“Wolverine’s Claws” – A Katana for Logan

Hello Everybody, today I bring you yet another new saber! Back on the 18th February I showcased a design for Deadpool, well today I have the saber I designed for Wolverine. Long time viewers/friends of this site may recall I have already created a saber for Logan, aka Wolverine (you can view them here:, but he is starring alongside Deadpool in the new movie Deadpool 3 releasing on November 8th 2024. Yes I’m a little early but the inspiration struck me so I had to model my idea while the metal was hot! I decided that Logan/Wolverine needed a Katana to match up with the one I built for Deadpool but one with a difference…and I think this Katana is a bit different. This is “Wolverine’s Claws Katana”…

This saber is modelled and coloured in the classic yellow and blue scheme seen in early comic books, back when Wolfie looked like this…

You will also notice that this is no usual Katana as it has not one, but three blades to mimic his Adanantium claws. This is capable of some serious damage but I know Logan can handle it. OK, enough chatter, I had better post the gallery of pics for you….

This saber is a real match for Deadpool’s and the triple blades also feature the Hamon Line inspired etching light effect on the sides. These secondary blades I imagine being used like the three pronged swords named Sai that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Raphael owns. The smaller blades could be used to trap or “bind” an opponent’s blade to control their sword before snapping it. The wrapping on the handgrip is just a classic Wolfie colour scheme as is the pommel. Now I mentioned that Wolverine is due to appear in Deadpool 3, well I decide to do a group photo of both superheroes’ sabers!

And just as a treat here is a quick picture of Wolverine holding a similar pose…

And that just about wraps up this post once again. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has visited today to check this design out. All of your support is fantastic and has helped me out this past few weeks. Hopefully things at Tyeth Towers will return to normal soon and if you liked what you saw here then please call back for future posts. I have some new “robots in disguise”, more starfighters plus the final Puss in Boots variant . Till next time!…..

“Speedster – Flame” a proper Hot-Rod Speeder!

Hello Everybody and welcome to today’s offering and this time it is scorching hot! Well, it is painted in a hot colour scheme…. You may recall I have designed a new Speeder-bike style vehicle based on the BARC Speeder-Bikes and I have shown you a few variants in different colour schemes and model types (the double sidecar for example). Today I felt that I wanted to show off a true “Hot-Rod” styled Speedster with a flaming paint job. I know that George Lucas (remember him? The guy that created Star Wars…before Disney?) had a love of custom cars and hot-rods and so I decided on this version in tribute. Lucas’ first major film was a movie titled “American Graffiti” and it featured a (very) young Harrison Ford and a certain Ron Howard. It was a “coming of age” comedy-drama centred around the culture of “Cruising” and Rock ‘n’ Roll which were popular within Lucas’ generation. It was also produced whilst Lucas was working on his other sci-fi movie “THX-1138”. Anyhoo, I have babbled on about the background and need to showcase the new Speedster, here is Gallery One…..

This Speedster comes in a classic black, trimmed with red and features a neat flame pattern on the Cameo pendent shaped upper fuselage panel and the two outrigger wing plates. I was able to colour match the flame textures to the material I used in Blender on the model textures so they are almost seamless. Whilst I was rendering the images however I discovered I had made a mistake and had created some pictures of an earlier version which has the flames going vertically up on the panels BUT on one or two images I had made a modification which I forgot and placed the flames horizontal. I didn’t want to have to re-render the images so we will have to pretend and imagine the flames aren’t painted but are really pixelated display panels (like you see in window displays and at sports stadiums, you know Diamond Screens)….and the flames react and move in sync with the Speedster’s moves. For example as the Speedster takes off….

