Building a Life-Size R2-D2 – Conclusion

Life-Size R2-D2

After well over 4 years of work, here he is… my lifesize R2-D2. The work-in-progress story started way back with Part One, Life-Size R2-D2, but the full story has a much longer span than that. Indeed, although he is finished to a displayable level now, I will eventually return to retrofit motion sensors, motorised dome rotation, lights and sounds, as well as weathering in the style seen in the ‘A New Hope’ sandcrawler scenes.

In the meantime, click on the thumbnails above and below to view him in his “fresh off the production line” state.
