thedazeel A few more closeups of my (work in progress) crystal chamber.
At this point I'd like to mention that this is indeed a Roman Props 1:1 'A New Hope' Obi-Wan Kenobi replica kit. This particular kit is the static replica, machined non-finish (plain, no paint or weathering) version however I've been working on it, building a crystal chamber/chassis into it whilst retaining the screen-accurate exterior. --

thedazeel (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Crystal chamber is coming along.
Spent all afternoon detailing it and figuring out how to illuminate. It's getting there, just needs a bit more... something. #ProjectNewHope

thedazeel Lower hilt assembled and I drilled into the mid-section and built the basic structure of the crystal chamber.
Now to tinker with detailing and hopefully viable solution for illumination. -

thedazeel Shameless plug but if you're also on Twitter, why not follow me?
I almost exclusively talk about my other biggest interest - video games.
However as I'm a giant nerd so I also discuss pretty much anything geek culture related.

thedazeel Just playing around with some crystal chamber prototypes. See what I can make work. These are just the basic structures without any additional details.

thedazeel Final throwback photo. This one is just a "Dark Side" hilt I built almost 2 years ago. Doesn't do anything, just built out of scrap.
Supposed to be an older, almost ancient design of Sith Lightsaber. --

  •   marc_weeums How do you make those lightsabers? They're so cool! 2w
  •   thedazeel @marc_weeums This one is literally made of junk. Metal parts, flashlight handle, and a stunt peg from a BMX. Then painted and "weathered" to look old. You can make a Lightsaber hilt out of anything cylindrical really. 2w
  •   marc_weeums Ok thanks for the help. Sorry for sounding annoying earlier, I just got really excited because I'm a total nerd. 2w
  •   thedazeel @marc_weeums No worries. Thanks for your input. :) 2w

thedazeel Trip down memory lane. Here's another throwback photo to about 2 years ago.
This here was my second "prototype"/attempt at making a crystal chamber. Still using plastic parts (mainly from Lightsaber toys) but this time I focused on the design of the chamber rather than the sliding mechanism. Also this was before I started using real Quartz crystals. The crystal here is two plastic earrings glued together, filed into shape and coloured. (Such a n00b, amiright? ;P)

It also used to illuminate but batteries died long ago.
(Notice how dusty it is too. It's been laying in the Jedi archives for years.)

thedazeel This is a throwback to my very first "custom" Lightsaber project from well over 2 years ago. This was a very early prototype/first attempt to see if I could build a sliding mechanism into a narrow hilt. So rather than try it with an expensive metal hilt I bought a cheap plastic Lightsaber and built a very rough crystal chamber inside to see if I could do it. This started my interested in custom lightsabers. --

  •   number.twelve Is that the head of a sonic screwdriver in the middle there? 2w
  •   thedazeel @number.twelve How very observant of you. Yes. I built it out of whatever junk I had laying around. 2w
  •   number.twelve @thedazeel Very cool! I love seeing builds like that. It reminds me of how a lot of the original props and ships were built for Star Wars. Recycling old guns and model kits. I'm loving your sabers, by the way. Very cool. 2w
  •   thedazeel @number.twelve Thanks, I like to think I've come a ways since tinkering with plastic parts. I work with as much metal as I can now for realism. 2w

thedazeel Side-by-side comparison of before and after modifications. Apologies for poor quality "before" image. --

Spent the last few days adding some modifications to my Graflex crystal chamber. I removed the old LED section and replaced it with a much brighter 3-LED which has greatly improved the illumination of the crystal. Also added some additional "power conduits" for detail and repositioned the crystal. --
