Hero for Lord Bane
LB contacted me last year to do a Hero similar to what I did for Enaswede (here http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=25576.0 ).  He did not want an elite version but a canon machined look saber.  Unfortunately we had a lot of trouble with the plating company.  They were too busy with big accounts to do my small requests and I couldn't get my parts coated in copper.

I decided the best thing to do was just make my own copper pieces.  I had a lathe but just recently purchased a small mill so I figured this would be the perfect thing to use it on.  



Specs

LS6 based saber
custom 3/4 neck
custom solid copper neck ring
custom solid copper box top
JQ sabers box
custom main body
PCU with Hero font installed
Rebel green LED

Here are some build pics

Below is the box top I made compared to the JQ brass one...





Below are pics of the neck piece...  









The body...



And finally the finished pics.










Here is a video I made of it.

I really like the less glossy, duller finish, much more canon. Another beautiful LS6 conversion MH! That 3/4" thin neck and machined copper box are really spot on accurate.
