The last robot I built was with technical Lego when I was a teenager (i.e.: the 1980’s), so I was very happy to receive a kit from my wife for Christmas with the RQ-5 Paper Robot and the control electronics. I’ve been looking forward to building it and finally found some time today – mostly because yesterday I dropped a steel-framed chair on my toe and can barely walk, but that’s a whole other story.
Unfortunately, I only got to build the legs and the base of the torso before discovering that my kit is missing some parts, and without them I can’t continue. And it’s a Sunday, so I can’t phone the shop it came from until tomorrow, assuming they’re not taking an extended Christmas holiday.
I had intended to sketch it when it was finished – and still will – but in the meantime it becomes my first sketchbook entry for 2016.
