Re: My First Circuit Sword Build - Custom Painted US SNES Style

Thanks guys. I appreciate the positive feedback a lot. I still have some more modifications to make on the shell when the circuit sword arrives( led holes and micro USB), but I should be able to touch those up with the left over paint so that it still looks like the same color as the rest of the she...

Wow! It looks great! Want to sell your shell?

I’m anxious to finish it and see it action.

Re: My First Circuit Sword Build - Custom Painted US SNES Style

I really like it, great job 😁 Curious on the air brushing. How well do you expect the paint to "stick"? Did you prime it first? Thanks for sharing. I actually did prime first. One thing I would recommend to anyone else wanting to do this, is to lightly sand the surface. There is a protective layer ...

Re: My First Circuit Sword Build - Custom Painted US SNES Style

Thanks man! I really appreciate that. It was a bit time consuming but it made me learn to be a bit more patient. I knew I wanted that look but it was your build that inspired me to add the snes cart too. You also helped inspire the screen surround as well. I’m now trying to see if I can make a brack...

Re: My First Circuit Sword Build - Custom US SNES Style

As for the rest of the pics below, I wanted to simulate how it may look once completed. I ordered replacement SNES buttons, but I was not happy with how they looked so I swapped them out with the buttons from my SNES classic controller. I think those reflect the look much better. I also ordered a cu...

Re: My First Circuit Sword Build - Custom US SNES Style

I had a second one printed in black (non resin). I also got a hold of a few sheets of laser vinyl label paper to print out cartridge decals. The quality was nice, and I decided to make them glossy by using the soapy water method on box tape to apply it over the label. The soapy water mixture helped ...

My First Circuit Sword Build - Custom Painted US SNES Style [Completed]

Hey guys. This is my very first build ever. I just wanted to post my current progress. I am currently waiting for Kite's awesome Circuit Sword to ship out next month.
