I was going to suggest "R2-VW" as in R2 Vader Waffle.

Your saber reminds me of my set of Blender 3D models I built based on the Astromech series droids.



 This one and a few more can be seen in my gallery in the FanFiction/FanArt section.

Congrats on a nice saber and a point on it's way to you.

Wonderful paint job!

I love how my fellow saber enthusiasts already suggested what I'd initially thought when I saw the color scheme  Smiley  But...

Org I was going to paint the copper aulm parts a gold or copper paint color. However as I was masking it off for painting with blue painters tape, it made more sense to invert some colors and use blue paint.

I must agree... R2-VW is spot-on!  And a point for suggesting it (as well as a point to Infinit01 as Honorable Mention for R2-D3, which was my first thought, too).

Karmack, what paint did you use? It looks black in some photos and a steel gray in others. Beautiful!

The paint is Rust-Oleum Metallic Universal spray paint, color "black stainless steel"

Then on the Initiate V3s (purple) the small rings are painted with Testors "Model Master" gunmetal acrylic. 

The gold on the Initiate V3 is US andoized LE coloring.

The gold on the Aeon V4 is Testors gold acrylic.

Black stainless! I'm tired but I KNEW I'd seen that somewhere...it's on our new stove that we just bought! lol

That is truly a great look for a saber! I've put a 2nd raffle entry in for some standard battle sabers and I do believe I'm going to try my hand on those with that paint. Any "must know" tips? Aside from using the frog tape properly? Thanks!
