R2 Outter Legs

This is how I intend to build my legs .
Not a great pic, but it will have to do.

Is that aluminum tubing? You going to cut that by hand?

Yea, I'm going to try and use a bandsaw.
So the cut will be the same on both sides.
Do you think a bandsaw will do the cutting?
Then I'll have to weld the sides and the seam down the middle.
Let me know what you think.
I value your opinion!!!

Haha...well I'm not too much for hands on...but a bandsaw should work.

The weld should be ok...just have to grind it all smooth afterwards. I was lucky to have shop guys do that stuff for me (for a price).

I am getting a full C3PO kit from Goldenarmor. His stuff is made from a Star Tours version I hear, and will be a lot of work..but after an R2 it should be child play right? He has some tutorials for assembly on his site too.

I havent seen the new Ewok? As far as a Jawa...should be easy enough to make...
