    Hey good find. It definitely looks like the bottom of the RF. Can you give some measurements?

    It's the correct piece. There are jillions of them on EBAY and we found them last year but they are still pricey for just the eye piece, but if you are going for accuracy it is the real deal.

    sweet find. i'm glad that part fell off in rotj, otherwise i'd be really tempted

    That'd be the part. Have fun getting it off, they sure didn't make it easy (there's no gentle way to do it).

    SCHWING! As soon as I saw that photo I ran into the spare bedroom and grabbed that exact camera! I just need a new clear piece (lost at Dragon*Con 06) and my rangefinder is all better!

    You mean to tell me that you've been sitting on this camera all this time, you're a Fett freak-head, and you've never noticed what you had? JFJR, what are we going to do with you?

    I would keep it just because of the age, and now because of the RF part..the resemblance is really good.

    What's the model number on that camera? Can you show a better picture of the entire thing?

    great find kanol matea. The best way to get this is to purchase junked cameras that are being sold for parts. I was able to get 4 in a lot for about $36 a few months ago. I pretty much had to destroy the cameras to get the viewfinder off and then you have to cut off the little molded in ear pieces, but it is awesome to have the found item. What is even more fun is to print out little images from the movie on a piece of transparency and put it behind the viewfinder!

    Nah, but many thanks go out to inactive member TylerDurden and his sources known-only-to-him for nailing the case closed on this one.
