    Can't wait to see him when he's done. Awesome work.

    Will he be remote controlled?

    Bah, I've not been on the RPF for ages as I'd forgotten my log in.. if I'd have remembered them a bit earlier I may have been able to help you out- I've just helped out an exhibition with Matt and he had the original prop there.












    I don't know how recent you are aiming for with the look of your replica, but here's Matt pointing out the new rivets on K-9's head, he's got so fed up of the screws being obvious he decided to make it a design feature!



    In addition we had two other K-9's on display, so we took a group shot after the event had finished and we were packing up! The original prop is in the middle!







    I hope these are of use!

    Nice to see those, thanks for posting those real dog shots. Those other model look like they have the fiberglass casts off the original. Its hard to get those bodies, I would love one, someday LOL

    Never noticed the square tubing on the bottom of that one before. Most use the foam rubber pipe insulation, which mine will have.

    Im not going for anything specific era wise, I just want a general K-9, altho his plans are based off the Baker Era K-9. I had to take liberties with his head some, but its not noticeable.












    Ears/ear servo goes on tonight!

    Almost there. I keep thinking Ill have him to paint sooner than I think, but I truly think this week he gets his paint.

    I am really impressed. I am wondering though what material you are using to make him out of. Also could you please clarify for this newby what you mean by "skinned".
    Amazing job so far!

    GeneralFROSTY - thanks man, that means a lot. I have been putting my heart and soul into him. He is being dedicated to a buddy of mine that is perhaps one of the best Doctor Who/David Tennant costumers/look alikes who is in the hospital fighting for his life.

    Stuffj/Aaron - he is made out of mostly 3mil (1/8") styrene with some 1 & 2 mil styrene mixed in.

    "Skinned" simply means after you have built a frame work, then you put a clean layer of thinner plastic or material over that frame to give it a "skin". Look at the photos at the beginning of this thread - you'll see the frame of the robots head, it now has a layer of skin on the outside to cover it all up. Make sense?

    He is all painted and final assembly and the working out of kinks of the remote setup tonight and through the weekend.

    Heres the head with the eyes all blazing, very happy with him at this point. More photos tomorrow.

    98% finished, here he is before adding the monitor/trim, bumpers and the metallic "K 9" to the panel side.

    That is simply amazing! I'm very envious of you now. I've always had a soft spot for this little robot.

    What will you be using for the bumpers and the screen edging? Those two items are always a bain for the K9 builders so I'm told.

    I already have the bumpers, they dont stump me? They are just plumbing pipe insulation tubes. You can get them in foam or foam rubber from your neighborhood big box hardware store. I choose foam rubber.

    The monitor trim will probably be from an automotive store. Its just door or screen trim.

    Styrene? Seriously? Incredible!

    Had no idea you could build props of this size and complexity with it.

    Amazing build. Really spot on.

    Heres two test videos, that is indeed him speaking. The speakers are in his head. Doctor Who playing on the monitor.

    K-9 seems to be about the same size and shape as my Jack Russell Terrorist, Maximillian.
    Is there any provenance as to what dog K-9 is modeled after?

    No, in an interview from the designer of K9 at BBC, when he did the concept sketches he was completely different looking in the first stages. If I recall correctly, that designer moved on to something else and someone different picked up the final design. He was only meant for one episode when orginally conceived.

    As for his size LOL, watch this video, thats my Jack Russell at the end of the video, K9 is twice her size:

    Doctor Who K9 Street test - YouTube

    He is in the back of my Toyota Sequoia, one of the bigger SUVs on the market in the shot above. Dwarves a normal Jack. My Jack is a Parsons Terrier technically, which is a bigger Jack breed.

    My K9 is studio scale, he wasnt small.
