1st January 2009...... R2 is complete!..... OK, admittedly he's never 'complete' as there are always gadgets to add, electrics to improve and mechanics to check. But he now looks like R2, has lights, sound and fully remote control.
Back in December 2006, twiddling my thumbs looking for a project I decided the time had come to build something I'd considered for years. From watching the original Star Wars back in 1977 when I was 7 years old!
I joined the Yahoo R2 Builders Group and was amazed at the amount of members a lot of which have built or are building there own R2-D2!
It's Wednesday 9th May 2007, please be sure to come back and have a look from time to time. I've only started this site today (I wish Artoo was as easy as this!). Hopefully you'll find something of interest here.
Since writing the above, this 'hobby' has got a little out of hand! I have since made my Sons a Jawa & Rebel Fleet Trooper outfit along with customising a couple of Blasters to compliment their costumes. I have also picked up a couple of original flashguns and converted them to lightsabers for display purposes. I have also started on building a full scale K9 thanks to the kit that A&A have recently produced and a MSE Mouse Droid!
Please click on the additional links above to find out more information which I will update as often as possible.
