Scale Daleks

In situations where building a full size Dalek in impractical for reasons of storage etc, members often take the plans and scale them down to produce wonderful Dalek models.

This page features some of the model Daleks from the Project Dalek Forum's 'Scale Daleks' section. Some of the featured builds are adapted versions of commercially available model kits, such as the Sevans 12" Dalek kit and the larger Sevans 3rd scale Movie Dalek kit. Others are completely scratch built...


Dan L's Comet Miniatures Dalek

DanL's Comet Dalek

Dan says...

"I just remembered that I had built a commet models Dalek many years ago, & thought it was in the loft. After a good hunt here he is, still in one piece, a little dusty & paint going a tad yellow, but he's now got pride of place next to my monitor, to give me some inspiration. Also to keep an evil eye on me! Hope you like him".


Thalspy's 'Mini Genie'

Thalspy's mini Genie

Mini Genie was the original inspiration behind Grant's full size Dalek build, featured in the Showcase section. Mini Genie was originally a standard Product Enterprises 12" remote control Dalek, before being stripped down and heavily modified, including 360 dome rotation! Full details of this customization are available in the 'Mini Genie' topic, on the Forum.


Stan's Dalek

Stan's scale Dalek

This is a half size Dalek which is motorized. Stan made his own PCBs to control the Dalek. Having made other models, Stan made certain he had easy access to everything inside the Dalek. The overall the cost was $600. (included several one off costs like the PCBs, that could be used in many projects). See more of Stan's Dalek here.


Adrian's (Adrwis1's) Dalek

Adrian's scale build

Adrian says, "This was my first attempt at building a Dalek scaled down from the full sized plans. It was built from balsa wood and plasticard, with a GRP dome (2nd attempt).The dome lights are plastic paint pots found in several recent Airfix starter boxes. No electrics in this one, I might eventually get around to motorizing a later version (Movie or Invasion Earth Dalek) as they have a larger base to hide r/c vehicles under".


Chris Kingbees' original Sevans Daleks

Chris' three Sevans Daleks

Chris says, "I was rummaging through an old box of photos, when I came upon these. The Destiny and 60's generic were pre-ordered when they first appeared, advertised in DWM.
The Revelation was slightly later, though still with the original gun design, I added the extra neck bin section and modified base myself for authenticity. All three of these are still in existence, but they have to share two plungers between them". Click the photo to see all three Daleks.


Don Lovelock's Scale Hovabout

Don Lovelock's scratch built Dalek hovabout

Not a Dalek but an unusual Dalek accessory...

Seen here being 'piloted' by a Product Enterprises 6" Dalek is Don's amazing scratch built Dalek Hovabout, also known as a 'transolar disc'. The process of putting this item together is covered in detail, on the Forum, in Don's step-by-step build diary. Well worth a read!


Gunter7's all metal Dalek

All metal Dalek

Gunter's Dalek is approx 250mm high. The base plate is aluminum, machined to profile of the skirt. The skirt is made from stainless steel sheet with tig welded panels. The hemispheres are made from brass turned on a lathe then polished. The shoulders are made from aluminum and the slats are made from brass, machined with a slitting saw on the mill, then polished and screwed onto the shoulders. More details on the Forum!


Jay Owen's Daleks

Sevans 3rd scale Daleks

Jay recently refurbished his Sevans 2ft Movie Dalek, which inspire him to give his Sevans TV kits the same treatment. The theme for this refurbishment was 'Day Of The Daleks'. As you can see, the three Daleks from that story have been recreated in exact detail. Particular attention has been paid to the colour schemes, which look absolutely perfect, when compared to photographs of the original props.
