Phil Bevan Tardis Console Room

A beautiful gothic tardis design from back in '93 when rumors of the movie
were begining!

Movie Console
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The McGann console. My main inspiration.
 Herr_Dokter 29/11/2003



Prototype
You cannot see attachments on this board.
A hastily imposed pic of my prototype. To give my Pops an idea of scale, I
build this full scale five-sided console completely from newspaper!

bundle
You cannot see attachments on this board.
A big bag of control panels. Still nothing on the old panels i lost... some
of this stuff can be harvested

The Equalizer
You cannot see attachments on this board.
I used to have two of these babies. I like them best of all. The switches
make a rather satisfying clunk, and the dials ratchet. I used to have long
rows of switches like that. Maybe I'll get some more soon...
 Herr_Dokter 10/03/2004



Cardboard Model
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The cardboard scale model amongst plans (including one drawing from 1998!)
The model had an underneath... but a bandril ate it.
 Herr_Dokter 12/08/2004



Console Outline
You cannot see attachments on this board.
A rather blurred photograph of a sketch. This gives and idea of the ratios
and angles. In terms of scale it'll be slightly smaller than the McGann
console. The top of the rotor will involve a tangle of wires... hopefully that
'll stop it looking like a stove.

The Beautiful Switches

Just look at them. Imagine flicking them! WOW!
 Herr_Dokter 22/09/2004



The Chronometer
You cannot see attachments on this board.
This Hartnell-esque chronometer shall be chopped up into little bits. Remember
; it's not like the ones you wear on your wrist!
 Herr_Dokter 22/09/2004



Console size
You cannot see attachments on this board.
Resizing the top section on the cardboard model.
 Herr_Dokter 22/09/2004



First Panel
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The very first panel to be cut. Isn't it exciting?!
 Herr_Dokter 25/09/2004



FIVE!?
You cannot see attachments on this board.
A rather scary moment when we thought we'd screwed up our measurements and
made a FIVE-sided console! Dapol would be proud!
 Herr_Dokter 25/09/2004



Six
You cannot see attachments on this board.
Phew! What a horrible few seconds. It's a six after all, and we're not going
crazy. Good News!
 Herr_Dokter 25/09/2004



Rotors
You cannot see attachments on this board.
On the right, the Bubble Lamp I purchaced recently. On the left, the Bubble
Lamp that originally inspired me to begin the console project again, that i
have just been given for free!

Sticky Tape

everything held together nicely. just imagine!
 Herr_Dokter 26/09/2004



Ledge
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The ledge has become a handy guide for the position of the panels. Doesn't
this look like the shot of the console on the home page?
 Herr_Dokter 26/09/2004



panel
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The first completed panel, including the lovely equalizer box. Not very happy
with the lights at the moment, but you've gotta work with what you've got.
 Herr_Dokter 04/10/2004



Rotor fire
You cannot see attachments on this board.
No words could adequately describe the light and movement of the bubble-lamp
rotor. The fact that this picture looks like fire goes some small way towards
visualising it.
 Herr_Dokter 04/10/2004



Rotor yellow
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The rotor changes colour. I may add a green food couloring, but I'm not sure.
 Herr_Dokter 04/10/2004



Update!
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The console as it looks at the moment!
 Herr_Dokter 26/10/2004



Wiring
You cannot see attachments on this board.
Wiring one of the panels. Each panel is powered seperately on AA batteries!
 Herr_Dokter 26/10/2004



Panels
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The panels when they are removed. Check the hinging! This shows some of the
work poor Pops has put into the modular design!
 Herr_Dokter 02/03/2005



Collar
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The upper and lower "collars" are made from tupperware bowls with bolts in,
painted with hammerite. It still has to have another coat to texture it a bit
more.
 Herr_Dokter 02/03/2005



Wood Stain
You cannot see attachments on this board.
Here's a glimpse of the table section stained. The grain comes out so well. It
's really starting to look like a piece of furniture! Only three weeks to go!
 Herr_Dokter 02/03/2005



Panel one
You cannot see attachments on this board.
With motorized clocks and sequenced colours in the lamp.
 Herr_Dokter 01/04/2005



Panel Two
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The lights are sequenced, and the dial is connected to the left-hand knob.
 Herr_Dokter 04/04/2005



Panel Three
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The chronometer has rotating counters for time and date. The top push button
puts the lights into different sequences in green, blue and red. The bottom
switch activates the TARDIS sound-effect.
 Herr_Dokter 04/04/2005



Panel Four
You cannot see attachments on this board.
My favourite! The lovely equalizer box controls the light sequences. There
are also two set of connectors which can be used to power seperate devices.
 Herr_Dokter 04/04/2005



Panel Five
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The messy panel. The twin dials are controlled by the two middle red switches
and the black knobs. The red switch on the right powers the right-hand panel
which is another red-green-blue sequence. The sequence is changed by the
black toggle. The red switch on the left powers the left-hand panel.
 Herr_Dokter 04/04/2005



Panel Six
You cannot see attachments on this board.
The empty-ish panel! Hopefully I'll install a monitor when it comes along,
but for the moment Red, Amber and Green lights are controlled individually by
the switches. The lights flash totally out of sequence, and patterns appear.

Lovely!
