Darthmiller's C3PO build


Well...I finally decided to post my build

I am actually working on two 3POs

The first is a GA kit....let me tell you that this kit is really rough and has required a ton of work

The second kit is a TK409

Here is a pic of the GA kit and some progress pics from the last 6 months

Re: Darthmiller's C3PO build


I decided to add fiberglass to the pieces to give them some weight and make them stronger

Very nice!!! Beats shelling out a grand to the vac metal shop.

What gold did you decide on? Did you top it off with any clear coat?
