I haven't taken any pictures of my own yet but these are some pics taken by Tom's Refurbishments who restored and customised this TPE replica.

I am so happy!

I just need a proper place to put him.

I speak to you from the final days of Gallifrey. I am the past you have forgotten. You are the future I will not live to see...

That's a great K-9!

You must be very proud. 

I assume you are going to keep him as a "School Reunion" model with the rust patches intact?

Tell us all!


Regards,

Russell


Cardinal Hordriss

I'm going to keep him as he is. I have no confidence I'd be able to repaint him to a high enough standard. Leaving him as he is I can also pretend I found him somewhere like the Moldovar market or adrift in space.

Davros Skaro

Wow, a great addition to your collection, well done!

He does need some ears though. Are you going to get/give him some?
Chris.

Cardinal Hordriss

Well I had planned to buy some made by a K9 builder but in the end when I went to collect K9 the seller gave me a couple of 3D printed ears to work on plus I found some others on Shapeways so I'm going to give them a go.

New sucker - larger and more accurate colour.

New aerial - despite earlier pics the aerial was sticky and didn't extend much at all.

Nice sucker!

Is that the seal of Rassilon on his dog tag?

Cheers,

Russell

Rassilons Rod

That is looking great! But hells teeth those R2 units! :o <3
In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

Cardinal Hordriss

It is the Seal of Rassilon on the dog tag, I had a spare lying around.

As for the droids I also have a custom R5, R3, R0 and BB unit forming my TARDIS maintainance team. They're cute but hardworking with it.

They're about 13 inches tall, not including the antenna the BB-2B or Tubby is a little smaller.

Those aren't DVD cases those are books - old fashioned things made of paper in which knowledge and stories are held in word form lol.

The 3D printed ears have come but they look too small and I haven't been able to make anything out of the experimental ears the previous owner gave me.

Cardinal Hordriss

Update - I've found a model on thingiverse which I've downloaded, uploaded to Shapeways and sized myself. Fortunately they aren't expensive as because of the curve of the ears and not being sure if the width setting accounts for it there's some educated guess work involved.

Are they the right size...?

No matter what angle I tried his head looked weird so focus on the ears lol.
