I still have to build the time rotor (I have a plan), I have to construct the outside walls, and I have to make a new viewer cover (the original didn't fit quite right), but otherwise, this is done! Lots of work went into it, and I'm pretty proud of myself :)

You've every right to be proud of yourself, that's a great model you've crafted.  Well done :)

In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

I agree, very impressive detail for this miniature. Amazing the talent some people have. I could'nt do miniatures due to my big hands.

This looks wonderful! Did you take any photos during the earlier stages?
I would love to see how you did it.

Thanks for the great responses guys :) Here's a little more on my process.

I built my console room from foamcore and a sturdy printer paper:

... which I painted various shades of grey and black:

The floor and ceiling were layered to build grooves for the walls:

and I built simple softboxes for the transparent roundels with battery operated Christmas lights and printer paper:

And the console was built on a paper frame, with stickers over the frame (for the buttons) and painted panels over the stickers:

Then I assembled the main walls, which include opening main doors and the secondary door (with paper hinges):

Finally, I added the ceiling, columns and trim at the top:

Here are a couple with all 11 Doctors:

I wonder if the good Doctor can end up where he plans on going with 11 of him in there to operate the controls  :P

Fanstastic!  I love the way you framed it with that black surround. That's a beautiful display piece you've created.  I really like the shot through the door.  Great sense of perspective and movement. :)
