Here's the Master Sword I said I was working on last summer. Hahahahaha....Meant to finish a long time ago but never did. XD
Anyway, this is just a group of Work in progress shots. It's made out of my usual material, aspen wood. It was kind of tough figuring out how to make it, especially since I wasn't able to find a piece of wood wide enough to cut out the base layer in one piece. I ended up putting it all together almost like a layered jigsaw puzzle. It's about 41 in. long. It's also modeled from a combination of the Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword versions of the sword.
The first pic on the top was basically where I had it in 2 days. The handguard was made out of three layers to give it the proper width. The edge is all filed down. One side of the Master Sword's wing-a-lings have also been finished. The handle is also rounded off.
The second photo shows where I had it after another 2 or 3 days. The handguard has been filed down on both sides and has more detail. I cut out some diamonds out of wood and shaped them with the dremel. The part I'm most proud of is the round part of the handguard. I basically made a huge puck of wood that was able to wrap around the handguard. I did something similar with the pommel. Finally I added the Triforce Emblem by gluing on some styrene.
The third photo is just a close up of second photo. I actually messed up some of the detail on the handguard. When I was looking at the template I had blown up from official art, I somehow interpreted the handguard having one more ridge on it than it should. :'I
I'm also considering modifying the pommel some, since after looking at some more recent art I've found that the pommel's tip has some inward facing ridges.
