The break between my last two postings was a little more than a month. This break was now almost a year - but here we go!
I mentioned that I was not aiming for a true replica, but I wanted to add some fun features. I have designed two doors for the sides which hold two flashlights. I got two cheap flashlights from AliExpress which I modified by soldering wires to the battery holders. I drilled two small holes (for the wires) into the side of the flashlights.

The modified flashlights are then glued into the doors.

Then, I glued some thin wood to make the four angular pieces that hold the doors, using thin rods. The angular pieces are glued into the droid - careful, so the doors sit nicely in the openings.

The doors are opened by two micro servos which are mounted on the base plate.

I'm also keen to see how it turns out. Lara wants to get hers to "do something" else as well, other than just spin and move...

I wonder if Oliver ever had any thoughts "I wish they'd let me do ... with it".
