Hi guy's.
Here is my R2-D2 Drinks Trolley Custom.It's been made using Styrene sheet's,with detail added.Then sprayed with gold paint.The R2 you see displaying it is a New POTJ version,but it does thankfully also fit the Vintage R2-D2 to.Hope you all like it.

Thanks. Ricky UK

It's made using Styrene sheet cut to size,and shaped.2 Uprights,and 1 horizontal shelf.After they where cut,I then added the detail.Then sprayed with gold leaf type spray.I had to alter the dome on the R2 to have a small flap that open's,then add an arm to pour the drinks.I will be making a kit of this hopefully as its a fairly easy thing to mold.Glad you liked it.

Thanks Ricky UK

If you decide to make a kit of this, count me in for a set! I'll buy it immediately! This is without doubt one of the most original customs I've seen this year!

D@mn you Ricky!I had that idea for awhile but just couldn't find the time to do it. That looks great and movie accurate. You have got to let me cast that. Ryan

Hey, Ryan: make sure to add some Zutton/Beru glasses to it! images/icons/grin.gif

Hi All.
Thanks for the comments everyone.Glad to see this little Custom proved to be popular.I have cast about half a dozen of them to sell or trade,so just let me know.
I will also send Bantha5 one to mold off his own,so it should be quite well available to anyone thats interested.

Thanks all. Ricky UK

Sorry mate images/icons/smile.gif But I got a bit bored Sunday and wanted somthing quick to make.To be honest it only took me about 3hours to do it.But I will send you one along with Koong when he's done,it shouldnt be long now.I would like to have added more detail,but maybe with you wax pen you could do this if needed.
Speak soon mate.

Hum...I think I remember that cartoon. You're working on a few more of these unproduced guys right?
You're stuff rocks! I collect things like that. Like getting unique things like those.

That is really nice looking. I'm hoping for a Hasbro version of this next year with the new Jedi Luke, but I doubt they will do as well. Thanks for sharing.

That is REALY REALY cool. I think Hasbro should have made this figure a LONG time ago. Would have been perfect with Slave Leia Resculpt.

You should put some making of plans for those who would like to try and make one images/icons/grin.gif

hinthint LOL

GREAT JOB!!!
