Posted this over on the BHG as well but figured this place gets more traffic anyway.
ok now that I have told the wife who was surprisingly ok with this. I am going to be building Jodo Kast before CV..........
now a couple questions to throw out there are on the lineup of supplies.
1: Helmet- going with a Mystery or FP bucket.... exactly how much will I need to throw into it as far as work?
2: Gauntlets and Jet pack- going to be MOW.... are they worth it? the pics I have seen lead me to believe so.
3: boots/shoes- I wear a 13 US size, should I build these or buy them? if I build does anyone have info on sources for the base shoe and so on?? same question if I buy them please PM me with info..
4: gloves- I know Parade gloves are recommended but I found multiple types on line.
I factored in the cost to be around $1,500 give or take (anticipating give) but I am going to slowly be doing this over time. I also will need to get my Flight suit custom made because I am too tall for anything off the rack.
hoping to share progress on this during the build, but wont be till a couple months (Feb) that I will have money together to make the first purchase for this.
