CorSec v3 - Darkside Edition - by Industrial Action
Greetings saber fans! The time has come to unveil my latest custom creation, CorSec v3 - Darkside Edition! This saber was commissioned by mre1207. He was very interested in getting a CorSec saber but wanted a Darkside version of it. We talked about our options to accomplish that and one of the things that came up was his love of the red that I used on The Purge. Arkhan still had some of the PC on hand so we were able to make it happen. CorSec sabers start out as MHS parts. TCSS does a lot of the customizations up-front based on my design. From there it bounced around quite a bit. Caz at Darkside Engineering did a ton of additional mods including the inner chassis, speaker mount, port location, custom brass switches and the pommel insert. I did much of the install but got side-tracked on a few other matters and my good friend Kyle at CSJ Props knocked out the rest for me. I configured the saber to the new owner's specs using fonts purchased from the font makers or on SF. The saber has the Seven Forms as well as Adegan Dual Core and Terraform.
Ok, that's enough talk, on to the specs and pics. Thanks for checking it out!!
Really nice build! Honestly this doesn't look like a dark-side hilt to me even with the red and black, it still could be a Jedi/Sith/Grey saber. All the colors work well together and that is always great. I definitely like your take on the Corrarn Horn saber.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
