Lightsaber Guide

Post by RabbiBob » Thu Jan 02, 2020 4:24 pm

I am printing out Luke's lightsaber from the Empire Strikes Back mostly as an attempt to learn some painting (or propel myself along developing a "need" for an airbrush setup). I am using Punished Prop's STL files found here at Bill's site and have started sanding down the pieces to smooth them out.

While I was doing that, I wanted some info on how Luke held the sword because once you get a scaled handle in your hand you find that it doesn't come across as the most comfortable weapon. It may that it's not complete, but still it feels odd. That search led me to https://wannawanga.com/ and then I found the PDF that he has on the site... it is amazing.

Scroll down to the The Original Trilogy Lightsaber Guidebook and take a look at the information in the 97 page PDF that is there. From blueprints to screencap notes, the information there is astounding. So much background information!

I need to get a table together in the basement next weekend for sanding, too much dust to do it in the living room or dining room.

beta!
If the dark side of the force is calling you ... will I have to call Mogul? Or maybe give Doc a laser sword?
