ArJay - the little purple astromech!

"I can't remember ever owning a droid."
Obi-Wan Kenobi EPIV




In late 2012, I began my efforts to build my own R6 astromech - R6J5, also known as ArJay. Below, you can follow the build process, just in case you might be interested in building one of your own. All files for the build, including styrene blueprints and 3D STL files, can be found on the Astromech.net forums.

Here are all the head parts cut out (except for the skin). Now, one quick note (from the guy who made the plans) Definitely use 1mm styrene for the 2 dome top pieces. Using 3mm is a bugger.
