George looks great!

I especially like the colouring & weathering.

Great job!

George is awesome,

I can only hope my NSD looks half as good as that.

Cheers,

Mark.

Bit of an update:

 

George is currently receiving an upgrade of a new fiberglass fender and shoulders, in an effort to reduce weight. He currently tops out at well over 80Kg's with the wheelchair inside.  I'm using George's fender to make the new fender mould and I am going to re-install the (quite wrong) shoulder slats onto the new fiberglass shoulders and keep the wooden skirt, to keep him "George".

 

In another weight saving move, the wheelchair will be pulled apart and the motors and batteries mounted onto square section of iron tubing frame, which my mate Paul (an ex-Boilermaker and fellow Dalek builder) will teach me how to weld together.

 

Oh, and I'm fixing up the shoulder buck that I made for my Ironside and every other Dalek made since George (who's shoulders I didn't mould up) and making a new mould. This is what I will use to make the shoulders for George and the next Daleks built.

I've made the shoulder and fender in the new moulds. They have turned out beautifully.

I will clean up both parts, pull the slats off Georges old shoulders and mount them to the new shoulders when painted. I purchased the square tubing and I'll dismantle the wheelchair to the motors, batteries and controller, get my mate Paul (an ex-boilermaker and fellow Dalek builder) to teach me how to weld with my brand new MIG welder and make the frame to mount the motors.

 

A much more lighter George will be up and running again soon, ready for the next convention.

Great work, I am just returning to making my MDF dalek lighter, is it easy to make the fender two part so it would fit in a car.
