    Hello From Cheshire

    Hi, and welcome. Read around the forum as much as you can. The build diaries in Builders Progress will give you an idea of ways of making parts of the Dalek. When you're ready, start your own build diary. It's the best place to ask any questions.
  3. Ive been scratching my head for years about building a dalek and i might get round to it now.

    Dalek Lightyear - 1960s Movie Dalek

    I just received the left part of the skirt, which had to be fixed up a bit since some of the hemispheres were damaged while they were delivered to me. Fortunately, a friend helped me out to fix the hemispheres back to their proper positions. I also received the dome, which had everything other than the eyestalk (which is being delivered in a separate crate in the future with other parts). For now, the skirt is separate until I receive all the parts so I can properly assemble the Dalek, but for now I have the skirt and dome as a good start.

    Very honoured that Andrew Skilleter used my Genesis Dalek for publicity for his upcoming book of Dalek artwork. 


    Andrew's work was such a big part of my childhood,  and was everywhere in the 80s - with good reason, it's beautiful, and for my money the best artwork Dr Who ever had.

    John's Red Baron

    It looks lovely in those colours and dirtied down. I do like a dirty Dalek. It must have been a right bastard to see out of when trundling with the front clamps in the way directly out front.

    John's Red Baron

    Well after a few years of moving houses , trundling about getting assembled and disassembled countless times, the old baron was given a well deserved makeover, out with the red and in with the (kind of) remembrance colour scheme, also sporting a brand new fibreglass skirt which was in the making for quite some time, dirtied down with an airbrush using browns and blacks, I was quite pleased with the results, now hes just a static prop as I took out the electric chair as the rubber tyres just corroded and pretty much flaked off, so now he sits relaxing just looking out the window Oh and yes I still need to do his Id tag on the cowl

    Dalek Lightyear - 1960s Movie Dalek

    I first thought about making a Dalek a while back, but it was until the start of the year where I ended up going through with the idea. The 1960's movie Daleks were my favorite ones in terms of their design, so I went with that design as my dream Dalek. This one in particular is primarily based off of the drones from Dr. Who and the Daleks, with its dome being based more off of the red sub-commander from the same film. Originally it was going to have a black dome, but I saw pictures of it with a red dome from the people I worked with for the project, and went through with that design because I liked it better and it helped make my Dalek stand out. For its name, I named it after Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story, which is one of my favorite movies of all time, and the name sounded really cool to me in terms of a Dalek's name. In terms of the Dalek's exterior build, the exterior was built by some very talented people I worked and coordinated with for this project, without them this would not have been a reality. I do plan to add electronic components (namely a voice modulator) once I receive all of the exterior parts and fully reassemble it back to its full glory. Before I add electronics, I'll test the Dalek out on its own to see how well it does on certain paths and also to get an idea of its movement, since it's foot-powered. Currently, I have all the main parts needed for the electronics components (special thanks to @elembivos for helping me out with obtaining the right tools and giving me a basic idea of how the parts should be plugged in, I'll definitely have to see how the modulator will need to be connected once I focus on the electronics more). I also just received one half of the skirt a few days ago, and I'm hoping I receive the rest of the exterior parts so I can begin the initial test by the end of the month. There is an image of how it would look when fully assembled below, taken by the people I coordinated with for the project. I'll keep you all posted about how progress goes with my Dalek, as well as any pictures of it during its test run. I also hope to take it to events and potentially conventions in the future.

    Am i right in thinking that you have to print 4 sets of these to do the whole neck?

    Hello from The US

    Hi there and welcome. @Enjoime25 Maybe start by introducing yourself in the Hello section https://www.projectdalek.com/index.php?/forum/87-hello-from-the-usa-amp-canada/here That's the best way to start to connect with members. I'll move this thread there. For copyright reasons, we can't allow the buying and selling of Dalek parts on the forum. Regarding the voice mod, there's an announcement about it right on the front page. The first post in this thread tells you who you need to contact in the US.

      Well it's been a long hard road but I've nearly finished. Electrical work is really hard for my tiny brain but after lots of trial and error I've got everything working.
      I thought I'd let you know some of the statistics of this ridiculous idea I had.
      Over 3000 led lights.
      Flashing hemispheres when I speak.
      81 individually created stained glass effect panels.
      600 metres of lead
      50 metres of wiring 
      3 x 55Ah batteries 
      Bespoke chassis to carry the frame 
      A steel welded frame to hold the panels
      A 12inch frame lifter that bolts to the chassis.
      2 gun mounts (still to finish but working)
      A tilt system so I can bow
      A 12v electrical system for all the lighting
      A 24v system to power the actuators on the lift, tilt and weapons 
      Weighing and almighty 350kg when I'm sat in him
      A console full of switches and buttons so I can turn everything on and off
      The only thing I haven't made was the voice mod because I was lucky enough to get one of the new ones available here.
      It's been about 10 months from start to finish on days off and some evenings in a tiny room about 6ft square. I'm totally exhausted but elated at the same time.
      I've got the weapons to finish and some lead work to do around the outside of all the panels and then he's done.
      The pictures show my awful wiring and hopefully you'll get the general effect from others.
      Thanks for reading and I'll do some final shots when he's finished.

    • Full Size 3D Printable NSD-like Dalek
      Hello all, I hope some of you find this useful, and no one finds it frustrating...
      These are the STL files I designed and used to print Duma.  You can read all the details here: 
      I used this project to gain experience both with CAD and 3D printing.  Both of which I had no experience with before starting.  I started at the top and worked my way down, and you can see how my skills developed a bit as progress was made.  There are places where things don't quite match the plans, most notably the NSD dome grooves are missing.  I didn't have the skills at the time I did the dome to make that happen.  One other thing to note, that you might not notice is the eye stalk is slightly shorter than the plans.  This was done intentionally to fit a lamp rod down the center to reinforce it.  Straight up 3D printed stalk was not strong enough by itself.  Likewise the gun and plunger have lamp rods through them too, but I used long enough rods that they could be trimmed to fit.  I took artistic license here and there, for the most part it follows the plans...

      At last, he's done. I picked up the metalwork yesterday, cut to final length, drilled the holes then painted it all matt black.
      All fitted this morning. Here are the innards of the dome.
      This is what the top half looks like from inside.
      And here's the finished article.

      Made a few shots with a stock model to try and give otherwise static scenes a little life. Quite pleased with the results, so I might try and do more like this, introducing cameras / operators etc...

      A render of my still-WIP Mechanus set. Aside from a couple of tweaks it's just the background decoration to go now. Might yet tweak the lighting to get it to more closely resemble the real thing.

      Presenting the Project Dalek 'Dalekalendar' 2021.
      The Daleks are having a tough time on Skaro with a viral outbreak that mirrors our own problems, here on Earth.
      With CG images created by Forum members, @WhosWho, @Grythandril and @AntLamb the calendar charts the progress of the Daleks as their High Council deal with an emerging pandemic.
      Naturally, a selection of Forum built Daleks join-in with the emergency Zoom meetings throughout the year, along with one or two unusual interlopers.

      Now, instead of doing the rational thing and making a new Imperial Special Weapons Dalek I took those brand new shiny plans and butchered them into this! 😅
