    that guy kinda cheated imo. He just stuffed parts into a pre-bought r2d2, would have been better if he made it himself :)

    Yeah I made R2s head for my Rogue 5 Project (see my sig) but not the whole thing. It would be cool.

    There is one being built from scratch over at GruntvillE, he's just starting out with a 45 gallon plastic drum. But no complete ones built from scratch that I know of.

    Ok. I will post some pictures later, but I have started (and nearly finished) an R2d2 PC case for my son (it's 2/3 scale) From scratch meaning, using a round 12inch mixing bowl for the dome and sonotube as the body covered in sheet metal.... using the blueprints from the R2 group on Yahoo groups...

    No pics now, but I will probably start posting it in the Projects section soon.

    If you're gonna make one from scratch I recomend you build the body out of one of those old R2D2 shaped hoovers (vax?) with a metal bowl as the head.
