No specific scale, it was built "on impulse"....with a mix of materials.
Blades are thick aluminium, cut, thinned and polished.
Handle was made with evergreen plasticard sheets glued together around the end of the blade. Black decoration was thin stripes of paper painted black and carefully glued to the handle.
Other decorations are made with brass sheet and brass wire.
The guards are evergreen, drilled and, painted golden (acrylics if iI remember correctly),
The scabbards where flattened radio antennas. I did not have that match matterials 20 years ago and that gave a strong and hollow container. Polishing the interior was complicated, but you can extract and insert the blades without scratching the soft aluminum.
Decorations is scabbards are again brass sheet and brass wire
Pitty I never added the decoration at the end of the bigger scabbard. One day I need to also add some more decoration with metal or silk, to simulate what real Japanese sword commonly use
