    Ok guys having posted up a sneaky, peaky photo up on Facebook I thought I'd put one up on here aswell. I've been working on this dude for just over five weeks and I am over three quarters of the way to completing him. This is a pretty secret build as I want to surprise people when he's finally completed. With any luck and with how things are progressing with the build he'll be done by the end of May well in time for Collectormania, Milton Keynes here in the UK in June. This is my boy hood dream so I am going the extra mile to make this a spectacular costume/prop! I'm adding little bits of individuality to this guy as I want him to both stand out and be unique in some ways.

    He's now at a friends unit where I'm putting is clothes on (Paint)

    So here's a sneaky peak at HIM!.........

    reminds me of a Dalek on Dr. Who. Hard to tell what it is with that picture but I assume that was the intent.

    After looking at a couple pictures of Daleks, I am pretty sure that's what it is.

    Re: OBEYYYYY......... !!!!!!!

    Well it's been just over six weeks from the start of this project build to how you see him now. It's been difficult at times, but well worth it as I hope you guys agree. I wanted to achieve an old, battle worn Dalek, something that had a story/history to him and I added a touch of artistic licence to some of the build ie the neck lights, the mesh and eye. I spent three days Fri, Sat and Sun painting him up before I went to town on hammering the hell out of him to give it the "dragged through a time vortex backwards" look. I'm awaiting the Moflash lenses to arrive to complete the dome lights, still to add the remaining Hemi's to the sides and rear of the skirt and to add the discs to the eye stalk, then to order the voice modulator for that distinctive Dalek tone! Well it's been a trial but I am so over the moon with him and how it's all taken shape and finally turned, well almost tured out as he'll be 100% completed by the weekend. I really can't wait to take him to his first event in either June or July and to see how people react to Dalek "Draal".

    Re: Anubis's New Series Dalek "Draal" 90% complete.

    Here he is now completed well all except for his voice modulator. He looked amazing with the Sun on him. A friend quite literally kept looking over his shoulder and he said "it gave me the cold shivers"! Hope you like how he has finally turned out guys, I know I am, even more so infact!!
