    Nice picture. Sounds very plausible. According to my research they produced 550,000 of the ANM2 Brownings by the end of the war.

    Hah. You'd think there would be a few left over for those of us in need, then, wouldn't you? :-&

    Sym-Cha your booster appears to have some letter stamping on the noisy-end. I can see what appears to be a capital L and a lower-case 3. I wonder if this is something that appears on all boosters. I would be interested to know if anyone has any information about letter stamping on Browning boosters. Maybe this is some kind of date-stamp? (can you tell I'm becoming a bit obsessed now).
    Here's both of mine... and yest they do appear to have some sort of stamping on them....

    My balance pipe arrived yesterday. It's beautiful. I'm going to get some threaded rod to do a trial assembly of a full saber.

    I've got a question for you all, what's the actual weight of an only real parts Ben Kenobi saber ?

    I'm kinda the same. I've been a member here long enough that I feel like I could've done like some people here and sought out these things early enough on in their discovery and had a better shot at finding them, and for slightly less exorbitant prices... But I didn't, because I know for me it would become too all consuming (in my mind, my time, and my wallet), and I just have to draw the line somewhere. And if I'm being totally honest it's just not feasible on my budget. So apart from my Graflexes I'm happy to seek out the best available replicas, enjoy these threads on the RPF, and just relax my perfectionist mind a bit.

    Looking good! Maybe swap out the Roman's (I'm assuming) with either the No. 3 or the ANM2 piece to keep it all consistent? Still love that partial barrel jacket!

    Fantastic display Odiwan72. Congratulations on some amazing pieces. Since extra grenades, boosters and balance pipes would bankrupt me I'm planning to do a display with two sabers entirely made from replica parts (the weathered Tunisia and Chronicles versions) displayed alongside my genuine parts build.

    I've decided on doing a Tunisia Build on my real parts, I'll probably be getting a Roman's for a chronicles at some point, though.

    Hey @OdiWan72 ! How much did you have to shell out to get that vintage Ziploc bag? IT'S GORGEOUS!

    Seriously though, you should look for an action figure case protector for your Exactra if you want to keep it perfect. Something like one of these maybe...

    http://www.collectingwarehouse.com/P...FQcdaQodqw8Nrw

    And maybe something like one of these for your spare Balance Pipe...

    Thanks for the compliments and suggestions guys! I was just inspired by the wonderful setups of some other hardcore collectors.

    Might swap the renade and barrel/ booster and see how it looks.
    "Vintage ziploc" ...it was late and I just wanted to have all parts in one place, so I simply put the Exactra in there just as I received it
