Lee Ralph – Star Wars: Return of the Jedi – Welding Droid Miniature Replicas!

Here are my pair of Welding droid replicas I recently finished. As many know the smaller droid, used an MPC Darth Vader helmet for part of its body. Many other parts were gleaned from off the shelf donor kits. For some time, the larger of these droids has been something of a challenge to build, due to the original, using an ILM fabricated stop motion puppet head, which is not an item that would ever be easy to obtain. I decided to take up the task of creating my own helmet, using the dimensions of the Walker Bulldog turret. So for the first time, were finally able to recreate this never filmed, story boarded prop, of which both were sold by Propstore some years ago. Both make very interesting and dare I say cute little models, that are both a challenge, but very worth making. A version of the helmet will be available at some point as one was made for molding purposes.

Regards,
