Thanks for all the encouragement once again!
With regards to the Five Doctors console, someone has already made a superb example...

Awesome! Not a word that I use very often, if at all. This deserves it however! Yours and The Five Doctors console, but the Hartnell is delicious and the best!

That's just fantastic.  The doors look great too.

Can I ask what paint you used to get that convincing console green? Is the shade available off the shelf, or did you mix it?

That console looks amazing, especially that photo with the column all lit up! You have a superb talent and an fantastic eye for detail. Well done!

The green is a DULUX emulsion sample pot of CRUSHED PINE 4 from B&Q.

The Season 2 Hartnell box is one I made. There are some pictures of it in the model Tardis gallery.

Wow, that came together quickly. :)  Smashing effort.

Is that the last of the scale console builds you're planning, or are there any others you want to take a crack at?

That is just amazing. Don't know what to say - it's incredible.  :o

Superb! Right up there with the unreleased Character Options one! :)

The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.

Unreleased Character Options one?! Do you mean the one Archie made?

Oh goodness! This is quite splendid! ;D ;D ;D








Yes I'm geeking out as I do sometimes on the board ;D

Can't wait to see it done.

Yep, Archie's one. It was part of a special range by CO. I forget the name of it now... But Archie's was a prototype for an official limited edition run. IIRC...

Thanks once again for all the encouragement everyone!

Moving forward, once the Hartnell is finished, the next project is probably going to be a Pertwee "Inferno" console. I'm not going to replicate most of the broken bits, but include the revised panel replacing the one with the radiation meter, as well as the other components and graphics that were added for this story. I might include the single flag in the column, but the rest will be intact, unlike the real prop's last outing.
And after that, I might possibly attempt the Season 13 1975/76 Tom Baker version, but that will be a way off. There would be lots of panel and instrument templating to do for that model, although a few components were still included from the earlier versions.
