    Hey everyone,

    I've been looking and can't quite find the measurements/dimensions for the booster section of the Obi Saber, does anyone have them?

    I was thinking of making a crude version with just some dowels and a jigsaw/dremel, sand it down..haha has anyone done that before?

    the archived threads have no pictures, so it's a little hard to use those

    The basic dimensions should be found in Darth Saber's blueprints of the saber. They should be available somewhere.
    A quick Google search revealed: Blueprint drawn by DARTHSABER

    I think you would probably get better results using a base dowel/pvc tube and build up the "fins" using t-track, card, or sculpting clay

    Kevin - What is T track? (sounding famillair....)

    and Darth Lars, thank you! I wasn't sure who made those blueprints so i couldnt search for them.

    T track is used on the grip sections of the Luke and Vader sabers. Thinking about it more, you probably wouldn't be able to find track tall enough to give the right effect. But you get the idea :)

    Sorry Kevin, there is Plastruct T track that could do the trick I just cant really find any

    those real T tracks on the vader and luke sabers are much bigger and rather different material

    Thank you Sym Cha!
