    Hi there. The Dalek picture is at *least* from 1992, when the Imperial props went onto display and the dome lights were replaced with traditional beehive style ones.

    The Imperial props were build in 1988 for “Remembrance of the Daleks”, so excusing the light change and prop damage is can’t be from earlier than that.
