Can anyone make a Hobbit/Return of the King Cartoon Sting Kit?

The 1977/1980 version of Bilbos Sting is Iconic in my eyes. The hand guard is very attractive and truly deserves a possible recreation.






It occurred to me that the M1957 Swedish bayonet is perfectly sized and makes for a perfect shell to model the hilt around for the Return of the King version of the Blade

The pummel screws on the bottom and the grip pulls straight off making assembly incredibly easy . I unfortunately am not 3d Printer or Machining savvy, however I would imagine making a resin grip/plastic grip to slide on and a machined guard and pummel would be fairly easy to make for the average engineer. The bayonets themselves are inexpensive as well. Should anyone else have interest in this, I might say it would be worth making multiple kits and starting a run thread. Its more or less just an Idea I had but I think It could be a hit. If you have any leads to someone I might ask about this, that would be greatly appreciated!
thanks :3

On a related note, Has anyone else preferred this version of Sting over the Peter Jackson version?
