Return to the BUILD
“With R2-D2’s right leg completed, it’s time to start assembling the one on the other side. You first parts are the left shoulder plate and details, which are a mirror image of the ones on the right.”
I took the photos for this issue (and the next four issues) with my new Canon 90D DSLR. However, after a long micro focus adjustment session, I neglected to turn RAW format back on. So, I apologize if these images seem to be of less quality than usual!
Materials: The Left Shoulder Plate is plastic, but the detail parts are all metal.

It feels like we have done this before! Keep this assembly safe until we need it again in Issue 38.
