Cutting R2-Q5's Skins

I am starting on R2, I got my inner front Skins cut today, I am shareing the Table with Crissy and Calvin. So we take turns cutting which will take a little longer to build. Our 4x8 Sheets of polystyrene for the Frames will be in this week hopefully, it is coming in from Tennessee since my local supplier is out. More to come.

Starting R2-Q5

R2-Q5 was an R2-series Astromech Droid . R2-Q5 had black coverings highlighted by copper access panels. R2-Q5 was a well-equipped droid, with tools for repairing starships and special, hidden spy devices. He was also one of the few beings aware of IG-88A's infiltration of the Death Star.
During the latter stages of the Galatic Civil War, R2-Q5 was assigned to the second Death Star above the Moon Of Endor. When a Rebel attack destroyed corridors in the second Death Star, an R4 droid carrying a vital message was immobilized. R2-Q5 had to download the data from the downed droid and deliver it to the Emperer. He was destroyed in the explosion of the second Death Star.
Next week I will be ordering my Styrene for the Frame and Skins, and will be starting a new adventure ;o )
