The best Dalek I've seen was one built by a member of the SF Modeller's Club in Auckland many years ago.
The operator sat inside it and it had a voice-changer circuit to do the "Exterminate!"s authentically, as well as a xenon flash-tube in the gun bit, complete with sound-effects.

A nice touch was that the high voltage for the flash-tube could be diverted to the metal of the frame to give a shock to stickybeak kids who were trying to see inside, even if that meant breaking it!
You'd never get away without a lawsuit these days, but I don't think any parents believed it when their brats came crying about the Dalek having 'bitten' them!


They had a great R2D2 as well, which was radio controlled and had a microphone in it feeding back to the operator. The guy who built it was brilliant at hiding the controller and sitting very nonchalantly nearby, interacting with the onlookers.

I had a hand in the Starship Enterprise bridge, which was used at conventions and for games, and had working computers and such.
David Gerrold (who wrote the famous Trouble with Tribbles episode of Star Trek) played with it at a con and said it was _much_ better built than the original set at Paramount!
