May The Force Serve You Well


« on: March 31, 2018, 07:33:45 PM »

Next up on the bench is another custom lightsaber build.
This one started life as an Ultrasabers 'Catalyst' that I picked up in a trade


Picked up a new emitter and pommel for this one from TCSS, and I'll also be using the leftover sleeve material from the 'Therion's Fire' build
-here are the parts and a mockup of the hilt



I gave all of the parts a light sanding to prepare for the next step.
Masked off the grip section and painted it up in transparent red. The raised sections will later be sanded for more weathering


Bothe the new emitter and new pommel were given a coat of flat black.
I also gave the sleeve a coat of flat black followed by a coat of bronze/copper


Using my Dremel, I cut grooves in the sleeve material that I then weathered with aluminum black along with the rest of the saber.
The grips were given two coats of aluminum black to make them darker.
The emitter and pommel were weathered with sanding screen.
The blade color is a darker version of 'Pyrestone Orange' with a yellow 'Flash on Clash'
Finished saber:

I gotta say, this is one of my favorite customs you've done. Right behind Therion's Wrath and Fire.

TJ, that is amazing!  I love the updated emitter and shroud, and the copper sheath is very nice!  Well done!

Oy... Something odd with the forum there.  Sorry for the double post!

Thank you guys very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
I really like how it turned out myself. And the colors kind of came to me as I was working on it.
Didn't want just another blackened silver saber

Holy smack Therion I did not realize that was a catalyst, is that the one you traded for with txtuff? If so not only was the mod well done but also super fast!  Another well deserved -1
