Sorry for the redondance of the shooting place. Coronavirus mesures forces us to keep home as much as we can. So i can't really plan photo shoots with à drone in the hills or quaries

I final took some time to try and simulate à wood stain effect with métal flakes and some acrylics and vernis. I'm happy with that. Also i've painted the walls inside Black. I'll still have some carding to do if i want it acurate, that and that lampe i haven't touched yet either

Hey there, update on the tardis, i finished the floor and weathered it. Now it looks à bit more used, maybe à bit to much... Idk. Also i finaly made à proper mount for the lights(wich was something i've kinda forgot to plan and it shows i think, i'll do better on the next tardie... Wink wink) also i still need to make a apropriate sized fresnel le se, for now i've remade my place holder lamp, but better X)

Little pointless update i guess X) i still need some back card and that lamp but i guess i can call it done ?
I can't really go shooting with it for the time being, wich is really annoying. But hope fully soon

These photos give me a wild sense of deja vu.  Because around a decade ago we had a builder who did multiple TARDISes that were technically excellent and the photos he took were excellent too.  I thought it was Zbigniev*, but it looks like he only did the altered Barachaki.  Yes, his work is very similar, but I'm sure there was someone who had multiple TARDISes, lined up in neat forced perspective miniature shots like this. 

*I'd link to some of his stuff, but I'm told some threads disappear when they reach a certain age and only my Mod powers let me get to them.  Although that was the old board, so maybe now anyone can find them.  If so, just do a search for Zbigniev to see his build.

Thx for the tip. The guy does awsome stuff,i'm happy you're comparing my model to his X)
I'll have to do some photo editing like him to at some point. I'm procrastinating on that, but it could be à problème solver on the lock down situation.

Little containment breach to shoot in the quarie with 13th and 8th tardie.
First, update to the model, i've find some Black back card. That will do the job for now.

And i burn my self trying to those crapy shot so they have to get here

I have no idea why i did that either...
And finally, here are à couple of shots from the dirt pile some few dozen km of my house. I haven't tried to color grade them to look acurate to the movie, because i don't think the day shots of the tardis looks that good to be honnest. So i did my thing mostly, it's quite more on the moderne style of shooting and natural lighting and grading.

I hope you'll enjoy^^

Hey guys, i'm playing around with lighting, wich do you think looks more like the tv movie ?
I don't know for sure what was inside the full size screen used prop(i imagine halogène bulbs) but trying to find the correct hue fore my leds is à bit of a struggle. So far i'm running on cold white for that neon look (wich usualy appears either blue (like the delorean flux band in BTTF) greenish or pink-orangeish)

Original (currently in the box)

Warm white (currently on the A/B and J prop i've made)

À mix i've tried for a whiter apparence on film and photos

I quite like the bluish lighting, its how I imagine the lighting in that box to be and it reminds me of some of the publicity photos. Although the slightly warmer colour also looks nice!

i do think that's the clossest i'll get to the halogene bulbs and neon i suspect the box had. i wish it would be a bit whiter, but i needed your guys advices. my goal is screen accuratie rather then personnal liking.

You could try using a blue sharpie on a white LED. I used orange sharpie on a war doctors Tardis and it did a good job at giving it a bit of colour, I imagine it would be the same with blue.

It was White i was trying to achived, i have warm (white light, orange halo) and cold white(White ligth, blue halo). I was trying to get ride of the blue halo i currently have for a whitter approche.
