R2D2 Progress Update - 9/11/2012

Risin' up, back on the street.
Did my time, and took my chances.
Went the distance.
Now i'm back on my feet.
Just a droid, and his will to survive.

So many times it happens too fast (WWSD!).
You trade your passion for glory.
Don't lose your grip on Leia's dreams of the past.
You must battle, to survive!

It's the, eye of the droid.
It's the thrill of the hunt.
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival.
And the last known survivor... Vader.

So yes, I am excited. The dome is "El Fin" as it were, or done. Well, not completely, but it will receive NO work for a long period of time. In fact, I will not even attempt to hinge it until the rest of the droid is complete. For starters, here's a look at my new David Shaw Radar Eye.





The most important steps is making sure you mask the eye properly in the correct places. For me, I also masked the edges of the eye.





Finally, got some paint on there and let it dry.





And now...the big finale. Here is the dome, in all it's glory. I am MORE than happy with how it turned out, however, I do feel like I mounted the eye just a little high! So without further ado, here you go! Enjoy!!





Here is a close up shot of the side details. I am rather happy with how they turned out

IN OTHER NEWS

-For those in the Kansas City Area, there is a big SCI-FI Convention this weekend that my R2 will be making an appearance at with the R2-KC guys. Actually, there will only be one other partial droid there, but it will be a good time for all and there is some decent names there. So if you have no plans this weekend, come on out and see the convention! Details here.....

Holy shit, there's an R2 Builder club?

Excellent craftsmanship btw....though it looks like you colored outside the lines.....

Great work, but if you're looking for perfection, might wanna fix that.

The good news is you seem to have some pretty good fabrication skills. The bad news is you're doing this with it.

It might be cool if it has a built in translator, I'm not sure anyone teaches the R2D2 language.

IIRC, he's going to do something for kids with it. That seems like a pretty good use of fabrication skills to me.
