Once again, the R2 Builders Club presents itself with the well-known R2-D2 at the Faszination Modellbau trade fair in Friedrichshafen.

Founded in 1999 by Dave Everett, the R2 Builder Club is now an Internet community with about 5000 members worldwide. The Internet is used here as an exchange platform to achieve a common goal… to build your very own life-size R-Series astromech.

You can reach the club on the German website www.astromech.de. The German forum at forum.astromech.de

Our droids are built from all sorts of different materials, including plastic, wood, metal and fiberglass. Thus, there are several individual ways to build a droid. Anyone with some basic woodworking knowledge and determination can do it. It mainly depends on what material is available and what you prefer to work with.

The hobby of functional modeling is presented against a beautiful backdrop.

Throughout the day, questions about modeling will be answered. Main topics are 3d printing and molding of parts needed to build an R2-D2. Illustrative examples are used to explain how parts can be aged. In another presentation, many examples explain how the lighting works in an R2-D2.

At any time it is possible to take pictures with the droids.

We offer you model making to touch.

Visit the R2 Builders Club in Hall A3.
