Looking really rather splendid Steve!

Agreed!
Nice to see another Dalek being made (I always knew they'd take over in the end!)
I have a feeling yours is going to turn out looking a lot better than mine :)
Looking forward to seeing it finished!

I'm amazed as to how good the color from the eye looks. Please, tell me what that blue square is!

Hi

It's actually a piece of clear acrylic sprayed translucent blue...

Has it really been a year since I updated this?  :-[

I've since made a little more progress in the last couple of weeks. Update coming soon...  ;D

See... I get there in the end...  ;)

Wow!
That's is amazing & well worth the effort!
I really want to try an NSD for my next build, but not sure my building skills are up to the task...

You have done a great job, looks absolutely accurate & authentic!

Hats off to you mate!!

Nice one Steve! The Ultimate Home Invasion Deterrent. Your home should be safe.
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

Cheers guys!

It's still not finished yet, I still need to fit the motors and control mechanism. I've also noticed that I've still got to fit the little label under the eyestalk :D

Have to admit I'm not 100% happy with the dome and the neck. It will do for now, but there's a few little things that I know I could do better if I had another stab at it...

You're too modest, Steve. The neck and dome look just fine. (Remember that "You are your own worst critic" saying? ;) :D) Tweak away at things if you really want to, but just know that your menacing home security system looks just fine from where we're standing (which is hopefully out of weapons range!).

Speaking of weapons, are you planning to have your Dalek shoot some sort of steam (CO2, nitrogen, etc.) from the gun? (If it wasn't for the possibility of a seriously dramatic law suit, I'd think of a way of having the gun's extending rod connect to a Tesla Coil so when the gun "fires" and that rod extends (as in the Classic Daleks to flap the curled foil vanes), the rod would shoot a lightning bolt at the ground. Problem is, anyone standing close enough would get that bolt before the ground did... and that's where the law suit comes in.)

NO TESLA COILS ON THE DALEK GUNS, PLEASE!?! ;D ;D ;D

Sorted out the weathering on the dome so that the recesses are more visual, and I also got the lights working...

A sexy little "Over the Shoulder" shot, work it baby!

It does look quite menacing when its staring down at you, doesn't it...  :-[

Next up I need to counterweight the dome, as the weight of the eyestalk is causing the domes backside to lift a little. Then it need to install the motors... :)

I think you misspelt "mutant" and typed "motors" by mistake.

Nice work!
Kind Regards,

Ambassador! With all these Dalek pictures you are spoiling us!!

(Sorry, no prizes for guessing the crap Christmas ad reference!)

You know I think it's true, you can't have too many Dalek pictures!

So what's next on the list?

Russell

fivefingeredstyre

A Quark...  ;D

But I have to finish the Dalek first...

And K9... and the Sharp console and the little Cybermen Ship...

I was also planning on building a Gallifreyan Staser pistol as well

Not to mention in need to finish my Millennium Falcon I've got on the go...




And the new garage I need to build...  :-[


russellsuthern

Ha!
Oh well,
Enough to keep you going for the next few years, anyway!

Don't forget to have a bit of a rest over Christmas!
