Hey all! I’m Bella (she/her)

So I started something similar to this on my introduction post, and I wanted to make an official build thread for my ODST.

The basis: I managed to acquire a Sean Bradley ODST kit, which I have spent the best part of 3 months on. My current helmet is an Xcoser make, which will do for now; and I carry a repainted NERF™️ MA-40.

MA-40 Repaint.
I felt this should be it’s own little section.

As most of you will know, Nerf teamed up with Xbox and 343 to start a line of Halo blasters. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a blaster. And initially, I liked the look of it. But part of me wanted to turn that into an MA-37.


So while it’s still been surprisingly good weather still here in the UK, I got to work. I used:
Plastikote primer grey
Plastikote grey (with a touch of black)
Plastikote flat black
Painter’s touch silver
Plastikote Matt sealer.

BONUS: To my amazement, the battery compartment and internals were intact after the paint job was completed! So I now have a semi automatic MA-37!

Hey all! I’m Bella (she/her)

So I started something similar to this on my introduction post, and I wanted to make an official build thread for my ODST.

The basis: I managed to acquire a Sean Bradley ODST kit, which I have spent the best part of 3 months on. My current helmet is an Xcoser make, which will do for now; and I carry a repainted NERF™️ MA-40.

Currently, the armour is complete, but I’m waiting on some soft kit pieces before suiting up for professional photos, plus some minor details, such as decals; which are being done by Mr Conley of Ebonywarriorstudios.

Another quick update:
The combat fleece arrived! Now to wait on my flak vest!

The flak vest arrived! And it does nicely sort the giraffe neck issue I seemed to have! The flak vest is a modified Biker Scout flak vest that has extra padding in the biceps and on the shoulders

And I’m making some last touches to the kit overall. Such as removing the Velcro which ultimately ended up doing nothing, if I’m honest, I get a bumblebee camaro vibe from this View attachment 298442
I took 2 test fit shots tonight! So it turns out the shoulders are a two person job to get on, and it needs some minor adjustments here and there, but we’re almost ready to drop.
