Title: Jodo Kast
Post by: Ithica on Jun 29, 2012, 12:10 AM
I am not sure if this is where this quite belongs because there will only be minor adjustments but I broke down and decided to get a canon kit and here it is. Now this is not me in it...YET. I will have it soon and will be submitting my app for it shortly after.

I may downsize... well maybe. I have one more coming but it is still going to be a while. The next one is the Ralph McQuarrie I'm slowly building.

You're gonna need your own page in my records LOL

Yeah, glad this is going to a good home. It's an incredible kit. I'll be interested to see how much adjustment you'll have to do to get it to fit you properly.

I made a few changes to the kit for comfort, durability and some more accuracy.

I added piano hinges instead of the fabric and velcro that was on it. This make the gauntlets easier to open and close and makes them stronger.

I added toe spikes that I made. These are on some imagery but not all so they can be optional but I like them so I built some.

I was missing the grenades so I made some. Very easy build.

Awesome work as always Ithica!!

Congrats on getting this Jodo approved *again* !!  :P :P (Joking, I know you put a lot of work on it after Kory...)

Question: This black weathering on the flight suit, is it paint? Did you just brush it on? I might consider doing something like that to ad to my already weathered flight suit...!

Post by: Mullreel on Oct 11, 2012, 10:29 AM
looks good......just need to add snaps to that shoulder....
Title: Re: Jodo Kast
Post by: Ca'tal on Oct 11, 2012, 10:33 AM
I just noticed something...is it just me or is the left shoulder a little lower than the right? (Maybe what Mullreel is mentioning.)
Title: Re: Jodo Kast
Post by: Ithica on Oct 11, 2012, 11:22 AM
The black on the jumpsuit is acrylic paint.

The one shoulder may be lower because part of the dressing/undressing process is that the shoulders come off. They are held on with velcro. In this case ome was put on lower but thats not permanent.
