My Console
You cannot see attachments on this board.
Here's my console as it currently looks. It's been under way occasionally for
about 4 years. Still not really finished.

Now we have the technology, I've added a flat panel display under the
navigation panel. There's a PC buried in there somewhere too.

According to some of the plans this panel is the Tardis central computer.

There are two parts to this: The column is counter-weighted so it can move up
and down freely, and there is a crank box which pushes it up and down like a
piston. It needs some adjustment at the moment, as it's not working well.

I had to cut down the case to get it to fit under there

Rarely seen in the series and never completely, this is my interpretation of
what might be up there when you look up, Getting it up there was back-breaking
.

Emergency Power Mode

There are a couple of stories where the power fails (only a couple?) so I
thought some subdued lighting would be good.

Here's an exploded view of my console with some approximate dimensions. I
found it best to built the substructure with some basic dimensions and then
cut the smaller parts to fit.

Kidnapped!

Thanks to the TARDIS's dimensional grace, we managed to kidnap some daleks in
1971. Of course we took them back... eventually.

Wander in the 3rd Dimension

Here's a stereo pair of the console. To see this, maximize your browser, sit
a little back, put your finger pointing upward about 8" from your nose so
that when you look at the picture you see two ghosts of your finger both
pointing at the base of the console in each picture. Now look at your finger.
Now turn your attention to the console, and it should snap into focus in
glorious 3D. Don't do this for long as it may give you eye-strain.
