Not quite what I origionally intended.  Made with a Matchbox car-no particular scale.

Can you name the episode and make out the taxi passengers?

Made of Balsa and Bass wood with some carving, cutting and gluing.  The light is an led bulb from one of those small battery operated sets.  About 6 man hours build time.  Not perfect , but I like it.

That is sweet!  For some reason it looks like it's made of icing-covered cake. 

[Homer Simpson] Mmm....TARDIS cake... [/Homer Simpson]

I'll guess "Spearhead From Space". Am I wrong?

Dale is correct! Exilea, also. I should have specified series.  Donna is in the back with gown and veil (she started as a Disney belle figure)  The"Pilot fish" Santa came in a Matchbox farm tractor set and was a farmer.  Now after some trimming and paint along with red felt he drives the cab.  Hard to see the buggers inside. I should have taken a pic before I sealed the taxi.  The only mod to the taxi is the removal of two windows.


The "cake" appearance is due to camera flash.  The paint job looks more weathered in person.
