Mission Statement

 

We like Daleks, here at Project Dalek. We like them a lot. We want more Daleks in this world. We don't really care what size they are - scale models or full-size Daleks. We don't care if they are 'real' or CG renders. So long as they are Daleks we are happy.

Are you ready to take the plunge and create a Dalek of your very own? If so, Project Dalek is the place for you. Project Dalek is the home of the 'Dalek Builder's Workshop Manual', the Dalek builder's bible. It contains everything you need to know about how to construct a full size Dalek of your very own.

We also have Dalek plans for every major Dalek variant. These are free to download, once you have become part of the Project.

 


There's also plenty more to discover, including...

  • The Dalek Reference Library- an extensive collection of photographs covering all Dalek types.

  • The Project Dalek Members Showcase- featuring our members Daleks, gives a behind-the-scenes insight into how their Daleks were built.

  • The Project Dalek Forum- the core resource within Project Dalek, where members meet and exchange Dalek-building information. 'PDF' is also where members can find the essential Dalek plans.

Remember, at Project Dalek, we are 'hardcore' Dalek builders. We don't 'do' general Doctor Who topics and we don't 'do' Dalek fiction. For us, it's the actual Dalek props that matter.

If this is the first time you've ever thought about building a Dalek, then you've come to the right place. Many members have had the dream of building their very own Dalek prop since they were children. We are here to help you realise that dream. Building a full size Dalek may seem like a daunting task, but by breaking it down into sections and being methodical, it is possible for most people with basic DIY skills to build a really impressive and convincing Dalek replica. 

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.

You don't have to build Daleks in the real world to be part of Project Dalek. Many of our members build their Daleks virtually, as computer models which are then placed in various virtual environments to create dramatic scenes. The computer models they use are often built using the standard plans as reference. However, some of our members like to experiment and branch out, modifying the plans designs, creating Dalek variations of their own.
