99% done. Might have to rework / add some more weathering (I'm not good at that).

the chassis I hadn't posted. Crappy PVC but it worked after some sanding.


The powder coating, as expected, is really hard. Weathering required some steel files and a hobby knife, sand paper just makes the PC go muhahahaha.
I kept a simple and top side on/off switch, so it's not a bottom activator but well... it still works.
Gluing the grips was not easy at all, but it ended well. I added some screw to ensure they don't go off to fast.

The tiny kill key looks a bit ridiculous but I love it anyway. The recharge port is nicely hidden in the pommel, it's a plus since I'm having holes in the MR pommel, so saving a visible and big recharge port it nice.

Enjoy ! Video soon !

And there you go... a Starkiller.. ERV style :)

Love the end product... and don't worry I think that your weathering looks great :)

The kill key... hey... it's yours... it has a nice charm... plus with it blue.. it matches the crystal.

The Starkiller saber has been a favorite of mine for a long time. Beautiful Erv!

I see nothing "crappy"about that chassis erv!  It looks good!  Nice job on this one!

That turned out great, Erv. Not a thing about it I don't like and makes a very good representation of the starkiller saber.

Monsieur Erv, vous avez un Starkiller magnifique! Je pense que votre travail est dirige par dieu. J'espere un jour nous ferons des affaires.

Translation:

Mister Erv, you have a magnificent Starkiller there. I think your work is guided by a higher power. I hope one day that we'll be able to do business.

MTFBWYA dude.
