It's been a successful few weeks! My frame is glued and done. My legs and center ankle are cut out and waiting for me to get more glue for them.

The first thing you might notice is that there are around 6 pieces missing from the frame and no back door and its pretty easy to see inside....well, like I said before this is a modified frame.
The frame is modified for times sake and because I need the project board to have a very clear view of the electronics inside from where they'll be sitting 7-9 ft away.

I also need a visual example of my frame so I had to rip the middle ring out :(. I'll use a random resin part for the resin visual. And maybe a random electronic looking thing for the electronics visual since I don't want to rip R2's guts outs on stage.

Next is the dome, electronics and such.........

I'm a supreme idiot

I was so excited about finishing the frame I forgot to think whilst gluing it up. I ended up having to take the top ring off and after I glued the top ring on before I had all of the ribs glued. The slots didn't line up but luckily the glue was only a day old and my dad helped me pull/rip/chisel the top layer off :). No real damage was done so I guess this time I was lucky.

I'll glue all the ribs and side supports first, then put the top pieces on so it will line up.

I really can't believe how stupid I trying to glue the frame after school and 5 hrs of sleep really was a bad idea.
