I did some research on the dart today and I'm now pretty sure that the back half of the propeller spinner was used both on the Death Star Gun (in front of the impeller) and as a little table in the back of Ben's hut. Anyone have the wide angle set shot of the hut by chance?
Anyway, this research led to looking at a whole lot of pics, whic led to looking at a whole lot of other pics.
I think this thread is about to get a LOT bigger.
Very cool! I looked at machine guns awhile back, I had thought this made sense as a machine gun part--but all the guns I saw had 'lathe-wise' ribbing, this is the first I've seen with a 'gear' shaped heat-sink.
I hope this is one of the ones that people sell parts for.
