ONCE UPON A TIME IN A GALAXY …AN EGG - UNIT IN SEARCH FOR A FRIEND
Maybe You Will Build One For Him?
Welcome to my instructables.
This time I want to share with you how to build R2D2 based on an egg-shell.
I call him the REGG2-DE2! It has got a turnable head, a blue diode to transmit the hologram of Princess Leia, and fully adjustable legs.
If you are one of the older folks, be patient! I really appreciated having small fingers for that job. I hope you‘ll have some fun building and playing. :-)
