So wicked! I should have stuck with my oring so windvane color! Damn!
Second, I never seen on any other replica the windvane going up inside the emitter
That's how it is on the MR saber as well
I really like this detail. Still noticing things about this prop!
This is what I'm thinking so far. I think the neck is painted resin with threaded rod coreTo my eyes:
Emitter: definitely machined aluminum
Neck: looks more like weathered copper, but could be painted resin
Grenade: lines look clean enough to be machined aluminum, but given this parts complexity, I would guess the prop department would only make one metal master and then resin cast it. Based on the statistics of this, I’m guessing resin. Possibly machined delrin?
Clamp: plated resin
Booster: See grenade
Pommel: definitely machined aluminum
I could be wrong thoughI don't think the clamp is metal. In the plating process, to apply chrome to resin, you need to lay down a metallic base layer to plate on the plastic. That's what I think we're seeing. There are similar marks on the Anakin ROTS resin saber that they auctioned off last year
