5 rotator-arm thingies (see below)

1 left angle plate (same colour as 1x4 plate)
1 right angle plate (same colour as left and 1x4 plates)

You will need two rotator arms for this. First take one, rip out the arm from the base. Then feed it through backwards like so. Then take the other one, rip out the arm and attach the base to the new double arm.

Step 5: Manipulator Arm

For your manipulator arm, take the first double arm and add a cone, the attach it so that if facing it, it is on your LEFT, or from the dalek's point of view, it's right.

Step 6: Gunstick

suggestion for your photography: Use the Macro option (the little Tulip icon) on your camera, press the shutter button down halfway until you hear or see the camera focus, then take the picture. If you can put the camera on a tripod, even better, you won't need to use the flash. If you have to use flash, place a piece of tissue over the flash bar to diffuse it so it doesn't blow out the highlights...or go into MENU or settings and change your Flash Options to reduce the Flash Exposure Compensation to reduce power of flash.
