    Default Cardcollector Presents "Thunderbolt"

    Hey Folks,

    This saber was commissioned via email for a birthday gift. I was not given a design, and came with one based off the request it be "Sleek, Agile, and strong". A Blue LED was also specified. A strict budget was important in this build as well, so to the drawing board I went.
    So after a few days we settled on this design. (render courtesy of Rafelma Rendering services)


    This build was one of the easier builds for CCS, because of the minimal shroud work and the stunt saber electronics. However, just because a saber is simple, doesn't mean it should lack in quality. This saber is constructed using 100% TCSS MHS parts, Sinktube, and grip material. A polishing service was also added by myself for no extra fee because I am rather partial to this design.

    So, Official Specs.
    Hilt;
    - 100% TCSS MHS parts
    - 1.5" Chrome sinktube
    - TCSS grip material
    - Pipe cutter grips
    - CCS Polishing service

    Electronics;
    - 4aaa Alkaline Battery pack
    - Latching Guarded switch
    - 2.2ohm 5 watt resistor
    - Seoul P4 Blue with 10 degree lens running at 1000ma-1200ma

    Nice work, I think you're gonna have one satisfied customer. Also, nice idea using a mirror to take the first picture

    OK The saber is sick! Clean and super shiny! But if there is no sound why the holes on the bottom?

    I GOT to give you props on that CGI rendering! If not for the switch on the rendering I would not know right off. Heck, I would love to just see your renderings!!!

    Thanks. That is a drain pipe strainer, and fit perfectly. The client also may want to upgrade to sound in the future....

    I did not make that render. Rafelma did. He does all my renders and does an amazing job.
