    My Victory Saber came with only the Brainmaster, the small gun and the hilt of the sword. Obviously I can't have Victory Saber without a saber, so my first priority was to make a new blade for him.

    However, before I could do that, he needed a good scrubbing. While there is some yellowing I can't do anything about, there was also 20 years of collected dirt on him. So I sat down with some Q-tips, some old wound disinfectant that somehow works for this, and a lot of patience. It sure makes a difference, showing here.

    Then it was on to the blade. I took measurements from TFU.info's pics. I drew the form on styrene and cut it. I then made ridges along the middle. I then dressed the blade in first thin cardboard and then adhesive silver plastic. I planned to do the detailing but I'm afraid it might ruin the finish.

    Now my Victory Saber is worthy of his name again. Next, I'll see what I can do about those shoulder cannons...

    Are you sure that wound disinfectant wasn't called "coro-stop?"
