Gemini Concepts Presents... Vulpecula, a Petit Crouton 1.4 Saber
« on: November 15, 2010, 03:38:34 PM »
Hello FX-Sabers!
We had a couple of MHS ribbed sections lying around, a good Qui-Gon style Bladeholder
and an MHS sleeve... so here's what we came up with.  It's obviously inspired from Qui-Jon Jinn's saber
in The Phantom Menace.  Hope you like it.  It'll be in the Trade Federation later tonight.

Vulpecula

MHS Blade Holder Style 18, highly polished and trimmed in Translucent Gold Powdercoat
2 MHS Ribbed Extensions, highly polished and trimmed in Translucent Gold Powdercoat
1.2 double female adapter
MPS pommel style 4 with insert
Activation box style 2
Handcut MHS Sleeve Material, polished and Powdercoated in Mirror Black
Bin 2 Cyan, LUX III on QD
Petit Crouton 1.4 Soundboard
Illuminated Blue Dot Anti-Vandel Momentary Switch
Black Momentary Auxiliary switch (Style 20)
2.1mm recharge port
7.4v Li-Ion battery pack created by QUI-GON.
TCSS premium speaker
Custom Blade Plug


On to the pictures:

Thanks Caine
It's the First PC I had a chance to wire up, ...nice little board. And putting this in a Qui-Gon inspired hilt was great, since his is one my favorite hilts.

Great job. I really like the powder coating work. It looks real slick. I wish the TCSS store offered a nice selection of powder coating colors like this. :\  This is going up for sale later you say? Hmmmm.
May the force be with you all!

I know! But it appears that I don't live THAT far away from her, so I figured I'd give her a friendly ribbing. ;)

Thanks everyone.  The original color scheme was going to be red and blue... but I REALLY like the black and gold.... almost as much as I like Brass and Copper. 

BTW... it's for sale:  http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=27223.new#new   ;) :) ;)

I love it when she does that.  ;-)

This is probably my favorite piece of work from you two.
