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.

Hi everybody! I have moved so there will be some delay with any progress! But I will finish this model before I die :)

Good to hear you're alive and kicking, was a bit worried since there's been so sparse with updates.
I miss the progress but life is what happens when you make plans or try to do things. Or was it the other way round?

Looking forward to updates, whenever they might come. I was so inspired by your project and attention to detail that I've actually started one of my own, in the same spirit. But that one is just in the startup phase so there's nothing to show or tell yet, part from where the inspiration came from :)

 

All the best, Jens B
