Information

I cut the main body from a piece of 12mm MDF and then used thinner sheets of MDF to build up the body and detail, then once all cut to shape/angled and sanded, i used Polyfiller and Spray-filler sanded back with Wet and Dry Paper to give it a smooth finish for when it came to spary painting it.
For the revolver cylinder I used a small pringles pot, PVC Pipes, Craft Foam, Card,Polyfiller and Spray-filler and again snaded it back for a smooth finish.

The Difference between the Original Gunblade and the Dissidia version is that the handle is a bit bigger and also longer.
