Museum Specialist Matt Voight preparing to paint the adapter he built for the model R2-D2 for the Star Wars Full Scale Prop X-Wing in the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar at the  Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA.

A full-size X-wing will go on long-term display at the Museum in the fall. Since the X-wing is to be crewed by R2-D2 Museum specialist Matt Voight built a mount for the droid.
