    Project Dalek And The Jubilee Pageant

    You never know until you try (says I, safely 16530 Km away from any trouble caused)
  3. Today
  4. Dalek Two Zero

    Project Dalek And The Jubilee Pageant

    I think it's Horse Guards Parade, The Cenotaph, Trafalgar Square, The Mall, Buckingham Palace, Birdcage Walk. The route takes 70 minutes, and we'll be doing it at some point after 2PM I believe. Not sure what our options are before and after the Pageant, but I've got more than enough battery power to fill all my spare time patrolling! (though I doubt I'll be allowed to just roam at will across Central London..)

    Wow, this is amazing news. Congratulations all involved.

    I was going to ask; when do you start trundling; and what is the route?
  7. Dalek Two Zero

    Project Dalek And The Jubilee Pageant

    I'm so excited - especially as the route takes us through Trafalgar Square, where Dakeks were filmed in 1964 for the Invasion Earth story. We may even get a chance to pose on Westminster Bridge with Big Ben behind us...! Thank you so much for the invite. Dalek Two Zero is built for long patrols, I just hope it survives the 300 mile trip in the trailer intact - and that I make it through Friday's battle at Basing House in one piece! There should be plenty of tinkering time before the Pageant, as I don't think we're moving till after 2, but but have to be there 7-9AM.

    I'd at least give it a run around the block and see if it moves reliably.

    Thanks guys for your very kind words. And also John Kelly for a very fast build. I still haven’t completely finished the motorisation and I’ve pretty much got two days left to finish him. (I have four days of London MCM this week) so yes the pressure is certainly on. He’s going out for his maiden run at the Parade. No time for testing or anything. So I better get it done properly first time.

    @Damian Trasler The BBC are covering it (among others). They anticipate that over 1 billion people will watch the parade on TV around the world!

    Project Dalek And The Jubilee Pageant

    I would like to thank you for been invited for this once in a lifetime opportunity and I hope we do Project Dalek proud. I would also like to thank @Simons Dalek for his organisational skills in no just this event but also the MCM ones. I think we owe him lots of cakes/drinks! I am looking forward to this very much. Again thank you All the best Ben aka Dalek Decimus mutant!

    Project Dalek And The Jubilee Pageant

    Speaking as an enthusiast in Canada, I'm glad you guys will be waving the flag for the Jubilee, and I would love to see pictures or video of the big day!
  16. This has been under wraps for some time, but I'm told that it is now OK to let everyone know... Back in February I was contacted by a team working with Hemingway Design to help recruit authentic enthusiasts of various decades and also owners of period vehicles for the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on Sunday 5th June 2022 in central London. They were asking if it was possible for Project Dalek to help source some Daleks to join in with the parade. Given that the parade is over some distance, I knew it was going to require motorised Daleks. Following some discussion with the Events Crew's @Simons Dalek we managed to hunt down four victims volunteers with motorised daleks who are willing to take them along. They are @Simons Dalek, @Dalek Decimus @Skaros and @Dalek Two Zero As you can see and quite by fluke, we have three movie daleks which along with Skaros, should look pretty amazing parading together. One red, two black and one silver. I'd like the thank Simon for doing the bulk of the organising for this. He's done an excellent job liaising with the events team, along with having a breakneck deadline for his own red movie dalek. I suspect that deadline also put @John Kelly under a certain amount of pressure too. Good luck on the day, guys. I hope the British weather is kind to you. https://www.facebook.com/PlatinumJubileePageant/

    Raymond Cusick Future Dalek

    Well done. That looks great. I can imagine it in black-and-white in a 50s sci-fi movie.

    Raymond Cusick Future Dalek

    Beautiful! And this is my full-size (1400mm) actual take on Ray Cusick's design. Built between 2019 and 2021 from plywood, MDF, aluminium and EVA foam panels, Dalek Soraks is equipped with radio controlled wheelchair, Xerrimod voice mod and Bluetooth microphone. Soraks will be appearing at UK Games Expo at the NEC in Birmingham from 3rd-4th June 2022.

    Absolutely wonderful stuff! just had a quick skim through now. Its just so nice to have more concrete stuff for 70s/80s Daleks I imagine I'll be pick and mixing parts from this in no time!

    Goon Plans Now Available

    We are pleased to announce the release of our latest plans set, covering the Goon Daleks from the 1970s The plans have been in development for well over a year and have been a particularly hard slog to put together. I'd like to thank everyone who was involved. As many of you will know, the Goons were put together quickly and no two were exactly the same. For the plans, we haven't attempted to replicate any one specific Goon prop. Instead, we have taken the average 'goonishness' from all the props and used it to create a theoretical extra Dalek, as theoretically produced my Westbury Design, called 'Goon x'. For those who are interested, there is more information on this in the plans introduction. The Plans are available to Active Member subscribers in the 'Active Member Downloads' section, here:

      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.
