Cutting Outer Feet


I'm cutting my outer Feet boy the curves are a challenge, can't wait to see the finished product since I am cutting them and putting them together not Calvin. Hopefully I won't make too many BOO BOO'S.
Also Calvin made my half Moon for my center Foot, looks pretty good just some finish up work on it. :o )

Coming along nicely!!! This inspires me to build a budget droid when I'm finished R2. I'm sure if you take your time, there wont be any boo-boo's, unless youre using JBWeld and sit in a plate of it!!! HAHAHA. What ever you do, WATCH WHERE YOU SIT!!!!!!
By the way, do those foot shells have to be reinforced with wood or something behind them?

HAHAHAHA, I heard about that now I WISH I had seen that lol.Yes mine needs to reinforced, but only in the Ankle area. Calvin said his next one will be styrene, a lot quicker and cheaper and looks just as good. Hey!!!! LOOK BEHIND YOU THERE IS A PLATE OF JB WELD!!! HAHAHA HEHEHE :O )

Yeah I still laugh my butt off everytime I think of it!!! I really didnt like working with it either. Too stiff...I couldnt spread it around quick enough. I'm definitely using silicone next time I have to bond anything. Removing the excess looks like it will be a hassle too.

Hey John get you a dental pick from the Hobby Shop that helps a lot with geting the JB Weld out of the cracks. And you won't live down the sitting in the JB Weld LOL LOL. :- )
