    Mar 3, 2010, 8:43 AM - Obi ANH Sabers: What do you have? #1

    Over the years we've seen two (soon to be three) companies issue licensed versions, a few from cottage industry vendors, a multitude of parts runs, and even a select few constructed with genuine parts. It seems like just about everyone who wants one must have, or at least had, one by now. My question is: What do you have?

    I don't think we need to flood the thread with pics, as a description would probably suffice. Overall, I think it'd be interesting to find out exactly what's out there.

    You should have waited until Russ finishes the pommels.

    Did you get a correct balance pipe? Post some pics of the saber if you have some!

    At least yours is not loose parts in a box, like mine...

    It was a complete saber from the start, but I have upgraded parts so that I now have something that does not even fit together completely even for display.
    I guess that I could have a few parts custom-altered, but I never got around to. I have also been using the excuse that I'm waiting for parts to come available, but I also have a too short attention span not to jump to doing other projects instead.

    The parts I keep are:
    * Russrep steel emitter
    * Heavily altered Parks' steel grenade
    * Roman's clamp, without the "GRAFLEX" text.
    * Rebelscum bubbles
    * Real transistors with modified ob1kenny aluminum washers.
    * Serafino steel "gear". I have the impression that Russrep's run was identical to Serafino's.
    * Roman's older type of chromed pommel

    But on the other hand... looking at the thing is not the hobby. I also have:
    * Real grenade base plug
    * A couple of quartz crystals
    * A couple of Luxeon LEDs
    * Various TI calculator parts. Exactra and others
    * A few unfinished tiny sculpts that I intend to cast
    * and lots of various tiny tiny greeblies that I have collected
    .. to put on the inside, but parts on the inside is still not an excuse for not having anything to put on display

    I have two Russrep Sabers one in Ali and one in Steel, one original clamp, one replica and real exactra bubbles and some transistors. I am looking for some more accurate transistors and waiting on two of Russ' handwheels....

    Here are two Obi-Wan ANH of mine. I'm not certain who made them ... perhaps you guys here can tell me. One day I hope to own a real-parts screen accurate Obi-Wan ANH in the meantime I'm enjoying these very much!

    I guess since I started this I should show my hand, as it were. I had an all hardware version that I gave away, am nearing completion of one featuring a machined pommel and emitter by Hez and hardware for everything in between, and have started rebuilding a formerly stripped down hardware version buillt around a resin grenade. Maybe someday I'll get an all metal version, but I seriously doubt it.

    Note: the correct bubble strap attachment "in between" the clamp spacers and not among them.

    I am a newb in here, and have started collecting the Russrep parts one by one as soon as they are being released - constantly and (im)patiently waiting for the next part... :-)

    So far I have:
    - Cone
    - Clamp spacer
    - Booster
    - Transistors
    - Bubble strip

    Paid for:
    - Pommel

    Need:
    - (black oxidized) Grenade w/ neck+windvane
    - Emitter

    I would also very much like to get a hold of a replica Graflex clamp out there. Anyone know if/where one can get a hold of one of these WITHOUT the lettering?

    I have one built from Roman Empire parts, one with original parts, a cut-away made from Roman Empire parts, and soon one (or 2) with a Serafino booster, a Roman Empire clamp, and Russ's grenade, balance pipe, and handwheel. Also been working on a hilt with Hyperdyne blade w/o a fat neck.

    A little crospost from my weathering thread...



    Romans handwheel & aluminum Booster, real graflex clamp, Russ's emitter, not sure who made my grenade and windvane, and I machined the spacers that keep it rock solid tight and the emitter nut. I need a more accurate bubblestrip, and on the fence on Transistors... Machine myself or ebay? Not sure yet.
