      Fellow Dalek Builders,
       
      My account has been still for a while now as well as my very empty "Build Dairy" for Dalek Seven. Just wanted to throw it out there for those that pop by that I am still alive and have made some progress on Dalek Seven (My custom Imperial Dalek). Wanting to get a little more done before making my first dairy post. Really wanting to make a single post for each section or part. Life slows your hobbies down as I am sure all of you are aware off. Hopefully will have more files to share as well within this new year and coming months!
       
      T'ill then, Cheers!

      Doesn't seem to be said on the plans but what is the inner barrel diameter of a Series 1 Dalek gun? Tried looking through key words but nothing seemed to come up.
       
      Or if there's a thread I'd appreciate being put in the right direction cheers!

      Apologies for the random outages today. They are being investigated.

      I gave the gun box a second coat of silver paint and also gave the shoulders a bit of a paint touch up on the bottom.   I also gave the plunger head a second coat of paint. The plunger arm was painted silver.   I have fixed the disks onto the eye using epoxy. This was then fitted into the cowl on the dome.

      Post the pics here and I'll update for you.

      Hi John. Thank you so much! I was getting overwhelmed and overloaded with so many awesome patterns to choose from. 
    • Ekij
      @Neil Betts I've been looking at the resistors and it appears that the red (2) and orange (3) bars on the resistors look brown (1) (This is just the first four for comparison but it applies to all the resistors with a red or orange bar) This might just be the colouring of the image but it may also indicate incorrect value of resistors used.
