Flatpack K9 – robots by mail

by Stephen Hobley on March 20, 2009

I just received the K9 flatpack kit.

Some of you know that a couple of years ago I started building a K9 (I thought it better to start with something small and angular before tackling a big curvy monster like the Dalek). I started strong, but things soon got out of hand, and my (then) poor soldering skills really were a major obstacle.

Things have changed quite a bit and there are some excellent robotic kit parts available – including this wonderful flat pack K9 made of sheet styrene. Light as a feather, and should solve a bunch of the issues I had with the original.

And the rest of him...

I’m in need of a K9 Flat pack. Everyone seems to be able to get them but no one is mentioning from WHERE.

Might you be of assistance?

Hi Steve,

I’m about to start on a K9 build myself based on the flat pack and I wondered if you had any updates on this project?

For others that are looking for the K9 flat pack there is more info here (you need to sign up to this site to view the details though).
