Nice custom droids Ian. clapping I recognize the bronze 3PO droid as well. Cool

I would love to make one of the Kenny Baker droids, some day.

I've changed resin & mould products recently and have dramatically improved the quality of the pieces that I'm making. rockon

I may have one or two kicking around.

I couldn't reach all the 3PO's & DSD in the cabinet, without knocking everything over.  And falling off the stool that I was standing on to reach into the top shelf of the cabinet. lol!

I made most of them.  The green/yellow one was from James. banana

As you can see, I still have the prototype R5 units with all the air bubbles in the domes. That I was testing paint schemes on.

Thanks Ian.  I really enjoy making figures from the OT, that Kenner never made.

I don't have a steady hand or very good eye sight.  I have to wear my reading glasses and work under a magnifying glass lamp.  My hands shake a little bit.  My grandfather and a couple of his brothers had Parkinsons.  I may be starting to show signs of it.  I usually have a couple of drinks to help steady the hands. lol!

The new resin that I started to use.  Has several nice pigments for tinting the pieces.  I did a small test of the flesh colour a few weeks ago, when I got the products.  This should help with a lot less painting, and improve the quality of the figures.  Hopefully I can get back to making stuff in the fall.

Nice job on the flesh tone there Clint looks good, I've used those colours in silicone before, works a treat
Great customs there James, love the Christmas ones especially, and those university droids are ace! very cool