Whilst the Speedster is resting on the ground the flames go vertical but as it lifts up and starts to move forward the flames rotate and display horizontally as if blown by the rush of wind! OK? We don’t make mistakes here…we just have (Bob Ross the artist’s) Happy Accidents! Besides I think the streaking flames look good. I hope you do to as I’m afraid this post has to be a short one again and I will have to end soon. Once more I need to re-assure you that I still have much more to come in future posts including the Puss in Boots darkside inspired version, a repaint of a TIE-Defender, another Marvel movie Katana…and a saber based on a very famous landmark building found somewhere on Earth!

And now I have to say my usual big thanks to everyone for sticking by me and FTSabersite through this unpredictable period I have been going through. I’ve not been 100% certain as to whether I was coming or going as I have been so busy, but I still managed to post. As Yoda said, “Do…or do not, there is no try!” So thank you for the support and whether you are a regular visitor/friend or are new to FTSabersite, you are all appreciated! Till next time…..

“Tobi Saber” – for the cybernetic boy Jedi

Hello Everybody, today we venture back into the Star Wars Visions universe and take a look at the story of a cybernetic boy scientist who dreams of being a Jedi Knight. This droid is named To-Bi and he works with his creator and father figure Mitaka on a project to “terraform” planets. During the pairs’ experimentations To-Bi makes it known he wants to be a Jedi and also asks what is in the basement of their home. Mitaka tells To-Bi that to become a Jedi he needs to find a Kyber Crystal and construct a lightsaber, which To-Bi starts to search for. He wanted to look in the basement but was forbidden to go down there. .. but he decides to disobey and he sneaks downstairs. Upon venturing into the forbidden room To-Bi discovers an inoperative shuttlecraft which he then begins playing in and pretending he is a Jedi on a mission. Unfortunately the radios are functional and he transmits a message which is overheard by dark forces…namely a Sith Inquisitor. Inquisitors were used to hunt down the remaining Jedi after Order 66 wiped most of them out. Even worse though, the Inquisitor traces the transmission and shows up at the scientists’ home world.

Upon learning that an Inquisitor has arrived Mitaka confides to To-Bi that he was once a Jedi but as he was injured so couldn’t continue (Mitaka had lost both his arms). Mitaka hides To-Bi in a secret hideaway along with his broken lightsaber hilt. There is a bit of a commotion and when To-Bi finally emerges from his hiding place a terrible realisation happens….the laboratory has been ransacked and ….Mitaka has been killed. I think I have talked enough about the story so I had best show you the first gallery of “Tobi Saber”….

This is a rebuild of Mitaka’s hilt which To-Bi takes into hiding with. In the cartoon we don’t get to see really clear images of it as the action is frantic so I had to make some decisions and use artist license as to how it looks but I think it worked. This saber has clean lines with a pair of shroud plates on the emitter which kind of follows the aesthetic of Cal Kestis’ lightsaber from the “Jedi Fallen Order” computer game. Back to the story and To-Bi continues his creator’s work and during this endeavour he discovers a truth…To-Bi is himself powered with a Kyber Crystal! To-Bi manages to repair the hilt but all this renewed activity is sensed by the Inquisitor who returns. Now I had best show you Gallery Two with a few close ups…

Yes! To-Bi was a Kyber Crystal powered droid and it turns out the Inquisitor detected that and tracked back to confront the new source of possible Jedi. Then there was….well I don’t want to spoil the ending so I’ll end here. Sorry folks but I was going to have to end soon as my posts have been cut short recently for security reasons surrounding my on Jedi Mission. Hopefully you will have still enjoyed my posts. And as a treat here is a quick image of To-Bi as he prepares to face the Inquisitor…

I think he looks kinda heroic, let’s just hope that he is successful and defeats the Inquisitor. Check out Star Wars Visions to find out if you haven’t seen it already. And just some quick news, it seems that a second series of Visions is coming to screens very soon (or by the time this post publishes it may be out already!). I am all over the place at the minute and things are disorganised but please hang in there and call back next week as I do have another new design to showcase….a flaming hot Speedster!

But for now I will have to bring this post to a close, thanks as ever for checking in today and having a look.

