Weapon Mod - Spin Sword Blade & Handle Mod (Details Incomplete)...

Although the Spin Sword (Samurai Rangers version) has a much better blade-handle proportion than the DX Shinkenmaru (Shinkenger version), I still find the blade a little too short... Hence decided to get a toy sword blade to replace the existing one... The new blade was shaped to what the original blade has, in order to fit and locked into the Spin Sword. Hot-melt glue is used to flow into the gaps at the tip to give it sturdiness...


Testing... Ok!... Also cut a small piece to cover the blade nearer to the spinning part...


Spray painted silver chrome, then lacquer, but the sprayed lacquer matts the shininess of the chrome silver, so sprayed chrome silver again over the blade... Sadly, the plastic of the new blade does not allow spray paint to stick well...


Finally done! Any sticking is done using hot-melt glue... The new handle is also recycled from the cut-up toy sword's handle, and taped up using black elastic tape... Need to put up more details, like the red narrow triangular detail in the middle of handle, the Shiba Clan logo at the end of handle, etc...


A comparison of the modded Spin Sword with the original one... Overall, not a good mod, some part can be better, especially at the part where the 2 blades "join"... Looks too fat...  



Edit: The handle details are done...



My updated Shinkengers / Samurai Rangers gear...
