Styrene Skins



Here is my skins I had the blueprints made up at

Kinko's only $21.74 . We sprayed the back of the sheets with tack spray and temporary bonded them to the styrene. It's very easy to work with just cut with a razor knife and then pop them out. : )

I'm glad you and Calvin got the right blueprints this time. I cant wait to see how your droid turns out!!! This might be an option for me when I get R2 done. I know my son will want another one. HEHEHEHE. He likes the R4's alot, so, who knows!!! Great work so far!!!

I just started and I'm doing my research. People weren't kidding that you really have to do your homework. It's like working on my master's thesis lol. I'm planning on doing a blog as soon as I start building.
