I feel I have to build a Dalek

While I was digging for some inspiration for a new 3d model I happened across the Accurate Dalek Model by user Audrey2.

Accurate Dalek

This brings back memories of being terrified as a kid by these fantastic things - and I feel the urge to build one.

I've worked out that I can scale to 200% - the largest footprint are the two base parts - and 200% just fits on the build plate.

So - to do this it's going to take a fair bit of printing, a lot of priming and sanding and then painting.

  • Can I add some LEDs to get the eye light and the ears to flash?
  • Can I add sound?

Let's see where this goes.

Stay tuned ...

A first test of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracker head. This shot is made up of 10 shots - each 2 mins at f/2,8 ISO 100 14mm. Merged using Starry Landscape Tracker then adjusted in PS (merged in one shorter exposure at the bottom to get a a sharper land silhouette. You can see that even out of town - still struggling with light pollution - far too much light in the sky. But - still fun to play with.

Introduction between a norweigan fjord horse and a halfling to see if they could share a paddock. The introduction went well - they now keep each other company in the paddock every day