“The Last Wish” Saber Antique edition – Inspired by Puss in Boots

Hello Everybody, a month ago I posted a design inspired by Dreamworks Animations’ Puss in Boots movie “The Last Wish” after I saw the trailer for it online. Having later seen a few more clips of the movie and the Rapier sword in question, I realised my original version was a bit “too clean and new” considering it was meant to belong to a cat that was living his ninth and final(?) life… I had to rectifiy my model and retextured the saber to better fit a “worn and used weapon nearing the end of it’s uesfulness”. This is the retextured “The Last Wish – Antique Edition”….

I feel that this dark brown/bronze colour better suits an antique than the shiny silver I used on my original effort. The new texture also contrasts better with the black leather wrappings and the illuminated blade and “Cat’s Paw” activation switch. Finally, another benefit is that the “Spirograph” style floral etching on the handguard basket looks much more engraved into the model. Ok folks onto Gallery Two and the close ups and details…

Whilst modifying this saber I also had the idea to make a version based on the possibility of “What if Puss in Boots was a Sith Darksider”? So I also made a third variant which I will be posting soon in a future post so please keep your eyes peeled for that one too. Not only do I have the third Puss in Boots version, but next week we will be returning to the Star Wars “Visions” universe with a design built for a cybernetic boy scientist who unfortunately defies his creator, which brings terrible consequences. However the “boy” continues his creator’s work which leads to a second confrontation!. But for now I will have to end as things still haven’t settled for me and I’m still finding life a bit hectic at the moment….but then I am a Jedi Master and should be ready for anything I suppose!

So I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that has checked this post out today and as ever for ALL the fantastic support I have received. All the comments and kind words do inspire me to keep working on this site (especially as I have seen a few stalwarts shut down their blogs sadly). Please call back for further new material and if you like what you see here, maybe spread the word about FTSabersite to your friends…everyone is welcome and I’d be pleased to see some new faces here. Thanks again and…..Till next time…..

TIE Defender Elite “Skerris” – a recreation of the Galactic Empire’s new TIE Fighter

Hello Everybody and welcome to today’s post and before we go any further I need to say fasten your seatbelts! This weeks post we venture back to my “Shipyards” division as I showcase my attempt at building a new TIE Fighter design. The TIE version in question first appeared in the animated Star Wars Rebels show during an episode titled “Flight of the Defender”.

TIE Defender Elite on the left. ©Disney/Lucasfilm

The fighter was a new design developed by Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Chiss military genius (you can read about him in this post: and was far superior to regular TIE-Fighters and Interceptors. The Defender had shields for a start which other TIEs didn’t posses and the new ship was fast because it had a Hyoerdrive unit built in so didn’t need boosters or Star Destroyers to transport them. But while I watched the cartoon I noticed that the Defender was good but to me looked a bit too slender so I decided to redesign and make some tweaks. This is the result of my efforts the TIE Defender Elite “Skerris”..

My redesign is slightly more bulky around the wing supports but I think the ship still has a sleek aggressive look. The distinctive wings each have two laser cannons plus two laser guided missiles between each wing plate. The plates also have carbon fibre-like solar panel texturing giving it the classic TIE Fighter checkerboard pattern to it’s wings. The fuselage is much closer to an original TIE but with an extended larger rear section. The Defender in the cartoon seemed too small at the back to be able to house the shield generator, Hyperdrive AND it didn’t have the Twin Ion Engines that give a TIE fighter it’s name. So my larger fuselage allowed me to add the Twin Engines (so technically this is a Tri Ion Engined ship!) Here is a picture of the Disney version again showing the rear and how small it is…

This rear fuselage seems too small to accommodate it’s tech. ©Disney/Lucasfilm

And now here is Gallery Two showcasing some up close details…

Hopefully these pics will give you a good idea of the shape and build of my version – I think it retains the sleek aggressive shape but looks more solidly built. In the last image you can see the lower two “exhaust ports” for the Twin Ion powerplants but you can clearly see the extra central exhaust and slotted vents arranged around it. These extra ports work like the Vectored Thrust nozzles on modern fighter jets like the American F22, F-35 and Russia’s Sukhoi SU-30 and 35 planes. This starfighter is also very agile as a result.

