In fact, the double helix sword is so huge that there's a real risk of your papercraft model tumbling over...
So it might be worth it to make the sword out of regular printer paper, and make sure your take your time to assemble the arms and hands correctly!

Check out my weblog for the release: [link]

DON'T make it out of regular computer paper! Or you have Fierce Floppy-Sword Deity.

Yes, it's because Fierce Deity Link's sword is *bigger than himself*...! (why a legendary hero would need a sword *that* big is beyond me ;o)

I always recommend using thicker paper for strenght, and that definitely goes for parts that this big! ;o)

Wow I just checked your site. I like that you didn't try to change the jagged graphics of the n64 but somehow managed to make the twilight models look amazing you get :llama:

Thanks! I really like the polygonal look from "old" videogames, which looks great in paper! But the paper models from more "modern" games do look better when they're a bit "smoother" I think. ;o)

ooh! i want to try! it looks like it fell out of the game, excellent work! when you say "regular printer paper" for the sword, what kind is used for the body?

Thank you, I also really like models like these, from "old" games where you can really see the "polygons"! ;o)

I always use thicker paper for my paper models, of 200 gsm (grams per square meter). With regular printer paper being about 75-80 gsm, 200 gsm is about 2.5 times as thick.

But some people told me that if they put the sword in the hands of their FD Link, he fell over because it was so heavy...! ;o)

It might help, but if it's not enough, another solution is to put some extra weight in his boots or to glue him to a stand.

Thanks, with paper models from older games it's really fun to emphasize their polygonal look. ;o)

There really are *a lot* more paper models out there nowadays, you should check it out if you like it!

Oooo. Is the size based on a screenshot? I knew the sword looked huge, but it looks so impressive with a ruler next to it. :XD:

The model was based on the ingame model, so the proportions between Link and the sword should be correct. It is indeed huge. ;o)
