Decided to do a Jodo Kast. This seemed like a fun & challenging character to do. I am taking a different approach to this than others have taken in the past. I have been working on designing most of the parts to be 3D printed. I am trying to make the pieces as close to the comic book reference "Twin Engines of Destruction", but using some creative liberties as well.

The first pieces that I have gotten in were for the jetpack. I did a complete 3D design of the jetpack & have created a pepakura file to build the body. Design this base on what I learned from my first jetpack build. I designed the rocket tip, beacon, & stabilizer based off the comic which would be specific to Jodo Kast. I have had all the other pieces thrusters, upper/lower fuel tank caps, rocket collar, & the rocket pieces already designed.

Here are some of the 3D designs for the piece that I am planning on having printed. These are both the left & right belt pieces & rangefinder with the added lens & the round lens on the perspex block. The pistol & throw grenades were designed per the comic references. The pistol grenade will fit on the end of the Pulce 40 that I designed. Which is a 4 pieces design & is designed to have a seperate moving trigger. I decided to go with the Pulce 40 because this is consistent with Boba Fett & being similar era & in previous Jodo Kast costumes this has been used. Jodo seems to use a number of different blasters though out the comic. I will also be making a modified EE-3 based on the comic.

I got a miscast helmet from Darth Voorhees (TDH), to use. It had a messed up key slot area which I will cut out & replace with buttons instead.

Designed the gauntlets to be 3D printed which will be Jodo Kast specific based on the comic.

The right gauntlet difference from Boba Fett is the added the extra rockets (Same as the knee armor pieces) on the sides & the scoop around the darts. I went with a combination of the ESB & ROTJ whip cord housing because there is a reference showing details similar to both throughout the comic so why not make a hybrid.

The left gauntlet difference from Boba Fett is adding the 2 smaller rockets. I made them a little smaller than how they are shown in the comic to try & make it more realistic on the left gauntlet. I wanted to keep the main features intact with some simple mounts & not to make it too bulky.

I know this is a quick follow up. Started working on my jetpack Saturday. This started with 25 printed sheets of 110 lb. card stock.

All the pieces were cut out. This tends to be one of the most grueling parts of the build. With this being a pepakura build there are tabs with all the I.D. numbers to help you put it together & line everything up.

After everything is cut out decided to start sorta in the middle in order to work my way out. The pep file is designed symmetrical so there is left & right side so makes it easy to put it together. There are bend lines printed on each piece that I am lightly scoring to help create the bend & am using various pliers to help do the bending of the tabs & pieces. I have found that using wood glue works well, easier to clean up than using super glue & less chance of sticking fingers together.

I built my Boba Fett jetpack in the same manner that I am going to build this using the card stock as an outer shell & using .060" thick chip board (architectural card board) for internal structure. Printing out a second set of pieces on plain paper, using these as templates for the chip board pieces that will be used on the inside. There is more that will be done but this is a start.

Mocked up with the 3D printed rocket & base collar.

Wow, awesome start! I love the Jodo Kast character and always thought they could have done so much more with him besides a one shot.

I love the subtle details you put on the belt greeblies. Definitely gives it a real world feel. You're really going the extra mile on this and it shows. I'm subscribing to this one!

Thanks for the kind words.

Trying to give Jodo that real world feel and still hold true to the comic. I love the Jodo Kast character, too bad he met a fatal end.

Big help for me on this build is it's following the completion of my ROTJ Boba Fett so learned tons with that build which was pretty much a scratch build. Really enjoying this build so far in that I can use some creative liberties but still try to maintain accuracy to the character.

Some more progress on the jetpack. Finished up assembling the exhaust vent & added some more pieces of the chip board for structure.

Finished up the assemble of the card stock shell on the outer portion of the jetpack. Still need to finish the back but will be adding some added chip board inside. Did a complete mock up with all of the 3D printed parts.

Also received a box in the mail today with some 3D printed pieces. The belt pieces, rangefinder assembly, jetpack piano keys, ears & back plate for the helmet.

The light kit is JC27's (TDH) from my Boba Fett rangefinder, this is a drop in without any modification. This range finder assembles in minutes.

The ear pieces & the rangefinder stalk are printed in a metallic gray plastic.

Thank you for the kind words.

Did some work on the helmet got the dent filled in and filled in the Boba specific damage. Leveled the areas the ears sit & got the mounting holes drilled for them. Cleared out the key slot area & installed the button panel. Getting ready for some primer.

Worked on finishing the inside of the jetppack before putting the back on. After putting all the chip board pieces that I wanted on the inside I began gluing pieces of card stock on all of the seams. I find this helps hold things in place & leaving gaps will allow the coating of resin to fill in those places which was done next. Used smooth cast 320 to coat the inside using a chip brush & some pouring to spread it around. I have found that this give a very strong & durable result & is very light weight.

Primed the helmet & block sanded it, but need to spot prime a couple of spots before paint but is pretty much ready for that stage. The 3D printed ears have a hex designed in them to fit an 8-32 nut which I epoxied in so that they could be attached to the helmet.

Received my cape from MLS (TDH), can't say enough for his communication & working with me on what I wanted. For doing something custom he got this done in quick order. Absolutely excellent. The cape is similar to the ESB Boba Fett cape. The stripe is the same color but went with a dark brown for the rest.

Getting close to completing the jetpack I have been mulling over the color scheme which is something that I have been pondering for a while. Haven't seen anyone do a paint scheme in the mono-color scheme that is shown throughout the comic so decided to come up with a scheme based on this with some artistic interpretations. Going with a medium blue body, with red caps on the fuel tanks, orange on the base of the rocket & the piano keys, & some gray & silver throughout. This will also be heavily weathered. My thinking is that it would be similar but different to the ESB Boba Fett jetpack as a comparison.

This is going really well. I saw a boba fett jet pack file a while back but didn't think it could be made and come out well. Great job, I can't wait to see more

Thanks guys.

This is my second pep built jetpack. Did this for my ROTJ Boba Fett which was a complete pep build tank caps, rocket, & thrusters. That pep file was designed by Skupilkinson. This design was my own with improvements & changes that I had made to make that file work for me. I take a different approach to pep building from what I have seen others do. Here is a photo of my completed ROTJ Boba Fett jetpack. I have done a number of complex pep builds & with a good plan & patience you can pretty much make anything in this medium.

Been a bit have had some home projects to work on, but have gotten the jetpack fully resin coated, filled with a coat of bondo & sanded, then a light coat of a spackle with a mixture of Elmers glue for some extra bond. Sanded this down to a pretty smooth finish. Will be adding some spot filler & brush on another light coat of resin over the entire outside of the pack to fill in voids & to seal the spackle. Then finish sanding & ready for primer. Will be getting the piano keys attached will probably use super glue. Getting things ready for painting when the weather finally warms up.
