    Hello :)

    I was just curious if anyone had a copy of the plans for the Qu Rahn/ Kyle Katarn lightsaber used in the game: Dark Forces 2. I'm interested in getting this saber machined so I need a copy of the dimensions. Thank you :)

    You need to talk to Bill from the RL. He is the best that does it. Here is his profile. I will tell him to check these boards

    Hope this helps

    Here's mine:

    It was made off these plans:

    The sabersmith was Phil Higgins (neophil from the custom saber shop forums). I'm not sure if I still have the hi-rez version of those plans, I'll have to look.

    "Bill in the RL" and KodaVonnor posting above is the same person. ;)

    Here is the high-res version of the blueprint above.
    Personally, I think this is the best, most detailed interpretation of the original saber that you see in the cut-scenes in the game.

    No one would also happen to have a copy of the plans for Jerec's lightsaber would they? (this is the last request I will have for plans- promise :p)

    So I have to wonder, how does that shroud work about 3/4 from the bottom? It wraps around the side and does what exactly? Could you post another pic KodaVonnor?

    In the blueprint you can see that it wraps 120 degrees, or one third.

    I don't have blueprints for the Jerec saber... but I did find these photos here. I hope this is some help...

    Sorry for the delayed reply, I follow so many forums already I always seem to forget TFN. :p

    When I decided to costume Katarn, the only reference pix of the Qu Rahn saber I could find did not have the cover plate around the emitter section. After seeing those blueprints (posted in hi-rez above - thx Lars) I took a closer look at the cut-scenes from the game. Although they are in very poor resolution, you can definitely see the cover plate when Boc is rolling it around in his hands, and when it falls on the ground, just before the Twi-lek smashes it.

    I have a boatload of boring screen-caps in my photobucket.

    Page 2 and 3 are all screen caps. Here's one that shows the cover plate:
