Hi everyone!

My name is Jason and many know me from the 501st mountain garrison. I have been working on a golden bot project for the past year and my fiancee Val decided she wants an R2-D2 to match. So I have started the long road to building him!

Hi Jason,
And welcome! where in Colorado are you? I am in the process as well of building an R2 as well you can check out my build on the build log page for lightsaber-1. I have already built a frankin R2D2 you will have to see to understand why he is called that which I have posted as well on the astromech builders under look what I did. I live up in Evans and there are a few other guys in fort Collins and Loveland that have droids as well I am sure you know cal and devin. if you ever need help working on your R2 or any droid let me know I am retired military and have pretty nice little shop with a lot of tools needed to make these little guys!
Anyway just wanted to say welcome and look forward o seeing your progress and maybe meeting you at a droid build day or something.

nice!
I love going over to Cals and helping him out when I can. He has helped me out a lot with my R2D2 let me take pics of his I wish I could help him more but I have 5yr old son that I take care of and he takes up a good bit of my time. Maybe he has told you I am the guy that also builds custom lightsabers made him one for his display room. it was a more simple one but still cool. I am hoping we will have a droid build day sometime soon. not sure what all you have so far for your R2 but I just saw an aluminum dome for sale on the astromech site. I got my TC frame from the mid west builders group. or are you going the styrene route. I plan on building an R5d4 out of styrene next just as a static display I have all of dave everetts complete styrene build plans.

Welcome, Jason and Val! Glad you found us. We'll have to find someone to host a build day in the Springs. In the meantime feel free to post pics of your builds.
