I've already began building Espadia's custom light armor set, with some parts taken off HG 1:144 Throne Zwei, including this sword, that I've already painted to her color theme.

And after more than a month of weapon-building hiatus (can't be helped, was busy with my shinki shelf and other stuff), I'm finally able to begin my own version of God Eater Burst's (PSP) god arc weapon, this one is modeled after the character Soma's god arc, but will be able to change blades depending on the situation.

Image
Three layers of plastic as the core, a sprue from a gunpla runner for the hilt, and some cardboard for added volume.

Image
The supposed to be shield, but I won't go through all the trouble making it deployable, so it's just for cosmetics.

Image
The blade itself, seven layers of plastic for detail.

Image

Image
All seven layers combined, temporarily with tape.

Image
A small preview of what is to come...

The blade is serrated and will be cut accordingly, then will come painting. If you look at the game, there are two types of god arc weapons, the old type that comes in sword or gun forms, and the new type that transforms freely between sword and gun (just some info for those new to the game). This is based on Soma's, which is an old type buster sword, but will have interchangeable blades. And this is a HUGE weapon, so a separate action base might be needed for future photoshoot sessions when I'm finished building it.

Lol, I ran out of scrap dvd cases, so I went out and bought some, and got multicolored ones. Basically, any source of thin sheet plastic would work, it just depends on what you're building.

While working on the god arc weapon, I began another project which is a bit easier, twin daggers from .hack's Tri-Edge.

Image
The only main issue with this build is the complexity of the pieces that had to be cut, especially since they're very small.

And here is the god arc weapon primed and ready for painting.

Image
I had to use a gunpla action base to help support its weight, similar to MG Astray Red Frame's sword.

Edit: I just assembled the Tri-Edge daggers, now needs priming and painting.

Image
Though they seem more 'sword' like than 'dagger', but those sizes I got off cosplay pics, so they're just about the right size for a shinki.

Tri-Edge daggers plus Beam Spear complete.

Image

The god arc weapon still in the works, finished shaping the second blade (katana-type) while drawing up the third (Clemencor design, used by Alisa, and later available to the protagonist in the God Eater Burst game). The fourth blade will be my own design (still thinking...).

It has certainly been a long while since I updated this thread. But I just wanna say that this thread is gonna be on hiatus for an indefinite time... You see, I began this thread to make weaponry for my girls, back when I thought weaponry sources were scarce in my place. But as of now...

Image

Image

As you can see, I've already built up an entire armory for my shinkis. Some are my own scratch-built creations, and some from other sources like figmas and gunpla (and I didn't even include in the pics the ones my shinkis are currently equipped with and the ones still in the boxes of my unused gunpla). So I don't really need any more ... well, you can't have enough dakkas but what's the point if you can't carry 'em all at the same time, right? :P

My god arc weapon project is also in stasis (been weeks since I last worked on 'em), so I guess that's it. And before anyone starts, I only use gunpla weaponry that are compatible to shinki hands, and those that I have already modified (and going to modify) to do so.

Maybe I'll post something here once I get the inspiration to build more weapons again.

Impressive. Your topic has inspired me to make custom weapons and I'm kinda sad you're done with them (and the show of WIPs) for the foreseeable future.
Where's that gun below the green katar-gun from?
