    and this is what i have after 2 days..(just a few hours in front of the tv)
    i try to do every day 1 panel side..
    the first panels where is there wasn't much on it..
    but from this point it gets harder i think..but i will see.

    So far, it looks like it is coming out real good. This model is going to require a lot of greebles. Waiting and standing by to see more of your project. See you around the forums.

    this is going to take ages :)
    my idea of 1 panel a day is a less time

    but next is the cube where the droid unit is located.

    the droid platform is ready.....except for the droid..
    i have to find one and modify it so that it fits at the right scale..
    all the other greebles on there look nice.
    up to the next panel. :)

    I can send you the R2 head from X-wing in any scale, just let me know if you'd like to have it.
    Good luck with greebling :)

    that would be great :)
    i'm looking for a droid with a dia. of 2.5cm (2euro coin)

    Could you give also the body and legs?...
    I see on the pictures that the r2 sticks out the same as on the x-wing.

    I always print on A4.

    I am loving the greebling. Just be careful not to go insane making all those pieces :)

    Also have not seen your snow speeder in a while. Is it on hold?

    :) i would go insane when i don't succeed with this project..

    The snowspeeder is still running...
    i'm working on the cooling ribs in the back..
    i need the create the ribs on the outside..the smaller ones..
    so there is nothing big to show.

    And my smartphone with the camera is my samsung galaxy pre(history)
    doesn't have any camera...or's just a phone :)
    i hope in a few months the quadcore smartphones are released for under the $200 and then i my time to get a new one.

    Also the gap behind the r2 is filled.
    with 2 tubes

    but i think this is the easy part....
    i have still a long way to go.

    and the most dificult part of it...i have to paint it. :)

    Somehow the parts get more difficult..
    and my speed of building slows down.
    but again...we are a step further :)
