Star Wars Droid: R6-A4 Astromech Droid 

     
 
R6-A4

Because pictures of the R6 Astromechs are scarce, I had to guess at some of the features of this droid. I started with a basic R2-D2, and removed the head and third leg. When that was done, I created a new head from the base of a Matchbox cement mixer and half of a wheel rim from a 1/24 scale semi. Details for the head were made from scrap pieces of plastic, and the radar eye is a headlight lens from a model car.
