I'd love to build one for myself.

Very accurate and well-shaped representation of this R5 unit!
It could also be R5-D4 which was identical with R5-D8. While the latter one exploded together with Jek Porkin's Y-Wing during the Death Star I assault, R5-D4 broke down on Yavin 4 when sold to Owen Lars and Luke Skywalker.

The LDD file, here you go:
Note: I used flex cable to make the left and right ''feet'' of the droid bow a little, but it appears that after loading the file, the cable has been removed.
Note 2: I forgot that those two things, connecting his feet with his legs, weren't actually finished. They should be covered with tiles.

I'd love to have a whole bunch of different droids at this scale; any plans to design a few more....?!
No, I haven't any plans on building more of them, but when I have access to my Lego collection again, I might build this in real. Actually, I wanted to make R2-D2, but his round head was very hard to make on this scale, so I decided to make an R5 unit.

Glad you like it fallenangel309.
I didn't actually know that this droid also contained some blue elements. I thought it was red and white all the way. I'll change that, but I'll probably make a new, and wider body.
The third leg isn't retractable. I might try to create that function at the next version though.
I still want to build an R2-D2 head though, but I don't know how yet. This R5 was a little easier due to the fact that has head is flat on top.
