The Kabuto: First pictures

OK, I pretty much finished the Kabuto yesterday evening.

Green paint and gauze bandage wrapping, as in the original pictures. Made from 18mm Multiplex and an old broom stick.

The pouch looks kind of odd, but actually work pretty well.

I did add a steel spike (hardened the tip) so you can stick it into the earth for a better stance, and of course so the weapon can double as a spear.

First test shots required the removal of the low/center band - the shots went low. I will fix this by changing the band dimensions so the look will be original.

  2. Very cool Jorg! I sent you a Youtube email a while ago asking about something like this. I was thinking of a stickshot, but this is much cooler! You are the Big Dog on the block!

  3. Sieht lustig aus! ist er so lang dass du die Spitze in den Boden rammen kannst und Schießen?
    Ansonsten ist die Spitze auch super geeignet um wildgewordene Schweine zu verteiben!

  5. Tobse, klar, die Spitze ist dafür gedacht, gibt aber auch einen gemeinen Speer ab.

    Carts, sure, video will be up on Sunday.

  6. Interresting, if the top-thing was angled you could use it as a huge drawlengh extender. But I guess then the design isn't like the original anymore.

  8. This could be modified into one of your zombie killers. For instance, close the head up so it is circular and add another band at the top, so it uses six bands instead of five and add your Zombie Hammer to the other end.
