Re-crafting a lightsaber to a Revan's

So I have the lovely idea of making myself a set of lightsabers because I want to have two of them for my Raven costume (the Red/Purple Combination as per approved). I've got my hands on two Darth Vader Ultimate FX Lightsaber (long name...) that are currently Darth Vader I know I can completely dismantle them and recast new hilts but I have a few questions firstly being does anyone know a site that list some of the conversations of internal parts and what the scale of the saber is I haven't been able to get an accurate measurement of them and I'd like to draw it up in 3Ds first to get it printed out maybe even do a 3d printing of it if I find someone local. I'm mainly interested in just pulling the board over turning the light colors and wondering if there are any kits around that aren't say $300 dollars. Any help please would be lovely.

The Custom Saber Shop is a decent place to find interchangeable parts, but depending on what you want, 300 sounds about right for a kit from top to bottom. Any more from someone is probably parts and labor for the electronics work.

I can do the wiring myself my father was a communications engineer worked on electronics for decades so I just want the LED strip I guess if it comes down to it I'll just buy a chain of LED and swap out the existing ones on the board. Probably a lot easier to buy LEDs in purple but I was hoping for maybe a premade string that I could just swap myself. I'll make the saber on my own. I just need a scale reference. I haven't been able to find something that says "sabers are these average measurements" in general.

I'd recommend the Luxeon conversion rather than doing another strip of LEDs. The look is brighter and more uniform. I'm planning on doing that to my Vader saber.

Interesting I'll check more into that, seeing as I already bought LED's I'm a bit SOL but that would be a neat way to go.
