Now that my BB-8 is as good as done (99.9%) I’ve discovered that it will need something that it sits on during events and at home when not out and about rolling around. Also its a good spot to have while its charging. So if you’ve seen the deluxe version of the BB-8 sphero charging station I wanted to do a similar look. I’ll probably do an instructional video or documentation about how to build your own. Thats for those building there own BB-8. The pictures are straight forward giving you an idea how I did it but I’ve been asked to show step by step how I did it.I used a thin ridged MDF board for the basic frame and supports. Then a thin but flexible MDF board that wraps around the base walls as well as for the centre ring wall. Lastly, covered everything with 1mm thick polystyrene plastic.
After all of that I then used a chemical plastic filler, plastic primer, filler primer, and then the paint.
Anyway, here are the pics.
