Droids, part 1

by brae  

And now for something different.... A few years back, mom bought me a BB-8 and R2-D2 kit by Bandai. I've heard great things about these kits. They don't require painting or glue and they have a precision fit with great detailing. I've been hankering to do something a little different, so I dragged this kit out and added a BB-8 and D-0 kit to the mix.

At first glance, it looks like the instructions seem easy to follow.

And, since the pieces are molded to color, that should help sort things. I do plan to paint, though, since I prefer a painted finish to the plain plastic no matter how good the quality.

The BB-8 and R2-D2 models are headed to a friend upon completion.

The BB-8 and D-0 models will stay with me. This one comes with the diorama surround, which is a great feature.

I'm planning to make these battle worn and update a few of the features. Stay tuned....

That's the sort of kit I would need to creep up on in hopes it is simpler than it looks. Lots of luck, keep us posted.

The way that you instantly move between the historic and the futuristic, you are the "Dr. Who of miniatures"! Of course you are going to "update a few of the features"... this just wouldn't be an Otterine project if it wasn't far better than the kit. Everything that you do is amazing and delightful.
