Very, very nicely done! I did a PE version of this. It's actually one of my all time favourite Dalek colour schemes.

Thank you. I wish I could have done a PE version but I do t have enough spares, I only have 1 and I have plans for that.

Very good job, the slats are nice and shiny. This scheme reminds me of the 5" RC Dalek that came in the Dalek battle packs years ago.

I was sure I’d posted photos of my finished Renegade dalek but it appears not so here it is. I actually finished this weeks ago so now it’s joined my others to collect dust.

This will actually get an upgrade in a week or so with something I’ve been planning for a while.

That looks really good. Did you file off the rivets on the shoulder slats?

All gorgeous, of course. I am curious about how you feel about the PE mechanisms vs CO. Traditionally, aside from limited motion/articulation in the PE ones, it was said they were simply prone to breakdown. With so many, have you experienced that? Also, have you considered some way of upgrading PE internals, or, while I assume impossible, even looking into if a CO mechanism could be used?

I did yes, I had intended to use them on an imperial style dalek and go with the gold card option like on my black and gold one but in the end did this colour scheme so it ended up without the rivets.

Most of mine are broken, I’m not sure how many/if any of my daleks actually have any working electrics. In my customs I’ve completely removed all the electronics so they are non functioning. I feel like the way the head and eye works are very similar in both brands of dalek, as for the rest of it I’m not really sure. Next time I open a PE dalek I’ll have a look at what’s in there.

A few days late but here it is. The red and silver dalek from The Enemy of my Enemy, to be released by Big Finish as part of Time Lord Victorious.
