    So this is my first odst build following dft's videos has taken about 2 months of spare time with one of my lovely friends helping me with all the painting trying to get ready for the melbourne comic con on the 1st of july!

    Nicely done. What are those side pieces on the hips? I don't recall seeing those on the videos.....unless I missed one.

    Gotcha. Made my daughter the same DFT version (ODSK actually) and plan to make my son one as well but want to use the other ODST shins, ab and hip plates.Paint work is great....and I like the battle damage. You are missing some identification or logo on your suit.....not 100% necessary but it does fit the genre.

    Nice job man. Love the weathering. It kinda reminds me of Ironman Mk 1 suit.

    If I may make a suggestion: Along the bottom edge of the helmet, add an inch or so strip of foam angled inward to "round" it off a bit. The DFT helmet is more bucket like than helmet like. This will also conceal more of the neckline if exposed.

    Already thought of that and done it! It really helped finish off the look but really appreciate the feed back!

    Awesome, your foam work is very clean . ODST armor seems to be al the rage lately. It sure to be a hit at the convention

    Someone who actually finished their suit multiple days before a convention?? *tips hat to you sir. :) Very nice first suit and great time management. I'm sure you'll have a good time at the con. Very jealous.

    You couldn't make the tip removable? That way you could do some photos and then put it back on when walking around.
