A new year, a new dalek

Over the Christmas break I started work on a new scale dalek. This will be an Ironside dalek.

I have completed the base and am now in the process of strengthening it. The skirt is cut out and I need to cut some more pieces out then I will be able to glue it together.

This is what the base looks like. I made only one major mistake (bottom right corner), even though I measured 4 times and cut once. I will take care of it with filler.

Here is an underside side view. I have covered the joins with newspaper to make the joints stronger

This foam board should make everything more sturdy once glued to the underside of the base

I will add foam board across the joints of the skirt panels too.
