They come in two lengths - 284mm and 221mm; two "colours" - opal (white) and clear; and two wattages - 30W and 60W.Three of the opal were used in the original Hartnell column. These were then changed to two clear ones late in the Hartnell era, then the clear bulbs were covered with green gels in the Troughton era - kind of a precursor to the Pertwee column I suppose.Apparently the 60W are supposed to be being outlawed in the UK and Europe, with the 30W to follow shortly - all in the crackdown on incandescent light bulbs. Time to stock up!As to where you can get them? The UK. Pretty much everywhere has them - even Amazon.The end connectors are known as s15, apparently - though they are a bit trickier to find.On a side note - for the Pertwee column there was mention of the black rectangles being reused from the Hartnell column. This might have been possible. I count fifteen in the Pertwee - there were sixteen in the Hartnell. However, they do seem to be a different shape - the Hartnell ones were about 1" x 3.25". Well - that's my estimate, anyway. The Pertwee ones seem in the ratio 1x2. They could easily have been cut down, I guess.

It was fine before, but just wanted to make it look a little more authentic. I've made some minor changes to the top three layers, and added more acrylic rods to the bottom half. It's still not perfect, as I've never seen the real one, but I'm happy with it!Here's some pics...Sorry about the ugg boots in this one! Also, just finished my last coat of enamel on my console panel mould, so will have some pics of that soon, too! Phew...it's all go!!!