I named my fighter the “Skerris” variant after the Galactic Empire’s Ace pilot, Vult Skerris. Skerris was an instructor at the Empire’s SkyStrike Academy where the “topguns” of the galaxy trained. After working on developing the Defender Skerris was given the command of Defender Squadron One leading a mission to apprehend Senator Mon Mothma.

These last two images show the Defender out and about both in deep space and in the hangar of the Star Destroyer I designed a year or two back. I’m pleased how my tweaks on this ship turned out and feel the ship would be formidable against the Rebels. Luckily the Empire don’t own any of my variants!

And with that I must end this post, again I can’t divulge too much about my current situation but I hope you will call back next week to see a modification to my Puss in Boots themed saber. Thanks so much for visiting today and supporting myself and my site, all of the interactions motivate me and keeps me designing. Till next time….

“Tyeth’s Original” – Finally I design a saber for my own character!

Hello Everybody, today I have a treat for you all and for myself for a change. I have been designing lightsabers since 2015 and publishing this site since 2016 but in all that time I never got round to designing a saber for myself until now. If I recall I was chatting with Resa of Graffiti Lux Art & More (see her site here: ) and I mentioned I hadn’t built a saber for myself and she suggested I should…so I did, And it turned out quite stylish I have to say – most times when I attempted this project I was never satisfied how “my saber” looked but this one I did like. So now it’s time to reveal “Tyeth’s Original”….

Strangely this saber has (in my mind) an art deco style to it, almost as if I had used an old table lamp and recycled it’s stem to form a hilt. It features a sleek elegant handgrip which is accented with delicate brushed gold effect piping. This piping I imagined was conduit tubing that wiring ran through (to prevent wires being exposed as it ran through the different parts of the hilt body. The hilt emitter has windows to show off the blade as it forms before exiting the mouth of the emitter. This section looks like the socket where a light bulb would screw into a lampstand. Again this post is going to have be shorter than normal so I had best open Gallery Two for you to look at some close up details….

I think you can clearly see why I thought this looked like a candlestick style lamp! I purposely kept the colour scheme simple with a kind of brown with brushed gold making it look antique (despite being new and hi-tech). The colours also make the blade stand out too. The blade is activated by a no-nonsense illuminated on/off switch. The third image shows the mouth of the emitter with it’s “bulb socket” connector where the blade projects from. Finally, the pommel is a simple vented design consisting of twin concentric rings edged in gold.

Now I apologise once more but this post will have to be cut shorter than usual as I am here, there and everywhere trying to avoid the Dark forces out to hinder my mission (or am I sat at Tyeth Towers relaxing? Who knows? I’m afraid I have to keep you all guessing for security reasons).. But I can reveal that next week we will be revisiting my Shipyards division with a design for a new starfighter that is armed to the teeth and has it’s own Hyperdrive unit (which for a Snub Fighter is rare!).

I’d like to finish by saying thanks to Resa for cajoling me into designing “Tyeth’s Original” – maybe one day I could have it manufactured for real. And I need to say thanks to all of you, my readers and friends for checking this post out. Your continued viewing and support of me and my site is phenomenal – every little like, comment and subscription helps. Till next time….

Deadpool Katana saber – Inspired by the wise-cracking crusader

Hello Everybody, things are extremely hectic and stressful for me at the moment – the weather is terrible and I’m awaiting a vital parcel to be delivered to me. But in amongst al the upheaval and disruption to my normal routine I realised that I have met a famous mutant Anti-hero in the shape of Deadpool, at the comic con I attended last year but not done a Blender3D design for him . And Inow have a katana…but not a Deadpool themed katana….until now…

Lightsaber vs Katana? Not a fair fight really!

