Can you have too many Daleks?

not unless you have one for every Dalek seen in the series if they were all grouped together at once - both classic AND NSD, plus some of the most memorable designs from other people, such as from the web comic "Second Empire".

I have nowhere near that number so will keep collecting yet. My next one may well be reserved for a 2E Dalek, like This or maybe This one.

As to Davros himself, no. Unfortunately I have never found one in this scale of the Davros I wanted (Genesis Davros). Tony did do a resin one of Remebrance Davros, but I never got around to getting one.

Stuart Evans ("Sevans") did a very nice one, but it was more expensive and thermoformed, which at the time put it out of my price and ability range.

Sorry for the long delay in this thread. Unfortunately 2017 was a very trying year for me. I am still in a situation where spray painting is not an option at this time of year due to the weather, but I will be working on the basic construction elements of the first few stages over the next few weeks.

For all those who were following my "Temporal Mechanics" course on the Eaglemoss Delorean from "Back to the Future", I have been continuing the build, and documenting the process, so I now have a load of pictures to convert and post. I am still not completing the engine, as I have still not had the chance to break it down and re-paint some of the parts and fill some of the holes.

I have also dredged up an old Comet Miniatures 1:8 vinyl Patrick Troughton Doctor, and what I believe to be a "Tomb" Cyberman in resin.

I don't know if I can turn this [the Dalek thread] into an entry for the 2018 BOTY or not, and would like a ruling from an admin as I will be starting construction of the Dalek in this thread feom a completely virgin model.

I may, if I can't set this thread up as an entry, add in the other kits to this thread, or I may keep one of them - probably Pat - as an entry in it's own right.

P.S. Tigerace. Comet Miniatures did one in resin, the same 1:8 as their plastic Daleks. They are now "Timeless Hobbies" Found here. They currently don't have one for sale, but might be worth a look.

It appears that the build on this subject got underway in October 2017 and therefore the subject is classed as having been started ahead of the comp start date. Allowing a re-start from a fresh kit as a means of allowing entry could be deemed as unfair. However, if current entrants are happy for you to restart this topic with a fresh kit as a means of BOTY 2918 entry, then we will allow this.

BotY2018 entrants - Can you please post here of your approval or disapproval. For it to be allowed, all current entrants must approve, thanks.

I am fine with it as long as it’s a fresh start with a new kit and a new thread.

Hi

In principle I have no issue with this on the basis that it is a fresh start with a fresh kit,

I do wonder if it would be better in a new thread however just for tidyness

Either way i have no issues

Thank you all for the support.

Yes, it would have been a fair contest with me starting a virgin kit.

However, and in no small part due to the positive response there has been so far, I withdraw the request.

I have other models I can work on which may also give me a great deal of pleasure and the impetus of the competition I was looking for.

I apologise for the trouble I may have already caused to Tomick and those who have already entered the competition, but I will enter something else this year.

[and on a purely selfish note, I have no desire to enter something that anyone could doubt was completely within the rules.]

Sorry I didn't see this until too late! (Only just got home from an ultra-sound scan!) I would have been quite happy for you to start on a new (fresh) kit. Perhaps you could find one of the Airfix kits of the Daleks in Manhatton as a replacement?

Oh yes, this will continue. I hope to have something more up over the weekend, but any painting is very hard to organise at the moment. I am renting a very small place, can't do spraywork indoors, and it's cold as a w.............. let's just say it's not far enough above freezing here at the moment to think of undercoating or priming at the moment.

I want to start the skirt soon though as I may get a chance to do some work in about 3 weekends, but I have to split that between a Dalek and my Federation Interceptor.
