Title: 1/3 Samurai Sword (miyamoto Musashi)

Entau - December 1, 2009 07:39 AM (GMT)


Something different this time :lol:
thanks rayloke for getting this kit for me in HK, :P

but once i open it, was a bit dissapointed, this kit was badly mold, lots of flash, sink hole, and other imperfection, and i've
been sanding this kit for almost 2 weeks :blood25ij:
THe BASE

as you can see, i need to fill all the holes and gaps, and even remove the ornament pattern on the side because its badly
mold.
THE KATANA

all the parts for the katana, the wakizaki also consist the same amount of parts, only smaller

the double ring tsuba, very deep sink mark, and lots of sanding

extended the bottom, cause its too short compare to the real one

before and after sanding, now i know why its so difficult to polish/shape a katana :P

the kogatana (little knife) to be insert at the saya (scabbard)

test fitting everything for any miss allignment

The Chrome
I'm using Mr Color Metalizer Aluminium

I'm doing it using drybrushing, no Airbrush was use at all, and not event on black basecoat

ok, first i wetsand the spoon with 1000, then mask the hamon (wave pattern) and compound with tamiya compound coarse,

then tamiya fine compound, after that apply mr color aluminium using dry brush, about 4 layer

as you can see the top are just 1000 wetsand, so the reflection are blurred, while the bottom are much smoother, and this is

just drybrushing on WHITE plastic and then BUFF till shine, IMO the outcome should be better and gloss black surface
cons: can't touch with bare hand, easily scrub off, can't be topcoat or decal
pros: can be touch up using drybrushing and buff again, all done in 15min

Fascinating. Well done thus far Entau. Pity the kit had so much repairs to be done and I wonder why the blade did not just
come chromed. At 1/3th I can understand why you suffered from the sanding. On the positive side you probably managed
to buildup some extra muscles on your forearms & fingers after the workout. :)
Looking forward to seeing more progress pics especially since I like all pointy and sharp things. :P

thanks kuman & beachbum ^_^
almost all part was come in chrome and gold, but because most of the parts were badly mold (sink mark, flash, mold line,
nip mark, bubbles), i've to sand the entire thing, so the chrome was useless, stripping is definitely a must :lol:

test again the dry brushing technique on a BLACK plastic knife, result was better than WHITE spoon, but still easily scrub
off, and its not as SHINEY as the real knife.

picture above looks close but in reality the difference is HUGE, the real knife is on bottom
maybe i should try this:

From this picture without words, I think both are real knife.

Black plastics as base colour looks better thans white plastic spoon.

Very sharp looking build there bro and as informative as ever.
few appreciate the effort in posting pix, so thank you.
looking forward to seeing it done.
Entau - January 12, 2011 04:17 AM (GMT)
thanks bro, i couldn't find a single pics of the doyusha sword useable for my reference, so i think it's nice to share the
process, picture tells a thousand words :lol:

Entau - January 14, 2011 02:49 AM (GMT)


Painted some of the parts black base, but since i was cheapskate, i mixed leftover & unused colors :lol:
mixture of mr color super black & metallic black

then dry brushing using mr metalizer dark iron

use a very rough brush, dun use nice & soft brush, just dip a bit of paint and remove excess paint with tissue paper until left
like 5%

here's the result, IMO very easy to overdone, mean only sees dark iron and no black patches :lol:

Entau - January 17, 2011 03:14 AM (GMT)


The Tsuba was mist spray several times with semigloss black to get some texture on it, then dry brush with mr metalizer
iron

This one is mr metalizer brass

base painted with GAIA flat black, lazy to do gloss coz i duwan to waste time compound :P

base completed

some crack, :lol: but dun k ready, just wanna finish it :P

the saya (scabbard) painted with GAIA gloss black

koowilliams - January 17, 2011 04:29 AM (GMT)


have a feeling that it will look better than the box art...
Entau - January 21, 2011 04:05 AM (GMT)
koo, the boxart look like pasar malam toy sword :lol:
okay, this is the crack i posted before

put some superglue on the crack

carefully sand off with 600 & 800 grit

done, not perfect...but u can tell i dun really k :P

drybrush the kogatanas with aluminium metalizer, then buff again with the black chrome powder, not really what i what,
might redo this

2000 wetsand and then polished the saya (scabbard) with tamiya coarse & fine compound, the top is without polish

the reflection is much sharper & clearer :lol:


Entau - May 17, 2011 03:56 AM (GMT)
okay, final updates....

rubbed the sword with the chrome powder...still thinking of adding the 'wave' effect, but not sure how yet :P

hopefully can finish everything by this week :lol:


kuman - May 17, 2011 04:36 AM (GMT)
wah.. so shiny..
bring this to SMM 2011?
kuman :)
sky_tokyodrifter - May 17, 2011 04:52 AM (GMT)
this is really nice man :o i have to try to build me self one of these katanas.
Make the handle a bit "used" effect to give that antique look then people will believe its real.
I think you can achieve the wave blade pattern but not sure at this stage because it was suppose to be done before using the
chrome powder. For the blades you use super clear so that it shines like hell like what you did and for the blade wave, use
semi clear as base coat so that when you apply the chrome powder, it does not reflect that much to the wavy areas giving a
boundary of bling bling chrome and non bling wavy chrome. Test it on a spoon ^_^

Entau - May 17, 2011 05:53 AM (GMT)


no problem, the powder can be remove using water & soap, then just buff again :P
kuman, i'll try..but i had no idea this built belongs to which category :lol: :lol:
