Whoopee!  Beats ice and rain down here.  Hopefully your TARDIS survives better after the refit.

Justin great to see your tardis again which also looks really lovely in the snow. Any plans for another tardis build in the near future.

I too love the way your TARDIS looks in the snow. I am guessing you are about to get another blast of snow. I tossed 9 inches here in NW Illinois last night and looks to be headed your way.

I was hoping to get my TARDIS built and in the yard by now. I guess I will be waiting until Spring before I plant my TARDIS in the Yard.

Lovely looking tardis. Does it stay out all year round? how does it hold up agaist leaking, warping and warping? chris.

If I remember rightly, his box finally succumbed to the elements a year or so ago. Canada's got harsh weather.

Heavy caulking, fiberglass resin, and paintable rubber sealant are 3 things that people have used.

Whoa comments on my build!

As Bill said, it unfortunately succumbed, but as soon as I get my own place 2.0 WILL begin...with storage indoors. I could have kept better care by fully sealing it up and painting with a more weather resistant paint for sure. Better wood as well. Its all about the materials and the finishing.

I used tar paper (painted) on the actual roof and, when I found some rot on the "steps" of the roof (which where heavily caulked), added this stick-on plastic(?) flashing.  The flashing looks terrible because as careful as I was applying it, there are still lots of bubbles and waves to it.  The tar paper is high enough up that it really isn't noticeable.

Still, if I were doing it again, the paintable rubber is probably the way I'd go.

Excellent cosplay, by the way.  You look close enough to the Doc and Rose to be their stunt doubles.
