Hey everybody,
Just started an r2 (wood frame built, and part of feet).  Hope to meet some of you at the cons in Orlando.  I'm in Tampa (actually just north of Tampa in Lutz).  Anyone know where to get a decent dome? (styrene)

Thanks,
Micah.

Hi Micah, welcome.
I'm not far from you, in Brandon.
I think for a styrene dome you need to contact Cole and Darren on the astromech.net forums.

Wow!!!!!!!! That looks AWESOME!! you are coming along good R2 looks great.
One thing, The inner skin piece in the center where the vents go should not have been cut out. You need to glue that piece back on, That is where your vents will come through and then you glue the outter detail piece on top of that. Again nice progress.

Thanks.  I think I already cut up that piece to make a coin return..

I guess I can remake it out of some other scrap pieces and glue it in.  Good eye though.  Smile

Sarah in her Jawa Costume with R2 for Halloween.

Haven't gotten the motors installed yet, so they'll probably hand out candy on the porch this year.
