Hello! This will be my first movie prop replica project, which is fitting, considering that SW is my #1 hobby/passion. I just got in the mail my vintage Graflex, and I wanted to share! Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase. There aren't too many scratches, and all the rust is contained to the inside. However, there are two weird things about it. One, the clamp. The lever seems to be upside down, because when viewed normally ("Graflex" right side up) the lever pulls down instead of up. Two, instead of a rivet holding the bunny ears in place, a really rusty nail-type peg is there, and it is loose, and makes the whole bunny ear-clamp assembly wobbly. But, with the Mylar tape in place over the "graflex" letters on the clamp, I can just invert the whole clamp and the lever then points the right way. And I'm sure with some epoxy or something I can fix the bunny ears. But anywhoo, here are "da pics"!
Oh, if any of you were wondering, I am planning on converting this guy into an ESB "Hoth/Bespin" saber (static for now). Thanks for looking!
