R2Dan's golden rod


Hey guys!

After YEARS of working on this on and off, 3PO has finally reached a semi-finished state. It's just a display droid for now, the arms aren't wearable, all the other parts theoretically are, but aren't build to be worn just yet. He's spraypainted with gold chrome paint from a local DIY store, nothing fancy, but it does the job for now... I'll be adding some more pics over the weekend as he'll be displayed at FedCon, here's a first sneak peek for you guys though:

Really beautiful finish that has a very authentic worn look!

Thanks for sharing.

That's all I have for now, I took those while working on the weathering.

There will be pics with his pal R2 very soon emoticon

Here is a pic of 3PO prior to this weekend's (re-)finishing work with R2 though!

As you can see he's changed quite a bit emoticon

Huge difference! This is the best looking ANH 3PO I've seen to date.

What made you change your shoulder rings?

PS, I love how spot on you have made the angle for the neck pistons.

Re: R2Dan's golden rod


Thanks for the praise! He's not entirely ANH yet, although that is my ultimate goal emoticon

The rings that were on there had grooves cut in rather sloppily and got wider in the back for some odd reason (I bought almost the whole droid second hand from a guy in the UK a while back).
As they were too small in diameter to begin with I cut them down and covered them in sheet ABS, looks more accurate to what is seen on screen (albeit not being 100% there yet, but we had to get him "done" quickly - it is all still a WIP emoticon)

What I'm still planning to change over time is:
Back panel
Legs
Shoulers (too big and way too soft for ANH in the details)
Hand detail greeblies (too big right now)
etc...

but overall he's looking pretty good already if I say so myself emoticon

Great looking display.
Curious about the helmet.
Do you know the source?

Re: R2Dan's golden rod


I do know what it is, yeah
Here's a quick parts rundown:

Head: Zorg with MonCal brass eyes
Chest and shoulders: TK 409
Arms and hands: display only by Brian Mix (master by Mic Davis)
Shorts: vacformed MonCal
legs: TK 409
feet: Starbuckcylon I think

Plus a few brass detail parts from fenix props, 3D printed pistons from Gordon's files etc.
