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
Just had a fantastic time trundling around a couple of weekends ago, I felt that Big Red was a bit quiet for my liking so I would like to instal another amp within, thankfully there is a line out option on the mark 3b, but I am confused by the instructions (and thats easy to do).
It looks like I have to jump the pins where it says 'line out', remove C16 and C26 and connect a cable to the black and red points below and connect to a output connector on the box? The description in the instructions are a bit more involved, but I think this is the 'essence' of the modification.
if somebody could confirm that would be great, thanks,
I did a little bit of some research into what lenses were used on the renegade Dalek and found this:
This rubber seal belongs to an "Austin Mini Front Turn Signal" and seems to fit the bill.
The rubber seal could have been molded off the metal ring of a light indicator (like the ones above and bellow) but I doubt it.
Grayston light range
I'm not to sure if these Grayston lights are the correct lights as stated in the first image (first image looks more spot on) but they look very close. Its really hard to tell in that lightning >:( !
BUT I did notice that the GE82 lights seem to be what the Renegade Dalek supreme utilized.
Tell me what you think on my findings
Decided to start building up and clean up the underside of the shoulder section that shows. Sanded down and cut away some of the slightly warped fiberglass and placed bondo over it. I plasted the skirt and shoulders upside down as you can see, and then taped off the edge of the skirt so it wouldn't get Bondo stuck onto it.When it cured it was still hard to separate the skirt and shoulders but I managed to get them apart. I still need to do this again. Didn't get to finish this up tonight but so far it's looking good. I also need to fix a small gap between the shoulders and the skirt front. Will probably build up the front top of the skirt just a bit to fix that. More sanding and filling to come..
The only real damage was to a "Dollar store" "Tap light". It fried but not so much as I would have thought. The eye stalk was the only part of my Dalek that wasn't covered in Chicken wire.
On my entry, two Tesla coils were playing the Doctor Who theme. My Dalek did some dialog also but it was Acrodrome off stage doing the talking through his Moogerfooger.
