R2's First Birthday

Happy Birthday R2!

It was one year ago today that I finished R2 and unveiled him to my friends and family.

For his birthday R2 is getting some new batteries, and maybe some other goodies. He may also get weathered sometime during the summer.

Hard to believe it's been a year already!

To be honest Victor....I thought he was done way before that!!! But another Congrats on one fine looking droid!!!!!!!!! This is one R2 that I have admired since my time as a builder!! Many more years of Great times I hope you have with him!!!

By the way....which paint are you using for your white? That is pur white, right? Some builders say they have a tannish tint on their droids. But yours looks like the white that I would prefer!!!

Well he looks like one happy droid!
Congradulations on the 1 year mark!
When the other droid is finished are you going to have sibling rivalry? LOL

Thanks! I'm using Rustoleum Satin White for my white. It is pure, no tan tint.


Thanks to you too. #2 is already jealous that I'm not putting in the effort I did on #1.

I'm still working on mine and it's been over 2 years.

Thanks Calvin! I promise I'll do my best not to make R2 ugly with the weathering when the time comes. Don't worry, I'm nervous too!
