Putter Putter Putter by Librarian-bot Putter Putter Putter by Librarian-bot
Hello everyone. Sorry for the delay in uploading something new - this was actually supposed to go up on Friday but I sort of got distracted by building a walking house out of Lego and completely forgot.

I have been meaning to build a proper Dalek hoverbout for a while. And in this case at least, I do mean hoverbout, not trans-solar disc. This is supposed to be the first iteration of the device, so I've tried to tailor it to be as close to the first appearance in TV21's Dalek Chronicles, while adding in things like air-breathing vents to suggest something a little more primitive than the later, interstellar versions.

I'm pretty happy with how it's come out - hopefully it will lead to a series of matching accessories for my various Dalek models. I do plan on doing 'Empire' and 'Expansion' versions, as those have both appeared (for definite) in various spin-off fiction.

Daleks belong to the Terry Nation estate, not quite sure who owns hoverbouts....

Dalek Drone 1: FOR THE EMPEROR'S SAKE, WHY CAN'T THIS HOVERBOUT START?
Dalek Drone 2: YOU NEED TO KEEP CRANKING IT AND CURSING. ACTUALLY, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE LAST ON-
Dalek Drone 1: *cursing every 0.2 seconds while cranking*
*hoverbout starts and floats away into the sky
Dalek Drone 1: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUU-
Dalek Drone 2: SHUT UP AND WALK TO WORK, YOU FAT TWAT.

Cool! It would be great to see this model here in full 3d - you could upload it to Sketchfab, and then embed it in full 3D in your journal here on DA: sketchfab-3d.deviantart.com/jo….

Fantastic.
I think David Whitaker came up with the majority of 'The Dalek Chronicles' (the name of the collection of those TV 21 Dalek comics).
I really wish these or the transsolar discs made an appearance in the new series. The new Daleks are pretty ungainly to be flying around maybe they need something like a hoverbout to help them around.

Thanks - and yeah, we owe a heck of a lot of Dalek lore to David Whitaker.

And I think trans-solar discs *have*, very briefly, shown up already - kinda. In the mass crowd scenes in 'The Stolen Earth', I've always thought I've seen some sort of 'forklift truck' in the style of a hoverbout.

Of course I may be imagining that....

I just wish the BBC would dump all the new daleks and do a story with the old daleks. I mean, why not? I don't like the daleks of today having shields, the ability to fly... the methods of defeating them get less credible to more the daleks themselves become less credible.

Very nice artwork by the way, I really love your style!

Absolutely! But it will take a while, I'm afraid - I don't have a camera (or the house!) with me.
