Geez.. just noticed it's been just under a year since I updated this..
Just passed the half way point now and things are starting to speed up a bit.... getting to the slightly better stuff now.
One leg is now complete... a tad weighty too !! Has motor and sensors built in, so can sense if it gets close to a wall, or the edge of a table.

The half scale Luke Jedi Lightsaber.... 95% metal parts with a tiny bit of plastic.. nicely made. This fits in the head and pops up and down.

Now that we have passed the half way point, I got a nice big bit... the full metal dome. Gonna be a long build on this as there are only a few blue panels per month coming up (amongst other bits). Also well on the way with the other leg. The inner frame of the dome is pretty much done, so will house the saber mechanism, and the lights, camera and projector parts. Pretty weighty too.
