Resin detail parts

Here are some of the great resin detail parts that I got from near-by builder Richard Cross. Yes, those are my feet.

More parts ordered... more $$ spent...

I am really hooked now. This is almost like an addiction. And I'm about to break the bank with these parts. Just ordered steel outer feet, aluminum outer legs, aluminum center ankle, aluminum battery boxes, and aluminum utility arms. Almost $1200 just for that batch altogether. But hey, he's gonna look great!

Sold the Tapeease tube.

I sold the plywood body cylinder to fellow Nashville R2 builder Mark Ingram. I'm still without a frame, and I missed the last one on Tom Van Voorhis' auction the other day. And the local waterjet cutter wants almost $700 to cut a frame for me. So I think my first frame will be birch wood like some of the other builders have done. Maybe later I can step up to aluminum.
