After seeing the first episode of Series 9, I knew I had to build myself a confession dial. I started by taking a high-res photo from the forum's reference thread.

Using the BBC's concept art for the main dimensions I built up the dial from cereal box card. Then, I paper-mach├ęd the prop using textured kitchen roll to give the impression of a Gallifreyan alloy.
The circular Gallifreyan was drawn on with a compass, a ruler and a black ballpoint pen. The two thicker circles were done using a black marker pen.

Kind regards, The14thDr :D

Does anyone know how to spoiler-tag a topic? I'm working on another prop from series 9 but I don't want to create a thread until I know how to "Spoiler" it.

Kind regards, The14thDr :D

It's under "Additional Options" underneath the text box, and below the add pictures section.
In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

I tried that but there was no option to spoiler the topic; only to lock the thread completely. ???

Kind regards, The14thDr :D

Both this one and BioDoctor900's look equally as great. This one looks like it's "pitted brass" that was mentioned in the concept art notes. Partially open, whereas BioDoc's is closed. (Be careful, 14th; someone might find out what you've confessed! ;))
