Hey folks, just wanted to show off my second MHS
build. I've had a hankering to build a real thin-neck and fell in love with blade holder 21/22 in the MHS line. Using that as a starting point, I decided to add choke 2, a 2 inch extension and some MHSv2 adapters to create a thinner diameter section and break up the silhouette. Finishing touches is pommel 4 (without cubes), some MHS bunny ears, a 10-32 brass retention screw and a OneReplicas low-profile control box from their super-stunt Graflex
. Overall the look I was going for was Old Republic vintage, a weapon that was old but well-cared for.
I went for some light weathering on the emitter and choke sections, still debating color/weathering on the control box and lower/pommel sections.
Install was done using some modular Goth3D .99 chassis pieces, including a combination board/OLED holder, recharge port, 20mm speaker and battery holder.
- Proffie 1.5
11-pin pixel connector
- TCSS 15A pre-wired battery
- 20mm 3W speaker
- 2.1mm recharge port
- OLED display
- dual momentary switches in the OneReplicas box
- pixel blade plug, Vader MPP style
Love to hear any thoughts about the design and suggestions on weathering/coloring. Thanks
