Revvek’s FOTK build [KB 2020]

Recommended Posts

Ok I have been collecting bits for several years, this part from here, that part from there. (Details later) and yesterday, my biggest box finally arrived, my KB A- FOTK kit. The build can finally begin! (I’m sure there will be things I’m missing)

 

Next, find time to sort and label things and continue researching others KB builds to get a better feel for how these kits go together.

Great, thanks! 
looking forward to learning and sharing what I come up with. Perhaps even coming up with my own solutions to teach others along the way. 
 

I have been building an R2-D2 with my brother for over 4 years now I think. It’s been for sure a challenge and great learning experience!

You made it! Glad you were able to hop on the forum. Wasn’t aware you had been on one before. Look forward to seeing your progress! 
 

And btw, if you can’t tell from my profile pic.. I’m a huge R2 fan! That’s a pretty impressive project to undertake. I can’t imagine the amount of work and patience something like that would take. And money of course!! Lol

 

Hope I was of some help getting you over here! We have lots of KB builds going on at the moment and several that you already know of. Again, welcome to the FISD! Glad to have you aboard.

Thank you!

yes R2 is a big project, especially because ours will be one of only a few that can transition between standing and driving stances. Otherwise known as the 2-3-2 transition. 
most people’ builds are stuck in 3, or static in 2

Im planning at the moment to be building the Force Awakens version of things first, but I have both standard line Anovos TFA and TLJ buckets. So perhaps I will find a way to make things work either way.
When my Anovos TLJ kit finally arrives down the road post lawsuit crap, I hope, then I can have either and choose the one to keep.

And so the trimming begins...

Grabbed a medium small size part to get used to working with the material. 

Finding the proper edge will take some research for each part. This edge isn’t entirely clear, but I think I got the top close, just need to refine the sides.
