Starting R2D2 build planning.

Postby _Lee_ » Sat Sep 19, 2015 8:07 pm

Well the time has come for me to build a full scale R2. It will be stationary and made from anything i get my hands on-probably a mix of wood,plastic,styrene etc.

Reckon i could be at it for a year at least :D

Looking forward to seeing this one come together.

Seen loads of builds over the years, but always full RC setups made from everything bar gold.

Always wanted a static R2 myself with the ROTJ drinks tray on it....saves keep putting my JD in the cupboard..

Be interested to see this. Would like to build one myself, bit daunted by the task. Enjoy the build!

How's your project going? Always dreamed of having something like that myself :) Has anyone here ever built R2 before would love to try it myself.
