Here is one I designed a couple of years ago. Think I can finally get it put together soon.
Uses TCSS parts and sink tube: 1.25" and 1.5" sink tube, the 1.25" sink tube blade holder, 1.5" to MHS and pommel 4 and switch box 4... The grips are made up of anterior cervical plates used in spinal fusions. I'd use tailpiece washers to keep the 1.5" tube spaced out evenly from the 1.25" tube.

I honestly think it may just need a third color added into the mix. I'm a fan of copper and black if that's what you're going for. With proper "forced perspective" techniques and some good weathering, copper can be great. For example, you could have a green blade, and have the copper "patinated" with some of that cool patina paint, and yeah, it could be amazing. here's something for reference:
I love how aged and dirty most things look in Star Wars, and I think more copper added to the mix isn't bad at all
or, if you like it clean, here's a saber render I made via just the MHSBuilder at TCSS:
just adding a third color, like just plain aluminum, could help set it off nicely.
I like the copper you guys, I really do, you all know that you can have ALum copper plated as an alternative to paint, just google it.. I know a great plater.... it could age naturally or you can use patina..
Rogue Five: I was hoping it would be rereleased in theaters for the 40th but alas 'tis not to be

Rogue Five: As much as I hated Waltless Disney buying Lucasfilm, the one good thing I thought could happen was a rerelease of the unaltered trilogy. But turns out they weren't even good for that.

ZahcStarKiller: Buying supplies to install the OM Obi TPM... Anyone know what the best Tri-Cree combo would be without doing RBG? BBW? rB/B/W?

ZahcStarKiller: Best combo specifically for TPM Obi I mean.

ZahcStarKiller: Lol! I don't know about that. I'm awfully attached to it already and it's completely empty.

ZahcStarKiller: I plan to post a full install and reveal thread.
