Hey, I am new to this whole replica prop making thing. I am currently slowly piecing together a lightsaber and i had a crazy idea of using laser diodes rather then LED's. I have 3 red laser diodes that i wanted to implement in to the saber, but my question is, if i had a diffused blade, would it actually show? cuz im not sure if the light would only be diffused at the tip. I do plan on mirroring the 3 lasers back down as to not have an overly bright tip and have the light shining through, but i feel as if the rest of the blade might not light up... any feedback/advice? should i give up on the diode idea all together?
