Make a 16th Century Gun Sword Part 2

In this part of the tutorial we start the building of the gun sword.


Print up the template and cut out the ten parts.


Tape together parts A, B and C.

And then tape together parts 1,2 and 3.

Then place these nine parts on foam board and trace them. Notice that there is one more part in the template that we don't trace on foamboard. That is the faux trigger part with all the fancy detail work. Set that aside for now.


And notice how I put all the parts to the top of the foamboard sheet. That is becaue you need to trace Part A,B,C twice. We need two of them. So, once you trace it move it down to the open area and trace it again.


Then cut out all those parts.


And notice on the template pieces there are some dots. You have to be sure to transfer these dots to the foamboard too! There is a dot on the "A" piece. You transfer this dot twice. And there is a dot on the trigger piece.

Ok, so here are the nine cut out pieces.


Will's Tip on Cutting Foam board: Don't try to cut all the way through it in one swipe. Use a really sharp blade and make three passes. the first pass just cuts the top layer of paper. Second pass cuts the foam and the third pass cuts through the bottom layer of foam.

Ok, Let's glue these parts together (Continue)
