Any thoughts in the finish in this one yet? You did a lot of work 'roughing' up the Falcon are you keeping R2 Yavin ceremony fresh?

Surely he needs some carbon scoring at the very least?

I'm so torn on this one. Yavin-fresh would look great, Colin, but, as I, Cosh says, it's Artoo, he needs some carbon scoring. I might look at doing some scuffing here and there but don't think I'll go the whole Dagobah on him.

Now about a sandy Tattoine look - one I felt always really suited the little fella?
