Bin and Dome

 

All together now...

Here we see the neckcage assembled 'dry'. Even without glue, it holds together very well. At this stage, it still needs a few small adjustments to get the struts sitting correctly.

Wood glue and filler needs to be added to fix the whole thing together securely and fill up the tiny gaps where the struts pass through the holes.

 
  

Bin and Dome

 

Dome, neckcage and neckbin...

Test fitting of the neckbin (without mesh) and dome - just to see how things go together. The dome pictured here is the second 'pull' from the mould. This one has the standard square-edged eye slot seen on most Daleks.

At this point, the turning mechanism for the dome has yet to be fitted, hence the way the dome is sitting on the neckcage.
