Thats awesome work, loving the details you put in that thing- bad ass. Noticed it chain operated, is that heavy?

The chain is made of nylon so it does not add much weight. It has become a little heavy just because of everything packed in it. It weighs 6 pounds. When it is clamped on it fits snugly and feels pretty good.

Gorgeous and deadly. Amazing work and really cool to see how much time you put into making all the details for your projects.

Thanks all. I'm still monkeying around fabricating points of attachment for the housing. It is a pain. I just got done building a face plate to cover the opening for the blades on the front of the housing. I couldn't really sculpt that part as the exact blade position was impossible to figure during the sculpting process. I'll get a couple more progress photos up this weekend.

this looks so awesome,all the little details.It looks like a movie piece (y) are the blades made out of metal or resin cast?

Actually the blades are made of Lexan which is pretty tough. This thing could push real blades but what would be the point. It weighs enough as it is. Thanks for the comments. It is getting very close to completion.

Ok, I was out of town for 10 days but I finally got the blades painted today. Sometime this week I WILL have a video up of this thing done and in action.

Are most of the little details hand crafted? Or are they parts from various items? (like models etc) i am loving the detail work there sir!

Hey Ofak, I used parts from model ships. The scale is to tiny the pieces are hard to figure what they are from. I guess if you build model ships you would know. I figuring people who like pred stuff probably don't build model ships.
