Great job! Would you rate it easier/harder or equal in term of printing and finishing R2?

It was easier as the R2 has many hardware components as well. It was a lot more sanding and welding parts compared to R2 as the shapes were harder to do.

Took about 4 months compared to 9 for R2. 

Now working on a stromtrooper which is a big pain in the arse. The prints are easy but they don't fit a mannequin so it will need a lot of cutting and sanding to fit.

If you ever see the original armour it was thin ABS plastic that was vacuumed  formed which is easy to cut and shape. Using PLA which is up to 25 mm thick its much different.

It will look good but its a bitch to work with.

Thanks, I may have to tackle this right after C-3PO.   I have an RT-Mod suit I purchased probably 10 years ago, Its one of my favorite items along with R2 and a studio scale Y-Wing.

Where did you buy the c3po. My patreon guy is suppose to have one nearly done. He has also just release General Greious BUST but it is a part of a full size one he has also "Nearly" done. He is approx. 2 metres high so its big. Too big for my space at home but a C3po I might be able to sneak in behind R2!!!

I plan to use this one, I did a test print of the head last winter and it looks like it should be decent enough.
