Addition to backplate WIP
« on: Jan 21, 2017, 05:55 PM »
I know it looks silly now but it will look killer when it's finished

 
Now it's gotten stripped and primered ready for wiring to begin.

Lol. One of our clan brothers said I had to keep the cow on there being that we're based in Iowa.  It would be kinda funny to be trooping and hear " the cow says,,,," lol

Kinda hit a snag with the soldering (because I'm not good at it, lol). I'm not sure if I want to go with 2 wide or just a single set in each spot.  Still don't know what I'm going to use for a defuser.  Any suggestions?

Side by side set



Single set (light test)

Nice!  I think a single set would look cool.  Side-by-side might be a bit too much.

As a defuser? Clear gift wrap is something often used for lightsaber hilts. You'd have to put down a few layers of it though.
Something like this https://www.amazon.com/Craft-Party-Super-Clear-Cellophane/dp/B01KYAZIU2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1485557854&sr=8-3&keywords=clear+gift+wrap
 can be found at places like party city, that's where I got it.

If you want something more rigid there are a few options.  My blaster uses a Cree LED from a lightsaber so I took an old tupperware lid and scuffed it up with some fine grit sandpaper.  That is what is diffusing the light in my forum pic.  Works great.  Another option is cutting a cover out of the side of a milk jug or other semi-clear plastic.  If you wanted something more rigid.

I have a clear acrylic 12"x12" sheet that I was going to use but I'd like it to be red so at a troop in the light it still looks red. I have a few ideas and some test material I found at work I'm going to try. But I think sanding the acrylic would work great. I kinda did the same thing with my blade plugs for a couple of my light sabers.  Thanks for the help!!!
