Next the first go at the paint job on the 'bronze' Time War Daleks... at this point I was thinking I may need to go up to a lighter gold colour for the globes. The wire for the replacement gun was - well replaced... it's now a plastic covered wire with the plastic covering clipped back for the attachment and muzzle - replicating the wire look just wasn't working out, but this gives the weapon some bulk and should look fine painted up black (as will the plunger arm)... eye stalk and ear lights still to be done.
Finally with a lighter gold paint for the globes, the band and the panels... looks a bit yellow in this photo, but is a better match for the new look Daleks in the series...
I'm actually really liking these models now... I may have to get me some more....

WIP Time War Daleks
The first in progress shot of the Micro Universe new series Daleks. A bit quick and out of focus, but just to show the bendy plungers and gun arms have been replaced with good stiff wire and greenstuff suction cups - I'm considering greenstuffing the guns to get the ribbed wire effect, but not sure (it may not work, it may not be necessary) and I may yet replace the eyestalks with wire, but they are a little thicker and being shorter less prone to the bending seen in the arms. I've only gone with four Daleks for now for the Cult of Skaro.
