Been fiddling on a few things
I have been wokring on a few small things...
I touched up the Firefly sign a bit..added stars..painted the edges black..and coated with clear gloss to make it shiny. I also have painted the ship parts a base color..metallic aluminum with a mist of flat black. REALLY seems to match the ONE picture I have of the ship. I cannot believe how hard it is to find screen grabs or reference images of the ship from the show.
My R2 had a problem with the dome rotation motor. The mounting screws loosened causing it to turn and bang when the dome switched directions. I have tightened it for now but I will have to redrill the holes.
I tried out my picoswitch and modified mcdonalds toy sound board with my Vex system. IT WORKED!! Now my R2 has 2 sound options...the interactive R2 inside as before..AND at the press of a button 3 sounds fromt he Mcdonalds toy. Nice to have the option of him playing a sound at the press of a button on my transmitter!!
I have also been gluing together a model (12") of a battle droid. It comes with a STAP (flying bike thing) but I think I just want the Battle Droid.
AGain I need a new airbrush which woudl really help me with these projects. Sigh...funds are too tight.
