R2LA IV.5 - Leg Finishing

Today was Mike Senna's leg-finishing session for the local R2 builders that purchased Matthew Henricks' wooden legs. It was also an excuse for others of us to just get together and have a good time.



Mike went over how to apply Bondo and/or Evercoat to even out the legs.



After applying the putty, Mike sanded the surface smooth.



Other details were covered, such as filling in the pockets for the under shoulder details.

But best of all, it gave me an opportunity to put on a Stormtrooper helmet. The benefits of this club never end.



Everyone went home happy, and a good time was had by all.
