The card stock was too flimsy to build the whole thing. I'll have to introduce a little foam core before continuing, though I'm fairly satisfied by the initial paper test. With the original long gone, we can never prove anything, but I'm ready to put a fork in the basic dims.

The test model is looking great so far, lespaceplie! Is it the half-scale one you were trying out?

Here are a bunch of season 14 screen caps, if this helps.

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

Those are some great grabs, Nate! (Do we know whose they are, so we can ask permission to post some of them here in the Reference Section - just in case that page goes down one day?)

Also, do we have any idea what size those squares are in that drawing on Page 2? That could help determine the overall size of the console's top half. (If those squares are 2 ft x 2 ft, then that console looks like it could be a little more than 3 feet point to point (it's a shame that console isn't centered on the squares). There is a note pointing to the raised platform that looks like it says "2200 DIA PODIUM". So I'm guessing it means the podium/platform the console is on is 2200 (something) in diameter. If that measure is millimeters, that would make the platform 2.2 meters in diameter (or 7.22 feet - close enough to call it 7 feet 3 inches, or 2.5 inches if we split hairs).

I wish there were more drawings like this for this console and room.

They are mine - feel free to post as needed. I refer to them when I need to make a point in a post. Check out the other images in the hierarchy as well.  I'm not sure the size of the squares, however I think I saw a cleaned version of the console room plans on the forum somewhere........

Oh, cool! I'll browse through that console's References and see if there are any of yours that might be larger, or aren't in the collection, and post them. Thanks for sharing those, Nate!

The hinged portion of the panel laid flat is exactly 8" tall, 11" at the top and 17.5" at the bottom. This is a hint that I'm on the right trail.


sort of like this maybe?

Hi Lespacepile,

I took a look at your drawing for the panels and I did a quick mock up model in 3D to see how those dim's work --

Console Test 4.jpg

At first I was having a small issue with the panels joining at the top of the unit, so I changed the 11" width to 11.5" and that seemed to close my gap issue -- The other dim's are correct and the do line up with the other parts --

As for the Plinth, it only seemed right to add it to the model -- I did however notice that around the lower door openings, there seems to be a 0.25" half moon or slightly beveled moulding that goes around the door panel -- It looks to be attached to the frame and not the door directly and seems to be present on all six sides --

It seems to be noticable in the images posted on this thread from "The Hand of Fear" -- you can just about make it out in the pics of Sarah sitting up against the plinth (right by her hair on both sides) --

Enjoy

Nice work (and quick!) :)

Can you do a closeup of the lid please? I'd like to see something.... Just close enough to see two of the side corners and the inlays. Cheers :)

Nice work Oslm! Can we get a shot of the diamond panel patten laid flat? That would make a great template.

Hello,

As requested here are the two images you asked about --

1st a quick black & white shot of the top showing the inlay pattern I used -- I can do a seperate more detailed version for you showing the front and backside of the panel if you want --

AO Pass top.jpg

Next is a closer shot of the two corners of the top with the inlay visible (textured) -- Again, when I do the seperate panel shot for Nate (warmcanofcoke) I can do a textured version for you as well Marc --

Also I am attaching a quick close up shot of the plinth base that I hope will show the half moon molding around the door --

Enjoy

Here is a closer look at the front and backside of the panel --

I still have to work out the inner dim's for the moment, but once I have them I will do the writing desk area first and then I will look at the other panels --

Enjoy

Ah that's what I wanted to see. I think they should be flush, inlaid. So the only difference in height would be the height in between the pieces.

So it would be smooth if you ran your fingers over the individual elements. Like inlays on a guitar fretboard. :)

I looked at making them flush with the surface, but when I do the mapping they get lost in the textures --

I decided to raise it 1/8" above the surface to help it stand out and from a couple of the reference images it sorta looks raised --

I'd just do a flat surface and paint the black lines into the texture.
