The only difference is the photo blow up roundels. I was watching the scene in VLC when I put it together. Pretty sure they're angled, but happy to be persuaded otherwise.  :)

One thing I spotted on the episode that I didn't duplicate, is the floor looks very different from the standard blue. I wondered if they had just wheeled the set in and reused the floor from one of the other sets.

The extra flattage I put in behind the doors is definitely there, you can see it behind Dodo when she comes out in her "fab" new outfit. :D

The only thing I really wasn't sure about is the spacing/ exact wall angles.

I do indeed seem to have missed it. I do have it on my sheet, but forgot to copy and paste it.
Here is my "The Bomb" interior, it seems different from yours.

Quote from: Rassilons Rod on Jul 16, 2024, 06:28 pmI noticed that Episode 4 of The Ark  (The Bomb) was missing. This is the layout from that episode.

I haven't finished building the skeleton clock yet, that should be on the plinth between the lighting column and the brass syryan candle.

Behind the interior doors is one of those plain flats. Hope this is helpful :)

Have you ever used touprette? Its a wood filler, Ive been renovating box sash windows in recent months and used a fair bit. It does crack especially when its in full sun, but then you can fill the crack with more and that seems to sort things out. Piece of cake to use, you just add a bit of water and mix it up. You can 'sculpt it too. Or even try window putty. Or that stuff Grunthos the flatulent found in his armpit one fine summer morning? Just an idea, and its is cheap. I think.

TARDIS Build Diaries / Re: Volpone's TARDIS build...
Last post by Volpone - Jul 17, 2024, 02:36 am
Sorry, still no pictures.  I make plans in my head.  They don't always work out.  OK, they never work out.  Walking the dog today, it didn't seem miserably hot.  I'd taken all the stuff I had stored in the TARDIS out and attempted to get everything level, true, and square.  Results were...less than optimal. 

There are people here who have levels and squares and calipers and can make this stuff work.  I try to do that and wind up going "well, crap," and just pushing on whichever corner seems like it will get results and then going "CRAPCRAPCRAP" and trying to undo whatever I messed up. 

Then my rational brain does battle with my OCD tendencies.  I know, rationally, I can never get everything squared up until I build a new solid, stable base.  But I look at the slight lean and warp and start monkeying around with shims and leverage and in the end, in brutal humidity, I'm pouring sweat and manage to get things back to almost as good as they were before I decided to "just real quick, try something." 

Then there's materials.  For my Plan, I needed hardware.  So after spending far too long monkeying with things that can't be fixed until I have a stable base reconstructed, I ran off to get some hardware.  I had some scrap material for the base--a couple 10' 4x4s I'd salvaged at the property.  One had a rotted corner and one was badly warped, but this was plenty of material for what I wanted to do, right?  RIGHT?!  This is a problem of TARDIS building that even a relative veteran can still make:  It's easy to forget just how much material is required to build a TARDIS.  I had some other lumber but it was all a few inches too short.  And as it happens, 20' of 4x4 is just about enough to build a new TARDIS base.  So if some of it is badly warped and some of it has insect damage, well I guess you're setting yourself up for disappointment.  Such is life. 

Got base in on 3 sides.  It involved lots of cutting and sweating and measuring and cursing and remeasuring and more cursing and more sweating but I don't completely hate the result.  The ship still has a list and a warp but I have hope that when I'm done I can stabilize it.  I've got to tie in the back part of the base and then tie the superstructure to the base.  I'm hopeful this will fix the list.  I've also got to square up the interior and build--erm, rebuild, the framing that insects ate and try to get things good. 

My TARDIS gets closer and closer to a Met box as the years go by.  Every time I do a tile project, leftover cement board gets screwed to the interior in an effort to fight rot and stabilize things.  Since the first refit I've used premixed store-bought "thinset mortar" to fill gaps and add bevels.  After opening up/discovering rot/flaws during the jacking and leveling project, I think I'll pick up some Portland cement to fill in cracks.  Ultimately I need some more fiberglass materials, but I'm trying to keep the budget down for now.

Looks like the most elaborate and robust arrangement was staged for "Edge of Destruction" and "Brink of Disaster".
