Sooooooo I started my spray-foam injection experiment the day before yesterday. Didn't quite finish so I'll finish it today. I filmed it so hopefully I'll get the video up within a few days. As promised, the templates are all in this folder of my gallery
But my watchers have seen these all before.
By the way, Master Keeper's chain IS also made of paper. No reason you can't substitute a plastic chain if you decide to build your own. It would make life easier, but I wanted to represent my template.
...I took the 3D model from the game (KH: Birth By Sleep) but had to painstakingly, manually edit it so that the chain, rivets, and handguard details weren't just flat squares or flat-sided cubes. SquareEnix must not have liked what I did, because THEN, a few months after I posted my work, they gave Master Keeper a 1080p resolution closeup
in the "Kingdom Hearts III" trailer.
....I always wonder if game developers are aware of papercraft........ Shoot if I know.
