That's awesome. Thank you. Just getting the list up to date now after a couple of days away.Interested!
So the general idea for this run is to get as close to accurate as possible, including the materials.My apologies if it's been stated, but will the Armitage shanks handwheel be chrome-plated plastic per the original, or chromed aluminum?
Personally, I LOVE the idea of having a balance pipe made of Inconel, but I don't think I'd actually want a plastic pommel, accurate though it may be. I think I'd prefer it to be chromed aluminum.
Thanks so much Dan! I'll get the list updated now. Hope you're enjoying your new Obi Stunt
Thanks so much. I'll get the list updated now. Cheers,Interested
That's great, thank you. I'll get the list updated now.Put me in... Also, the Armitage will have the logos on it? And the clamp?
Thank you. I'll get the list updated nowInterested in a complete hilt! Please add me to the list
I like this ideaAs for the material... I do like the idea of a metal pommel. This was my original plan when I first decided to do a static Obi run back in 2019. Originally, I liked the idea of electro polished stainless steel. This would have a nice weight to it, and wouldn't need to be plated.
All the parts will be available separately, or as a fully built replica in either Chronicles or Tunisia configuration.
There are some who prefer 'in universe' replicas vs. strict prop replicas. In other words, all authentic materials but without the real world lettering. I wouldn't equate that to making changes to accommodate electronics. I think this run can work for both perspectives though. However it proceeds Dave will make it phenomenal.Exactly. The attraction of this run is the potential accuracy of the parts, including the materials used. Switching materials and removing lettering would be akin to making it compatible for FX.
