Wow, it's difficult to tell the difference. I thought it was the one used in a lot of the photographs in the annuals. Are there any other pictures of it and the original puppet ?

I'm planning to make one myself but can't seem to find any suede or leather in that colour. Does anyone know where I could find any please ?

For Scarlet I use Pittards Red Leather skin, one side is Suede for the Tunic and the other side you use for the Cap and Boots, get the "A " grade.

Hi

Yes it is however I don't have any more pics if you are referring to post 7125
Thats all I managed to take,
But have attached some pics of another Scarlet that was sold in the 90s (not
Phil Raes) & is considered by those in the know to be the best Scarlet ever.

Default something a bit different?

Hi Guys,

So shortly after my Dalek purchase, this came along and I couldnt resist, its a Gordon Tracey Papier Mache Head, about 16" tall and has electronics (havent had a chance to examine the electronics yet, waiting for Captain Scifi to come and check it out for me)

It seems extremely well made / detailed so very curious to learn more, anyone have any ideas?

Chris
