    Merci beaucoup VS !!! It has been a lot of fun to make this toy, i wanted one of this this since my seven´s so I ended making one myself at my 36´s in 2007 :p i used to work in aircraft structures and used my skills to build this.It is made from scracht from copper tubing then nickel plated as the original graflex.

    Muchas gracias a mi amigo I waited a little longer I was 43 when I made my first sabre. We share the same birth year and I used to be involved with aircraft too though not as skilled as yourself.:cheers

    I agree, Very smooth and clean work :)

    When you get around to working again, you'll need 2 extra grips!

    Nice build ... and all original hand made ... fabulous. As for grips you could always upgrade with T-tracks from wannawanga.com :)

    That's awesome machine skills. How did you make the shoulders and the two verticle slots near the emitter?
