My Dalek-building buddy Dave Duca has been putting in some overtime lately. He’s been preparing enough Daleks for his own “Cult Of Skaro” to appear at the Chicago TARDIS convention later this year.
My Dalek was pulled from the same mo[u]lds as these, and I’m planning on giving it a new paint job and maybe attending myself.
The basic shell is formed from fiberglass with the finer detailed parts made from casting resin pulled from RTV moulds.
I have some upgrades to make to my own Dalek replica before I can take it out and about – I need to replace the scooter base with a full differential drive, and upgrade the dome controller so that it can free rotate under radio control. Check out the Daleks! link to the left for Youtube movies.
