Here's a very simple build that was way more satisfying than I would have thought. It started as a one day build, but of course took several. A big inspiration was watching the asavage tested.com styrene plate kitbash video. Previously, I had only used it as a material to modify off-the-shelf kits. Well, I loved it and can't wait to build more with it.
Here's the build diary:

I saw the 1988 music video for Doctorin' The TARDIS by the band KLF on youtube. Just as I was thinking that the fake "Dalek" in the video might be a fun build, my girlfriend said "Oh! You should make that Dalek for your collection". Well, at that point, you just have to, right? So, I attempted to translate this prop into a 1:8th scale model with stuff I had around the house. As one does during lockdowns.

I started with Styrene plate.

The only parts I bought specifically for the build were the spheres. Which were half-dome beads spray painted with marking fluid.

The dome was half of a gatchapon capsule. Other bits were just odds and ends from my scrap parts bin.

I'm fairly happy with how it turned out. But more than the model itself, I'm excited by the possibilities of other styrene kitbashed projects I want to attempt.
Thanks for checking it out.

Love this! An inspired choice of subject that I don’t think I’ve seen done as a model before. Really nicely done too - the dome and the metal tape look great. I enjoyed that Adam Savage video, but haven’t had the courage to have a go at scratch building yet. I’ve been spoiled by Bandai kits that go together easily with no modification needed, but you’ve inspired me to give scratch building a go.

Hahahah oh man, This brings me so much joy. I remember seeing this video as a kid and thinking, "what the hell am I watching?". You've done a fantastic job
