The clamp on the V2 in ANH is NOT bare but I don't think that lasted during ESB or Jedi.

The death saber seems to have tall transistors though too

So I know the e-book has blueprint style drawings for the V2, but is there anything comparable for the V3? Recently started to get more interested in that version, was wondering if there was any resource like that.

Given how long it’s been since an update, I wouldn’t say that!

Just wish we could reach consensus on things and new discoveries just to pause for a minute.

New ANH debating and V3-V? shenanigans are holding things up!

I'm glad there hasn't been an update. The ANH obi stunts are a whole mess. The ESB sabers... there is now one with a tri-ring, and the bladed stunt(s) had foil tape on them and were longer? crap, yea, thank you Seth, for everything

Wait if they are longer does that mean the antenna find wasn't it? There's too much to keep up with, lol!

The actual stunt hilt seems longer and wrapped in foil tape! The antenna blades are still good as far as I'm aware.

I think this should be corrected (about the silver screws):

What's on this picture is not silver screws, but some snow stuck on the black screws. Here are some higher resolution images:

I'm not sure if there was a version with silver screws at all (maybe there are some promo or behind-the-scenes pictures) but in the movie on Hoth they are always black in all scenes as far as I can tell.

I love it when higher res images appear and change everything. If you follow the line of logic...

SNOW looks to be the reason behind rivets being on the Graflex in the ST!

I also see a strip of tape that breaks around the screw or notch. Maybe they gave up epoxy entirely after they fell off
Humm, I think I see some glue under the t-track that's above the kobold clip and on the lower t-track I see that the edge caught some snow, but no tape ? Did 2-sided adhesive tape like what we use today for the grips already existed in the 70s ?

By the way I've also checked the indoors scenes ... and when Luke says goodbye to Chewie the grip looks like there's something silver on it:

However .... to me it does not really look like screws are silver, but something like this:
