Hi folks! In case it's of interest, I've written up a page documenting the arms and interior compartments seen in Original Trilogy R2s. I did so mainly for my own work building a De Agostini 1:2.3 R2, but since it's pretty general, it may be of interest to people building fullsize R2s, or 1/12 Bandai models or whatever, as well.

Comments and corrections welcomed!

I remember tackling this a couple years ago... and getting irate over the inconsistencies with the dome. ;) Ended up plotting out an idealized approach to my build in that respect. So i can appreciate the research and frustration that went into this. :)

Yeah, it's all about picking and choosing the elements you want. Can't get total consistency, that's for sure!
