Foot Build work continued..... Longer Caster Pads

As part of my 'upgrade' work, I decided that the front casters were not far enough forward. Measured and cut out two new pads for the front wheels to be fixed to. This moves them forward a bit more, hopefully making them less prone to tipping.
R5-D4 Outer Foot


The new pad is now fitted and the old one is on the right.
When I built these, I didn't know how much the off-centre weight would effect the feet's movement when actually moving R5 around.


***** PLEASE NOTE THESE CASTERS ARE FOR SUPPORT/DISPLAY USE ONLY*****
***** THEY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR USE WITH MOTORISED ASTROMECH'S *****
