Some news from Media Conversions!
To make it more widely available, I'm posting a web page that provides information on the Health Hazards of the various solvent glues typically used in building R2.
Current Status: I'm getting parts from the CNC shop on a regular basis. I've started a 2016 Orders List, carrying over open orders from 2015.
a Dome Motivator for CS:L droids, based on the one in my CS:R NextGen
frame bundle, is now available. CS:R Engraved Skin sets, based on the
ones Paul Murphy (joymonkey) offered, and door backs, frames &
hinges, to go with the Engraved Skins are now in first prototype. Also
in development, to spruce up your unfinished droid, are Pasties!
Pasties are 1.6mm thick versions of body parts, like power couplings,
etc., that substitute for the real parts. Follow the link for more details.
A redesign of my legs so that they are CS:R compatible, and include the
booster covers. It's time for me to start working on the styrene Dome I
bought back in 2009 for motivation! First up will be a Dome ring. Follow the link for more details.

part of the design process I create 3D models of
the R2 parts that I'm building.
I'm using Alibre
Designs 3D design package and I'm publishing the models in STEP AP203

The Models have been given a separate set of web pages. The 3D
