Now you've built your Dalek, why not get involved?

New to Project Dalek, looking forward to gaining practical knowledge, advice and design details for creation of my very own Dalek. Background in software development and electrical/mechanical engineering...which means I take 6 months of costly planning and design work to change a $1 light bulb...lol
Hi all i know its confusing but i dont know how to go about this i am building 2 daleks as i mentioned but have only started work on my 60,s type Dalek .I know i am posting as a nsd type but dont know how to change my posts to a 60,s type build diary.If theres a way to do this so that I can avoid any conflict i would greatly appreciate any help .in the mean time i have done a bit of work this weekend on my shoulders.I didn,t find it too difficult ,well not as bad as i thought .The only trick i learned when cutting the bendy 6mm mdf was to duck-tape the grooved side this stops the stuff splintering all over when cutting with my jig saw.Anyway heres a couple of pics of the weekends tinkering it looks a bit messy but im sure it will be ok when all the bits are filled and sanded.thanks for reading guys and again any help would be great regarding the poists being in the right place sorry admin
Well, When I said 4 weeks, I actually meant 3! I'd forgotten we had a week of holiday booked, so just back form a nice trip to North Wales, and now have 1 week to finish for Halloween! It's going to be tight!
If you need these David just let me know.
BEC WEIR!YOUR A LEGEND lol I have to mention Bec as she has helped me with laser cutting bits and bobs the latest is my I'd tag I drew up, just brilliant thank you so very much. Well that's it mods, I was waiting on the tag to call my dalek build complete. Next up is just the electric wheel chair fitting but as it stands that's it for this build. From my heart I thank project dalek and everyone who has provided help in making a dream of owning a dalek come true. Thank you thank you thank you. Just final few snaps.
