Looking through parts in LDD, the body can be 'sort of done' with part# 3063 spaced with #3005, its not circular but its close enough, the dome is another matter.

If i was you, with the effort and attention to detail, i'd be 3D printing a bespoke R2 for this amazing creation :)

Thanks! I think I'll experiment with different spacing methods for "macaroni" pieces. I want to use only original Lego pieces so printing is not an option :) I think I won't use even custom stickers :D

Just brickbuild one - it doesn’t really matter if it isn’t a perfect dome. All I’d recommend though is perhaps not trying @All in the Reflexes’s version, as nice as it is, because of the ribbed dome appearance you’d be left with.

Might a technique like the one used with the water barrel on the roof of the Detective's Office work?

Any updates on this beast?

Hi!

Yes, some minor updates.

I have moved into a new apartment. This resulted in a 2 months pause in the building.  Anyways, I started again last week by trying to make the opening canopy sleeker. Also you can see that top of the dashboard has been upgraded a bit.
