Jodo Kast: Ashen's WIP
« on: Feb 04, 2017, 02:28 PM »
My Mandalorian love continues and I've liked this character for a very long time and now I'm building it.

The whole comic as reference, but due to him having 2 load outs, I'm going to try and only pull from the latter part of the comic in Nal Hutta

The scan is flatter in colour , but your able to see the details pretty well still.
This is my Imgur album if you would like an even bigger sample  ;D Jodo Kast Reference images album

The beginning:




















From here is where I'm trying to pull references from  ;D


















Thanks to Toolguy301's 3D template's I've been able to get allot of the parts from Shapeways and they look great.

Thought we'd start with the soft parts first and a few 3D printed bits then go from there, feedback appreciated

Zip will be covered with a matching panel

Managed to get a pair of second hand pair of RotJ Boba gauntlets

3D printed parts

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

EDIT: Due to Photobucket fail I've gone through my wip restoring the finished pieces and references where possible, the transition (WIP) parts I felt were not required as they are superseded by the final piece.
Hope you still enjoy

Forgot to put up these pictures of the leather pouches I got from Delta 13 matches the flight suit so well.

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

Had a delivery today with a few more parts from Shapeways.

Grenades

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

Missile topper, stabilizer and beacon for Jetpack

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

Decided to follow Toolguys example and have pipes joining up the equipment instead of strands that came from the girth belt.
I see it as the artists not being able to put different colours in before print and makes far more sense that they are pipes instead of strands.
Toolguys belt:

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

Reference pictures

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

So I got a good friend of mine to 3D print the part to hold the connecters and also got some flexible piping to run through everything

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

And finally....... Pistol

Far too few JK's around. Glad to see someone taking interest. Let me know if you have questions, I helped Toolguy with his build a while back.

It's spelled "Canon", not "Cannon".

Those ear caps are things of beauty. As and when I come to do a third kit I shall be using the same supplier.
Having held these pieces in real life they are machined to perfection
