[Whistles] Nice custom. Steep price tag, though.

Wow. How on earth do you think they made it?

I mean, I know it says, "carved from styrene plastic," but it's so regular and precise there's no way it was done by hand.

I can believe that's hand made, styrene is pretty good to work with and there are some very talented people out there.

Possibly... But how do you carve the spheres on the skirt? Down to the rims on the edge of them, even.

I suspect they were done in a different way.

EDIT: Yeah the description says they were from an airfix dalek.

I say we all pool our money, buy it, have it 3-D scanned, and then print our own! :)
