MOTY 2018 R2-D2 & C-3PO

Jason Gares has entered his Bandai 1:12 scale R2-D2 and C-3PO.

These plastic models are produced by Ban-Dai and are 1/12th scale (C-3PO is around 5 3/4″ tall & R2-D2 is around 3 1/2″ tall).

I used several techniques to achieve the look that I was set out to reproduce, which was the droid duo looking like they have been in the harsh, sandy, dry environment of the planet Tatooine, as seen in the original Star Wars film.


I used a Badger Sotar 20/20 airbrush for all the fine details and AK Interactive washes and pigments to get down and dirty in areas that the airbrush couldn’t.
The base is of an original design that used a combination of wood, Durham’s Water Putty, sand, stone and paint.

This build will be entered in the Figures 75 mm and Taller category.

    Beautiful weathering on the droids! The best improvement on this set is R2-D2’s head painted an even color.It looks better than the stock color.Great work on the base too.
