Fake leather handle (Posted 24th May 2012)

I folded a strip of fake leather and super glued the end on to the top of the handle then wrapped it round and super glued it in place.
There should be less leather and more pommel but I made a mistake and it's too late to change it :(

Hand guard in place (Posted 22nd May 2012)

I glued the hand guard in with Araldite. The gap is for the blade to slot into.

Handle (in progress) (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Wood glued the pieces together and rounded the edges of the bare MDF on a disk sander.

Attached to the rest of the handle (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Glued on to the handle and fillered

End detail (modified due to time restraints) (Posted 22nd May 2012)

MDF, covered in filler primer.

Hand guard (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Sprayed with filler primer, then white spray paint, then gold.

Hand guard (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Clear plastic tubing with copper wire rods in the middle to keep the shape. Super Sculpy on the ends (later heated, and sprayed with filler primer).

Handle detail (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Sprayed white, then gold.

Handle detail (Posted 22nd May 2012)

MDF and plastic, covered in filler

Sanded and painted (Posted 22nd May 2012)

I did several base coats of white, just to make it extra shiny when I put the metallic silver on :)

Sanded down edges and fillered (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Sorry about the blurry picture :p

Basic shape (MDF) (Posted 22nd May 2012)

5mm MDF.
