scale modeling database | stash manager

I present the Dalek who failed the auditions. The original concept.

When one of our own goes to the great stash in the sky, it's fitting to honour their memory with a tribute build. A group build which is devoted to the things which the fallen modeller used to enjoy building. So, on All Scale Modeller, that's just what we did.

Nigel Heath was a British modeller who loved Luft-46, sci-fi, helicopters and had a particular love for Daleks. In every build he included a fire extinguisher and his build reports always reported the food he was eating that day.

He will be sadly missed.


Be afraid… be very afraid!
This could have been the Dr Who creature that makes us all say “Bloody hell, the sodding Dalek's again! Weren't they killed off for good in the last series?”.

Damnit he looks soooooo friendly. 🙂

In keeping with Nigel, I tried to make the build report very, very silly. If you're interested in wasting some time...

Another bloody hilarious installment from the Gorby stable, sobering circumstances notwithstanding. Nigel is no doubt clapping from his little corner of the Great Stash in the Sky 👍

I'm not sure "Extinguish" would have had quite the same impact as "Exterminate"!
