Being a fan of the TV series 'Dr. Who', and having access to dimensioned drawings of the Daleks, I decided as an exercise to produce my own version. There are meshes available on the web, but some are not very accurate.
Having built the model, I had to set it in a scene! The version above is one of my later attempts, and was also an experiment with trueSpace4's volumetric lighting. It is part of a planned 4 minute animation which is on the back burner at the moment.
