21-B (Medical Droid)

Medical Droids greatly contribute to the combat readiness of New Republic military units by returning injured troops to full duty as quickly as possible. This 2-1B unit is responsible for the medical bay aboard the New Republic cruiser Defiance.

Parts: Head (POTF2 2-1B), Body (POTF2 2-1B), Arms (POTF2 2-1B), Legs (POTF2 2-1B), Hand-held Scanner (POTF2 2-1B).

Supplies: X-acto knife, super glue, file or sandpaper, brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: Drawings from The Essential Guide to Droids, as well as various photos and descriptions.

Step One: This is mainly an improvement to the existing 21-B figure. I started by taking the base figure and cutting off his arms at each of the joints. I then re-attached each piece of his arms in a slightly different position. This allowed for a more active, mobile look.

Step Two: The entire figre was given a very dark wash. This was done to help bring out more of the sculpted detail.

Step Three: I cut the little post off of the hand-held scanner and gave it a new paint-job. The scanner was placed in 2-1B's right hand.

Step Four: Finally, I applied a light coat of Testors Dull-Cote to protect the paint and remove the shiny appearance.
