    The more I look at these pictures, the more the T-track looks angled and not flush with the body. I used rubberized superglue on mine and they haven't budged in years.

    Although I've already posted these in the ROTJ V2 lightsaber thread, thought I'd also repost here images of Roys V2 clamp lever in situ.
    I believe you'll agree he did an excellent job replicating these.

    Roy! I just got my parts in the mail today. Not only did they arrive lightning fast, but they are all absolutely exquisite! I'm about to order more in fact! I noticed that the saber hooks have a bit of grease on them. Will they need to be oiled to keep from rusting or are they stainless?

    Thank you for making some insanely accurate and high quality parts.

    Thanks Psab! I'm really happy with all the positive feedback!

    The belt hooks ARE made of stainless steel. There's some WD40 on them for some extra protection, but you can swipe that off.

    The injection molding tool making is taking much longer than expected. I am waiting myself for an update and a new schedule. As soon as I have talked with this company, I will give a new update. It all depends on a few small changes to get the part right. Small is it might be, the devil is in the details.

    Good news! The aluminium parts for MPP shrouds arrived!
    They look fantastic! The next step is to get them coated with wrinkle paint.
    And the custom made thumb screws are also nearly done.

    2 Step, Shmoo Step! I could slap whomever it was at MPP who made the decision all those years ago to make two different shrouds!
    I need this new shroud, ASAP, Roy. It's number 1 on my list.

    Well my two step is on a heiland... one I picked up years ago. I've been wanting to slap some parts on it to at least have it serve it's purpose, but bugged by the inaccuracy.

    I bought a clamp and a bulb release... and some t track... but do I REALLY want to swap out a shroud as well? especially when I have square holes on the side? It's already inaccurate... why do I keep throwing money at this thing!?! heh.

    The incorrect shroud of a Heiland flash is very similar to a correct MPP shroud, but has two steps instead of one.

    Roy,

    I'm not sure if this was mentioned already, but will the new bubble strips be matte/frosted like the previous ones?

    Also, will they be "flat" and slide under the clamp edges or will they have the thicker edges like the real bubble strips? (I prefer to squeeze them between the clamp edges rather than have them loose and sliding around underneath.)

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

    Yes, the bubble strips will have a frosted top surface (not the bubbles themselves of course). And they will have a thickness and width meant to slide in the clamp precisely without preparation. So they'll have a little more width than a real Exactra strip, to be steady inside the clamp.
    I will post an image as soon as I have a finished sample.

    I hope someday you (or someone else) can offer some super accurate and clear ones. The real deals have that ever so slight glimmer to them that is hard to replicate in a casting or replica. The Rebelscum casting gets the accurate shape down, but they still look slightly "dull" when compared to an original. Plus all of the strips I've pulled from the Exactra 19 have been clear and only a couple from the 20 were frosted.

    Yeah I think it looks good.

    $130 shipped though.

    Was this good for a proper Heiland?

    I'm not 100%, but I believe that end cap is the SECOND closest to the real MPP flash. There's another that is knurled more accurately, with only the HR logo and no other writing.

    Ok, good to know.

    It's funny because I was NEVER really into Vader's saber that much.

    I have a gutted '05 MR ESB that fit my bill just fine..

    until I saw Roy's shroud. Shwing.

    As long as I have oval plugs, correct guts (Vader's guts are THE coolest), correct shroud (a la Roy), accurate clamp and grips, I'm fine with it,

    The only real problem you'll have is that there will be an unwanted hole at the front of the flash where Heliand put the bulb release button compared to MPP that had theirs on the back.
