My Builds: The growing of an eclectic collection

I made these vertical hilt stands to send to my daughter. Her lightsaber collection is growing and she needs some stands that don’t take up a lot of space on shelves. I found this file on Thingiverse but I did not like the way the backbone loosely fit to the base so I remixed it as one part but the top cradle is still a separate piece. I also remixed a version that reduces the base for smaller hilts for both visual and material purposes. The larger one is perfect for the larger Savi Galaxy’s Edge hilts. I plan to make one for myself at some point.

A V2 of the reconnaissance drone was released. Some detail changes as well as increased size. There is actually a V3 now so I need to catch up.

Here is the size difference.

Here on the right you can see what a rubbing of black paint looks like

Here on the right you can see it wet sanded and piloshed to bring out the metallic luster if the silver filament.

Here is the eyes painted, faux LEDs printed, and gloss fingernail polish added to eyes to give a glass appearance.

Which version is the more accurate one the smaller or bigger? The paint application looks great
