My first attempt to make a R2 D2 Cake ;o (... Didn't turn out to well, The frosting was melting so I had to make the color and then put in fridge to get cold. And then do more and then back in the fridge. I have a lot of learning to do, but I will get it. It took me 3 1/2 hours to decorate it, but it looks like him, that's a start I will try again in 2 weeks and will post another picture.

Center Foot Progress

Here is the Center Foot, I did some putty work and then primed so I can see where I need to do more work at. Calvin added the bottom piece to it it turned out nice, I still have a little more work to do. We are working on the outter shells for my outter feet, it is very challenging. But I am not giving up yet.

Leg Progress

Finally done with my first leg WHO HOO!!!!!! after about 3 or 4 weeks of glazing putty and sanding I am finally at the end of my first leg. It turned out really nice, but I put my Hub in to see what it looked like and now I can't get it out. So I will have to figure a way to get it out. Also I still have to tape up the white because, I still have to paint the Green on part of my horseshoe and top of the leg.

Center Foot

Here we go again we had to redo my Center Foot, first Calvin calibrated and drawed my Blue Prints. Then we had to cut them on the Table saw, we cut the ends at a 45% angle but that was a little much, so we melted some poly styrene and filled that in. The edges turned out awesome now time to sand and putty.
