This one has been sitting on my bench for far too long, it was time to finish it.
A little back story first, after selling the 2 Duke I bought from Korbanth’s run (too much work required, and no tools or time to do it), I bought a moded and install ready one from Khal. Khal did an excellent prep work on this hilt, big shout out to him, there is no comparison between the raw Dukes I had and this moded one I received from him These mods allowed me to install a Mini R5 too, with a 18500 cell, pretty cool ^^!
- Korbanth Duke run - Various Hilt mods done by Khal - 1? ID bore, sound vent on the pommel, few holes removal, polish & chrome coat, media blasting, recharge port hole, screw gold coat, … - Custom small brass main and aux switches on side grip (brass rod and tube). - X-4 RRGB main Led - Igniter Mini R5 soundboard – Single 18500 Cell - 3D printed chassis, kill key, recharge port holder, speaker holder (with my printer) – 2W Bass Mini Speaker – 7/8? blade
Speaker module and recharge port are both in the joint piece
For the switches, I didn’t want to spend too much time thinking and wanted something reliable too. So there are located in one of the bottom grip (left grip). Cutting a window was the only thing I was able to do with my Dremel btw…
And here is the chassis
Thanks for watching, Cheers

Looking great! I still need to view the vid again when I have less background noise, but the little I managed to hear through (I'm at work ATM), sounding great too! Glad to see more of these getting finished, despite they are "a bit" rough on the edges, people tend to forget these are still the best custom alternatives out there for this particular replica. I personally consider the fat FFX pig way too big.
LOL, loving the curious cat in the background!
"It's not very good, wasn't cheap either... But I made it myself!"
I still have some tweaking to do on the Mini config, but it's a pretty cool saber to play with already I'd like to see more build logs and working saber on this one anyway, see which way other builders go, but I think there are still quite a few build in progress...
GK45: Prolly for the best, my Wisdom Tooth has decided it doesn't like my mouth and has begun seceding little by little and I can't get it pulled for another month yet so sugar isn't my best friend right now...not that it is stopping me.

darthsquidious: I haven't had cake since I was 5, and interestingly I kept all my wisdom teeth. Correlation?

GK45: Supposedly they know how many times you've checked a tracking number and laugh at you.

scarecrow: Then they've gotten more than a few laughs on my behalf. I'm probably their Sam Kinison.
