Frame glued together and resin parts added for show.
Start of the axles that will be going through the body and connecting the legs together.
Middle metal bar connects the legs together at the right spacing and tilt.
Frame done and dry fitted together. Now to assemble it for real.
I also did a little chiseling on my r2's armpit area.
It is amazing how big these parts look when they are not all put together. Even the Holo eyes dwarf my Star Wars Miniatures Rancor!
January 22nd 2008 was the day I created the original work blog. That was 10 years ago! Here are some R2 leg building pictures from that day long ago and far, far away. The legs are entirely made out of wood with resin details added.
