    Well I contacted the guy and I've given the green light on the run...
    I've expressed that the final mods had to be done on the final batch and I should have the first off the run by Monday/Tuesday? - What with everyones input the last design 'should' be nailed...

    I'm gonna do these @ $30 shipped...

    Gav.
    Regardless of whether or not the machinist comest through on these, the fact that you were willing to take criticism and re-adjust is to be commended.
    I think this hobby could use a heck of a lot more people like you who willing to do that.
    It's the only way to push the boundaries of accurate replicas.


    That said, fingers crossed.


    PS, is there any chance these could be done in stainless as opposed to aluminum?

    Gino, if it's stainless why do it have rust? I think the ali can be polished to look chrome. Have you seen the Anakin lightsaber from episode 3? It's aluminium but it looks chromed.

    What do you think?

    Fingers crossed here too! or i'm left with allot of darts

    Thanks for the comps, and to answer your question about stainless? it would push the price up a bit... I can ask the guy before he pushes the button? but I cannot promise anything at this point.

    I don't think it's rust on the original darts but rather some other kind of tarnish.

    Also, I know alum can be polished to look chrome-like, but it's also a different color. See the following pic. The original chrome/stainless one on the right has more of a slight yellow-ish tint.

    I'd be willing to pay a bit more for it being in the right material. If these are made to be just like the real thing, there is almost no reason to track down real ones anymore.

    There is always a member who the day after the run finishes says 'How the hell I haven't seen this thread before!'
