Don't mind the broken handle during transport, i'll néed to find à way to made them more robusteIMG_20210620_225809_964.jpgIMG_20210620_225806_098.jpgIMG_20210620_225804_095.jpgIMG_20210620_225807_209.jpg

The broken handle just lends a BBC props department verisimilitude to the location shots.

Smith did broke à few apparently, so i guess you're right. He dangled à lot from those in and in between shots.

Fixed and way more durable.
I guess this is how i'll do stuff in the future.
So now i'm using à very soft métal wire (zamak i think) tha i flatten on the tips and à bit on the middle to make the handles, letting spare exess on the tips bent as sharp of à 90° angle i can get to act as a nails. There Is no extra glue, but if it brokes or if i need even more robuste handles (for sanding scratches and abusive use)

So here is à broken test pièce. IMG_20210621_192307_510.jpgIMG_20210621_192305_086.jpg

And here is the final resultIMG_20210621_192302_860.jpg

Tardis D prop update
I have made the smallest hinges i've ever scratch built.
So i proudly anounce that the next props will feature à openable phone pannel.
Thanks to that cheap dremel tool. It's very handy.
This one wont feature à phone, other wise the pull to open sign wont light up. Maybe à remouvable one later.

Édit: if you dremel métal like i did or anything else, please wear eye protection and, if needed, masks.

Edit: i'll have to think about à remouvable one anyway, or it will get it the way of the door. The big one this time, not the just the Phone pannel.
It would be acurate on a box with the Toyota interior i guess...
More things to think and draft about.
Anyway, enjoy^^

So here is how it looks nowIMG_20210721_233215_062.jpgIMG_20210721_233212_758.jpgIMG_20210721_233211_376.jpg

And it's as fonctionnal as it looks
