Hi all,
I am now away from my computer until later tonight but I have read posts expressing desire to recreate props from the 60's movie TARDIS. I have folders of reference shots that I am uploading into a purpose built site of reference shots not limited to the movies however.

I will upload the specific TARDIS shots here later but for now here is the link to the site (only 2150AD uploaded so far):

Cool! I love identifying sci fi props.

In that picture above - on the central "console" I can identify an old British Police car light on the top:

And a window vent on the front:

The shapes of the consoles suggest to me old television sets (possibly some old studio monitors?) like this:

I suppose the "vents" on the side could be due to them being old studio monitors or they could've been added later. Looks like the pipes are just standard plumbing parts.

Everything else looks pretty obvious i.e. neon tubes, volt meters etc etc.
