Routed Cylinders, Dug Out Armpits

(How's that for a blog title?) With Kelvin's help yet again, we routed the overhang of the MDF on the Tape-Ease cylinder. Some sanding and puttying and more sanding later, and this area will be done(!). Also worked on the area in Artoo's "armpit" where the shoulder stabilizer will go. I needed to make this a bit deeper and more rectangular. I inset some 1/8" MDF for a smoother surface (not glued in yet). I only got about 1 1/4 out of 4 of these dug out. Used a Dremel and a chisel. Very slow and tedious.
