Start of a new dalek, primed before being turned into a remembrance renegade.

Ooh, very exciting, I like a good primed dalek. Really interesting to see how that's constructed, especially around the shoulder slat area.

I’ll be using Vallejo model air medium gunship grey 71.097 for the main body with a gloss clear coat, the hemispheres are just vellejo black primer with a gloss clear coat ahd the extra black bits are likely to be humbrol satin black brush paint with a sprayed gloss clear coat too.

I’m unsure how exact the grey match is but it’ll have to do. My red dalek on the previous page is all vellejo paint (minus the neck bin, gun and sucker).

Thank you, I’m quite pleased with how he came out, took a few different tries till I got a colour I was happy with. I’m now working on 2 others although these probably won’t come out as well.

I meant to say as well, I liked how you used that little section between the arm and gun boxes on your Pebble Mill Dalek to mimic the gold oval. That worked really well.

Love the red Dalek, that scheme looks really great on the NSD. I think that might be my favourite of the ones you've shown actually.

Thank you :D I’m quite happy with it, I’ve never seen the gold oval but was told by someone that it did have one so decided to try and replicate it with this little section.

Thank you! It’s one of my favourites too, I’m really happy with how it turned out, it took a few attempts to get the shade of red I wanted but finally got there.

Actually finished (mostly) a few weeks ago, 12” dalek based on the supreme from Curse of the Fatal Death. Gold foil slats like we saw on the imperials, I did try and do the same with the lower band around the midsection abut after 4 failed attempts I gave up, I’ll go back and try again one day.
