South West Engineering and model show

Another great show. Vic, Izzy and Zoe did there thing joined this year with Bubo

Frome Steampunk event

What a brilliant event. We will certainly attend more Steampunk events as the Steampunk Collection grows. Victoria was on form with her new Steam/mist system which worked faultlessly.

First Public event for Vic

Fleet Air Arm Museum.  The Dalek Invasion 2014.
Photos are all a bit the same as I only had a very simple camera.
The Steampunk design does look good in the darkened environment of the museum.
Everything worked fine considering it was her first outing, only one servo jammed which is not bad considering the number of servos used on Vic.

Victoria has been created.

Looks like the Steampunk Dalek might be called Victoria or Vicky.
There is still a fair bit of work to do sorting out the fine details as well as installing some new LED's and electronics. Vicky will have a new smoke system which I hope will work much better than the last one. I added the coal bags at the back as I thought they added a certain something.

Fine details

There is still a long way to go in this build but the main structure is now looking as I want it. Until the day that I feel it is finished the design will evolve and new parts will be added and old modified.

New detailed are constantly being added. The main thing I am thinking about when adding these details is that they need to look like they have a functional purpose. All the pipes and linkages added must look like they do something otherwise it will destroy the Steampunk illusion.
