    Only an insane person, with too much free time and superhuman patience would take on such a project.

    I think with the availability of styrene plans for your droid that honestly a pepped droid would be a total waste of time and patience. Just build a styrene droid and save yourself the headache!

    Styrene's the way to go for a scratchbuild. With pep, it is too much extra work for an inaccurate representation. The dome, on the other hand is an area where builders are having issues finding sources for. I have a dome pep (with supports) if anyone is looking for one. (no cutouts for greebles etc.) It is much easier than trying to locate a plexiglass/acrylic dome the right size. There are suppliers for metal laser-cut domes, but they are out of my price range.

    If you are interested in extremely accurate plans, go to the links below.
