Making A Real Dalek: an assessment by: GF Willmetts (article).

February 6, 2015 | By | Reply More

The nature of this article came about when we were approached by a representative of the Horror Channel asking us for an assessment of how much it would cost to build a real Dalek based on the picture you see above. My first reaction was the cost of the neutron bomb and the necessary radiation to mutate someone into a tentacle would cost far more than their budget.

Worse, they wouldn’t supply me with a neutron bomb to do some research.

It isn’t like I’m asking much. After all, it would only take one neutron bomb to instigate a nuclear holocaust to duplicate the events on Skaro. Anyway, read on and then have a look at their website: www.horrorchannel.co.uk/doctorwho
