Nice! Is that a sculpt in clay or a hard sculpt that is just painted with dark primer? Are you planning to cast it in fibreglass (or CF or other fibre)?

This is looking very nice! I was thinking about making this guy too. What were you thinking about charging for a dome? I can't wait to see how you do the body. How are you planning to do that?

I know its early stages but did you give any thought of making it kit and doing a run? You'd be swarmed with buyers I'm sure

Thanks, i used a lot references photos i believe that is the closest size, if i use a 12inch dome the sphere have to be bigger like 22inch if you add the sizes the droid would be around 28 inches height and that size it is too high comparing side to side to r2d2
