They call it the" Planet of the Daleks Dalek ",it is not, i told Alister Dewer this via twitter but he is insistent that it is correct ,no Dalek ever had grey appendages Al,show me the pic prove me wrong please
sculpt to me perfect apparently not so -1 for that the horrible mold line for loose front round the boxes surely no need for this so - 1
color is nice grey finally right shade for grey 70s Daleks after pale and blue greys so great looses a point on appendages and eye stalk housing being black
speech is the let down so..
a nice classic Dalek, to joe blogs will be ,i am sure, spot on just depends on what your wanting ,come a very long way since the original fat 2 scale Bronze Daleks
|Left 70s gunmetal R 70s grey|
the speech is some fan mediocre sadly not a excerpt from the program sadly this lets it down but chance to single own Daleks brilliant
The 5 Drs Dalek,..... oh where to begin with this prop,a Dalek made out of the rejects shelf or bin,but theres a reason for this
Now not being to up on Dalek props i got this info off the web., some bits like dome/ skirt i know already
|Dalek One-7 lord mayors show|
and all manner of BBC bits gun, arm ,neck, slap of emulsion guvnor?
it was a mess tatty with age badly painted and assembled a set of shoulder slats mostly broken,the mesh below top band so shaped like a dogs hind leg, scuffed damaged hemis, and it was also sporting some strange oversize red lights, a really poor showing for the anniversary show and first and only Dalek since 74 to not include Davros
It is hardly surprising the hasty repairs and state of the prop after its mammoth publicity stint and hired out for a nominal fee to all and sundry where it was heavily used abused, from press pictures to joe blogs garden party and supermarket openings etc during the late 70s ,as well as appearing in two stories and end result was a very broken prop
Seen in Pebble Mill to promote Davison in silver and blue then in lord mayors float then on Breakfast time nationwide and other publications photographs and magazines
this prop was used to promote since 81 to feature in 4 stories until 89 (extensively refurbished to match the molded style of all the newer props) and then go on as a exhibition prop until 2009 it
|on location tho not filmed used in studio|
|Dalek 1/7 in filming Remembrance|
|been in this many times never new its history|
so mine,take one of these
So after i finished painting i glossed Hemis to overly gloss BBC style mine have dents and scuffs from factory i have left ala BBC not overly neat more dry brush than actual paint grey sockets for appendages left so overall look is definitive BBC style
Has a look of a mix of parts and hasty repairs going on and the red dome lights (red does help denote evil) using a black pen to add the ring at bottom (Think this denotes Squad leader for Daleks ,orange lights seen before and yellow on the props only one prop the rest usually white )
I really like this now how should of looked on TV pride of place next to its blown up version
|One of my all time fave Dalek styles|
voila transmatting in after a surprise attack "retreat"
