thedazeel #ProjectKit Update 1
-
I've cut some stainless steel and mounted it around the emitter (which I spray-painted gold) to form a shallow shroud around the end. -

thedazeel My newest endeavour- #ProjectKit
-
I shall be modifying this #KitFisto #Habro #SignatureSeries #ForceFX #Lightsaber into my own design. -
I'll use this lightsaber as a foundation to build upon whilst retaining the lights and sound effects. The sleek, simplistic design of this hilt will make it easier to build around. -

thedazeel I am very pleased to announce that #ProjectKenobi is COMPLETE! (3/3)

It's taken a while and been frustrating at the best of times but I'm finished and very proud of my work in recreating the #Lightsaber #prop used by #ObiWanKenobi in #StarWars #ANewHope -
It's is a conversion of a #Habro #SignatureSeries #ForceFX Lightsaber with slide-open and illuminated #crystalchamber of my own design.
It has been artificially weathered to give the feel of a relic from long ago during the days of the #JediOrder
After 19 years on the desert planet of #Tatooine it's not had much upkeep. -

thedazeel Here's some of the illuminated #crystalchamber #lightsabers I've made in the last 6 months.
The furthest is my first ever attempt at a #CustomLightsaber, a simple plastic #AnakinSkywalker toy conversion.
The second is a custom-assembled plastic saber made with "build you own lightsaber set" parts and the third is my completely original, #upcycled metal lightsaber built from scratch.
I like to think I've come a way in the last half a year of building them. -

thedazeel On #StarWars-related note. I bought this #Hasbro #BlackSeries #DarthVader the other day and I'm very impressed with the quality. Full material cape and robes, 2-piece removable helmet and just insane detail. Plenty of articulation for great poses such as his trademark force-grip.
For £20 I couldn't ask for much more awesome. -

thedazeel #ProjectKenobi Update 6
-
Been slowly working on the #crystalchamber. Whilst not fully finished its pretty much there.
I wanted to go for a brass-internals style but with wiring to keep it the same style as the internals seen in the DK #StarWars Visual Dictionary. -
I haven't installed a proper illumination, the one here is temporary. -

thedazeel #ProjectKenobi Before and After. -
I bought a standard #Hasbro "Signature Series" #ObiWanKenobi #Lightsaber and modified it to resemble the prop seen in #StarWars #ANewHope -
It's still a work in progress. -

thedazeel #ProjectKenobi Update 4

After much (frustrating) searching I finally found a suitable crystal for my #Lightsaber #crystalchamber
It was a clear "smokey" quartz which I coloured blue with a simple marker pen. :P
Low-tech, I know but the results are acceptable. -

thedazeel #ProjectKenobi Update 3
-
Today I worked on the control box.
Before, it was the golden "electrum" activation plate from #RevengeOfTheSith but I much prefer the older "Calculator Bubble Display" type from #ANewHope.

Not having any 70s calculators laying around I decided to improvise and use a packet of plastic dots that you use on cupboard doors.
I feel I achieved the same effect. :) -

thedazeel #ProjectKenobi Update 2
-
Have begun construction of #crystalchamber and sliding mechanism.
Also have made cosmetic changes to the hilt such as removing the small orange button and replacing with more accurate silver knob. Decided to keep other button as it looks cool. -

thedazeel #ProjectKenobi Update 1
(WORK IN PROGRESS) -
Removed the inaccurate neck from the #ForceFX #ObiWanKenobi #Lightsaber and replaced it with a rebuilt version made from #upcycled parts.
I have discarded the blade.
This lightsaber won't have a blade.
It'll be display piece only. -
I will be painting once fully constructed.

thedazeel Introducing #ProjectKenobi

My newest endeavour.
I'm going to take a #Habro "Signature series" #ObiWanKenobi #ForceFX #Lightsaber, completely dismantle and rebuild a more screen-accurate replica with opening illuminated #crystalchamber -
