Chiara's 1/3 2005 Dalek

6 posts in this topic

Hello to everyone! My name is Chiara, I'm from Italy (for this I'm sorry for my bad English :lol:)  and I'm going to build my first Dalek!

Really I haven't no idea of what I'm gonna do, but I'll think of something when the time is right. I do not know how long it will take because my free time is really little, but I think it will be fun!

My Idea is to realize a remote-controlled 1/3 2005 Dalek, with light and right voice. I believe that the project will change shape over and over again depending on the difficulty or the ideas that come to mind. For this, stop word and ruler in hand!

Day 1: I'm going to start from the skirt, after endless accounts are managed to make peace with the math (Not that the count was so difficult...you know is just /3!) and find the right measures. I marked the basis on the wood (I don't know the name of this wood in English. In Italian is "compensato", and Google translate says that is "plywood", but i really don't know)  and then I cut everything.

Then it's the turn of the fender base. For now I just cut out the pieces of wood that will form it, Tomorrow I will think of how to put them together to get the right shape!

Day 2: We have the base!! After cutting as many as 22 small pieces and beveled the parts of the base, I've put all together with a lot of hot glue and finally we have our base.

Tomorrow I'll think about how to fix the upper base...  I thought it was a good idea to do the middle of the Dalek openable ... Also in view of the fact that I will have to put the wheels!

Day 3: Yesterday I didn't have a lot of time, thus I just fixed the upper base with the fender base. The hardest part was to align the bases!

For the next time, I think I'll paint that part. Then I'll interested in the skirt panels!

Day 4: First of all, Thank to everybody for the support! Yesterday I've fix the panels of the behind skirt, I've just a little difficulty with the measures because things have not gone according to plan.. but imaginatively it's alright!

I've change idea about the painting because watching your daleks I've decided to do the skirt black too. Knowing me, I'll change the colour a lot of times, for this it's better to remand the painting as I have clear ideas :D

The next step is the panels of the front skirt. I'd like to do this openable...We'll see how it turns out!
