Attention at the time of work
Let's consider the following things for accident prevention and health.

-When it uses a thing including the thinner(Bond, lacquer thinner etc) and the spray, make good ventilation.
And wear a gas mask and .
<-I'm using this mask.

-When you toast mterials etc, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes, wear a gas mask.

-When you dig mterials etc with Soldering iron, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes, wear a gas mask.

-Do not use the lighter and tools with heart near the things which are easy to burn such as paint or thinner Bond.

-Turn off an outlet and the switch of the tool as soon as you have finished using it.

-Read labels of materials and tools carefully, and understand how to use.

How to make
Make block construction for carrying.
Use PVC pipe(diameter 32.0mm).
Cut PVC pipe. PVC pipe can be cut by saw. But Pipe cutter is more bettr.Pipe cutter can cat quickly and beautifull.



Use stick for joint. 25cm is best of lenght.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[1]Iron gardening stick sticked "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)"(Taking time, however so good method)

Use Iron gardening stick thinner than PVC pipe as a core.
Cut Iron gardening stick. How to cut is here.
Cut out 2mm(1.5mm is also OK) thick "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)".
Paste with Liquid instant glue.
It takes time, but joint power is high and it don't becomes loose.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2]Wood stick(Easy method, but it becomes loose)

Insert wood stick to PVC pipe in shop,and search good thickness wood stick.
If you can't search it,buy big size.And shave it with Box cutter.
This method is easy. But it is shaved when it is used, and it becomes loose.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Make break to edge in order to joint parts.
Use Freeway coping saw (Normal saw is alos OK, but it's take time.)
If you thing such process is difiicul, there is other method. Details are here.



Cut parts cut short and paste it. Paste with Liquid instant glue.


*******************************************************************************************

Instant glue can plane surface easy.
But it can't narrow surface well.
Then you should use bellow spray.
I always use this.
Watch movie.

For example, use bellow surface.


Instant glue Accelerator
This can stick surface in several seconds.
100ml can stick one armorset or about three weapons..
←100ml ←180ml ←420ml

About instant glue
General liquid Instant glue is OK.


Case of sticking except instant glue.
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) can stick too. It's can stick narrow surface too.
But it's take time more than Liquid instant glue and Instant glue Accelerator.
And "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) may melt stuck surface if you use "Bond G17" painting.
(You should reinfore stuck surface with Liquid instant glue. Or use Gesso painting.)
After all Liquid instant glue and Instant glue Accelerator is the best.

Cut tip slant with Freeway coping saw


Copy the edges of Pattern paper on a material with a pen.
Cut out 2mm(1.5mm is also OK) thick "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)".

It's called EVA foam, EVAzote, too.
Many world cosplayers are using EVA board.
(I don't know well about EVA board, sorry. Plase study by Google)
Or, basicly soft and can bended board is substitutes.
Then find the materials in your country.

When you paint "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)", You can improve quality as follows
by painting the undercoat beforehand.

-Color becomes well.
-Painting becomes hard to come off.
-Gloss comes out well.(If you don't need gloss, you use no gloss paint.
-You can save quantity of the paint.

If you don't use undercoat, you can paint.
If you hope more quality, you sholud use it.

There are two undercoats mainly.
