It's a bird? It's a plane? It's a......

So I have been collaborating on a side project for awhile now. I have been keeping the details very quiet and outside of those directly involved, very few people know whats going on. So, at this point, I can now show you this side project, or at least a 'very' small portion of it. I will give no details, but here is a few photos of the progress. Don't expect to see many updates on this until it gets closer to completion.

Great Day for Parts!

Happy Valentine's Day to all, especially to Kristen who puts up with my bullshit through this build. Because I know she reads this, hi! Today was a great day for parts as I received my JAG ankles! Here's another view! Finally, I have been getting the detail pieces painted and installed.

Today was a good day! I received new parts for R2's body! I received some aluminum power couplers and some aluminum coin returns! These parts have been extremely difficult to obtain, so I am glad they found a new home! (Thanks Guy!). Also, I have pictured my aluminum side vents that I got from LePaul (Thanks Paul!). I have a very innovative way to mount them, so hopefully once it gets warm enough, I will have them painted and mounted! Here are some photos!! In other news, today was a day of infamy.......the JAG aluminum ankle run started, and I was very quick to snatch up a pair, and they're pretty much sold out in 12 hours. Thank goodness I checked Astromech today! Here's some photos!!
