Dome progress, skirt, and some electronics

I got some cutting done on my dome lately.

I also started gathering my RC supplies to make this little droid roll. I got a VEX 6 channel transmitter and a multiplex receiver. Crystals are on the way. As are three RC robot building books…

Here is almost everything I need for the dome electronics. I still need a rechargeable 12V battery, a 12V power splitter, the rear logic LED plate (in the mail to me now), some resistors for the Rear Logic Display, and a lot of assembly.

I also got R2’s ‘skirt’ – which is the very bottom piece that goes on the bottom side of his tubular body. I need to trim it up, but even now I am impressed with it’s lines.
