Make: Eddie Bot

Some months ago, I ran across a robot that I thought looked cool that would be fun to paint. The name of the artist is Paul Braddock. Initially I found him here. But, it’s a resin model that isn’t available and costs $170 for the model, which was more than Read more…

Make: Muppet 911!