I discovered from my quick sparring session with Deadpool that a regular katana (or two as he uses a pair of blades) isn’t a match for my lightsaber so I felt bad and designed a set of hilts for him. These are Deadpool’s custom katana lightsabers…

I think the red, white and black colour scheme is very striking and I decided to include the Hamon inspired blade for this design. You will also see if you look closely that the pommel resembles the Deadpool logo complete with glowing white eyelets! And of course I had make a pair of sabers because DP uses two blades in a style similar to that of Ahsoka Tano (her Lightsaber Form or style is known as Jar Kai and uses a saber in each hand). It takes a lot of co-ordination to wield two sabers but after meeting DP I know he can cope!

So now I have rectified my oversight and bestowed my new friend with his sabers I’m afraid I will have to end this post early as I’m still waiting for the delivery I mentioned earlier and it is vital I get it. I will before I go say a big thank you to all of you who checked this saber out and for all the fantastic support, be it in the form of likes, comments or maybe even folks subscribing, it all means a lot and keeps me working. So whether you are new to FTSabersite or a regular….thank you! And next week I will be unveiling a completely original lightsaber for a special Jedi character….ME! I’ve finally designed one for myself, so I hope you’ll return to check it out! Till next time….

“Dangercar Saber” – A Secret Agent Mouse saber

GOOD GRIEF! I s it time for another post already? Er hello everybody I guess it is time for today’s post. And today instead of a saber for a cartoon cat I have a design inspired by a cartoon mouse! Probably the most famous mouse to eve be a Secret Agent….Danger Mouse. Danger Mouse is a 1980’s UK cartoon created by Cosgrove Hall Productions that centres around a mouse who is the world’s first and only Secret Agent Mouse that battles crime and works to thwart the evil plans of a “Terrible Toad” named Baron Silas Greenback. Danger Mouse (or DM) was loosely based on the TV character “Danger Man” and of course James Bond but DM was a hero and a bit of a coward at the same time. Lucky for DM he had a hapless sidekick in the shape of a Hamster assistant named Penfold – though Penfold got into more predicaments than he helped the pair get out of. If you haven’t seen Danger Mouse then here is a quick look at him…

DM was a suave secret agent and in real life was voiced by the legendary actor David Jason, who most readers may associate as playing the part of trader Delboy Trotter in the UK sitcom “Only Fools and Horses”. His sidekick Penfold was voiced by comic actor Terry Scott who appeared in the “Carry-on” series of movies (in the 70’s and 80’s) and a TV sitcom named “Terry and June”. The show was a big hit in the UK and was as a result the first animated show to appear on Nickelodeon (along with Belle and Sebastian) . DM became popular in the US too being likened to Rocky and Bullwinkle. But back in the UK….DM battled Baron Greenback for TEN series/seasons and during which time he called upon the use of a special car the Mark III Danger Car. Well my friend TheVintageToyAdvertiser (find his site here> and I were chatting a while ago and the idea of a DM saber cropped up and I thought “I just made a Ferrari themed saber for Magnum PI…why not make a DM Dangercar Saber?” So I did and here is Gallery One….Tally HO!!!!

This saber is based on the Mark III Dangercar which was a yellow sports car (similar to a Lotus Esprit like James Bond famously drove) and also had numerous gadgets and gizmos. But the most famous trick this car could perform was it’s ability to fly! It could extend wings out just like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and take to the skies and it is this flying mode I have recreated here (hence no wheels!). The car saber also has a proper transparent and reflective windshield part near the “cockpit” and seats which act as the saber activation controls. The saber also has the folding red winglets and on the bonnet/hood of the car you can see the famous DM logo badge. The main handgrip is sleek leading to a rear end that has a few more details. But first here is Gallery Two showing a few close ups..

