this is awesome thanks for this wat... deposit sent for full doublt hilt kit
where it says saber will need painted/finishing what needs painted? do you mean the black parts only?
Yes, the parts will be unfinished aluminum - by unfinished I mean no paint, no powdercoat, or no anodizing (except for the red thumbscrews). They will look exactly like they do in the pictures of the full and half parts kits. In researching this saber, I found out that there really was never a metal hero version of the double saber. There may have been one back in the early days of production when it was just a half saber, but when it was made into a double saber, it was resin. As such, the metal finish is not entirely accurate, but it looks so much better than silver painted resin. The black is a tough call. In some pictures, details look painted black. In other, it looks like most of the details are nothing more than a black wash. Because I don't want to get into doing 20-40 different paint jobs, I decided to leave the parts unfinished and allow the customer to decide how best he wanted his saber to look. I chose to do the POC in a pristine look as it might have look when it was fist built. Why? Because I lack in the weather-fu department. But someone who wants a more accurate finish may choose to weather their saber.
