The 'silver' you see is the layered Ni & Ch not just the Ni, if it was just the Ni giving the 'colour' it'd have a yellow tint to it. Be assured it's Chrome you are looking at.

It's the Metallurgist in me that can't standby while such in-correctness is perpetrated DV :)

Sorry for the derailment Steve! lol

Looking forward to how these tubes will look!

Yes the blanket is from pottery barn kids and it costs around 50 bucks if i remember correctly. I know technically these should be chromed after the holes are drilled. However, that is expensive and I am looking for a way to provide inexpensive accurate alternative for the community. I have tried the standard "plumber pipe" and it just wasnt the right look or feel (to light). Along with ordering about 4 other different kinds of chrome tubing I found this one looks and feels the best. Thanks for the education of chrome though, I always love learning new things.

Any update on this? Cost?
Really interested as this is the closest thing to the MPP other than an actual MPP or heiland 2 cell. :)

Great Job! I think you will have a lot of call for them as long as you keep them affordable! Specially since ParksSabers/GraflexSabers sells their reproduction for about 150. But It's also a working flash with all the saber parts attached (or not attached).

I know I've had conversations about a run of MPP tubes just for Fett fans. Would there be enough interest to do some fact finding?
