Tonight Matthew Henricks and I got together again, to finish cutting parts for the skirts we're working on.
I was bit more useful, as I brought the chop saw and did some chopping on the side pieces.
We also cut the ribs, as much as we could given that the styrene is not glued on yet, and we couldn't match the angle perfectly. That's for another day.
Here's all 41 pieces for the skirt, awaiting assembly. I have leg and horseshoes to finish too, the piles of wood are stacking up!
Remember, there's a video tutorial on the R2LA IV DVD, with lots more details (like measurements) available from Michael McMaster.
Tomorrow night/Saturday morning, R2 is scheduled to appear at a local Toys-R-Us Midnight Event for the release of the Clone Wars toys and merchandise. It'll be interesting to see how well I operate R2 at 1:00am.
