Progress continues! Droid assembled

With the skins largely done, it was time to re-attach them to the body, then attach the legs and see how everything is lining up.

I'm very surprised how clean it looks, the beauty for a camera flash....up close, its covered in smudges (honest!)

The other half of the dome panels were painted today. They would have been done yesterday but a Duplicolor Blue rattlecan had a nozzles misfire, splattering paint on half the parts. After another sanding, filing, priming and paint....they are drying.

While eyeing everything over, there are a few zillions things I need to tweak. The obvious things that remain to be done are the dome, the shoulder hubs, the battery boxes, yada yada...but...we're getting there!
