Shalamayne Update 6 - Hilt Closeup
Here is a closer look at the hilt of Shalamayne as I was assembling it. I used wood to build up the details, although I'd likely use sintra in the future. I'm using Wonderflex to reinforce the narrower parts of the foam blade by placing narrow strips within the curves.
This photo, taken shortly after cutting out the blade from the insulation foam, shows the pvc pipe handle, and the clear acrylic rods that support the floating blade and the red light orb.
