Thread: My first saber build - "Revenant" / On budget build

    I've changed the look a little bit. The head of the hilt is now mat black. The positive side effect is that the Aurebesh letters gleam beautifully through the mat color.

    ... today I've managed to finish all color filters.

    ...... a little bit more interior is on it's way. The "on budget" crystal chassis.

    I used the internal leftovers from the flashlight plus :
    2 little pieces of a 7mm brass tube.
    3 dome nuts,
    1 terminal strip,
    2 white LED's
    1 trim poti
    1 paper clip
    1 rock crystal

    The yellow still looks nice, but it works well in Sith red too. Looks like you had fun building that!

    A little bit more detailing. I have found a nice bangle in a junk jewelry store.
    Therefore I did some metalwork and bending on the hilt.

    Completed ... and here are my plywood details. It was a little bit tricky. I have to moisten the wood, bring it into the shape of the hilt, let it dry in the sun and in the end mount it on the hilt.

    And as a gimmick : My saber transportation rack. I don't have the heart to throw this red wine transportation box into the garbage can.

    Great job with those last couple details (bangle, wood, etc), they really make the saber!
