In the movie, McGann pushes open both doors before the cutaway to the deeper shot of both doors open from the front...

I'm sorry about the spaced updates, i know i'm near completion to that box but i haven't find much time to spare to work on my tardie.

C'est la vie!

No need to apologise. We all know life is a *insert insult of choice* who likes to get in the way and prevent you from working in what you want to do.

Oh my giddy aunt!!

Well... I've actually progrèssed a bit, the doors are not yet hinged, but soon i guess. Paint will also be a a yhing to come, how ever, currently, the weather doesn't allow me to do it in the best way. I'll also need to go fined and fit the light fixtures (i'm imaginating a système for making the inside of the box pitch blanc while still having the windows lighted yup). I also need to work and the floor on wich i can' t find any refrence matérial.
Any way, here are the picturesIMG_20210114_022730_176.jpgIMG_20210114_022727_558.jpgIMG_20210114_022725_630.jpg

It looks fantastic! I've just made a 3d model and am thinking about building a 1:5 model you've really captured the essence and textures of the box

No, not the mind probe!

Good news, things went well today, i've hinged and finished the door, i also fited the windows (photos later), blocked out the light siping out betwin the pannels, posts and base; and i'm now ready for paint exept for the phone pannel. I also need to found if there is a lock on the left door inside bottom (i've made the top one, but i'm note sure there is one down simetricaly... And if there is, i need it to be fonctionnal, not like the one on the top where you can juste pull the little tab)

Paint is done, nothing much to say. I'm extremly happy about the color. It looks a bit akward irl, a bit of with day light, but un the dark it's spot on i think. Next on my todo list is the windows, inside black cards and light effects. Maybe a bit of weathering, looking at the pictures, i see a bit of grinm on the bottom base. I also need to go back to the printing shop for the graphics. Oh and the lamp to.

And here a more pictures of today's progrès i'm weathered a bit the basse. It's very light. I tried to simulate the drie stuff left after rain on the bottom of the box, i'm happy with that. IMG_20210118_034646_895.jpg

Also here are my prototypes for the hammered look, i tied a couple before finding the right oneIMG_20210118_034654_888.jpgIMG_20210118_034653_311.jpgIMG_20210118_034651_442.jpgIMG_20210118_034649_044.jpgIMG_20210118_034650_643.jpg

Interesting! I'm mostly unhappy with the current blue of my TARDIS because it looks too light to me, but your daylight pics are about the shade mine is.  I'd still like mine to be darker but at least I've got validation from someone with a good eye for detail that my color is actually fairly accurate.

@Volpone i went and look, it's a cool tardis you got^^ maybe it's something more desaturated that you might be looking for instead of darker. a bit of both maybe. the color you've got right now is very shiny and saturated, kinda like the original met box  were (or at least most of the one left and restored are now).tardis blue saturated.png

So, i've got my prints done right and i bought lights. I have quite à few spare to go for the incoming projets, wich shall be the series 5box (because for some reasons it grew à lot on me the past year) and à sylvestre Mccoy style box (may be my favourit classic doctor, i don't know, i'm a believe that no doctor so far as been à miss cast, not 6th nor 13th (wich i quite realy like, even tho i  don't like the stores she's mostly been given... Anyway X) ))
I'm fiting the light i the roof to check out if i go for cold white(wich i believe was the hue on the original) or warm(like the other litted tardie) so far, i think i'll go for cold, but i'm curious to see what you think. I'll try to installé the correct blue graphics on and then i'll call it done i think. Couplé of out door shots and scènes and the may be i'll keep it, or may be i'll try to put it on eBay or some thing. I don't know what it's worth but i could use some money right now.

Anyway, here are some pictures :

IMG_20210120_221325_701.jpgIMG_20210120_221323_794.jpg irl those lights are white, but in pictures they look bluish. color grading my pictures like the movie was shall make the light back to white and the paint job apear à darker more purple color. Wich was what i look for.
