Duron's Lance-A New Custom Lightsaber Build
« on: Sat Mar, 31, 2018, 11:25:PM »
Next up on the bench is another custom lightsaber build.
This one started life as an Ultrasabers 'Catalyst' that I picked up in a trade


Picked up a new emitter and pommel for this one from TCSS, and I'll also be using the leftover sleeve material from the 'Therion's Fire' build
-here are the parts and a mockup of the hilt



I gave all of the parts a light sanding to prepare for the next step.
Masked off the grip section and painted it up in transparent red. The raised sections will later be sanded for more weathering


Bothe the new emitter and new pommel were given a coat of flat black.
I also gave the sleeve a coat of flat black followed by a coat of bronze/copper


Using my Dremel, I cut grooves in the sleeve material that I then weathered with aluminum black along with the rest of the saber.
The grips were given two coats of aluminum black to make them darker.
The emitter and pommel were weathered with sanding screen.
The blade color is a darker version of 'Pyrestone Orange' with a yellow 'Flash on Clash'
Finished saber:




The current collection as it stands:
My more-or-less stock sabers:



My customized sabers:

Well, that's better than spending it on booze and babes.  At least that's what I tell myself when staring at my stash of plastic!   :)
