Midwest R2 Builders BBQ

So this Saturday was the annual Mid-West R2 Builders BBQ. I had a great time and learned a lot. Everyone there was very nice and was full of helpful hints.

Here are some pictures from the event. (note: Since I don't have a R2 built yet, I brought my tiny Interactive R2-D2 to the event. He can be seen in a few of the pictures.)

First parts arrived!

The first set of resin pieces arrived a few days ago...and I have to say, I am really impressed. The parts are all very well crafted. The next step is to clean, sand, clean again and paint. My dome looks like it might be out to me as soon as two weeks. Don't know when the body kit is due to arrive.

Here are a few pics of the parts.
