For the surround, I was originally going to use black however I decided to try out another colour, Flat Chestnut and personally I love it.
Theres basically three colours to this Dalek, the Ivory, Aged Copper and Flat Chestnut.
Here's a side by side of the black Hemi Surround and the Chestnut Surround.... its not as clear in the picture but there is a subtle difference and in my opinion the chestnut just looks so much nicer with the Ivory skirt
So the Shoulder section is actually a little larger than a regular Dalek, however I used the plans as a starting point. I am going to probably require some ideas from you guys as far as how to go about the turret.
As you can see, its going to be quite a challenge...
