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.
Three layers of plastic as the core, a sprue from a gunpla runner for the hilt, and some cardboard for added volume.
The supposed to be shield, but I won't go through all the trouble making it deployable, so it's just for cosmetics.
The blade itself, seven layers of plastic for detail.
All seven layers combined, temporarily with tape.
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.
