Re: Foresttrooper's C3PO build


Cut the backs of the forearms down, when they sit at the 90 angle the ends at the elbow stuck out.

Cutting the resin bracket off revealed a weak resin/car body repair so I had to make new brackets,

Re: Foresttrooper's C3PO build


Yes, it has been a long time in the making, one problem after another.
I lost a bit of interest in this project, doubting myself , doing other costumes, lack of money, time etc etc..but hoping to finally get him done this month.

The best pics are yet to come....
