  1. Hmmm... He's a canny lad, old Zapper. Brilliant work, as always, mate. The highlight of my Sundays, is this. Erm, I think I'm channelling Yoda.
  2. A week! What on earth are you playing at? Should take you 10 minutes. It's always worth going the extra mile - or hour - in the sake of accuracy. I've lost count of how many errors crept into my models through a lack of concentration. I blame the kids.
  3. They look bloody marvellous! Funny thing is, it took Iain here at PD to make me appreciate the Turner Daleks. As a kid, I hated, 'em; I just wanted to see the regular versions. Funny what's important when you're 6 years old.
  4. Lovely work. Damn shame it's disappeared. Still, I reckon you could make it again, no bother.
  5. Nice work. I like how the Emperor echoes your previous version.
  6. It's easy enough to accept the story as a well told, well "drawn" graphic novel, and then just read and enjoy on that level. But then, looking at individual frames, I'm once again reminded just how much stuff is actually going on in there. I honestly don't know how you do it; just one single render is a visual treat but to build up such a fantastic story with them is nowt short of spectacular. Did I mention I think it's pretty good?
  7. You're welcome. Glad it's all working.
  8. The eyestalk is made to fit one way only in the pivot assembly and it looks like the pivot has broken. That's unusual, since the eye is designed to "snap" off without breaking anything. Assuming the wiring isn't damaged in either the Dalek itself or the stalk, you could try to scrape the glue away from the end of the stalk, then try to make a temporary attachment to see if it works ok. Since the blue light is a LED, it will only work when connected one way; you can't reverse the polarity of the neutron flow circuit, since the LED won't allow it. So, if it doesn't illuminate, turn it round and try again. If it still doesn't work... I dunno. Anyhow, if it works, all well and good. If it don't, well at least you still have the whole Dalek. The eyestalk assembly isn't made to be taken apart; the manufacturer used to sell replacements as one complete unit. Far as I know, they only have replacements for the New Paradigm type now. I guess you could always email 'em if all else fails. If you have reasonable modelling and dismantling skills, maybe make a replacement but taking the Dalek apart is asking for a world of pain. They ain't designed to be dismantled. ISTR there's a thread on here all about it. I don't have the instructions to mine any more - thank the kids for that - but there's really nothing special about 'em. They're dead basic; "Put batteries in this bit, press this button, don't put yer Dalek in the oven or give it a bath, don't try to eat it..." and so forth. Addendum: Looking at your pics again, it looks as if the pivot isn't broken, after all. Maybe the eye was loose but I can't see why it's been glued. Sorry, that's all I got.
  9. "...they do not have mothers" that, and Grexzol's attempt at the Mechonoid language...:D The Atom Smashers are brilliant, mate! Oh, and "Metal Swarm". Better and better.
  10. Lovely stuff! If only they'd looked as good on screen.
  11. Quite so.
  12. Lovely stuff! There's something just intrinsically right about seeing loads and loads of Daleks slugging it out with the Mechonoids. The panels showing the eye close ups are grand. Any chance of letting on what the bar codes say? The software I have won't translate 'em.
  13. billy-home made an excellent CG model (sans mutant) which will provide plenty of visual references and measurements, if suitably scaled in a modelling/rendering app.
  14. That looks amazing. Well done, you guys.
  15. Typing with your feet or not, the story is as superb as ever. An absolute gem, and the very last panel is the best of all. I now have tea sprayed all over my screen. Thanks a lot, pal.

      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
