    Some of you may recall my more recent projects.
    I've drawn digital files and had them 3D printed in the past.
    A few recent pieces.

    I was considering drawing a 1/1 scale pit droid to be built on a SLA machine. A personal project, nothing for sale.
    I have done some looks on the web for reference. Does anyone have any remarkable reference for this guy?

    Just a guess, but the best reference might be in the Prequel Chronicles book (not sure if that's what it's called). I don't really remember. It would be really cool to have it done like that though.

    I am surprised you didn't even get a "Lucas sucks!" response. :lol

    Ha! But then it isn't about the quality of the first film that I am concerned with so much as making something cool at 1/1 scale in the real world.

    That would be swell.

    I have the 18.5cm dolly from Kenner/hasbro.

    Does anyone know the true 1/1 scale height of this guy?

    I'm guessing the pit droid is about 5 feet tall.

    Does that sound right?

    Thank you. Always forget to look there but them I'm a Trek fan first.

    Wonder if that is from tip of the antenna to toe ...or top of the head to toe. Surprised they are so vague.
