For quite a while I’ve had this crazy notion.

I’m going to build a replica of R2-D2. Full scale.

Just think about that for a while, let the gravity sink in.

Fortunately, I am not alone in this, since there are a number of people out there who have actually done this, or are still trying to accomplish what I am setting out to do.

I guess one could say that this is pretty final. I have already managed to find excellent plans from the r2 builders group on yahoo, and have started planning out my frame and how to control the machine.

Today is day 1. I am still insanely busy with work, and got 2 weeks of traveling ahead of me, but in the beginning of the new year, I am planning to actually start physically building this little droid, maybe sooner.

I have already made arrangements for the dome…
