Most parts ready…

I have most of the pieces required to complete the droid now, except for the hands. Now I only need to join some bits together and then I will make 2 moulds of the arm and two of the leg (divided in the elbow and in the knee), they both will be divided in 2 for casting , so that later I can glue them in different positions.

Casting some bits for the opposite side in fast cast resin, from silicone moulds. 39DSCF0001_2.jpg

This is the cast when the resin sets, about 10 min later, with the master piece on the right. This is the "hip" joint part... 39DSCF0018_1.jpg

I made the top part of the arm in 3 parts as seen, I used the lathe machine to make the cylinder bit and the rest, I mostly used sanding blocks and the belt sander. 39DSCF0001_3.jpg


The "elbow" joint, was very difficult to see in detail due to the quality of the drawings I have, but here it goes.. I used the lathe and later the milling machine. 39DSCF0002_2.jpg


These are the droid's parts on a wooden board, which I use to transport the parts with me, from machine to machine in the workshop. To keep the correct proportions, and make sure that all parts fit to each other. I used with me at all times, the droid's drawings and the parts already done. So that I could compare everything I had. 39DSCF0012_1.jpg
