thought i would post pics of my k9. My other hobby is fighting robots (aka robotwars) i own a robot called knightmare which appeared on tv many moons ago  :)

a couple of friends who run the shows own dalek's so thought i would have a k9 to take along.

he's currently in primer and should be painted in the next 2 weeks. he runs on modified 12v cordless drill motors with a sabertooth controller, he is on 12volts.

please note:- i am not trying to make him a exact tv replica, just want to have the finish i want for him.  ;)



Will he have a saw blade come out and cut up his attackers? ;)  Were you on the Robot Wars with Jeremy Clarkson?

just the neck to paint, collar and tail to fit then its on with the electrics.



Wow, he's so dark, he could be The Master's K9. ;)

he looks better in the sun lol, i decided to go for ford graphite grey metallic in the end, like i say i wanted to make him how i wanted him to look, rather than a exact replica.

could be worse could of painted him pink  :D


paintings finished, his collar and tail are on, next i need to sort buttons for control box, fit the drive system, all the electrics for movement of head and stuff.



I rather like this take on the Pooch!  Great color and I really love the shape of the head.  Makes him look tough!  Great Work!


screens fitted, just waiting for bits to arrive from the states then i can finish the control box on top.



Wow, he's brilliant :) Very nice job.

Very cool, you should be proud of such a detailed build.

cheers, he is coming together nicely now. been waiting 2 weeks for the control box buttons to arrive, really want to get these fitted, then externally he is finished.
