Mouse Droid

 

DSC_0320Using some spare foam board and an old RC car chassis I decided to recreate a mouse droid from Star Wars for a laugh. I first used some reference photos and made a drawing to scale.img_0784.pngIMG_20170124_180735925.jpg

 

From here I cut out the parts in foam board and glued them together with hot glue.

It was tricky to get the wheel arches right.

The greeblies were made from bits and bobs salvaged from the garage.

The top and bottom are held together with velcro.

A small speaker was added with an MP3 of the squeaks the mouse droid makes from the film.

All I had to do now was spray it black and this quick build was done!IMG_20170122_113117421.jpg
