Good thing you didnt go for the police box idea stefan, kinda mainstream. Fresh concept on using a dalek as a case. Goodluck, will keep on checkin the progress on that cool mod :)

Im actually new to modding and honestly, i dont have a good set up. So i'd just like to ask, since the components would be housed in wood, won't there be a problem with static?

@mark310: haha I actually already built a TARDIS as a casemod. Wood can be a tricky matarial to work with but I am using 1mm and 1,2mm plywood so I dont worry about any stability issues. You just need to some kind of supportive structure.

To achieve more stability, I glued small wooden beams on the side of the mid construction.




Then, I needed to make an inner construction were the top part can rest on.
I cut some plywood into shape and screwed it into place.





For an easier access while working on this part, and so save some weight, I cut away the unnecessary
material. I also added the holes for the watercooling.



Next, I figured out were to put the small water tanks for this section.


I built a mountingsystem for them and attached it to the bottom plate.



I marked the outline for the tubes and added a small wooden box. You will see later for what it will be used ;)



And here is a picture of the water cooling layout in this area.

Thanks all.

Sleep and food are for the weak ;)

To see he inside of the mid section, I needed to cut the glasfibre body in three pieces.



To make them fit together after cutting, I wraped on side in masking tape and used bodyfiller to hide the Cutting line.
That way you will not see a bit gap when this section is closed.




Then, I primed the parts to check if some areas need more sanding or more filler.


While the primer dried, I took the time to paint the doors and the bottom of the base section black.
This will function as another layer of primer. I used dispersion paint because its cheaper than spray paint and
with some care the results are the same.




For some more details on the bottom edge, I drilled holes and installed some bolts.
Then the edges were painted in a silver tone.



And then back to the mid section. For the opening, I used the same mechanism as for the doors.

Thank all for the amazing feedback. Will try to do my best for this mod :)

I am kind of a night person so I dont need that much sleep *lol*


As a next step, I started to work on the little highlight for the mid section.
What makes a Dalek a real Dalek. Sure a Dalek :)
I modeled a rought shape from newspaper and fixed it with masking tape.


Then I tried out the positioning on the inside.



A selfmade eye was also included.


To get everything into shape, I used a very simple and cheap technique. Paper maché.
I applied multiple layers to hide the structure of the newspaper. When it dried the entire
model will be very strong but also light weight.



In the mean time, I started the next section.
First, I cut a round piece of wood and made a template for the structure, that should hold the round wooden beams on the outside
and the acrylic glass pieces on the inside.


Because I did not have wood in the right thickness on hand, I glued two pieces together.



Than it was attached to the round plate. In addition, I cut out the top of the construction and installed
the roound wood beams on the outside. Smaller gaps were filled with wood filler.





I 3d printed small details, that I glued into place.



For a more industrial kind of look, I used some screws.



Next up will be the light system for this part and than I will make the basic structure of the "head"
