QuoteHow interesting to note that the console is in the centre of the room! Who'da thought...
QuoteYou mention you are going to build a TARDIS as well? Have you started? IF so what box are you planning on building?

He auctioned one print off at Visions '96 in Chicago. I got video footage of it and made screen caps. What you have posted must be the master copy of the plans.As far as the prop that was supposed to be made from these plans, I don't think it quite happened. The first fiberglass TARDIS was used almost exclusively through Colin Baker's first full season. The second fiberglass prop wasn't introduced until 1986, and essentially was a recast of the original prop, with some minor alterations. If they were planning to make a new prop for the show, it didn't happen in 1984 like they originally wanted. So maybe these plans were for a prop that never happened?The first TYJ Prop is in the hands of Andrew Beech and was fixed up. The Second prop is with the BBC. It was repaired 7 years ago, but it has since gone into a bad state again. It's currently somewhere in the bowels of the BBC.But thanks for bringing all these to the forefront. I know the studio plans will come in handing for the chap making the Season 20 console room in 3D.Bill "the Doctor" Rudloff

They can't have come from the Design Department because, by 1996, the department had been closed down. Also, any old design drawings had long since been destroyed even before I left the deparment in 1992 (aside from the ones I was able to save). It's possible that another fan had a copy or the designers themselves had kept hold of their drawings or copies of them. But my drawing is the original, so if that's what Segal had, it must have come from a print.
Quote from: Teletran on Aug 18, 2010, 02:57 pmI just noticed that the fourth wall of the console room is probably, not the fourth wall of the console room!If you look at the angle of the columns it sugests that those walls are part of an external corridor and not part of the console room itself. Pity.
