    Re: My Jodo Kast

    This coming Sunday I will be trooping as Jodo with our local outfit.
    I can then see what falls off etc & go from there.




    Jetpack really is a pile of junk, but i've done the best with what I had. I simply can't justify a new one. There is nothing symmetrical about the entire unit including the rocket topper.
    Beacon is made from a torch from Poundland & the Medical droid dome. Lollipop from an R2 head unit.

    Jetpack still needs paint/weathering.

    Today was also the first full dress run..






    I noticed the following that will be rectified before Sundays troop.

    Girth belt slipped down, pouches are now glued onto the belt along with the Velcro.
    Collar plate & Shoulder armour (now has) a bolt under the keyboard slots, locking them together.
    Gauntlet's are a bit tight.
    Hoses housing slipped out from under Flak Vest.
    Jetpack also slipped down.
    Collar came undone.

    This is nowhere near as easy to get on as my Scout was.....I will need a squire to assist me.

    If you see anything obviously wrong please holler.

    Your suit looks really beat-up, which is a good thing and the whole image is fascinating! I saw a minor thing that bothers my eyes, and I'm talking about the ankle spats: you should wear them a bit higher on your ankles to not cover half of the boots.

    Keep up the great work and good luck on your first troop!

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Thanks J, can't wait to see your Montross up & running. A Good year for Mando's in the G brother!

    Couple more pic's...












    Todays troop went better that I expected, couple of adjustment's required but nothing major & nothing fell off/broke which always helps.
    Will be putting pic's in real soon for clearance. Couple of minor tweaks to rectify first.

    The scorching around the battle damage dents and scraches looks amazing. How did you do that? you should post a tutorial on your method. the whole suit is fantastic.

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Thanks guys.

    A tutorial could work Pancho, not sure how welcome it would be & would need to be stickied to prevent it getting buried in a fortnight (?)

    I got the nod last night that I am now '501st Cleared'. TB 9474 is officially retired & BH 9474 is here.

    Watch out Fossils....

    Thanks all for the encouragement & feedback & see you on the Ice!

    Some pic's from last weekends Legoland Troop with the UKG & Mando Merc's, Rebel Legion & R2 builders club.

















    Had a blast & it went well, as a surprise my wife drew me a Tattoo design to celebrate the completion of Jodo...

    Very inspired by your build! Working on a Jaster build myself, the wife is helping me do it. Great work though! I'd love to pick your brain about some of the things you did.

    I am very impressed how this turned out. You should be very proud of the art you created and that is no exageration. Well done!

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Man that turned out really well. I worked on a Jodo a long time ago but ended up selling before I completed it. Here's my old suit, but yours looks way better and detailed:

    This makes me really want to start another suit

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    A couple of recent shots. Upgraded the connections as the hoses were working loose on the Flamer unit.

    Re: My Jodo Kast

    Thank you guys, just linked my wip to someone & saw the later replies.

    Jodo is still going strong & gaining even more weathering.

    Some more recent pics.
