    I like your borden connecter, nice touch
    It's the small details that count.
    Nice job so far, will be good to see your final. I have an old DP helmet that I have been thinking about "kast-ing" for a while now.

    Really impressive. Most of my Jodo is shipping now so i'll be using this thread as reference in the near future.

    Your armor scarring looks awesome! May I ask how you did that? Pastels?

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Small update but one that I found amusing....

    While working on my Frag Grenades (before I cast them from resin) I realised that I needed to alter the tops, this guys head was the perfect diamater.




    Belt Greeblie is also taking shape (upside down on preview for some reason) -




    I will get my *** into gear & get this finished, promise

    I am also workin on a Kast and am actually working on the belt accessories you have pictured above...did you cast thoses peices? I am trying to use jodokast.com as a model but having trouble finding some of the parts as Radio Shack doesnt carry or has changed the parts.

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Thanks Snowie

    I got them from Ebay - i'll pm you the link. Have you considered filling them with Electric Blue food colouring? Works a treat & looks nicer than paint (imo).

    JW - see my reply on your own wip fella - I used/made as many of my own parts as I could find lying about as i'm doing this build on a tight budget.
    Also, I'm in England so a lot of part's mentioned we simply don't get over here.

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    This evening the first Grenade was cast.
    This is a modified kid's Grenade that needed both ends switching out to get away from the GI look & (hopefully) make it appear suitably 'Sci-fi'.
    Using the Scout Snout Greeb & the Medical Droid head seemed to work well enough.
    Be easier to tell for sure once it's got some colour.





    Also started the Mando image on the Shoulder plate (minus outline).

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    More work on Belt Greeb's

    (Air Compressor etc I think).














    We do not have a 'Radio Shack' here in England so I've made most of this from bit's & bob's lying about (a CD Case, Phone jack, Scout snout greeb, Battery, terminal connector's & a Vitamin bottle).

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    First coat on the Frag Grenades (They appear to be a pale blue - again, the shading leaves a lot to personal interpretation).








    Belt Greeb 'thingy' colour test

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Thanks Ted.


    Started cleaning up the rocket + have decided to put a dowel in the middle for the fins to float as per the comic.
    (This should also strengthen them as they're pretty flimsy).



    Grenades done bar the pull pin & then to secure them to the Ammo Belt.








    Girth belt dyed badly so I'll strip it back & try again. I'll be covering the Leather belt in a Grey material wrap & spray the pouches grey.



    Back & Kidney plate (RkD) arrived, so cleaned them up & Primed them.
    Quick question, should they meet as the kidney piece seems tiny & out of proportion to the cod, did you reshape yours to fit?
    Do people connect them on a velcro belt type closure?



    One for fun

    Been awhile, kid's eh. If someone had told me that you become relegated to a Taxi service...

    Anyhow.

    Small updates but pleased with the results.











    All needs to be weathered properly & painted.

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Thanks mate, the armour is Red Krayt Dragon's, well priced, efficient & easy to work with.

    Some further updates.

    (Weathering still needs to be dulled down).

    A friend is currently doing the Leatherwork for Ee-3 sling & sidearm holster.