These pics clearly show the sportscar influences and the windshield/cockpit/winglets. I’m also pretty happy how the logo turned out as it follows the contours of the bodywork nicely. The rear of the saber has a red vertical tail fin, along with the rear quarter “engine cover” bulges. Then to finish this saber off I included a pommel part that has tail-lights, a license plate, rear bumper/fender and a radiator grille that acts as a cooling vent and sound grille for the lightsaber. Once again I think I did pretty well converting a car into a saber but so you can judge for yourself here are two images, one of the cartoon car itself and the second, an actual real life replica built by a fan to drive on the road!

And that my friends just about wraps this secret agent mission up. DM and Penfold are about to return to their base (which is a secret lair built under a red London postal box!) and I must return to the shadowsof wherever I am at the moment (can’t say much about my whereabouts…but it’s awfully moist here!)

Before I go however I must as always give out my thanks to TheVintageToyAdvertiser for another of his challenges, they do put me to the test! And I need to say thanks to all of you, my friends and readers. Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular caller to FTSabersite thank you for the support and I hope you will call back for more lightsaber and 3D model making inspired by Star Wars and pop culture. There is so much more to come including Star Wars Visions inspired hilts, FOUR new starfighters I have designed and a few sabers for a Marvel film due out in November of 2024! Till next time….

“The Last Wish Saber” inspired by Puss in Boots – The Last Wish

Helloo Evarebohdee!….Iya ahm Pouse in Boo…..WHOA! Wait a minute! Er hello everybody, sorry for the slight interruption – a famous feline seems to have come to visit today! Yes as you may realise from the title image above I have been joined by the fearless feline (his words) Puss in Boots! It turns out that he is starring in possibly his final film titled “The Last Wish” which opened in cinemas last night (Friday 3rd in the UK) and he’s come to ask me a favour. In the movie Puss is about to embark on a big mission of his own and feels he needs something special to help him succeed…he’d like me to…..

Pleeze Meester Tyeth make mee a Lazur Sword…pretty pleeze?

He’d like me to make him a lightsaber! He had seen the Rapier styled sabers I had 3D modelled a while ago and thought they were nice and would like one for himself for his mission. He already owns a normal rapier but wants a blade that has let’s say, a sharper claw! A lightsaber Rapier would be just right. I asked him a few questions about what he wanted it to look and feel like and he said, “Elegahnt, mysterioose….and dangeroose….joost like mee! It has tooh be guud in a duel and the bestest whepon in the Far, Faraway Kingdom!” So I set to work designing a new hilt….this is “The Last Wish”….

I attempted to build a saber much like the one he owned already (seen in the third picture) but our furry little friend was a little disappointed with it asking, “I thawt yoo wer going too build a Lazur Sword? Vis eez just a normal blayde!”. I told him to calm down because just like all cats this saber doesn’t reveal it’s claw(s) till needed! I told him press the “Cat’s Claw” activation switch and get ready…..he did and Hey Presto!….

His intant response was….”MEEEOW!!!!…..Eetsa LAZUR SWORD! Peeety!” and began swinging it around. Fortunately Puss is a skilled swordscat and managed to avoid slicing up my workshop. I told him he needed to be calm using this saber as it is very powerful. Once he calmed I was able to point out the finer details of the hilt. First and most obvious this saber has a scabbard that retracts to reveal the plasma blade inside. The hilt is also in a classic silver and black colour scheme (though as always there are variants I have lined up for future posts). The handgrip has a luxurious leather wrapping behind the siver basket guard dome. And the basket dome features a similar floral Spiro-graph loop decoration etched into it. As the saber is very similar to Puss’ regular rapier sword he felt very comfortable with this saber and was drawn to the distinct pommel. It is in the shape of a cat’s head!..Here are a few more pictures in Gallery Three…

The first image is the picture I used as reference to create the floral loop decoration on the basket dome. You can also see the ornate cossguard bar which helps to balance a rapier blade – very important with a blade made of super powerful plasma! The pommel you will see sorta resembles a cat’s head and face. When the saber is idle the “cat’s eyes” are closed as if having a “cat-nap” sleep but when the blade is activated they open and shine in a matching colour to the blade itself! I truly think this saber is fit for a feline fighter such as Puss in Boots! I hope he thinks so too….

