Gone but not forgotten.
Brilliant.
That really is a wonderful piece of art...I'm sure it really works too..it looks like it.
You really got the emitter cone right too...what did you use for that? I'd like to add that into my own :)

As others have said...that is the coolest. I love all the real details there, not just a bunch of 'things' but realistic looking and as I said, it looks like it could work...

Wow Howard. Just incredible. I always liked the Luke cutaway some other Board member made a while back, but this one takes the cake. I just can't put into words how much I love what you have done. You should be very proud.

Very nice. :thumbsup

I will definitely be making guts for a "functional" strippable Obi-Wan saber, if ever my Parks USK would arrive... *sigh* :unsure
I had a few ideas already, but this one has given me loads of inspiration. Thanks.

Howard,

Praise from another direction - a fine arts friend of mine shakes his head at us replicating movie props. From his point of view, even a perfect replica is just a copy of someone else's original work. I've tried to argue the "sincerest form of flattery" case, or just that if there's only one of a thing and many people wish to have it, most all of them will have to be satisfied with a replica. Or, the fact that we LIKE building things and props are things that we like.

But, in your case, especially, first the ray guns and now this ORIGINAL interpretation of what is likely the most original movie prop, I think he would have to conclude that this is not copying, but creating.

tip of the hat, nod of the head....

Thanks for sharing your creations with us. (Don't run out of clock works ;) )

Tell your "fine art" friend that the soul of art is copying.

What is it Picasso said, "good artists copy, great artists steal". :lol

And speaking as an artist myself, I can assure you we all go thru a phase of copying.

A copy with a fresh perspective is itself, art.



But I can agree that Howard's cutaway saber is by anyone's definition, "art." :D

:eek I've never seen ANYTHING done with such precision on a prop before...it's like you built a fine watch...SICK...

You really have knocked the cutaway out of the ballpark...

I can't even imagine what a peice like this would fetch on ebay
