Nice mods and SUPER nice Dalek (which is pronounced "doll-ek" by the way
I still want to get your template for that aluminum plate behind the targets, although I'll probably make it in stainless coz that's what I do Thanks for the show!

#3 6 years ago

Very cool! Thanks for posting.

#4 6 years ago

Nice...

What did you use to get the red leds on the Dalek body to strobe?

The call box mod, looks so much nicer.

Thanks for sharing

The chase LED's are a universal kit (see link below). I added an adjustable time delay relay to keep them actively lit during the Dalek modes. I tapped into the original Dalek blinking light circuit to activated it and although I didnt try it without the relay... I felt it would flicker too much due to only activating with the actual original light pulses when the Dalek speaks.

Be forewarned....installing and wiring the LEDs was super tedious work!!!

Dang Cliffy.... I wish I would have know you wanted the templet. I just had that thing apart tracking down an opto problem!! As you know, no Dr. Who owners want to take that damn time expander apart if they dont have too (lol). Marco has the base plastic and this was what I used exclusively!! took me a while too but I know you can hook it right up!! As far as "doll-ek" ill try but I'm a good ole' Georgia native and sometimes that drawlllll just takes over!! lmao

You will have to gut it, discard the base, & replace the led with a 12 volt 3mm led. You may have to get a little creative with the mounting but its not that difficult. Looks a ton better in person!!

I had to sand a re-shoot it like 4 times but I finally got it right!! Thanks Fattrain

Fantastic job, rgb! That's without a doubt the nicest DW I have ever seen. The only problem I have with your mods is that the Slitheen ships are from the wrong era. Those are from the new 2005 relaunch, whereas the game is based on the original series which ran from 1963-1989. Nevertheless, they still look cool, and only a sci-fi geek like me would even notice that they are out of place.

Gweempose you wont believe how hard I had to search for some replacements for those little black ships. After a few weeks I was about to give up and then I stumbled on this little web site for a store in the UK. Those were the only ones from the Dr. Who series I could find that would fit without looking crazy. I didn't want to go away from the theme with some Star wars ships or something (lol). I haven't even seen the episodes that have these ships but now I can track it down now that I know which series they are from. Thanks for the compliments and the info. I am trying to learn more about the Dr. Who series now that I have the game.

Since you’re new to the show might I recommend you start with the newest series and stay away from the classic stuff until you’ve become a fan. Good starting episodes that I recommend are: Dalek, The Empty Child/Doctor Dances, Girl in the Fireplace, Blink, Utopia, Midnight, Vincent and the Doctor, & The God Complex. Great episodes for someone who doesn’t know much about the show and wants to dive in to the longest running sci/fi show in history. Also if you’re looking for a good podcast for the show I would recommend the TARDIS Tavern...

#19 6 years ago

How dare you recommend anyone stay away from Tom Baker. I'm going to have to come over there and beat you now, and take that pin over to my place. :p

#20 6 years ago

Loved it all! Thanks for the vid.

Miss my DW.

#21 6 years ago

Excellent work, very inspiring for someone about to do a teardown shopjob of his DW. Can't wait to get started! Your game looks awesome!

#22 6 years ago

Really cool. Can you detail how you integrated the shaker? Similar steps could be used in other games. Like what you wired specifically ?

#23 6 years ago

Wow, looks great

#24 6 years ago

Awesome job! From an ATL native.

#25 6 years ago

That is awsome!! Perfect timing, Im rebuilding a dr who right now, I cant wait to do some of these!

#26 6 years ago

Thanks everyone I really appreciate the positive responses

Awesome work with the Super Dalek and the shaker. looks great.

LED's in the GI huh. I've seen those before... everytime you collect a doctor through the Transmat it gives you a seizure.

#31 5 years ago

nice to see titles people don't usually like that much get some love! way to go!

#32 5 years ago

Looks really good, some mods are like ahhh but these I would add to a Dr Who which is on my list to get.

#33 5 years ago

Did you have to add any extra screws to make the kickout protectors from High Speed work? Or did it work with the existing hardware?

No extra screws...the mounting holes on the protectors are off just a bit on one side or the other. I just power drilled through it when reattaching the hole deflectors and it was snug as a bug!!

#35 5 years ago

the video is crappy

but even that, we can see you have a very nice pin, with cool mods !

#36 5 years ago

Yea the video actually looks better when NOT in full screen. I didnt have the HD setting correct in my smart phone.

#38 5 years ago

Getting a DW in a week or so if everything lines up, and it is looking good, would love to see your mods in person some time if it is possible as I'm in Atlanta usually once a month or so. Excellent stuff and thanks for all the info. The Tardis on the one I'm looking at is broke and the USB tardis looks perfect.
