    I started writing my post before you posted all that stuff you just posted. That is a really impressive technique you have demonstrated. You could laminate that all around a .22 long rifle barrel and mechanism then if someone challenges you to a sword fight, just shoot them. Imagine the surprise, "That guy just shot me with his sword!!!". :)

    That would be John-Steed-Style! ;)

    The technique comes from the original designers, BJ and Red.

    What a way to Avenge(r) oneself! After all what is a man without his Steed? Ok, I'll stop horseing around now...

    BTW, looking good RF! I see it has cut through the other projects! :) (Ok, I know we used that one...)

    One fine day, in the middle of the night,
    Two dead men got up to fight,
    Back to back they faced each other,
    Drew their swords and shot each other...

    Now this is where the fun begins: :)

    The blade is made of two equal halves.

    DSCF0256.jpg

    DSCF0259.jpg

    They are glued together.

    The center piece is inserted.

    The handguard is pushed over the center piece.

    DSCF0272.jpg

    DSCF0274.jpg

    Side pieces are glued to the position of the handle.

    Unfortunately I ran out of glue at this moment, so we all must be patient till tomorrow. Stay tuned (and have fun)! :)

    No glue?

    That is great work, it looks like metal.

    I will use your advice when using silver card...... And Zathros also put the idea in my head for the fantastic Hunter Killer model.... A darkened texture base, with a semi-translutant over coat of heat resistant chrome..

    Maybe two HK's with both types of finishes would make a good diorama. ...

    Alright, to be honest: It IS steel welded together with the power of the Gods. ;)





    OK, you got me. Glue is applied only to the center piece when the parts are pushed over it. ;)

    I too am very surprised at the results. It really looks like stainless steel and will make a formidable prop. My mom likes it as well. But please keep in mind that this is not entirely my creation. I'm just refining it. :)

    In the beginning I thought it would be "just another test build" and did not care too much about the materials I used for the build. What you see here are mainly scraps and left-over pieces from previous builds and corrugated card from a delivery at work which would have been discarded. The thinner card originated from old parcels and storage boxes. So in a way this is top-notch recycling. :)

    I'd love to see those HKs, Dan! :)

    What, @DanBKing not up to a pun-fest?!?! I'm feeling pun-chy today...

    Jed-I will have my say!

    (suddenly realised that the topic is quite awkward for puns.... :headbange:)

    @Cybergrinder I think it would be a better idea to open a dedicated pun-thread in the "Off-Topic Lounge," Then we can go pun mad without hijacking everyone's thread.

    LOL, very true and very good idea! The nice thing about the "hi-jacks" is the fun of punning off (or at least starting) the topic of the build tread. :) We even got Zathros punning on this one Claphands
