    Bandai R5 converted to U9-C4 from Clone Wars D'Squad WIP

    I have begun the conversion process of Bandai's R5 kit to U9-C4 from the awesome D'Squad arc from the Clone Wars show.



    I cut out a disc from .06 sheet to fit in the top of the dome. The .06 disc sat high enough to create the first groove. I then cut out another disc and sanded it match the domes angle then glued it in place.

    I then moved on to the top piece.I sanded the red disc to about half a mm then attached the top piece (no glue) then glued this red disc to the dome. I then sanded the top piece sides to match the dome angle. I sanded the pointed peak off the dome to make it flat like C4s. This piece will be removed for painting the triangles underneath.

    Here's an update. C4 is nearly done. I just have to wait for a warm day to be able to prime the few parts left, laser arm and antennae. I also have the paint the caution signs on the inside of his laser arm access panel door. I used parts from a 1/72 tank kit to redo the eyes as they were too small to match his clone wars appearance. I used on of his kit eyes for the eye on the top rear of his head.







    Here some pics with the unpainted laser arm. It is position-able. I had to add extensions on the panel door connection points to make it open a bit more.








    Here is the unpainted antenna. I used the extra antenna from the BB-8 kit as it looks just like his clone wars version.
