  1. Well got my 3d printer during the week and putting it through its paces. Wanhao i3 plus. This thing is so easy to use,blown me away. I know absolutely nothing about 3d printing but after watching a few tutorials I got to printing. First print was the iris for my dalek then the eye to put it in which is printing as I type very happy with this machine.
  2. Looking great. Love the gunmetal
  3. Well I been tinkering with little things in prep for supernova, as this is my first con I been wondering how I'm going to climb into my dalek at home I've been using a chair and didn't want to have to run back and forward with similar so I made my own little 'dalek step' lol it folds up and is easy stored behind seat when I'm in dalek.just enough to get me a step up and in
  4. Mark looks great , gee it has some power to that dome rotation eh :} love the whirr of the motors adds to the effect , just great .
  5. looking great, like the gold on the hemis. Keep up the great work Just reading your post about cutting the wrong panels (3) brought back memories as I made same mistake first panel I cut and wondered what the hell was going on, you get used to doing this kinda thing throughout the build. Good luck with it I'm sure it will look fantastic.
  6. Hey David, as far as I have seen on here there are 3 main forms, trundle flint stone style, manually inside with electric wheelchair or remotely operated with electric wheelchair and special control box, can't recall the name of it. .of course if your an electronic whizz then sky's the limit. Me I'm sitting inside with modified wheelchair base
  7. Hey Mark. The best resource you will ever find is this website. Def would not be possible to make mine without the guys here, hats off to them all for the amount of knowledge and skill these guys have in here, I'm sure any problems with measurements you have someone here would have the answer Well gun update, scrapping the compressed air in the fire extinguisher as only get like 4 bursts out of it, sooooo I've yoked up a water gun lol works a treat here's some pix. Used a pump 5ltr garden spray unit $20 from bunnings.the nossle connector was angled so I hit it with the heart gun to get it straight so as to fit down the gun barrel. Pix explain rest I think. Oh and a look inside my dalek. Bit of a squeeze.
  8. I was thinking of rigging up the fire extinguisher I have so I can fill it myself. It would just be a matter of cutting the current nossle off, fitting a hose connection, to fill I'd just push down on the handle to open the valve on the extigusier and fill it to the rated psi,I'd just have to rig up a hose and click connection into the gun that would click into the hose connection on the extigusier after hmmmm. ...
  9. Well went and got some dry ice today to stick in my empty fire extinguisher. The working pressure on the gauge is 11 bar so had to figure out how much weight of ice would bring it to that pressure so put half kg in, screwed it all together and after hr or so had gone way past 11bar so 250g same thing. Now the kick off this thing is something lol. So ive decided that this is going to be a bit of a pain so I'm scrapping the co2 gun idea for a few reasons, the whole bottle freezes thus condensation, I won't get many shots off before having to refill (pain) plus don't want to freeze anyone lol so seems like too much trouble sadly but would have been fun. In a positive note I got some lights into the fender and had to use the dry ice I bought for something so took a pic using it to show a bit of a glow for the pic lol...
  10. Hey kev, yes is from a very old chair. Has 3 speeds and think I'll only have to use the first speed setting. Is funny I actually work full time with guys in wheelchairs and have driven them around quiet a bit so that will help but very dif to being stuck inside a dalek with limited vision so I think I'll be glad of the breaks lol. I'll be very tame on my first adventure. Yeah the wheels I deliberately placed centrally so as to get that spinning top turn which I thought would help to turn in tight spots,maybe over thinking it a bit but it sure does turn on a dime as they say. The supporting castor I placed at the back solves the tipping issue. I'll have to post pics maybe if anyone wants to see next time I have it dismantled
  11. Hey repeatedmeme thx yes even with it stacked and me in it, it Flys along. Yes I am aware of the co2 risks and will have my spotters aware on how to get the tops of the dalek quick should there be problems. I won't be taking short cuts and will rigorously test it out. I have played around with air canons and the like so yeah well see how it goes.
  12. Hey Mark thanks for that. Finally got it all done and seems petty solid. I made up a box type seat to go over the battery and stick a bit of foam on for comfort. Gets me sitting at the right height so far so good, won't really know how is all going to fair until I sit in it for a few hrs driving around, should be fun. I have ordered a roll of blue led strip to go under the fender. Bright Blue 5M 300 LED 3528 SMD Waterproof 12V volts Flexible Strip Lights.Question..can I just connect a battery to these? I'm thinking of using 3 cell lipo (just because I have a few laying around) anyone know? I know little about electronics.any help would be great. Also going to hook up a co2 gun.waiting on pressure release valve to come then I'll try to engineer something using empty fire extinguisher cylinder,see how that pans out. ..
  13. Haha yes Mark, to be honest I wasn't even thinking, that would have been funny to get that on video Well I stuck the thing in my fender and was not very happy with the stability of the thing, Because I made the motor thingy so compact it meant that I got a bit of rocking going on, I also felt it would tip back on me which I had seen happen on someone on a you tube video sometime ago so I tried to see if I could push it to that point, I nearly crapped lol Is in the video ( the tipping not the crapping) anyways I got a laugh. I solved the problem by putting the castors back in, 2 on the sides and one right at the back to stop the tipping, works a treat but draw back is I get that caster sound a bit which I didn't get with the wheelchair on its own, not too worried as is pretty sturdy so a good trade off. Anyways here is the video and a pics of the T-bar I made holding the motors to the fender.
  14. Great build,love your fender, gee I wish I could just pop down to Cardiff lol that would be pretty cool to see. Great pix.
  15. Thx guys Well Supernova is coming in a few moths and I have to get this sucker fitted with my wheelchair motors, so I cut the chair apart down to the motors and wheels, welded up a frame that would fit in my Dalek, removed the two front wheels and welded one of them on a cross bar at the front to make a three wheel set up. That done, next have to figure how to attach it to the fender base. As I had removed a good section of the inside of the fender so as to trundle flint stone style, I hadn't much to bolt it to so I made up a T frame, I got that done as well today but battery died so Ill stick some pics in later. Im hoping with my set up Ill get about 60 to 70 mm clearance from ground to bottom of fender. Here is some pix and a video of me testing my wheelchair frame setup, I just have the batteries set on top Ill come up with a fixture for them,I really look like a big kid, I had a chuckle. This thig has 3 speeds and setting 3 is friggn turbo!!

      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
