It is with great pleasure that I would like to share these sabers with you today. They are without a doubt the most special project I have worked on yet (and yes, probably the most expensive).
This also happens to be my most extensive build to date, and I would like to thank drjedi for letting me take care of him on this one. It is always a pleasure to deal with Solo's Hold's work, and this project is quite satisfying as it gave me the chance to create a complete system for drjedi. Other than modifying the CF and installing it ,this also includes hand painting the hilt, rotating piston kill keys, blade plugs and 7/8" blades with lathed couplers and shine through tips to match my interpretation of the screen accurate look. Now, with any interpretation of something like a cartoon saber you are going to take some liberties. This is just what I think it would look like if it were to exist in real life. I wasn't a clone wars fan until recently and you might be able to guess why.
Yours truly 100% hand painted Force Witch hilts by Solo's Hold Single Cell Hacked CF 7.5 Tri-Cree Xp-E2 Red/Royal Blue/Green Wired for Psuedo Color Mixing Mode Solo's Hold High Drain 18650 Solo's Hold Speaker Switchcraft In-Hilt Recharge R.I.C.E port in hilt Custom lathed blade plugs inspired by the Clone Wars Season 1 Ep.1 look Custom lathed piston style kill keys inspired by the same episode
Here is a quick teaser until I get the pictures edited and Video posted
Time for the Glams!
As always Thanks for looking and MTFBWY!

lkstarkiller: I wonder how long it will take to get the CF-LS ready. He just said he has a prototype.

scarecrow: He said he wanted to add a lot more to it so I wouldn't hold my breath.

lkstarkiller: Yea, I just watched the video for igniter 3. So that will be my graflex board.
Dec 14, 2017 0:34:43 GMT -5
scarecrow: I'm doing a Graflex with and I3 and Intelliblade, too. MB Chassis with a drop in 18650. I've got high hopes for that one.
Dec 14, 2017 1:27:10 GMT -5
Rogue Five: That's the exact same setup I'm planning for my Graflex also. Show us the way, scarecrow...show us the way.
Dec 14, 2017 2:09:59 GMT -5
scarecrow: You got it. I'll be starting a thread called Scarecrow's Workshop in the Dagobah section. It'll be there.
Dec 14, 2017 2:27:19 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I can't believe it, usps delivered my Roman mk1 to someone else. I really hope he insures his packages for the full price. I can't afford to lose $400
Dec 14, 2017 3:29:09 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I am livid right now..... I don't know if I will be able to sleep tonight.
Dec 14, 2017 3:29:53 GMT -5
scarecrow: That happened to me over Thanksgiving and my neighbor brought it over. You still might get it.
Dec 14, 2017 3:50:26 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I really hope so. It said it was delivered on the 12th though and I have been home the last two days. You figure if someone else got it they would have dropped it off to me today.
Dec 14, 2017 4:08:07 GMT -5
scarecrow: My neighbor was out of town and it sat on his doorstep for five days. I thought for sure it was stolen.
Dec 14, 2017 4:23:37 GMT -5
ARKM: Dang! I hope you get your saber.
Dec 14, 2017 4:26:15 GMT -5
Rogue Five: This has happened to me before and coincidentally (or maybe not?) it was also a Roman's MK1 I was expecting. Tracking showed it as delivered but it wasn't. I decided to wait another day before contacting the post office and sure enough it arrived.
Dec 14, 2017 4:26:45 GMT -5
Rogue Five: It's happened a couple of times with Amazon too where tracking says "delivered" but the package shows up the next day.
Dec 14, 2017 4:28:59 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: It doesn't, it just says delivered front porch december 12th
Dec 14, 2017 4:33:18 GMT -5
scarecrow: Call the local post office and they can do something call a geo trace. That allows them to pinpoint the address it was delivered to.
Dec 14, 2017 4:34:21 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I'll have to do it in the morning since its 3:40 am. I probably won't sleep at all so I will go when they open.
Dec 14, 2017 4:37:52 GMT -5
Rogue Five: I think it'll be in your mailbox tomorrow but still best to make the PO aware of the situation right away in case your package was indeed lost. Really though, this happens more often than you think. It'll be there tomorrow.
