I recently bought the daleks in Manhattan kit and have just finished the ‘Caan’ portion of the build. This is the first time I’ve ever done anything quite like this so I think I’m doing rather well for someone who’s used to the instant gratification of action figures. I’m also new to this type of paint and I may have gone a little thick because I don’t know how to thin it properly but for a first attempt I’m pretty pleased. I’ve also done some detailing of the Sec mutant which I think looks pretty good, I’ve gone for a more season one look to the mutant because as the one from this episode was realised in CG it lost a lot of the viscosity of earlier appearances, also the one on the box art looked a little too much like Spongebob Squarepants to me.
I suppose you could take the normal precautions against an atomic blast. Sticky tape on the windows and that sort of thing.
