happy to help
as i stated i'll be making plans for the rest of the modern boxes with the exeption of the 2010 D prop as that ones already been made accuratly

alextheyellowthing

so!
I tried an mostly aprouves the plans for the AB prop.
i'm still wodering if the scale is maybe a bit big by a few mill (what makes me say that, is that some musurements are wierd specifics wher i felt it would have been made with standar sized pieces of wood you could get at the wood depo, but it's just a thought, nothing that i'm sure of). but other wise, proportions looks quite good!

so i've trown that together quickly, i think it's a big improvment on my curent model wich is based on the production plans. i'm not sure about the lamp, i've improvised, i only have the top cap at home

any way, i hope you don't mind me modeling it out of your plans. if it's ok, i'll use this as a base for my future studio scale models.

The_TARD1Sman

Thanks à lot mate. Looking good. It's funny, i always thought that the C box was bigger then the A/B box. Like basicly, they just adjusted the base, roof and police signs to wider corner posts.

Also, is D just like C but with à thiccer base, reshaped roof and thiccer window bars ?

now that i'm 3d modelising the F prop following your plans, asumming they are accurates, i'm more baffeled by how much the last F and G props were neglected. none of the pannel squares are the same size. it's sad :(

also it got smaller over the years. wich i'm personnaly not a fan of but it's barely noticeable

The_TARD1Sman

yeah its nuts ahah , and as far as im aware theyre the only plans out there made for the box ( accurately ) its definatly as close as one can get to accuracy for sure but id only know for sure if i measured the box in person  ;) but thankfully through working with the bbc and big finish ive been gifted with bbc high res ref images to help me get the box dimensions right using photogrammetry
