So here’s the set. Built in this order; K9, Tardis, Cyberman head, Dalek. The instructions recommended this order. They said to start with K9 because it was the easiest. What they didn’t say was that the Dalek was- hey, my niece and nephew may read this- let’s say, impossible.

I would like to exterminate this Dalek. I would like to crush it. All these models require no glue- just press out the card pieces and clip them together.Oh, except for the Dalek.

If you buy this kit for anyone, treat it like a UXB. Hand it over and then retreat to some distance. Don’t approach it again until all parts have gone off. Give it as a gift, then run. Leave it to the mums and dads.

Or, be sneaky. Show them how easy it is. Make K9. Hey, make the Tardis. Even have a go at the Cyberman head. Show them it’s do-able. Then run. Fast. Far. And don’t visit again for six months.

Oh, I persevered. I got my brother-in-law to lend a hand. We both struggled. At one point I superglued my fingers together. I know, just press out and clip blah blah blah… like I say, hand over the present and run. Leave the country.

Auntie Claire, you are bad. You are a bad woman hiding back there in the UK. I’ll remember this. You can run but you can’t hide.

    They look very life like – I think you should use your models and shoot a Dr Who episode/comic strip. Btw did you see Obama in the Spiderman cartoon? (PS Issy really likes the Dalek)
