I was hesitant to upload this as it is for the most part a copy of Jin Saotome's recipe. But having shown it to him and received his blessing to post, here it is. I will only be exploring the things I did different in this description and will not add my logo to the pics. My cousin originally spotted Jin's Major Dutch Schafer and being a big fan of the game, he wanted one something fierce. Jin however had sold his long ago, so I offered to make him one. We agreed that Jin's recipe was such a thing of beauty, we wanted to adhere to it as much as possible, though some changes were made due to necessity. We eventually decided to go with a different paint scheme to differentiate it from his. The shoulder straps are from Neca Duke nukem which upon further inspection I believe Jin may have used but I left all the grenades and pouches on and ran it to the belt like a load bearing vest. The power pack is from a Mcfarlane Halo Jorge figure as are the knee pads. The elbow pad is a colonial marine knee pad. The bicep portion of the mech arm is a gundam leg spliced into the ball hinge shoulder. The elbow joint was made from an existing ball socket that happened to fit the gundam ball joint and attached with JB steel stick(a substance I'm growing increasingly fond of). the cannon is from a spawn 11 gun with everything pulled off. Instead of a hose running from the mech wrist to the bicep I used a wire bundle from the McFarlane queen alien diorama. He wanted to keep all dutch's original accessories so the pistol holster was modified to be a lefty, the knife was moved to his leg and the rifle slung around his arm. This is now a central piece of his collection. Anything not covered here can be found on Jin's original figure page.

Which armored core figure did you get the arm from?
mr.fenrir - Monday, July 21, 2014
Jin used armored core, it was a bit expensive for my budget and I could never locate the one he used anyway, instead I used the right leg of a gundam heavyarms figure with the rocket pack removed. the armor plate on top of that is a random piece.

I meant the forearm (the part of his arm with the hand and the gun) where did you get that part of his arm?

Dude love it. And it is part of our hobbie to take someone's recipe and make it your own. As long as you give them the credit for the recipe. Which you did. And jin is like , a pretty awesome guy.
He also makes so many cool things it would be hard NOT to copy him. Lol. So just one thing.
Where is the hand from? Also. Jb cold weld? I never had good luck with that with plastic?
Love it man great job.

Steel stik is a two part compound putty that usually bites pretty well to prepared surfaces. Even if it fails, it makes a perfectly molded surface that then takes super glue really well. I use it not only for binding but sculpting as well. the mohawk in my self custom is made from it. The hand comes off of the microman biomachine Kong figure. they can be pricey at times

I love that old arcade game. Dammit, Capcom put it on PSN and the other thingies now so it can get the exposure and sales it's deserved all these years. Great custom too.
