I'm back at
work on the 2 robots.
The first thing I did is take off the pipe insulation on all of
I want to buy a router to make my knees the right way. So I painted
my knees black for now, untill I get a router.
I gave my tread boxes another coat of paint to fix them up.
I put my wheels on that I made out of cardbaord and my treads
are made out of cardbaord now my treadboxes look great.
My robot leg got a coat of black paint. Now I have to wait for
them to dry in the sun.
I put in new light rods they are a little big I put in new flashing
light on light rods. My torso is about the same I just
put in new lights in it.
The arm are the same to hold them in place
I put in machine screws 3 in each arms. I like how it coming
out so far it a big new look for me. ok I put all new lights
in and it works for me. I will have more pictures soon and
a very short movie to let you see the lights work. I hade ordered
a one channal light organ minikit to have my light flash when
the robot talks. On my tread boxes I put some wood under
it with some screws. This way when I put my home made wheels
on it wont touch the floor.. I fixed my tread boxes I put pieces
of wallpaper on the front and back and sides. It came out great
now I have to paint it. My tread boxes have a new look now.
My legs will stay the same. Now Im working on the torso. For
me I like what I did for now. I will have more later.
The gold torso is my son's robot that I got for christmas have
more on that soon.

The lights make these robots look good. Some of my lights
will blink and some won't blink. Now I have to hack it up.
I put the chest piece on the robots. Now I have that done.
So I will take a break for a week.

I have to take some pices off the radar later once I do that I
will put the ear pices that sent me. The ear pices are great.
It will look great on the robot.
Now I have to paint the torsos next week. My son's robot

Now I can paint them. I have to get the radar

I have started the radar today. I cut all the pieces out
and sanded them down, glued them together. Now I have to
start the collar I have to get the ribs bent for them. I
will have it done in Oct. I tried the bubble on top it looks
great on him. My wife likes it too. Thank you Mike J.
I still have more legs to cut out I will do that first.
I did cut all my legs out and put the pipe tape on the other legs
now it looks taller now.
Now I will paint the robot on sat. I have to put some
pieces on the treads on the treadboxes and the knees hangs I made.
The 2 robots look great. My sons robot looks great with
the parts I got from my friends.
I have to work on the lights on the torsos now, I will do that

I'm going to put the treads on now. I made them out of cardboard

them on today.
Today is sunday 10\2\05, I will start working on the lights and
the collars this week.
I hope you like them, please let me now what you think of them.
I did not
want to do the robot for a long time.
My wife kicked me in my butt. She said to me to stop feeling
bad, your son would like you to get them done. So
I said ok. I want to put one in my son's room. So
I will get going on the torso.
Now I will put aluminum paper on the top of the torso. When
I get done with that I will start putting on aluminum screening
on the top and the bottom of the torso.
This will help hold the plaster on it. Now it is time to
put the plaster of paris on the top.
I will let that dry for about 2 days, then I will do the bottom
I have found more wood to do the rest of my legs. I will
let the plaster dry now.
I will work on cutting the rest of the legs out next.
When that dries I will sand it and do it again with the plaster.
It is coming out great.
I have the torso done with the plaster. Next i will paint
the torso. I have to put in the arm pieces now. Now
I will cut the rest of my pieces out this weekend.
I hope you all like it so far.
Until next time,
Hi to all
my freands in the B9 Club,
How are you
I started puting my torso together. It is taking time to
do when you have kides at home.
I put the base together for the collar. I'm going to get
the rods for the collar next month.
I still don't now how I'm going to cover the torso yet. I
think I'm going to do what I did to my other robot, I used plaster
for the torso and that worked out good. My 2 new robots
are coming out great. I have to take my time on them now,
I have to put the arm holes on the torso now. I used
the same wood for my torso like I made my tread boxes.
The wood was free. If you look at my tread boxes you will
see the same wood.
I started puting the the holes in my torso for the arms. I
am going to do itthe same way I did to my other robots. I
used plaster to cover it. I hope you like what I did so far.
Part 3 coming up soon!

Hi to all
my friends at the B9 Club!
My name is Joe Norman, B9-0156, I have been in the club for a
long time. I was in the club for 3 years when my friend
Dewey had it.
I've been working on my Robot for a long time. I made one
out of cardboard and paper mache. That Robot is on
the club site.
Now I'm working on a good Robot for my kids. I have 5 kids,
3 girls and 2 boys. My 8 year old boy wants to help me.
Now my Robot will be made different from all of yours, I
do not have a lot of money to do this.
I want to to make 2 Robots for my 2 boys, so I will start now.
Now you have to remember that I do not have a lot of money.
I went for a walk today, I found some wood paneling so I picked
it all up. Now I'm going to use this for my Tread boxes.
I took out the Mark Thompson prints that I have. I have
1/2 inch thick pieces of wood for the parts I need to put it together.
Now, I have two boys, I have to make two.
I traced all the pieces and cut them out.
Now I put it together, I used wood glue and drywall screws about
2-1/2 inches. I put them together and I like them. I'm
not done with it yet. The wood panels did a great job.
Now I have to work on the wheels and tread belts too. I
will like to start on them.
Please let me know what you think of them, tell me what else I
can do to them. You can tell me on line on the B9Builders
hope you all like it. I'm not done with it yet.
