    Hi guys

    As above - mate wants to build a full size Dalek, and I'm wondering if there are any good enough to scale up.

    Thanks in advance

    Hey Paul,

    I surfed one time and found a guy that built a full sized dalek, but I'd be darned if I remember the link. You know how it is with google, there so much stuff you can enter a search the same way twice and get total different hits:oops:

    check it out you might get lucky and find it......................I'm going to try again myself.

    Cheers Bowdenja!

    I found the Dalek Factory patterns, but they're a little low detail for what he's after, and the other more details sites are all fibreglass and mdf :(

    The search continues...

    Use the new series Dalek drawings on the BBC site and scratch build. It can be done in card, just a boat load of it! I thought of doing it also, but I can see the kids and wife using it as a dust bin. The detail segments on the official Dr.Who web site give some great details to work with.

    I can't believe no-one's done a decent paper model of one of these guys :sad:

    Okay, plan B - Anyone know of any good, free Dalek 3D files?

    I came across this model of a Dalek. It's carved from amber.

    However, I also have a really decent 3ds model. PM me a good email address and I'll get it out to you as soon as I can.

    May stay tuned to this....

    Getting a few 3D models of the helpful folks here, so will see what will or will not push through Pepakura with a bit of Tweaking.

    Will probably be looking for a larger scale model than what you seem to be working on, but it's looks like it could be pretty good. Nice job on the head and skirt 'studs' - looks like you've solved two of the trickier parts right there.

    Nice one.

    Its actually 1/12 scale taken from the full size drawings. So if you've got a printer 12 times bigger than normal your away.

    You've probably been given this one (3ds).. Its nicely detailed, so just in case..
    Sorry I don't know the original creators name..

    Nice one Toaster - seen this site before, but mdf and fibreglass are out of my league - great wealth or reference material though.

    Cheers Bill, it's just the level of detail will need to increase if I'ts going to be supersized :(


    Cheers Gears!! Will def. check this out

    Hey Bill - any chance of you releasing your creation some time soon?

    Was going to attempt a big-boy verion from some 3D models, but it was just going to take WAY too much work, which I just ain't going to have the time for (the 3D models are a long way from Pepakura-ready).

    As it stands, you'rs is definitely the best of the bunch.

    Best regards

    There are excellent plans available over at ProjectDalek:


    It just needs a proper Doctor Who fan to give it the loving attention it needs...

    kinda off topic, BUT, I'd like to scale up a K9! That would be WAY cool!
