Thanks Guys!!!!
It's so nice to see him standing.
I sit and stare at him for hours.
My house is so small, All I will be able to do is go back and forward.
I got a few more things to do this weekend, But we're going to attack my wife's R3 and get her standing.
I made sure I called her R3 a she.

R2D2 Fett said... guys will have both standing?!?! Didn't R3 get started like a week ago (I know its been longer..just can't believe your progress)!!!

Great job!

I had to redo her Sit-n-Spin dome ring today.
The bottom of the SS was larger than the wood ring on top, So I sanded it down.
It took about 2 hours to get it sanded, Because the plastic was heating up and I had to let it sit and cool down.
You would'nt think plastic would take so long to sand.
