Did you or someone you know meet/photograph a Dalek in the 60's, 70's or 80's? Did you take photographs of Daleks at a fete or at the Blackpool Doctor Who exhibition etc? PLEASE email or share your pics here.
Now you've built your Dalek, why not get involved?

Started my Dalek build in december mainly from recycled material YES cardboard for skirt shoulders and neck thus far only spend has been hemisphere's £20 for 60 plenty. plus glue and loads of tape paint what was leftovers its a trial run to do a more improved version soon The Plans are Excellent
This was about seven years ago when they presumably still held plenty of the stuff in stock. From memory, the £40-ish sheet was quite small, about enough to do one Dalek. I needed to do two, so with postage it was pushing towards £100 which is one of the reasons I didn't go for it at the time. I took the cheap option and used Wireform.
Well, there is always the possibility that the persons Jon or I spoke to were misinformed.
For such an unusual mesh, it seems weird to make it prohibitively expensive. Give them a call, see if you can persuade them to run us off a few sheets of 922a!
My Sabertooth supplies the 5 volts to my RC receiver fine. If you have a look in the downloads section there is document I wrote on using a Sabertooth 32 to RC a Dalek.
Check that out. If you only have the RC receiver it should run off the Sabertooth fine. This diagram shows the connections:
0v needs to be connected to the black wire of your RC receiver, and 5V to the power wire (red usually).
