    Very nice. I like the green details. Is that cast in?

    Cool job MS, looks great! I never researched the ROTJ RF that deep, but here's a MoM photo of the rear side for comparison..

    That's sweet! Can we assume those were originally green lights of some kind? If so that supports my original Rangefinder set up.

    Awesome - very well done

    Is it Hollow?

    So does that mean you can make me one for my almost complete M_S ROTJ bucket.

    You have PM

    I think those might be wires that connect to a white-light bulb. The Jedi helmet originally had the same black detail piece as the Empire helmet, but it fell off some time before Jedi.

    Oh you're right! I can see the glue marks on the MoM RF. Great piece of detail info TD.

    Re: My ROTJ RF

    I keep coming back to this thread for reference! Any chance you might go into some details as to how you did it? So it's cast?...what does inlaid mean? Or did you have to saw the plastic and polish in places? Any room for LED's in the top of the RF?

    PM sent...

    Wow I thought this thread was dead, to get the green line effect I hand filed the 3 channels out then simply painted in a greenw/silver stripe. I played around originally with laying in green wire but found the extra work unnecessary.
