    Shipped out a few more weathered kits today, and... one AFBB.

    I'm shipping both of these out tomorrow, and am very happy with how the weathered version turned out. Seems that 'weathering' is like falling off a bike! Came back to me pretty quickly.

    The machine finish hilt will be weathered by it's new owner.

    Anyways, here are a few pics :

    I'd happily own either of them, but the weathered one is simply gorgeous!

    Things of beauty... like staring at a pair of perfect boobs. I have one of these that I can look at and hold any time I want, and I still never get tired of looking at pictures of them.

    Fantastic!

    I'm doing an AFBB for someone this week. Here are a few progress pics, with more to come this weekend:

    All parts together, some before oxidizing and chrome:



    Chrome emitter & clamp, polished windvane:



    Going to oxidize the grenade with Perma Blue (also works on brass) :

    I think these pics are converting me into an Obi-Wan saber fanboy. It might be taking my #1 favorite spot from the Luke ROTJ.
