Looks good. Does your R2D2 use an aluminum dome? Were did you source the dome from?

@stegall.matthew I made my own frankendrives for the belt and scooter wheels using some scrap from around the garage (aluminum ...ect) its ugly but it works :)
i just cut everything to fit inside the resin foot ... i will try and dig up pics. my dome lights are running solo from everything else and have a switch in the dome to turn them off and on... i did not want to mess with a slip ring and all that jazz ( i am pretty lazy lol )
As far as pointers go..i dont know where to start, but if something roadblocks you ask me and i will let you know if i ran into the same issue.

@windcharger its a Resin dome from the astromech junkyard.

Excellent stuff, are you part of the R2d2 builders club? I have so many questions, is this a styrene build or combination, what plans did you use, which scooter motors, actually a part list list would be cool. Where did you mount the proximity and cameras at? This great, great work really awesome?
May the force be with you,
Ken

@r2d2tech01 Thank you! yea i am part of the astromech club :) this is a combo build of whatever i could get my hands on and i mean whatever! ( example there are parts that i made from old DVD boxes... lol ) some parts ( most ) are from runs on the site and are a mix of everything.... the camera and prox sensors is still a on going issue for me.. currently sensor is under skirt kinda close to leg in front and sweeps back and forth using servo.. camera is in front data port. I used the scooter motors with a belt drive that people reference on the forum.. however i made my own foot drives from scraps around the garage ... they are ugly but work :) i based them off the plans on the astromech site as well. He is still a work in progress as i am never really ever "done " with him and I try to do stuff with as little help from site to see how i can come up with my own way to figure stuff out and make stuff from scrap as a challenge.. I do alot of stuff by "eye" as well so I am the worst person to ask for specs as I would not really be able to tell ya ( bad i know).
I will try to post more on my build however soon
