Star Wars Droid: R3-T6 Astromech Droid 

       
 
R3-T6

Most of this custom is a simple repaint of an R2 chassis. The biggest modifications are the additions of the corner access patches, and the new head. To create the dome, I used the center of a blister pack that held cloth tape. The dimple that held the spool in place was the same size and shape as the original R2 dome. I created the "brain" from various resistors and relays from a computer board, along with bits of wire and metal. The dome is held in place by the silver band around the neck of the droid.
