In the never ending quest of conserving space in my workshop, a droid stand was recycled from an adjustable support stand ... something I haven't used in years. This provides a stand to contain whatever project I'm currently working on. And in this case it's the battle droid.
Last couple days, the hips and leg mounting hardware have been installed to the lower abdomen area. And the hip area was also welded to the chest. The welding continues to get easier and it's still a lot of fun. The leg attachment system I devised will make for poseable adjustable leg positions.
It's coming together but at this stage, it's a bare body which needs a lot of detail added as well as shoulders and much work for the head and neck. Also there will be a backpack created soon. And the wrists will be cut off of the arms to be remounted as poseable wrists.
