    Hi there,

    I would like to show my building of a R2D2 model which you can find on http://www.paper-replika.com/.

    At the most time I will let the Pictures speak.

    Lets start cutting the parts:

    Here are the next steps....

    ...to get sharp bendings, I use the scalpel and scratch a Little bit along the folding-lines.

    Thank you very much for your comment and the link. The R2 unit looks very nice.
    Currently I am searching for a good and detailed x-wing model or an EVA Pod from Space Odysee 2001 - but I can't find a good one. I guess the space odysee models are very rare in the web.

    Ask and yee shall receive. check out the thread from IMCOLD here: http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=157880&highlight=IMCOLD X-WING
    I has designed an AMAZING X-Wing fighter.

    As for the EVA Pod from 2001, the only one that I know of is the one that UHU02 made.

    Good luck with it.

    Trying to get back on my feet...

    Chakotay

    First of all, well done. A really good build!
    Now, about the x-wing and EVA Pod, have you seen UHU02's work? I know he has a beautifully detailed EVA, and he's finishing his x-wing. There's a thread on it, BTW. Check it out
    http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=173901&highlight=x-wing

    Cheers,

    yeah - the X-Wing looks GREAT :) Thanks alot

    ...and for the EVA Pod - lol - I have to say... I am not good in solving a riddle.
    Sure, I did read alot about it, but all those hints and secrets are too misterious for me.

    You have built a fine R2! As for solving a riddle, UHU02 has decided to make the parts for his EVA pod available for everyone again in memory of the catastrophic events at Fukushima.
    Visit http://uhu02.way-nifty.com/ and take a look at the first paragraph.

    Don't forget them :)

    The Uhu02 is the cut open version..
    the Imcold are the 'ready to fly' version...(that's the one i have build)
