    So, I put in Silent Running the other day and thought that I might take a break from the Thunderfighter. I did a quick buildup of Heuy and Louie the service droids from the movie. I decided to reduce the size to about 1:18 and embellish it a bit. I thought it would take one day, I got a bit more creative, so it took two days.

    I love Huey and Duey, They had the most ingenious way of making these guys work, which was why they felt so organic. They were! Super nice job ASC, one of my favorite characters from one of my favorite movies, Bravo!!

    It would be cool to enlarge these to 1:1 and build them from foam core. sign1

    Built up Deuy, embellished like crazy. The gripper turns, I added the programing chips that Lowell used to update their programing. This one is printed 5% smaller then Huey.

    So very cool! I watched the whole movie with my son on YouTube, he was so pissed off at the end, he really took it to heart. I as too! A great movie. You've done a great job on these guys!

    He posted them here too. Both of you guys really took these over the top. I may have to build one of these. I think after i build my new computer, and get an area set up for modeling again, I am going to bang on of these little fellas out. The movie made quite an impression on me when I was young. Especially the robots. I always thought Star Wars could have learned a lot from these robots. :)

    I have been thinking of making the computer built into the table, but I have a really small house, and everything has to be really thought out. I haven't built anything worthwhile in a long time. I will be doing some designing very soon, well, actually I started but haven't posted anything yet. Nothing out of this world. :)
