Park's MPP Vader ANH for Oshebile

Vader ANH (MPP replica) for Oshebile

This is a 100% new build for Oshebile.  He requested a Parks MPP as a Vader ANH with PC and a crystal chassis visible under hte clamp.  Those were my only instructions (other than his custom boot sound and a second accent LED 'somewhere').  So i built a full chassis, even though only part of it is visible.  I machined a custom crystal chamber out of aluminum that attaches the chassis to the BH.  I will include a few pix...it reminds me of a SG-1 relic of some kind, lol.   I offset the clamp just like the canon prop, but the crystal chamber window is big enough that he can rotate it if he so chooses.  I used the MPP buttons for the switches on this saber as well. The silver cone knob is the main activation switch and the black inset button is the Aux.  The sound font?  Madcow's Vader ep IV of course!

Particulars:

Parks MPP replica
Petit Crouton v1.4U with Madcow's Vader
P4 Red
5mm HO LED in the crystal
3mm HO LED in chassis (power indicator)
Faceted replica Lead crystal
LDM chassis
7.4V Li-ion recharge/kill in pommel (2.1mm)
Graflex Shop MPP BH

I love this. I have been wanting to do a Vader out of an MPP as one of this year's main projects and this one just inspires. Great build, LDM and congrats, Oshibile. You got yourself one uber Vader there.!
