    Hey look, another ODST. *Finished Pg 26*

    Well I guess its finally time to start my own progress thread.

    I'm doing and ODST (how original). I decided to go with a custom variant. My plans for that are to use Buck's comm unit, Mickey's shoulder, a combat knife, which will probably be across the shoulder strap, and hopefully a Rookie backpack. The backpack will definitely be the very last thing I do though.

    I'm using a mix of available ODST pieces, but mainly Hugh's. Time for progress.

    The chest is the only thing I have completely finished, except for the possibility of an emblem. (by Kirrou)

    The front, still a lot of work.

    Mickey's shoulder. (ripped by me, edited and unfolded by Ral Partha)

    Comm unit. It doesn't have the piece that wraps partway around the back, so I might do that with foam. (by nightshade)

    Finally, the standard shoulder. I might switch it to the hinged version, because this lack a lot of mobility. (by Kirrou)

    That's all I have for now. I hope to do an update about once a week.

    Thanks for the input guys. The chest piece is actually the first thing I ever bondo'd, and I'm quite pleased with it. I hope to finish the helmet by the end of next week. Also, I just finished cutting out one of the thighs.

    Alteration. I think I searched it on google.

    Nice, i think you could make that ODST shoulder into a hinged one.

    were did you get your visor from dude its nice color of blue
     
  13. Jimmy Da Moose

    Jimmy Da Moose

    Awesome, thanks for the file.

    The color is Testor's transparent blue spray paint. I got it at Michael's craft store. It works great and you can see out of it very well. If you use it thought, be careful, its very runny.

    The visor is also nicely shaped, is it tempered to shape?

    I made a vacuum former. It was fairly easy and cheap. The mold was made from the visor cut out, but it was smoothed down a lot. I'll post some pics tomorrow after school.

    The torso half finished. I just wanna do a little smoothing to the front before paint.

    Thanks to Hugh for the awesome files. The stomach plate is by Kirrou because I already had it assembled when I saw Hugh's files.

    Also, a view from inside the visor.

    Great work! I would definitely recommend making the shoulder hinged. Without the hinge, every movement is harder than it needs to be. Keep up the fantastic job!

    I did cut the shoulder in half, it just needs a little more would before I put the hinge on.

    Hmmm... Impressive! Thinking of using Hugh Holder's pep files to continue my ODST build as well. ;)

    The chest core is totally finished.
    odst__complete__torso_by_jimmydamoose-d39ut4c.jpg
    odst__chest_torso_by_jimmydamoose-d39ut91.jpg
    There is a gap between the chest plate and the core along the sides because I used Kirrou's chest with Hugh's other files.

    odst__spine_plates_by_jimmydamoose-d39ut0r.jpg
    Spine plates! These turned out really well. Its hard to see due to the combination of a bad web cam and the fact that everything is painted black.

    Chest is looking great so far. Hughs files are the best.

    Can we see a photo of the visor from a frontal point of view? I'd love to see how it looks.

    This is the best I have for now.

    I took the visor out of the helmet so I can finish it. I'm want to have it finished by Sunday, so I can get a good picture of it then.
