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?

Looking for the close up photo of the portable graphic equaliser deck that Nick Briggs use's with his Moog MF102. Somewhere out there, I have seen this photo of him sitting at a table with the graphic equaliser, to fine tune in the sound of the Moog. Could be used as a reference photo if allowed on the Forum.

Hi all, more progress made, upper ring welded together and ready to be ground down (many thanks Chris ), tomorrow base unit to be done, more to follow . Brian (The small cog in the larger Dalek machine D= )
I just noticed that the forum does not have an SSL security certificate, so browsers connect to the server by HTTP:// rather than HTTPS:// ie: the connection is not encrypted.
This is only of concern really where sensitive data is involved, such as user passwords.
Any data sent to a server over HTTP:// connection can be sniffed / read by a third party network packet analyser. No big deal when discussing Dalek build techniques, BUT may be a big deal on the login page, as I'm sure there will be more than a few members who will have used similar passwords for this forum as their Internet Banking / PayPal / Amazon / Ebay etc.. It's something most of us have probably been guilty of at some point.
An SSL Security Certificate encrypts the connection between the users browser and the web server and gives you an HTTPS:// connection and little green padlock type symbol, so anything a user types in to the website gets scrambled by their browser, and then de-scrambled by the web server - meaning if anyone is sniffing in between all they will see is "sd£g$h9j%k4^5&*(" instead of your password.
Just thought I'd raise this, not to encourage the forum to by and install an SSL Security Certificate, but instead to raise awareness, and hope that anyone using an Internet Banking / PayPal password for this forum goes and changes it.
SSL Security Certificates have to be renewed each year, and have a cost associated with them, so to keep the forum costs (and admin) down, it can be omitted, but users should be encouraged to have a password very dissimilar to passwords associated with other sensitive / important online accounts.
Please move if this is not the right place to post this but I am looking for a hi res version of this image:
to composite photos of my Dalek build over.
They look ok on the low res version:
but they'd look better if I lay them on a high res version
