Normally, they have their console pic in the back with lights shining down from the roof of the box, illiuminating both the panel and people inside. They only normally take the back off if several people have to emerge from the box (normally with only half a console pic) or if something big has to be taken through. Although, that's rare, so, all I'm really doing is waffling lol. Oh well. It was a nice waffle!

Quote from: celation on Sep 23, 2010, 05:34 pmThere's no other way to light the translight, really - other than to take the back of the box off. And if it's unlit, it's pretty dark.I'd say that pretty much any time you can see the interior through the Police Box doors, the box will be missing the back.
Quote from: philipw on Sep 23, 2010, 07:49 pmThat's what I was thinking.Though that make me now wonder if it's possible to light up a translight that size with diffused fluorescents, like I have done a number of times for backlit poster boxes. And then, how to get an image that would work.
