Very nice indeed! It just really gives one the look and feel of a robotics workshop.

Then I suggest rereading the rules - I do believe it says "at least one astromech" :tongue:

This is great-looking so far, and I know that you'll pull it off fantastically when it's done! I love seeing how you've done some piece usage - it's great inspiration!

Will probably finish the whole structure this weekend and then all remaining details/posing next week. Sometimes it's the simplest designs that work. :sweet:

How are you doing with your entry?

Will reserve judgement until all entries are in but by far the best entry so far

Awesome idea, beautiful execution, flawless presentation and at a substantial scale, there is really a lot going on here when you look close enough.

As per usual great work AC :thumbup:

It could've easily been bigger but kept it to the large baseplate with a stud or so overhang in a few places. If only I could've lighted up the bottom part, then the details inside would've been shown.

There's a lot of time left but I had to finish this earlier as I have a couple of projects to complete also by August. Good luck on your entry too.
