Little update, panel frames are done on that side. It's taking shape. And i'm sorry for rambling, but that paint. I didn't liked it much when i've discovered   it in the élèventh hour, but seeing the paint finish in réal life, i get it now.

Little update.
I've made all the sign boxes despite lacking the 2mm wood. And i'm pretty happy with those so far. I've moved on to finish ING the post by making tho gutters thingy (such à pain, so much time, i'm so glade i have that dremel that made to concave edges possible and might have cut the time à bit... But boi !)
 After that, paint... And then i remmembered the way i wanted to fit the pannel and i have to be care full to not mess up the paint job while carving the notches. It's not done on all corner posts yet, but it shall be done soon. I've also started making one of thoses pannels. So far it fits verry nicely.
I'm hoping to see this build come to an end soon (maybe 2weeks).
Here are some photos of the past days, enjoy^^

Very nice indeed! Cannot wait to see this completed.

So... I wanted to make a bit more paint just to be safe and finish everything on the tardis when final painying session would be up... Exept i messe up 2 proportion and had to ré adjust everything. So now, my mix is spot on (and tested) but i have 90ml of paint.... Woops
I' guess i'll have to either make more tardis (E prop from séries 6b to 7b) or give some away.
So if intressted, let me know.

The back panel is painted on the out side and i've made my first Windows. There's à few things to correct, one of them being my technics needs improvment for making my beveled edges sharper and try and use filler more sparingly. Outside of that, i'm realy happy with the results. I'm still really happy with the paint m, dispite me having made this batch à bit more runnier and fined, wich means more coats and drying time. But it stains the wood déraper and i'll need that when i'll come to weathering (wich shall be à bit of a used effect by scraping lightly the edges of the prop, some minor dirtying of the base, especialy on the door side, and on the posts,and bent handles for Matt smith to hang and destroy While cutting him self.) like the Tv movie box, it will be descreat.

One more panel done, 1more to go and doors. It's almost finished. Still needs one more coat of paint, don't worry i've noticed.

End of the day constatation post i guess. Not much happened. We've go Windows (previously mat for a while but now satin for more screen accuracy) pannels are patend blu and Black on the back. The base ass seen some paint too and électronique fitings have seen some modifications.

I've noticed the parts had expended after panting, due to how Rhin i made it à for it to penetrate and stain the wood à bit deaper. I'll give the bow à good week or more dismenteled for it to dry of and trim the panels if necesary for thème to fit better. Other then that, i can bet what's comming. Doors, last pannels, graphics, proper light mountings and à floor. And we shall be done with it. I'll also try to find some tainted film for the windows and à système to switch thoses around.
Any way. Here's some photos, i hope you'll enjoye. IMG_20210501_025020_343.jpgIMG_20210501_025017_750.jpgIMG_20210501_025016_525.jpgIMG_20210501_025014_850.jpgIMG_20210501_025013_177.jpgIMG_20210501_025010_593.jpgIMG_20210501_025008_759.jpgIMG_20210501_025007_081.jpg

This looks, insanely cool.

Not à very productive week end (tardis wise).
The 3rd side panel is done, only à few coasts of paint left. Also pannel adjustment is being taken care of. I'm still waiting for a week to make sure everything as dried of for sure but i've still have trimmed down à bit the pannels so the gaps closes betwin the sign boxes and the roof.

Any way
Here is à couple photos, nothing exeptionnal.

Also here is what i see from my bed when i wake upIMG_20210503_031434_628.jpg

I've finished the side pannels(very happy of my paint job on the last one. I'll be moving on to the doors tomorow i think. I've also fond that box of chocolates with that peble texture, i'll have to do look for refs, but i va believe thé tardis floor to have that concret texture, wich i think would look thé part with à light gray aplied over it.
Also i need to go to the auto store and find Black film. And also find a système to switch colored films anf backed out Windows. Challenging stuff to come then i guess.

I'll post my réflection here for you to suggestions.
