  1. Past hour
  2. Ha, great job and good post Kirk, he looks very cool 😎.
  3. Coming out March 2017 from Forbidden Planet. Celebrate over half a century of the BBC’s hit series Doctor Who with a brand new magazine and figurine series that covers every year of Doctor Who history, including all the Doctors and all the greatest monsters from Daleks to Weeping Angels. Every figurine is 1:21 scale, with an average height of 85mm. The magazine tells you all about your character and the history of Doctor Who.
  4. Thanks each. I was looking at your photos of the internals MRH, very good! Anyway? I soldered the wires back on and after a bit of coaxing he started walking 🚢! Great! Then with a little help I can get him to bend forward but then the shaft appears to be spinning in the cam and so needs a helping hand to get it to spring upright again which he does do. Either the centre of the cam is worn or maybe split? More investigation needed. I checked the remote with the meter and it seems ok. That said this top motor for the arms refuses to work. I put some direct power to the motor and twice it had a slight twitch. Still can't get it to run though. I have lubed the cogs etc and will leave it overnight now and try and power it up again tomorrow. Not an ideal result yet but he walks again and is half way to bending properly. Let's see what happens tomorrow. πŸ‘
  5. What I really like is the Daleks from the Peter Cushing movie from 1965/66 with there claws and those different colored ears. Doctor Who 8-Inch Infrared Movie Dalek Set Description: From the Doctor Who movie! Great item for fans of the show! Take home the many different colors of Daleks! The set of 3 pieces contain the following (subject to change): 1x Silver 1x Black 1x Red Each Dalek features full infrared control and sound. The head on the Dalek scans left and right as Dalek patrols. The highly detailed Daleks feature authentic movie Dalek speech along with a Tardis control handset. These Daleks are based on the classic 1965 Dr. Who movie, Dr. Who and the Daleks.
  6. A bit dirty inside, but as John says the gears look good. A good clean up and soldering should do the trick. Great photos, Ranger, always good to see inside and the close up gear shots.
  7. I'm sorry to hear of your foot issues Steve😒 Best wishes for a positive outcome and quick recovery! Take care my friend πŸš€
  8. Today
  9. Alloy (9.5") started out as metal case pieces to an electrical power supply. I thought i would keep the "brass" theme going with brass colored heat sinks (from a computer circuit board) and a spring gear case from an anniversary clock for the head. The spring legs are rigid while the arms have bendable wire in them to allow them to be posed in many positions. Alloy is a heavy chunk of metal and I'm really pleased with the way he turned out. Enjoy!
  10. Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow, Paul. That will sort it.
  11. Oh man I could have guessed entering this contest....the little words at the bottom....

  13. David got it as well - you must have posted while my pics were loading. Thanks for playing, Martijn & David, your prizes are in the mail. Mr. Xerox, you get one as well for your guess. !! NO PRIZES WILL BE MAILED OUT, AS MARTIAN GIL IS FULL OF S*** !!
  14. I like all versions of the dalek it shows how they have evolved with there looks and new weapons and the ability of flight with newly added force fields. This is what keeps interest in them as they evolve even further into the future.
  15. with a corner kick from the Netherlands... Martijn! GOOAAALLLL! my jenky, one armed Jim suffered a broken wire a few nights ago while I was re-shuffling my cabinet... and, he walked pretty poorly when I first got him. Since his condition is a couple steps below minty, it was slow and tedious to keep his tabs safe - all came through well though. I replaced his brittle wiring from a willing donor - a Japanese (French?) poodle. Ok, I don't really know it the poodle was willing, but it doesn't matter now While I was in there, I gave him a proper cleaning and tried to help his gait. Most know, but for newer folks - he's a pin walker with small metal wheels that contact the walking surface and lift. His inner leg pins are driven by an offset cam shaft - driven by his motor. The "hip" end of his walking pins had both migrated from the biggest pivot of the cam - to ride along on the outside edge of the shaft. That part of the shaft doesn't get the travel needed to get him walking... I cut some rubber hose pieces and made little slits to center the leg pins on the cam. He's better than he was, but he's not going to win any races! That's ok though, he's more of a looker for me anyway. Happy weekend!
  16. I'd go for Flashy Jim as well. R7.
  17. Mr Mercury?
  18. What a lovely line up
  19. Flashy jim?
  20. He finally arrived a week ago. I got a picture of all three in my collection. Since the red one was the goal, I guess I'll stop here on these guys, but they are great looking robots.
  21. Lovely photos of the workings Ranger, its been beautifully put together - a work of art! I'll keep my finger crossed that you get Mr Mercury up and running
  22. Yes, the gears do look good john. I will follow your recommendations. cheers πŸ‘
  23. The gears are in very good shape ! Very little wear on them, be sure to clean the motor contacts very well be for you try to re solder the wires and spray some contact cleaner inside the motor for the brushes, a drop of light oil on the motor shafts and turn them by hand a bit. it should take off.
  24. Marco, stunning in pink. Could even be a Tremendous Michelle.
  25. a MIKE a day... does that also count Xris ? Cheers Marco
  26. The brittle wiring broke on the inside of this old fella. I'll rename the thread for this repair and post some more pics later this afternoon - after someone names him? It shouldn't be too hard.
  27. Hi Kirk I did put some power to the upper motor earlier and it was trying to work a little. I will try that extra power trick when I have it soldered up. Won't be today though. Cheers πŸ€–πŸ€–πŸ€–
