Thanks - photos now sorted.

Apparently this was one of 12 kits made. Does anyone know if any of the others still exist?

Quote from: Miss Winters on Apr 15, 2024, 11:54 amThanks. Re the light - what one did you get and would I have to build a circuit? I have *ZERO* ability to do soldering etc!!!

BTW does anyone know why my pictures seem to be greyed out? I made sure they were below the file size limit.

You have to upload the images and then attach them too. It is a bit long winded, but it soon becomes an unconscious act!

No wiring or soldering at all- this is what I use:

now I'm thinking were can I get a digital fore digit LED display, this size, & the circuitry to run it, fully wired all ready. I know absolutely nothing about wiring circuit boards.

The Lamp / Re: Tardis light pulse circuit
Last post by Miss Winters - Apr 15, 2024, 11:51 am
Hi All
You may seen, in the build section, that I've just restored a half-scale TARDIS and have a Fresnel lamp on top. However I really need to find someone who can put together a slow pulse light for me as I have *ZERO* ability to build one myself. I'm asking around but no-one I know has come up with a definitive solution for me. The glass shade has room for some type of bulb maximum dimensions 90mm tall by 55mm wide.

I want to run it off a battery/batteries - and it does not need to be bright. It would be nice if the light was blue if possible. I'm in the UK in the Hertfordshire area. Please can anyone help???

I've completed a custom Arwel Wyn Jones police box prop model build, as seen being worked on in a previous post. Here are pictures featuring it on some random island in some large sea with some supposedly vibrant lighting.

If only that were mine! That's Larry Mitchell's 25" Obsession at the Texas Star Party back in 2009. The Sombrero galaxy through that thing felt like it was 3D, but climbing a 12 foot ladder to get to the eyepiece was no fun for me.
(Saying "Sombrero Galaxy", and being a fan of #11, I think I need to find a galaxy I can start calling the Fez galaxy. Because Fezzes are cool. And there's already a Bowtie nebula, NGC2440)
P.S. Sorry for hijacking thread, feel free to delete this post if I've broken rules.

Thanks @chris_todd. That's a beast of a scope in your profile picture!

Here's a couple of the sign-boxes in glue-up:

Also, hopefully this link goes to a short time-lapse of the roof going on (though it might be the whole TARDIS folder):

Slight issue now: putting the roof on has revealed that, after my earlier snafu with the pillar height and my subsequent workarounds, the opening that the signboxes are supposed to cover turn out to be higher than the signboxes! However, I think I have a workaround for that as well.
