Danf's R2D2

Complete...but never finished.
I finally made the last details I for some reason kept putting off, the under shoulder details. I wanted to find a way to make them with all the little lines but never found anything that would work so they are smooth wooden dowels and a McDonald's straw  ( I often use whatever is lying around on the workbench).

How have you been lately?

Doing alright, Thanks Calvin.
Business is pretty slow at the shop which means no money but time to work on R2  
I did some weathering on R2 and am very pleased with the results

I also made a life form scanner using Keith & Carolyn's car lighter adapter Idea (thank you guys!)  and a screen made out of a auto body patch. the whole thing cost about $12

That looks GREAT!
What was the brand or type of auto body screen did you use?
I'd like to build 1 of those.

I think this is it

hard to remember where I got it, that was probably 8-10 years ago to patch a hole in my 1950 Chevy truck that I no longer have.I do know it was one of the local chains. There is 2 in a pack and each is big enough to make 2 screens, so less than a buck a screen. available online here

although like I said, shouldn't be hard to find locally. A good place for car lighter adapters is Good Will. My local one has a bin of them for about 2-3 bucks each. The one I liked the look of had a straight wire so I got another just for the coiled wire. when I cut the straight wire off of the good one I noticed the two inside wires where red and white. so that's what i used for the white wire.
