Scale Daleks

Scale Daleks

Project Dalek also offers information, help and support for those who wish to build smaller scale Dalek models, either from scratch or by using commercially available kits. While our Dalek plans have their measurements at full size, it is a fairly easy task to divide the dimensions in order to use them to create some really great scale models. Some of the best scale builds are showcased in the Scale Dalek section, here on the main website.

Model Daleks, Often mistaken for full size versions.


The Project Dalek Forum has a section dedicated to scale model Daleks, where members can post their progress and receive help, support and encouragement.

A great size for a scale Dalek is a scale that produces a model which is roughly two feet tall. This is an ideal size for using table tennis (ping pong) balls for making the fifty-six hemispheres... something which can often be problematic.

If you're building a commercially available kit, like those produced by Airfix, Comet or the now quite rare and collectable Sevans Models 5th scale or 3rd scale Dalek kits, then please do share your efforts with us. We'll do our best to help if you get stuck.

Recently, members have started building scale Daleks using 3D printed parts that they have produced themselves using their own printers.  Sometimes the parts have been designed from scratch and sometimes they have been downloaded from the 3D printer files section, on the Forum. Either way, we love to see these creations taking shape and actively encourage members to submit their own 3D printer parts to the downloads section, for other members to use.
