I am building a R3-T7

I am building a budget R3-T7 .
Most of my parts will be plastic or resin, it will be completly remote control.
My husband is building a R2-D2 mostly all his parts are aluminum.
I bought my skins on line with shipping was only $27.00 big difference from his.
Our family is a member of the R2 Builders Club.
Started cutting my skins yesterday and now my finger is numb : (
More to come soon.

Brenda,
Cant wait to see how it turns out!!! Cutting styrene sounds much easier than the aluminum. I will be adding your page to my links list if thats O.K.? At least you have a good helper at your side!!! HAHAHA

Very much so thanks and yeah he helps a little but is making me do most. The only think I can't do is dremmel. HE HE HE.I appreciate any help. THANKS BRENDA

Oh dont worry!!! Dremeling can be a little hard. You have to have good control, otherwise you can screw something up. I've had some close calls myself, but I've used them alot in the past with things in the house. But I never owned one until now. Keep up the great work!!!!!

Looks good so far, I hope a lot of the new builders log on to see what all is involved, even for a budget kit. I know I will log in to keep myself motivated.
