Members can use this section to introduce themselves and find out who's building Daleks near them. Please post in the sub-forum that relates to your location and also supply a town or regional location.
When introducing yourself, you might also want to add your location to the Member Map. This will greatly increase your likelihood of finding friends and help, locally.
Did you or someone you know meet/photograph a Dalek in the 60's, 70's or 80's? Did you take photographs of Daleks at a fete or at the Blackpool Doctor Who exhibition etc? PLEASE email or share your pics here.
Now you've built your Dalek, why not get involved?

So it has been decided i will be building the NSD. parts are already starting to accumulate, and the mk5 mod has now been built and working, yes it's probably a little early to be making it talk.but al will become clear s the build takes shape
Please pardon the gap in time.
Local domestics, malignant employers, and the Planet Mars have deterred progress.
STORM Rocky differs from GORT, on the choice of weapon.
In this case, it's the 5 Barrel Gatlings
With the kind permission of Mechmaster, he'd sent the Neutron Gun CGI and a local
friend, reverse engineered the subsections to STLs for the 5 inch 3D Printer.
These assemblies will have a "near likeness" or the original STORM with Gatlings
with some of the detail altered for "high speed strength".
Was lucky on the Rear Assembly - another local handed me a pair of chrome hub caps
which reflect special lighting nicely.
While not exactly "per say" to Mechmaster's Model, I have to make adjustments according
to the current budget.
These Guns will exhaust a low pressure Fog with Halogens lighting is up when engaging.
The end result definitely has improved in crowd control....
..more details to follow
May-July was pretty busy and I didn't get as much done as planned. I was able to get part of the skirt done and some of the Hemi's attached to see how they looked. The Hemi's are 4 inch smoothfoam balls cut in half and then coated in elmers glue so no cracks are visable and then painted.
I've found more examples, some quite a bit cheaper than the £32/pair that I showed above.
I had some very similar to the ones I showed above. The metal rim was removable.
But the example you've shown a 'screen used' has a simpler rubber holder for the lens. I associate those holders with marker lights, which can be quite cheap.
Seaching Google with vintage marker lights produced some interesting results. (Companies that sell lights that are in the right ballpark). For the UK, at least.
