A welcome addition to my Tomb Raider collection, this was a simple Saturday build which took no more than a couple of hours.

The difficult bit was actually finding an image I could use as a reference but once I did and printed it out to scale, all that was left to do was cut, shape and carve the EVA foam, fid a couple of bits of wood to use as the handle, paint if up and add some cosmetics and weathering. I may at some point re-make the handle as I’m not use I’m happy with the duct-tape


  • 10mm HD EVA foam
  • Random wooden bits (a split branch would work really well here – thinks!)
  • A spare brown bootlace
  • Silver spray
  • Orange airbrush paint
  • Black airbrush paint for weathering
  • CA Glue
