  1. Mooncrests kit is great out the box, beautifully cast, nice detail and looks accurate. I've replaced a few bits, notibly i've added white perspex on the rear console of the chair, built a more accurate backrest,replaced the beads on the head cage and built a custom made base. All the work is detailed in the WIP thread. So here he is, Davros played by Terry Molloy from Resurrection of the Daleks broadcast in 1984.
  2. Been away from the hobby for along time, but dipping my toe back in the water again with this kit. All my previous modelling has been 1/35th german armour but sci fi is a big part of my life as well, so here goes. This kit is mixed media resin, plastic and metal. Quality of parts and moulding is first class, a bit of clean up and filling but nothing more than any other kit. The kit does present a number of challenges and i have modified and changed some parts for more accuracy but that is in no way a critic
  3. I have nearly finished the Natter and so for my next project I am going to do something completely different, a vac formed Dalek! I purchased this kit sometime in the mid 1980's, apparently its quite rare and valuable these days. My belief is that kits are for building so its good that this one’s time has come. I selected it for a change of pace and to tie in with this year's Dr Who 50th anniversary celebrations. This is what I've got: There is an apology from the supplier (presumably Stuart Evans), I'm sorry its taken so long to get round to it:
  4. I've been trying to find one of these kits for a reasonable price for quite some time and fianlly I managed to snag one that didn't make the wallet have palpitations. Due the excitement of getting this, I had to put the current Walrus build to one side and start this almost immediately! Its not a difficult kit to build, considering it is a limited run from the 1990s. The biggest problem I had was with the metallic finish! There are 3 shades of metallic paint: Dome and Skirt: Mr Color Aluminium airbrushed Shoulder vertical bars: Mr Color Aluminium brush painted Horizo
  5. Does Britmodeller need one or more Dalek emoticons? I can think of a few ideas: Normal Dalek Melted Dalek Killing Dalek Cuddly toy Dalek Dalek in love Happy Dalek Sad Dalek
  6. After lurking here for some time I have finally taken the plunge and decided to post a WIP. Some caveats... this is not going to be quick or easy and could well remain unfinished - I just don't know what my skills are at this point. I was so unsure about posting a WIP I never took any photo's throughout the build up to this point. I'm sure you guys will still get the idea though. So, starting with some basic materials, and an even more basic tool kit. I managed to amass a bunch of parts similar to those shown here. It sure is a lot of faffing about to post an image here (other forums I a
  7. In between building the DB5, Robby, and B9 (and a few other odds and ends), I started on this kit. I really didn't intend to start this kit for some time, but I seem to be having lots of down time while waiting on one thing or another in those builds I mentioned above, and needed something to break the monotony.... and this was it. Let's start at the very beginning, it's a very good place to start.... It's the Comet Miniatures Dalek. I have heard that the kit has issues, but they can't be any worse than my original attempt at a Dalek (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/2349
  8. I have been thinking about my current Dalek build and it really is crying out for some lights to be installed. My thoughts are two red flashing LED's on the dome and possibly another in the eye stalk. I can probably manage to wire up an LED but how do I go about creating a flashing effect? I would guess that I could get some sort of module from Maplins (there is a handy local store in Aberdeen). I think I will also have to create a base as somewhere to install the batteries. Any tips or advice from electronic wizzes out there would be appreciated. Nigel
  9. Twenty hours or so after I filled the base of my vacformed Dalek with casting resin I found a small area where the plastic had softened to something a bit like stiff chewing gum: It more or less elastically recovers: I don't know the resin chemistry but it is one of those clear embedding types, I got it from Hobby Craft and filled it with some powdered filler and black weathering powder. It only appears to have affected a small area about 1 by 2cm. Has anyone seen anything like this? Will the plastic reharden or is there anything I can proactively do about it like putting it in a low ov
