Doctor Who thing: fan-made Daleks

I was at the opening night of the exhibit back in November, and I figure it’s time to share some thoughts and images from the exhibit. So I’ll be doing that all this week.
Today: Daleks. These, for instance, are not props from actual production but fan-made replicas:

This Dalek may be part of the furniture at the museum. If you got close enough, Dalek voice demanded a donation toward the museum’s running (since you pay no admission fee to get in). Note the slot for a pound coin or three between the gun and plunger:
