Droid In Progress

I'm not talking about the iPhone clone (haha)
Here's R0-F6, my love letter to the SW universe. R0 is the dome style, using an R7 body scheme, and custom details designed by me. The "F6" designation, "f" is the sixth letter in the alphabet, so "F6" is short for "order 66" when the emperor ordered all Jedi be exterminated. I support that since I hate Jedi scum.

As you can see, he's a long way from completion, but he's gonna be simple, well in EZ robot standards anyway. 2 motors to drive, 1 motor for the dome, 2 servos to drive the holoprojector eye, and a few blinking lights. All mobile app controlled. He's gonna be mostly black, and I designed all the droid sounds using the BeeBot app.

Paint wise, he's gonna be mostly flat black and silver, plus some metallic anodized red in some details.

Enjoy and hope you like it. :)

Looks sweet! I've always wanted to make my own droid, but don't have the time or resources!

Thanks!
Plans are from the R2 builders club...it's pretty easy to build. Just a lot of sanding and smoothing bondo for me takes a while, because I'm lazy
