Robots right? You have robots do the painting for you. Because no human can be that goo--YOU! YOU are the robot!

Of course. Astromech.

Ok. Just stop with the astromechs.  Just because you're all great painters doesn't mean you can show off with your great painting skills!:rolleyes:

(I really love it!  Nice job!:D)

Ordered a second black one model so I can do one with BB8 on. ;)

Wow... I see you put the wiring on the outside. Propably because the plastic parts are just too small. Can you post a pic with the lighting switched off? I would love to see how you constructed it.

Here's a work in progress shot that give a reasonable idea of what's going on. In this first one, you can see how I've run the wires along the inner surfaces of the wings to the centre. There I ran them in (having cracked it apart fist, and down through holes drilled into it. Then (although I'm not using this method any more) I ran the negative terminal to the ball bearing used for magnetic mounting, and the positive to a 2mm magnet tapped into a hole drilled in the back of the body, then used magnetised connections so that it could be clipped and unclipped from the base.
