R0 Dome - R0-D4 (un-official)

Here's my R0 designation dome for my R5 droid.

Possible change, but until then I'm calling him.......

R0-D4
(cross between the two)

I started building the dome in April 2016 after reading up on a post on Astromech.net by Sigge. He and two others had created and build in styrene, an R0 dome prototype. I wanted to try to build one myself, but as I wasn't sure things would work out, as the dome skin angle was a lot tighter than R5's. But it worked, lol I MADE it work :D

These two pics were taken at the Summer UK R2 Builders meet.
Still needs to be weathered.

Search up 'R0 dome', 'Builders Club Events' & 'R5-D4's events 2016'
on my main page for more on R5's dome build & events.
