 :) Thanks for the responses every one, unfortunately (sorry to sound ungrateful)the ones in the zip file with individual images arn't from this drawing.  Non of them have the roof from above is not included and the other set are not as finely drafted it's only the one big file that is this whole picture I'm after.

It looks to me like the set in the image are more of a slightly more refined version (possibly a later redraw from the originals).

As a side note I managed to find the GPO's plans that show where the concrete is reinforced which is most helpful.

Thanks for making the new guy feel welcome every one.

Those plans are only a few years old and not 100% accurate in my opinion.

This Sketchup model represents the most accurate (and verified) dimensions anywhere!

I agree about the above plans. I sent Domvar a set of prints I found on Police Box site that's now long defunct. (I deleted the link about 4 years ago it's been that long defunct.) It had actual cross sections and dimensions of Met Police Boxes. I don't know who assembled the above plans, but they are incomplete as well as inaccurate for a Met Box.

How do I get access to it ?

It's not really for the dimensions I wanted to see if there was any detail around how the windows are held into the concrete but if they are new then no chance.

The best plans I have found are the GPO ones as you can see where the re-enforcing is situated.
