Mechmaster's Scale Daleks
Comet Kit Conversion
This Dalek was mainly built a little bit at a time, in the odd moments between other tasks when it wasn't worth starting anything more involved. Chris decided to do something a little different with it, so he essentially cut the kit in half and designed a bespoke interior using various parts from his 'spares' box, some Plastruct components and a tiny mutant model from Forge World, modified using Milliput.
For the dome Chris took advantage of the fact that P38 doesn't stick to styrene, pressing some filler into the kit dome and then popping it out when set to form the core of the head. Scribed plastic card was wrapped around the base pivot of the eyestalk to give it a ribbed edge. The pivot pin for the eyestalk has been replaced by the Comet kit's gunstick rod mounts. The base of the head is cut from a plastic disc which held dress-makers' pins and the dome pivot is the arm from an Airfix Dalek kit.
The top and base of the shoulder section were cut out with a compass cutter and a few additional openings were cut in the base of the shoulder to allow wires/pipes to pass through. The top of the shoulder section is another of those pin holding discs.
