That's the main reason why the walls moved from story to story (and sometimes from episode to episode - that Architectural Reconfiguration System not withstanding).As for the walls themselves, from Season 15 on, the roundels were shallower, more like the way you have then on the main doors wall (same style of roundels as on that wall, only lighted, and not recessed as far as your current other-wall roundels). Other than those suggested alterations to the roundels, you're pretty well within the ball park. With the walls moving position based on need, you don't have to worry about taking any "artistic license" with how you position them; the BBC did it, so you can do it as well.Dino.

Quote from: d33j r093r5 on Aug 15, 2015, 09:29 amIt didn't occur to me that that was why they were fluted, but I'm not sure it would have. I spent a while staring at those flutes in close-ups to try and get the profiling right, and too be honest, in retrospect they looked a bit flimsy, often enough there were flutes damaged and/or missing. But it makes sense now that you say it!

From "The Invisible Enemy" onwards I believe, they used the same template as was used for the wood-panelled secondary console room, which were much smaller at 19.5" than the original 25" roundels that lasted until then.

It doesn't seem to apply diagonally anymore, instead being (again roughly) 24" horizontally between vertical centres...!

I quickly picked one and decided that would be the one I made, hang it all if it's not 100% accurate:
