I have been researching the various flash tubes and have come up with 4 different hole patterns, the MPP and 3 distinct Heiland variations. I have drafted templates for all 4 versions and have included a picture of each to verify the pattern’s origin.
I have reviewed various threads and there still seems to be a debate over which is the correct flash tube, the MPP or the Heiland. Well after go through numerous pics of the various tubes I can understand why.
To my eye the tube on Boba’s ESB blaster looks to have oval holes, but it could be a trick of the light. The question is which tube was used? Anybody have any clear shots of the tube that they can point me to?
