Fan builds remote controlled Dalek!

Re: Fan builds remote controlled Dalek!

Then I can only assume you have not heard of "Project Dalek".

http://www.projectdalek.co.uk/mainsite/

There exist a substantial number of fans who construct Dalek props, some radio controlled, others "piloted". Just as there are groups of hobbyists who construct R2 astro-mechs or Robot model B9 from "Lost in Space". 'Bot building is a fairly popular exercise among genre fans.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Fan builds remote controlled Dalek!

Although I'd love a Dalek, a full size one wouldn't fit down my hallway. So I settled for everyone's favourite tin pooch instead. Here he is with my cat

I've always wanted a Dalek, ever since I was a kid! One day when I'm settled and have a few thousand quid to spare... haha
