised nothing fell off mid-parade. Anyway, My project for today is the building of a Jet pack using Lisa Fett's tutorial. Wish me luck, after Im done with class I might have some progress shots up.

    Ok here is the Jet pack Ive been scratchbuidling. Its made out of Styrofoam, Foam-core board, and masking tape. Im almost done with the body construction. Next is Paper Mache, Bondo and then paint. i am using a combination of Lisa Fett's plans,Wizard of flight templates, and a little free hand guessing. This is a fun little project, and it has only cost me 30 bucks so far, and at the moment its so light I can stick it on with IS Velcro. I even modified the rocket to resemble Jodo's from the comics. Its not dead on but close, What do you guys think?

    Damn nice work!!! Trust me, finish the fins on the rocket top. It will make it look more complete.

    If you need reference pics...I can post pics of mine if you need to.

    I finished the scratchbuilt Jet Pack today. Its pretty ugly, but looks decent from about 10 ft, lol. I've already started Version2. The good thing about it, opposed to a FG one, Its really really light. I got my Backplate from ASOK last night. It has been painted, and Im putting new velcro on the vest. Now I have everything. and I just need to make those belt accessories. JK3, what did you make them out of?
