Alrighty, time for more blastsword progress!

First off, gluing the hilt:



You'll notice that parts of the guard have been lightly sanded, just because I didn't know how hard it would be to get to them once they were glued on. I'm glad I did, finishing them up was kind of tricky!

Here's a shot of them completely attached:



They also double as sights for looking down the barrel, which I thought was cool, being me. I doubt this thing would even have enough range to  justify sights, but I have 'em!

I also added two thin pieces of wood to either side of the grip, to give it a bit more dimension and make it a tad easier to handle with gloves on.

I went on to finish up the sanding on the guard, giving it a slight edge that lined up with the blade.



I'm rather pleased with how it turned out, for some reason I was really worried about messing this part up. Might needs some touch-up work before I declare it officially done.

I went on to glue on the hammer and the trigger with some wood glue, and here it is as of right now:



It's getting close to being done, which has me excited. Still toying with the idea of putting lights in it, but in the interest of time I think I'm just gonna fill in the gap between the pipe and sight with some epoxy, glue on all the fittings, and finish up the front sight. What do you guys think?

Lol, thanks Kane, I'm glad you like it! I'll moat likely post detailed templates at some point later on, probably after I have this one finished. And don't apologize for wanting to make one vod, it's a very cool weapon in the SW universe. I'll honestly be happy to see more blastsword - users in the mercs! I'm also excited to see how people play with the design as well!

I'll hopefully have more progress to show on it soon, keep an eye out!

lol i was worried more about someone else's reaction, not yours ;)

i feel as though i must now run to the store and purchase MDF board... all i can find is 3/4 in thickness though... and 3/4 in wide PVC... this may turn out weird looking... ;)

Are you going to sheath that thing? Or lug it around? Looks pretty neat.

I get what you mean, though from what I gathered Frost was more displeased with people trying to make excuses for low-quality, cross-over swords and such. As long as you keep the canon references in mind and build most of it yourself, I'm sure he will approve. Though I personally support adding a bit of your own flair into the design when you do start working on yours, make it your own, within reason!

On that note, I would recommend holding out until you can find 1/2" MDF, as I personally think that is already pushing the plausible thickness for a blade, especially one originally meant for dueling. Just my opinion on that note though.

Are you going to sheath that thing? Or lug it around? Looks pretty neat.

Thanks Karvas! And I plan on making some kind of sheath-like item for this thing, yes. I'm thinking I'll cut and shape a bit of sintra into something that would attach to my belt and I would be able to clip around the blade between the seration-pointy bit in the blade and the guard, maybe secured with buttons or the like? It's not on my immediate to-do list, though I certainly do have plans for it.

Why do we Mandalorians fight?

To bring honor to our culture and preserve the old ways of the Mando'ad. Be it fighting our own, the Empire, or the Republic.

Thanks guys! I'm glad you all like it! And part of the purpose of this thread was to outline most of what I did to make these so that others who might want them might have an easier time. As Kane requested above, I'll be posting templates and other helpful materials eventually!

Minor blastsword update, plus some questions I have for anybody who's willing to answer.

So I decided on a design for my blastsword's front sight, cut it out, and did some minor sanding to it. The sanding for it will probably be finished up tonight while I'm helping Cinciri Ramser with his sniper. But here's where the whole thing stands as of right now, have a look:



A closer look on the sight and the muzzle:



Now I have a few questions that I would appreciate answers for:
1) Do you guys enjoy the front sight design?

2) Does anybody think any modifications to the barrel or muzzle are necessary? The muzzle is literally 2 pvc couplings put together, and I think it looks good, and have yet to hear anything negative about it. So if there is anything I need to do to it besides glue it, PLEASE feel free to say so.

3) What colors should I paint it? I've been mulling this one over for a while, and I don't want it to have the exact same color scheme as the one in the reference pic I used, mainly because I want to avoid the gold, as it seems a bit too flashy and doesn't really go with anything else on my kit. I don't just want to spray it jet black either, like most of the guns I've seen in Star Wars, as that seems to boring. I've been thinking about throwing some burgundy and silver in there to match my kit, but I just don't know. HALP!!

After I wrap up a few more details on it, the gluing process will begin, and then it will be painted shortly after that, so any answers I get before then will be greatly appreciated!

Don't match it to the color of your kit, personally I think it doesn't make much sense.
Paint it whatever color you please. Brown with silver blade, copper with silver blade?

Thanks for the suggestions guys, keep 'em comin'! As of right now I'm thinking silver blade edge, guard, trigger, and hammer, black or dark gray blade flat, burgundy grip, and silver or black for the raised section on said grip. Thoughts?
