Oh my god! You just got a second UCS R2-R2!
Seriously though, this is really good! Well done!
Good luck to you in the competition!
I'm not after another UCS R2 but I wont say no to one. I just thought it was a cool contest and wanted to enter. I am missing some of those Minifig astromech's though. 5th place would suite me fine.

Sweet entry, the control panel really looks the part, goodluck!
Thanks, I did design it from a scene from Star Wars to use as reference.

Nicely done, very original and it has an astro-droid
I certainly wouldn't have thought about working in a different scale.
I originally wanted to do the astromech docking bay from the Naboo starship which is similar to your last pic you posted for your entry. When looking at the UCS scomplink it need some beefing up and more detail them I had the idea of making a large scale control panel for the UCS r2 to interface.

Great entry! The control panel is really excellent. I've gotta say, I love it when contest entries are pushing the rules or creative, and this is definitely thinking outside the box. Awesome idea!
I hope I bent the rules enough to make my entry original and still be able to enter. I did purposely post this a little late so others would not have so much time to steal my idea. Its always great to do something original and get a better result when there are no other build to compare it to. I'm sure a lot of talented builder in this community would blow my entry out of the water if building the same thing.
I'm sure someone will have a similar idea as me, well we will have to wait and see. Thanks for the comments guys.
