    Yesterday i was toying around with some new stocked Delrin - i made the scope for my Jabbas palace guard blaster, and as machined Delrin has the tendency to mess absolutly the whole shop, i made another part to have only one cleanup.

    The second part became the grill, that was original intended as the ribbed part on Leias ANH-Trooperkiller - but i messed my measurements and it ended 3mm to long.

    So i was thinking "why not build a commlink from it?"
    For a commlink i need a mic-tip - and i´m not that educated on this part as some of you are, so i request your help.

    I know that they are offered by Mark and Keith over on the F.I.S.D. (anyone else?) ...... if i decide to make a commlink from it, i only would need a single one. They come in pairs, so when paying for 2 and international shipping while only needing one, i want to end with a really good one. Prefered not completly hollow with a "interesting" looking inner part behind the screen, not already black painted and then assembled as i need it a shiny white, should be with a hole in the back to use a bolt to fasten it.

    Now my main question: For what version shall i go? Any advice is appreciated. :)
