Hi guys! Having ALMOST finished the instructions for Andrew Probert's Triangle Ship and waiting for the final puzzle piece to get everything released I am using the time to make a quick and dirty test-build of the Cylon sword. The original design was made by @BazookaJo and @Red who kindly have given me permission to tinker with it (thank you, guys! ). The first version was made in 2009 and features one of the most ingenious build strategies I have ever seen. The main parts are made of corrugated card and no matter which kind of card you use and no matter how thick the card is the parts will fit together without problems. In addition, the result should be very stable. Excellent and carefully thought-out ingeneering. Hats off. The biggest problem of the design was that it was made before proper close-up shots of the original prop were available. So some pieces were shaped incorrectly (especially the hand guard). I corrected the shapes and revised the dimensions and proportions to come up with a faithful representation of the real thing. I will be keeping the original way of assembly because it can't get any better. So far I have glued the core pieces to corrugated card and am waiting for the glue to cure. Red and BJ will certainly spot the changes I have made in the following picture. Don't worry about the jagged lines, everything comes as vectors. Apparently the down-sizing of the picture has made it look that way. Stay tuned, this is gonna be a fast run (I hope ).
