If I printed, sanded, and painted this saber, would it be approvable for Mara Jade -- Green Dress?

I'm no judge and we went through my views in your last thread, no need to rehash that.......HOWEVER, being nitpicky here, the front end of the Saber is wrong, it is ROTS not ESB, the back end is ESB

I'm sure a judge will chime in

which is the ROTS part?

the 2 knurled knobs are correct for ESB.
(ANH had 1 glass dome + 1 knurled knob; ROTS had 1 copper dome + 1 knurled knob).

the bunny ears are turned out at an angle at the tips (correct for ESB and ANH);
ROTS had straight/flat bunny ears with no bent angle at the tips.

it looks correct for ESB to me.. *shrug* ..unless I'm missing something obvious(?)


-==-

either way , if this were painted to look like real metal, then it would be accepted for Mara Jade.

for myself though.. I would only use the body of the saber, and add 'real' parts from the custom saber shop.

ie: replace the 3D-printed grips with real rubber grips; replace the 3D-printed D-ring clip with a real metal one; etc..

I think if the 3D plastic 'base' of this saber was dressed up with some 'real' graflex-conversion-parts, then it would definitely pass inspection.
