My dalek will have a name, talking to my friend about old films, and we talked about the Eiger Sanction, and came up with the name Hemlock, so now my half finished skirt, nearly fully sanded dome plug and shoulder frame has a name...Hemlock
They look bloody marvellous!
Funny thing is, it took Iain here at PD to make me appreciate the Turner Daleks. As a kid, I hated, 'em; I just wanted to see the regular versions. Funny what's important when you're 6 years old.
These are my versions of the beautiful ron turners Daleks from the comic strip the Daleks. As well as sticking to the artwork i have added a few extra detailing like new series elements, ie the slats, the paneling on the domes, and extruded parts on the base of the drone and SW dalek to give a more armored feel.
From left to right you have
The Special Weapons Dalek
These were created in 3ds Max 2014.
and are up for download. I will most likely improve a few things down the line.
