Well, it wouldn’t be a partwork build if the supplier didn’t have issues out of stock. I am missing the entire Month 3 pack which should contain Issue 9, 10, 11, and 12. DeAgostini says they are waiting on a shipment from the UK and there is no ETA. Hopefully, I can continue with other issues in the mean time.
UPDATE Sep 3, 2019: I spoke with Model Space/DeAgostini today and there is still no ETA on the Month 3 pack (or the USB key gift). We are coming up on two months since I ordered the kit with no resolution in sight.
UPDATE Oct 4, 2019: Well, Month 3 finally showed up, but the Dome Support Rod from Issue 11 is missing. Also, the USB key gift was not included. I contacted Model Space/DeAgostini support and they assured me they will send me the rod in the next few weeks.
This 1:2 scale Star Wars R2-D2 model by DeAgostini uses a lot of screws, nuts, and other hardware. Just like I did with my BttF DeLorean build, I have created a dedicated page for all of the screws used during the construction. Check out The Hardware page!
The upper dome structure gets more parts and we finalize the right ankle details in Issue 8!
More of the dome structure and some right ankle details with Issue 7!
If you signed up for the premium version of the DeAgostini 1:2 scale Star Wars R2-D2 model build, you will receive five FREE gifts along the way. The first gift is an R2-D2 shaped 8GB USB Memory Stick, but they were out of stock at the time of my order. The second gift is this fill-color Collector’s Binder to safely store your issues.
The binder is hard-cover, full-color with interior prints and it holds 20 issues. While the first one is free, the other four needed to hold the entire collection are available by DeAgostini at the Model Space shop for $19.99 USD per set of two.
Another set of electronics arrive with an LCD Screen in Issue 6!
