AMAZING! A really nice collection of consoles you have there! It's amazing what can be achieved with card.
Thanks for your help with the Pertwee graphics by the way.

Thanks "Mark" my pleasure - I just wish I had your talent in acrylic - now those are truly beautiful work.

Hello, I'm not exactly sure what your asking for?
I don't have model kit templates to share at this time...
(The graphics themselves were made on Live Pix 2.0)

i want the panels so i can print them of to make a hartnell console, like you have printed them of

stiki

Can I direct you to this gentleman's site:

Hello All

Just finished my Season 13 (Pyramids of Mars configuration) Console and thought you might like to see:

I really need to make a start on the Console Room...

Wow! Great work again! You're REALLY ploughing through them aren't you! :)
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.

Thanks Rassilon!
Yes, these have become a bit of an obsession now  ;D
Now I've completed the Season 13 graphics, it shouldn't be too much work to adapt these for models from Season 15, 18 & 19 or 20 as the configuration remains largely the same.
I may even end up with a complete set of models showing the evolution of the Classic Console!

After I posted my pictures I decided I wasn't happy with the "candy stripe" Central Column, so I've reworked this, toning down some of the colours and adding some detail:

How do you get the "glass" column constructed?  Do you just look around until you find a transparent plastic tube with a cap of the correct size and use it?  I think that's the only thing that's stopping me from having a go at a classic console.

stiki

Hello - short answer is yes!
I already worked out the scale of the console model and then went looking for a suitable plastic tube.
First one I found was a "Dr Oetker" Birthday Candle Set and this was perfect - only requiring cutting down to size height wise.
However the manufacturer must have changed the design because the current sets are in much narrower tubes.

At Christmas my local "Card Factory" sold wrapping ribbon & bows (2 for £1) in plastic tubes.
The diameter was slightly larger (only a couple of mm) so I bought half a dozen of those.

Currently Sainsburys offer edible cake decorations in plastic tubes.
These are narrower, but depending on the scale you want to achieve could be used and wouldn't need cutting down.
Supermarkets are a good source - especially the "Home Baking" section.

Hope this helps?

magnificent work - they are so pretty. I wish I had a set. keep up the good work.  :D
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

So, all of time and space, everything that ever happened or ever will, where do you want to start?

Hello, thanks for your interest.
I don't have a downloadable template available at the moment - I simply make the pieces as I need them.
However can I direct you to this gentleman's site:
