Build Advice for 1st timer

Rate this Entry
Hope everyone had a great turkey day . I am looking to get a little feedback/ advice on a first time build. I sadly have not retained any electrical knowledge from the time I spent helping my Dad repair/install A/C units so bear with me. Here is my first rendering and a parts list I was thinking of. The bottom two examples were my attempts at making a shroud to go over the main body. I believe with this and of course the electrical wire I will have everything to take care of light and sound. Let me know if I forgot anything.

    I donīt know if I can place a post of this here...but I need some info about the LED specific "complete blabes" I wonder if you can tell me if this is a complete "lightsaber" or if I need some other parts...again my apologies but I`m a noob in this..

    In the store the item "complete blade" is not a complete lightsaber. It is although a complete blade. That normally includes the blade tube, a tip(shouldered, or bullet), and in some cases it includes diffuser paper. For a complete saber you need to decide far you want to take it. You can just have a handle to carry around. Or you could go a little further and have light and sound. Then you would need to get you hands on the hilt parts as well as any light and sound parts you need. Hope this helped out.
