a few updates since last time

Well, haven't been updating in awhile.
Mostly because i was sanding parts. Talk about tedium and boring.
Anyway, I found these little things to be quite helpful. Found them at Lowe's in the hardware section. They are usually in the drawers where the screws and bolts and nuts are found.

I've used them for the inside of the knee area, and also for the pivot joints on the arms at the elbows. They work great.

Here i have drilled out a hole in the knee piston for the screw head, then applied an apoxy glue to hold it in place.


  1. This is an astounding work!

    I'm planning on wearing a costume for Celebration 6 myself ..
    My first inclination was towards (yet another) Stormtrooper, but my height (1.65m, 5'5") might be a problem.

    I then thought "what about a protocol-type droid?" After finding your site, I think my average building skills would never be enough to come up with something in time for C6

    Maybe a (tall) Jawa then ...

    Anyway, and again, you are doing a terrific job here :D

  2. Thank you for your kind words. I apologize for not seeing your comment sooner.
