Finally found a passable Dalek ship on Shapeways other than that really expensive one of the remastered saucers from Invasion Earth.

Anywho... no weathering yet but...

Would love to get one if reasonably priced.

Well I screwed it up royally.  Apologies. 
You attached the pictures twice and inserted them once.  So the set you inserted appeared normally and the attached set appeared as greyed-out "ghosts."  So I went in to delete out the ghost images but I deleted out the wrong batch and the software isn't smart enough to use insert the non-deleted attachment--even though it has the same name.  It also wouldn't let me un-delete anything; there was no way to use preview to see if I'd done it right. 

If I'd been thinking, I'd have just deleted the bad [insert statements] and inserted the good ones but instead I managed to delete some of the good attachments.  Again, apologies.  Please do upload them again. 

[Grr...even trying to explain the process this new software uses to upload images is frustrating.]

Thank you for trying. There was a glitch on my phone while I was posting that I think contributed to the cock up.

This is the model in question-

Sounds about right.  Even on the laptop I'll run into that, where it looks like it stalled or didn't load so you retry and realize now you've got 2 copies.  FYI I did know a thing or two about HTML programming, back in the day, which was why I wasn't worried about which version was "inserted."  In basic HTML, you have a file that has images.  Then the code calls for an image by name.  As long there is a file with that name, it uses it.  That said, as I type this, I realize the software must've stuck a hidden "(2)" on the duplicates.  Otherwise it would've overwritten the first upload--getting rid of the initial bug in the first place.  :)  Thanks for your patience.  And my nerdy rambling. I hope you upload the pics again.  I'll have to think about saving copies of anything locally before doing any editing, but given what they pay us...;)

These are the 3 missing pics. The model does come with boarding ramps but they are stepped so not very Dalek like and make the saucer look much too small.
