Bill's C3PO Build Diary


I thought just for the heck of it I would do a build diary for my new droid, to chronicle the power of trial and error. Mostly error.

Starting off with the head, from Starbuckcylon. It's not bad, and the price is right, so why not?

Right off the bat I cheesed up the face while Dremel-ing out the eye holes, for some reason my bit insisted on skating off over the face 4 or 5 times. Nothing I can't fix, and hey, what would I do if this stuff was ever easy???

Nice work there klutz!

Here is a pic with the eyes just set in, not a bad fit, which is nice.

I painted the eyes with Krylon rattle can Metallic Brilliant Gold paint, which to my eye looks more like copper than gold. The jury is still out on that one, not sure if that will work for the larger body sections...

More to come as I limp ever forward!
Bill

Re: Bill's C3PO Build Diary


Great work Bill!! The eyes look great, I would leave them that color, even if you don't spray the suit to match. I think they look better that way emoticon

The scratches should be easy to fill. Can't wait to see your progress, thanks for sharing it with us, it's a valuable resource for future builders!
