Saturday spent fixing first bit of 6mm bendy mdf to my shoulder frame, I had a couple of clamps but a friend lent me about 8 and needed every one. My son in law loaned me his multi tool which cut like a dream, however, he needs it for work so had to give it back so went to Wickes and bought one for £25, a bit cheaper than his top of the range model but it still does a great job. Have fibre glassed my dome plug after waxing the he'll out of it, fingers crossed it will come off ok.
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
Still need to learn where I'm posting from using my phone to using my tablet, thanks to ReapeatedMeme for putting me on the correct path and putting a link, cheers my friend. Just a couple of pictures of my shoulders with a couple of clamps but was grateful to a friend who loaned me several more, all of which were needed to glue the bottom section
I am using these inside Martmods and with PDFMod's with complete success. You need to put them in a box and add a pot for volume though.
Otherwise, something like these:
Decent speaker makes a BIG difference though.

Started off the day puttying rings and the base.
While putty was drying moved on to cutting the whole for the front caster.
Routed an area for the bottom lights
Wheels and caster mounted on the base then painting exterior lip of base.
Putty dry so back to sanding rings.

Drilling 3D printed hemis and surrounds.
Mounting hemis and surrounds to the skirt. Colour combination looks better than expected. Grammie visits mean helping hands with lots of build education.
Cutting shoulder bands.
More sanding and priming.
