Lots o’ updates

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted anything. I don’t know why. Well, could be just being lazy I guess. But I have been making some excellent progress on R2, as I need to get him up and running before the end of the month, as our church is doing a series called “in the movies”, and they want to have R2 there for some fun stuff.

So I’ve been working on the legs, lighting up the dome, motor mounts for the scooter motors and wheels, detail bits here and there and so on. Following is a bunch of photos of progress over the past 3 or so months…
