There is a lot of stuff to do.....


Well, so far you're doing it quite well. In some of those later photos, if you removed the Capaldi figure, console, and a few other "scalable" items to take the photos, one could almost think this was a full-scale build going on in someone's large workshop. (My brother-in-law has such a workshop - definitely large enough to fit a full Brachacki console room in it, complete with Canopy. So it can be done.)

I don't remember seeing it mention in your diary so far, but have you figured out how you're going to tackle the roundels yet? Bucket-style, or the later flat, frosted perspex-style?

Hopefully Both.  ;D
I want to be able to re-create the layout of all the stories. So I may have to swap out the bucket style for frosted plastic depending on the images I need.
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

Visiting Tony's article http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=4825.msg55109#msg55109 we see a render of the photographic blowup wallpaper by Thomas Doran.

I had a roll of wrapping paper printed up at Spoonflower.
Cut the image out and used some spray adhesive on some Masonite.

I think the three walls came out pretty good.

I uploaded it. I don't own the image Thomas Doran made so I can't offer it for sale without his permission. But anyone can join Spoonflower and have custom Giftwrap / fabric / wallpaper made.

It looks like it would take some work to make this a repeating pattern.

This is looking great. I can never tell if the printed roundels protrude or are inset, like those pictures - is it a vase or two faces etc.

Just reading through some old threads picked at random and thought I'd post as I have since answered my own question...

It depends which way up they are mounted in the particular story. With the primary light source being above...

Shadow underneath the roundel = protruding roundel
Light underneath the roundel = inset roundel

My initial confusion was because they aren't always mounted the same way up and all I'd really noticed is that sometimes they seem to be intended to stick out and other times not but I hadn't properly looked at them at the time of wondering.
