Still a work in progr├Ęs. The lamp got me stuck tbh. I don't know how to make it look good. IMG_20201028_021306_407.jpgIMG_20201028_021304_871.jpgIMG_20201028_021300_454.jpgIMG_20201028_021256_193.jpgIMG_20201028_021253_975.jpgIMG_20201028_021252_644.jpgIMG_20201028_021252_644.jpg

Hi Alex.

You are a great model maker & your TARDISes look amazing.

FYI:  When you attach your photos you need to attach them 1st, then insert them so they come out clearly rather than as "ghost" images.

Hope that helps, as I'd love to see more!!

Cheer,

Russell

Hey. It's finished !!...ok i have to clear coat it (mat) and i can't right because of the weather. I can't go shoot outside because we got locked down again... And terrorism rised to, so dervailance.......

Anyway, i'm super happy with it. I know it's an un populare box, but exept the lamp, it's one that i quite like.

I tried some shots in the darkwith my drill's battry charger and my A-1-2 tardis.

EnjoyIMG_20201029_200525_440.jpgIMG_20201029_200522_547.jpgIMG_20201029_200524_070.jpgIMG_20201029_200520_720.jpgIMG_20201029_200519_202.jpgIMG_20201029_200515_932.jpgIMG_20201029_200514_395.jpgIMG_20201029_200511_213.jpgIMG_20201029_200507_662.jpgIMG_20201028_233159_733.jpg

Very nice.  The opening windows with all the tiny hardware really floored me, but the whole thing is great.

I'll have to concider the interior at some point too. I'll see in a few weeks if printing shops reopens.
Thx

Ho ! I think i might do more boxes in the future. I was thinking NSDW series 5 box. My favourit box still is the 9th doctor's ones but i gotta say 11th's thiker postes and base clean looking box looks amazing. I realy like the lamp and dark Windows. What do you think ?
Any other suggestions or favourits you might want to see ?

Ho, good one. I juste don't i know enought about it yet. So far i know there were a sfx model, a full prop cabine and a stunt one for the moto scene. But it's one i quite like too.

New lock down pic. I found some red leds in a cuboard. IMG_20201103_022435_045.jpg

Little update. I quickly painted the concret floor and tried to stop the light sipping troungh some of the panel joins and trought the roof dgrs with the posts and the police sighs. Not perfect yet, but it's going well and i think my nocturnal photos will benefit from it (the original props sufer from it anyway, especialy around the doors)
While i was at it, i took some pictures of it dismenteled to show how much pieces there are and how serviciable it is. I've thrown mat smith's character options's electronic tardis next to it ti show up the size a bit.

I hope you'll enjoy

I think the windows lit up pictures are quite funny, its basically the same image with different labels ;)

Lovely colouring on the box, good job.
Kind Regards,

David

It's just a turn agound to see what's left to do. You can tell kf you sqwint at the police signs but it's nit pick for sure X)

About the color, i'm pleased to read that. The pick was hard. I tryed too look for a paint that would look alike even weathered and through the camera lens.
Here is my refrence and how it look in person (mind i did quite a lot of litle touch up to simulate the studio and location used and refurb effect)IMG_20201112_222535_852.jpgIMG_20201112_222406_527.jpgIMG_20201112_223056_469.jpg
