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?

I have decided on a name for my dalek. Somehow, the fact that my work-in-progress now has a name, has provided a much needed dose of motivation. Dalek "Orin" is taking form! A fitting name for one so evil.
I'm too contagious to work and I cant touch anyone. I can load the dishwasher and washing machines but not unload them. I need to spend as much time as possible in isolation. So basically I've been prescribed 3 days of dalek building for getting a gastro bug.
After 5 Years, I have finally changed my profile picture! It is hard to decide, I'm a huge Fan of Dreadnaught and very proud of all he has done. But I really Love this picture of me as Davros! This is also the first time I have ever done Latex and I actually have less visibility that I do when I'm in Dreadnaught, I never thought that would be possible!
Cheers Bruce. I'm just now looking at the gun boxes and can't really work out the angles. By looking at other build diaries they seem to be angled slightly at the top edge. Looking at TV screenshots they look like there is no angles at all especially at the bottom. It's not easy to tell really. I want them to look fairly screen accurate if I can.
Yeah. The angles are fun for the fender.
I actually made an MDF mould for my fenders, so I could do them in fiberglass. Imagine making a fender inside-out and upside down.
It only took me two goes...............
Thanks Aaron. I feel really silly because I worry about nagging you all the time for help so I post on here to have you be your typically helpful self. You're a legend. Can't wait for tomorrow arvo, making spacers (are they usually round?) I was thinking of using a hole saw.
Sometimes it's good to walk away. I've done that many a time.
Good to hear you've got it worked out now though.
The angles are a bit of a bugger to get right. I did some of mine twice and still ended up with some significant gaps.
Thank goodness for filler.
