    My Obi nears completion...
    I got my real handwheel today...

    My saber's all real parts except the booster (gear) and there's a fine replica 'a comin'...
    I've been waiting a long time for my chance to post these...so here they are...so far.

    I was amazed to compare the handwheel to my other replicas...of the older versions the gav actually comes the closest as far as the cubes go. and I havent seen any yet that get the endcap right yet...

    I bet Romans new ones are spot on though, I haven't seen one yet.

    Anyway, here's the pics...

    That's a nice one, congratulations.

    Gav was really close except for the booster-side cube wall was so off it kind of ruined the rest. ;)

    Not at all, IMO.

    It is however confirmed that at times he preferred an empty hole instead of the cap. ;)

    is that emmiter a replica or just a real, but a variation? (not screen accurate)

    no offense, as you are closer than i will ever be, but after all this... the emmiter is the most important part imho

    the stepdown on the outside is wrong, and there is no tilt to the internal hole ring...

    Thanks guys...

    Yeah, the emitter is a real flow pipe but not THE flow pipe...but I don't care...

    Look, I have 5 of these sabers total...each different. This one I'm striving to use all real parts. This one's my baby and it started with the grenade...

    I hear that there's a wonderful replica being made at some point from a correct Derwent engine flowpipe...I'll use that one on my all replica, but correct replica, parts saber, currently in the works...

    I'll never afford the 4000.00 real emitter...but A friend was nice enough to sell me this one...which in my opinion is just as good cause I can see the real weathering pattern...I can smell the burnt oil and the carbon...and it is a real flow pipe off a Derwent engine...

    It satisfies me completely.

    Now to find a booster... ;)

    Oh, and in my world Old Ben prefered C ;) besides, Roman hit it on the head in my opinion ...C=Blue I like the round shape of the C as well...

    To answer your question about attachment...
    I'll attach it to the booster replica that's coming...I don't know exactly how it attaches yet...that's part of the excitement.

    I seem to recall hearing somewhere that C is for COOKIE, but it's also for "congratulations" as in congrats on finding so many great parts.

    :D
