@00:19You're correct. Though there is limited information about this droid, the laws of physics would say that it wouldnt be too productive with a single wheel (a fact that I never really agreed upon). I went back and revisited the model and made that change, though I havent replaced any of the existing artwork with this droid in it yet. Thanks for the heads up!!

So I was researching droids and I came across this bugger, the S19 Astromech Droid. It was developed as competition to Industrial Automation's R-Series Droids. While it has some drawbacks to the widely popular R2 units, it fares better than some of the lesser R-series units such as the R4 and R5.

Essentially, If you want a 3D droid, there are plenty of R-Series droids available... some very high quality, some very poor. But if you are looking for something a bit more unique, like I do, its hard to find. So I decided I would take my model of my R2, chop it up, and turn it into the S19. Overall, Im happy with the way it came out, and surprised at how low I managed to keep the polycount (just under 19k).

I plan to incorporate this guy somethere in Diji's Droid-Stable somewhere. Not sure if it will see duty on his flagship, or his hangarship, but it will see duty somewhere... I really like the shape of these things... sort-of a R-series / EG-6 hybrid.

@00:19It looks great, but I have one slight note to make. I took a close look at the picture from the Scavenger's Guide to Droids and noticed that it seems to drive on a pair of tracks instead of just one solid one. It would be impossible to turn on a single track.
