Question of the day.

What will be the Jawa repairing? I am thinking of something from The Force Awakens teasers.
Or something else?

Suggestions and comments are more than welcome!
Yeah, I would have felt uncomfortable with it watching me work before wrapping the head up lol.
I'm not really too aware of any objects from TFA yet that he could be repairing... Maybe you could have him fixing his restraining bolt controller?

coming together great! any pics of your droid?
The droid is still one big piece of polysytrene. I'm going to start on him now.

Maybe, or I was thinking about a droid hand.

After a long time here!
I've decided to throw the polystyrene dome away and build a new one from wood and styrene. It'll be much better.

Does anybody know, how can I make, or where can I get the radar eye and the holoprojector?
Thanks!

Finally I started on the droid dome. No more procrastination! :)

First, I am making the wood construction.
I have the upper part so far:

There are the PSH plates (or the droid's casing), beside Jawa:

Today, I made the camber to the lower triangles for R4.
Here they are aligned on the construction even with the upper triangles:

The hardest part was to cut the eye hole. Ugh. :)
And all the sticking, bonding and rubbing tomorrow.

I can't wait for the final result. What do you guys think?

The droid dome is glued together:

Say hello to the inside of R4's radar eye:

Do you ask, where is the radar eye seen in the films? Here is the answer: I decided, that Jawa will be repairing it. So it will be attached to this long bundle of cables:

Just cement and hone it and I can spray it with colours! Yeah!
Reactions?

Last post before the holidays.

I glued the styrene hexagon on the droid:

Here are cutted styrene parts for opencast details:

In the final, I will try to do something like this (but the red will be much darker):

The radar eye. Well, not 100% accurate, but I'm happy with it:

How R4 looked before he was scavenged by Jawas:
