So, i have a potential oportunty to travel to the us around auguste. I'm going there light, à bad +l'usage, so i can't realy safely take one of my replicas. At least not the current one. So i'm thinking of making à tardis that would be like how most of the props where made. I don't really know if it will turn out good at this scale, but i'll try and see. If it fails, it will either be à série 4 tardis like my other boxes, if i mess up that much, i guess i'll converti it into à war doctor tardis.

I still have not much idea of what i'll be making and how, so if you have any advice, they are welcome.

Chers

So, i'm thinking i should start to work on how many and what pièces i want to be dismentable. (i'm also concidering making à bigger scale model)
I want it to be flat so i'm thinking 3 side panel with the sign boxes attached (or not) 4 corner posts, 2 front doors, a sign box for the front(or 4 depending on if i attach it to the side panels or not)  the base, the roof(maybe each stack separated) and the lamp.

I think it's the bare minimum for à flatable prop, i'm also planing on having bien being easy to put together, so i'll have quite the prototyping to do. So i don't spend to much time building and fixing stuff while people walk into the shot or whatever.

Again, suggestions are open to any ideas, and i'll try to post sketches and progrès to any concept i come out with.

I'll try to do my notes and reasearch in english when i sketch, but don't be mad if at some point i forget and wright in baguette. IMG_20210319_034527_937.jpg

For now, i'm theorisin what and how much pièces and how to make them assemblé and fit together. I really want à solide box when it's all mounted

That's a classic! Informative and funny!
A mixed-up non-conformist, trying to fit in.

I think every one knows about here here X)

I think i even got here because of her.
But i'm affraid, as i'm working on a model and i'm looking for a screen acurate look, it won't help me much

But thx à lot any way, i'll rewatch it and see if i can find something

There's irony for you.  "Sally" felt ashamed of her efforts when viewing these forums while we see her as an intrepid hero, pretty much an unofficial spokesperson for this site!  (At least, I do.)

Yeah, I know she did it for comic effect, but seriously, she never had reason to be embarrassed.  As she noted, hers is foldable and thus (relatively) easy to transport!

Did "Sally" ever join these forums?

BTW, yes, to my untrained ears and no knowledge of the language, German does sound quite "aggressive"!

So... We're under lock down again here, and i'm restricted on what matérial i can use now. I guess i could still buy stuff on amazon (wich i did for the 2mm plans before) but i'll try to do as much recycling as with all the other boxes. Heck, i'll surlly find à way to make my stuff anyway. I just need more planning and "ressources managing" i guess

Hang on in there...

We'll all get back to normal in the end!
