So yeah.... I *promise* pictures later today, one way or another. I got a camera to borrow yesterday/last night, but don't have a connection cable to upload them to the computer.
In the meantime, I realized that I should really get crackin' on the sword's handle, since it's created separately from the main part. Got pretty far yesterday... got the wood, metal, and drill holes done in one shot. After school, I continued on the fiberglassing and bondo work. Still needs a lot of work, but I'm glad I'm more than half done with the handle already
The sword, however, is bothering me. Aside from my cat wanting to rub against it (with wet fiberglass resin) every time I lay down a new coat, it's going to take longer than I thought. I think I might have a good go at it when I wake up later, then take a break from it for the weekend.
