R2D2 is a monumental icon regardless of its physical size - that has meaning for a large number of people - one of the most popular characters who has no speech.

I have been planning for quite a while to build an R2D2, but every time I took a concrete step towards that goal it seemed to look harder to achieve something reasonable.

This entry is using A Question of Scale as an excuse to move this mini R2D2 project out of the planning stage and into a build phase.

It is great to finally get around to another project from my bucket list. This is definitely a scaled down version of R2D2. I could not find appropriate dimensioned drawings so I tried to take measurements from various images. My painting skills leave a lot to be desired, but that is just another learning curve I need to overcome.

Here is a video of the design, build and demo ....
