I found this on the Modelers, Miniatures and Magic website. It's an incredible looking saber made even more so that it is a 3D render! Who's going to build one? It looks very doable. www.modelermagic.com/?p=41492
It is a pretty nice one. I like the multi-layered emitter shroud going to the grip area. Could do without the "pad" for the rear grip, I think a leather wrap would be much nicer in my opinion. I also don't think that style pommel works well with the overall design.
Great looking saber and yeah, it's doable with some slight modifications to the emitter (and with using a blade plug). I like the pommel as well. However I too do not like the foam padding on the lower half of the hilt.
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.
