That's all right I stole it from somebody else on this site. I cannot remember who. Hear are more photos after the Dalek comes out of the molds. These were taken early 2015. A coat of prima paint was added. At this time March I lost my job and joined the ranks of the unemployed. What a bummer with no more money coming in pretty well all work on the Dalek comes to a stop.

While I was unemployed I worked on the balls and the slats which were paid for before I lost my job. Then in late 2015 I got a job again more money starting to come in. So I purchased the final top coat of paint. I based the colour on the 5 inch toy Daleks that came out some tears ago. I only hope that the colour on these toys are correct. (Photos 3,4 & 5 are only painted prima gray) More photos still to come.       To John the editor. I had a look for guidelines but could not find it. Did a search this comes up as 0. I find this site very hard to navigate. I hope the four photos at the bottom of the page get deleted (just four not eight). Just to get to my own page I clicked on somebody's else page go to the top of page click on Builders progress diary then 1970's just to get to my page. This is the only way I can find it.

Are you using a laptop/computer, or a phone, to access the forum?

 

If you're on a laptop/computer, one easy way to find your build diary is to click on your name in the dark bar near the top of the front page. This will take you to your profile, which shows your recent posts.

 

You could also add a bookmark/favourite for your build diary to your browser.

 

Bits of the forum can be tricky to navigate. I also had to search for the Guidelines myself. :) Actually, in the dark bar (again) near the top of the page, click "More", scroll down to "Info", and choose "Guidelines".

This amazing site is HUGE and was intimidating to me at first. It is sometimes easy to get lost, but I have come to see it as well organized and worth the effort to learn to navigate. Thanks to RepeatedMeme, I just learned that the Guidelines are in the top drop-down menu; I have always clicked the link at the bottom of the page.

I, too, had trouble when I searched for the guidelines. At first I was spelling it wrong. My second try got 8 hits and all from 2014 or earlier (I cannot explain that). Third try was the charm - I got 7 pages of hits.

 

I am enjoying your build diary. Keep up the great work!

2016 saw the gun and sucker arm finally built. I originally had steel rods and two copper sleeves, but the person who was to do the welding for me said steel and copper won't weld very good so I had to get 8 brase rods instead.  Then came more coats of paint, wiring for the dome lights and a new wooden wheel base. Last but not lest a second hand power wheel chair which was broken and had to be fixed. This project is approaching completion some mistakes crept in during construction. My engineering skills are limited. It may not be 100 percent correct but I am happy with it  Well this takes me up to the post I made on the 7th February 2017 with the Pride Power wheel chair and the problems I have had with that.
