This has been a little over a year in the making, but finally got the Crystal Chamber in for my MK1. Chamber is made by Rudy Pando, in VERY small runs. I removed the default inserts and crystal and replaced with 3d printed Brass parts and a hand selected quartz crystal.

I can finally install it now.

Display is the MK1 up top - it is getting:
-- Prizm 5.1
-- RGB LED (matching LEDs in crystal chamber)
-- 18500 2000mah Li-Ion battery
-- ShtokCustomWorx chassis
-- Under card switches
-- Saber Essential Speaker

Bottom Saber is an OWK - Neopixel on NBv4



Shot of the Chamber (i haven't drilled it out for the transistors yet so only one visible in the shot)




I'll be here drooling over this all weekend...

Very nice Jas! That chamber is one of the nicest ones out there right now...those chambers look good by themselves, but seeing it installed in the hilt makes it look even better!

The chassis for the hilt that mates with the CC is no joke. I think its 9 or 10 pieces all together. Good news is that it's not a "reveal" chassis so no need to paint it or get it done in metal. But yeah I don't expect it to be easy, VERY tight on space.

Simply beautiful chamber! Far too intricate for my tastes personally (I'd be afraid of breaking it!), but God, to just look at it... :ohmy:

Obi-Wan ANH Saber - Finished

Roman Props MK1 - FX version:
-- Additional weathering added to hilt
-- Rudy Pando Crystal Chamber kit - upgraded with 3D printed brass inserts and hand fitted quartz crystal.
-- Prizm 5.1 Sound Board
-- RGrB Main LED and matching accents for CC
-- 18500 2000Mah Li-Ion Battery
-- 1.3mm Recharge port
-- Saber Essentials 2w 4ohm 28mm speaker
-- ShtokCustomWorx chassis with steel support rods
-- Under card switches

This has been a while in the making, I received the CC from Rudy Pando just within the last two weeks and finally set aside the time to get everything installed. This was my first MK1 install and it certainly wasn't very easy. everything is tight and short on available space requiring exceptionally clean wiring runs and really nothing in the way of extra space. I can't stress how well engineered the chassis is. Dmitry knocked this one out of the park.the tolerances are amazingly tight. Taken all together, the over all design and engineering of everything is just fantastic.

The MK1 is simply a gorgeous hilt in and of itself, even just as a static display piece. It has such wonderful weight, and faithfully reproduces Obi-Wan's ANH hilt with near perfect levels of accuracy. Add in Rudy's Crystal chamber and you have a work of art.

This build had its challenges, requiring me to rethink my wiring a few times for tighter runs and to maximize the limited space available. but the final product is was so worth the effort involved.

Thank you to Roman, Rudy, and Dmitry for the wonderfully detailed and solid parts that went into making this saber. We are truly blessed to have such passionate and dedicated people creating these for us. My hat goes off to you.

10/10 :woohoo: The Roman's Mk1 is one of the best hilts out there, period, for any design. What a great install!

Very nice, I like!

Not sure how I feel about the RGB though... Think I'm gonna do rB/B/PCA or rB/B/R (because on that pink FoC during Death Star duel) on mine.

I wanted to get that light ANH blue and felt a royal blue/green mix would provide the best color, so made sense to go with RGrB in the end. plus it's fun to play with crystal chamber colors on a natural quartz crystal cause you get these awesome slight color variations.
