    Re: Various OT lightsaber parts (update page 8: luke ROTJ v2 lever available)

    This is how I converted one of my Heilands ... the bulb release is covering the brand name 'Heiland' but is attached in one of the remaining screw holes, thus sits a little lower in the shroud with a remaining 0.5 cm gap :

    I just left the opening of the Heiland release button for what it is ... open :

    This variation on the Vader lightsaber theme only has 4 rubber T-tracks, a plastic Blast-Tech shroud, clamp and currently a Larbel MPP endcap :

    I added an extra black x-screw to the shroud to avoid it slipping off when being worn on Darth 'Ugly' Vader's costume.

    Just out of curiosity..

    Is an accurate endcap out of the question?

    Ah, understood.

    Just thought I'd ask since I haven't seen it brought up.

    After ordering one of Roy's new MPP shrouds to upgrade my Parks MPP

    then I started looking at my Vader sabers & realised that I'm gonna need a few more trips to Wannawanga :lol

    my ANH only has 6 grips, my MR ESB doesn't have any grips (because I melted them) & my ROTJ needs a Kobold D-Ring

    I was going to put my old Parks Shroud on my Heiland but then thought I'd make the Technical Manual Saber given that it is clearly based on a Heiland down to the 2 step shroud, Hex end cap & bulb release :lol

    I actually quite like it I read this book so many times as a kid & until I joined here I just thought that was what Vader's Saber looked like

    While I was trying different 'friction' solutions with my bubble strip I had a thought..

    Would be cool to have a thin layer of some sort underneath that would not only provide extra thickness for the TCSS clamp, but would have the circuit board printed on it.

    Re: Various OT lightsaber parts (update page 8: luke ROTJ v2 lever available)

    That is a nice little family indeed. I've got my Roman Obi Wan. My Vader Heiland will be done as soon as Roy's shroud and grips arrive. Still have to put my Luke V2 together (as soon as I get my Ghostbusters projects finished). Anxiously waiting Romans Graflex run.

    If mine turn out half as nice as yours PoopaPopaPals then I will be a happy guy. Nice work.
