Quote from: volpone on Feb 23, 2013, 07:16 pmAny time you're seeing the TARDIS on its side--particularly during the Davison episodes, it is almost certainly the redressed Newbery box. Why? The fiberglass box was more fragile and not designed to be assembled on its side--particularly with actors climbing on and around it. Now I will defer to your source, depending on his credibility--I mean if he was actually on the prop crew for the show his claims hold a lot more weight--but logically, from everything written about the boxes, that should be the Newbery box--especially if they are using the Newbery door signs on it.

Quote from: rassilonsrod on Mar 01, 2013, 12:26 pmAlso of note, is that on the side that is visible, the far right hammered glass window pane (in the Timeflight photo, with the prop on it's back, it is top right).On the Newbery box, there was a corner knocked off it at some stage (perhaps as early as The Invasion Of Time, I can't recall right now. Also not at home so I can't get screen grabs). This was still evident at least in Logopolis. Interestingly this particular pane does look rather newer than the others in this pic.this isn't in fact what you're seeing at all, although you'd be forgiven for thinking so..., what you see is a smear of black paint from inside the box, when it was painted black. these windows if painted on the back look as if they are painted on the front or as you thought broken, so they never got chipped (very strong and also flexible), just painted accidentally black in places (think of the one on the front) by a rather careless painter,That said, I am in agreement with our friendly neighbourhood time rotor. The signs on the sides are clearly TYJ style. Now one of the TYJ boxes did get some old style signage at some stage (I noted what timerotor said about the front signs in this pic). But I don't think that the Newbery ever got any TYJ signs, so given that the visible signage in this is basically full width (and not more-or-less the same as the width of the windows) that clinches it for me anyway. This is surely one of the TYJ boxes. Thanks for agreeing with me mate :-)Edit: Now I look again, that pic of Peter outside the "Altered Newbery" further up (wow, that's a dark blue) does seem to show a replaced window pane. But I don't think that changes anything
