    Copper orange comes out slightly darker than picky's signature saber
    You are right! I mean Copper Trasparent, not Copper orange, sorry for my mistake. In my opinion the Candy Gold will not give a lot of contrast in your design (looking at the picture there is contrast ).
    It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness, that is life.

    IMO, th Tano shroud to the Emitter seam, all the light holes or none of them, red& green blinkies only, reverse sound, & flush mount the Aux Switch.

    Hilariously enough, I just finished updating my render and said to myself "Self, lets go upload the new image to the thread. Oh, look! BVM posted, lets see what he said!" Lo, and behold, great minds apparently think alike:

    *EDIT* I couldn't just leave well enough alone, I had to update the image to show all views...

    I also updated the parts/work list with the etching and thumbscrews. As well as some other odds and bobs.

    Now to work on rendering the internals

    ELEPHANTS! YOU HAVE MY APPROVAL! (As long as they are African elephants and not those ripoff Indian "elephants" [they're actually camels])

    Thank you for the compliment, null. I love the etching idea too, very cool & personal (just as long as it is an African so Scott doesn't have an aneurysm).

    Well I wouldn't recommend the the copper transparent PC either, it's a great color but not really gold (just a dimmer copper than the jollipop), also it tends to be more dense in the corners and crevices giving it a redish color in those spots. I speak Chinese and think the symbolism in those characters are cool. But don't feel like they're very "Star Warsy" same with the elephant. On the other hand I know that this saber is for your wife and that might mean the world to her. Just my two cents...again.

    You really think putting an elephant on your wife's saber is smart?

    Could be taken the wrong way... Just sayin'

    Sure it could, unless this is the saber for the woman who has Dali's Elephant painting tattooed on her calves, elephant jewelry, an elephant Android case, elephant laptop background, etc, etc...

    I'm not an idiot, I do know a little bit about my wife, and what she likes and what would offend her...
