Dalek Sec's Balljoint Colours

3 posts in this topic

Hi

 

Quick question, what colour are the ball joints for the gun and plunger arm on Dalek Sec, some I see are silver, some black, and some one of each?

 

If i do paint them black, anyone recommend a way of them not scratching the paint off when I move them?

 

thanks

 

Martin

Black is the norm on NSDs. Maybe try and locate something that is already black, so that it doesn't need painting. Magic 8 balls, perhaps?

If you do paint, then line the holes with felt or similar padding to minimise scratching. It is possible to have metal ball joints powder coated, but this is expensive.

I get my balls powder coated. They cost the workshops minimum amount of AUD$60 for half a dozen stainless steel gazing globes to be done at once. Takes them a couple of days to do and, although I do mostly use felt to protect them, the ones that haven't been protected with felt are still pretty good.
