So I've had this crappy C3PO head for a while and wasn't sure what to do with it...

It's never going to be a perfect, screen accurate head. So it occurred to me that it would made a great ESB decapitated head display. Should be a fun, cheap build...

So we'll cut off the access neck and use the rest as a collar

Bit of tidy up with the dremel

First primer coat down

Lots of room in here

It's missing some details so we'll make those out of spare bits

We'll use this plastic for the neck plate

The display base is just a paper towel rack

And that's where we are up to. Head needs a wet-sand and paint. But first I need to make the eyes...

Great idea...

I have a crappy ga 3PO head - may try this...
Yeah, there's a lot more that could be done with electronics - lights and sounds. Even have the boot-up sequence when Chewy gets his head going. I bet @x197 could help with that. (y)

Going to plate or paint?
Paint. This is a low-budget build. I am very limited to what gold paint I have available with only 3 or so viable options. But I did find a can of VHT high-temp gold that I really like. It's that deep, almost vintage looking gold that should work well for this project.

Presumed so... I would too.

One advantage is there is more weathering on his head at this stage - the burnt look, etcetera...

Sorry team, was a week in bed rather unwell. All good now though so back at it!

For the eyes I wanted that cool textured glass look, so found this for $2...

The eye grills were a mission coz I was making them from scratch. Used cardboard as the template...

Then replaced it with styrene...

I went on and made the grills but forgot to take a pic.

On to painting the head. Quite like this dark gold...