Oh I approoove Meester Tyeth! Tank yoo so much!

Hooray another happy customer! I also hope you are all happy too and enjoyed this design, it was a bit different than normal and so much fun to model – unusually everything I tried to incorporate worked out including the etching which fitted purr-fectly! Heck, did I just say “purr-fectly”? I need a rest, I’m not feline too well. Good Grief! I will end this post in a moment but first I want to thank you all as usual for all your support…

Whether this is your first visit or you are a regular caller to FTSabersite, thanks for all the fantastic comments and the likes you leave, they mean a lot. Hopefully you will return next week when I’ll be showing off a saber inspired by Marvels’ super Anti-hero with the initials WWW….who will be appearing in his THIRD movie in 2024 (I’m a bit early with this one!). Till next time….

“Data Viewpad” with some secret plans!

Hello Everybody and welcome to this week’s post. Can you believe we are already at the end of January? Well after the excitement of seeing Shredder from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last week we return to the Star Wars universe for a new non saber prop build. As you know I might be carrying out a “Jedi Mission” as we speak (or am I?…Hm?) and I realised I needed a device of some sort to store my travel documents and mission briefing files on. I wanted something portable and secure and it was whilst watching an episode of The Clone Wars cartoon that I saw what I needed….a Data Viewpad!

Detective Tan Divo with a police issue Data Viewpad

The Data Viewpad was in an episode telling the story of a murder in the Senate which was investigated by Coruscant Detective Tan Divo. He was a sort of cross between Peter Lorrrreee and  Lieutenant Columbo. Now these devices are much like tablet computers found on Earth but these compact computers have many more uses and larger data storage capacity. But where to get one from? I had to look online for an Intergalactic Refurbishment Store. I checked what stock they had and found a reasonably priced Viewpad with one previous owner, so I bought it! This is what it looked like….

Unfortunately as you can see this Viewpad didn’t seem to have been wiped before I purchased it! What’s that on the display? Is it the plans for the….No it can’t be, can it? Only kidding this is actually the 3D model I made of a Viewpad, complete with screen and multiple control knobs plus a Trackball mouse controller. The device has two cylindrical handgrips, one either side that also incorporates the memory modules and can be removed and fitted with larger data storage capacity drives. The viewer also has a Data-Term connector on the top edge, similar to a Ribbon cable to connect this to any computer terminal to access it. This is a seriously powerful piece of equipment! Ok, I just have time to show you a few more pictures, so onto Gallery Two….

As I mentioned before this Viewpad has many functions apart from just storing and viewing data files. You can use it as a Comms device that sends/receives voice and data such as the Death Star plans… or it can be an entertainment media player so you can travel and watch your favourite Star Wars content over the Galactic Communication Grid (bit like the internet). The last picture shows a scene from last week’s episode of “The Bad Batch” and shows Tech using a similar Viewpad to analyse data from a Podrace to help him try and win a race.

So, as you can see this is a very trick piece of kit! I might even see if I can use Blender 3D on it….you never know it might work! Unfortunately what I can’t get this device to do is give me more time to type up longer posts! Yes as you might guess I am running short of time but before I go I’d like to give you an update on what I have in store for future posts. I have more Star Wars inspired builds including FOUR new starships, …there are new sabers too (one of which I designed for myself and a second that will pay tribute to the secret location of my mission). There are even some cartoon and animated movie tie-ins all coming very soon.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and my Data Viewpad , it was a fun build. I also want to say thank you for visiting today and giving me your support. Whether a first time viewer or regular visitor to FTSabersite you all motivate me to keep creating and it means a lot. Now I have to say bye and disappear so I can continue my Jedi duties…..Till next time…….
