The 2013 Pattern? What color do you want it in? And what is the resolution of your screen? The BBC uses 640 by 480 / 800 by 600 / 1024 by 768 on their website.
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

Thanks for that! The old series roundels, 4 wide, makes a lovely wallpaper for my iPad and works in either orientation. :-)

My new test prints are in. I re-sized the wall paper so that the roundels are now 19.5 inches across (I'll double check just as soon as I find my ruler - seriously those thing disappear on me when I'm doing a project.) I've double checked with a ruler.  ;D

I'm trying to figure out what this wallpaper is made out of - I want to see if I can vacuumform the roundels over a positive and get a shaped piece of wall paper - Then I will attach it to some transparent plastic and make some wall segments with roundel holes.

Let the Zigma beam experiments continue !!!

The Door Opening Mechanism - the red door control.
116Logopolis0028.jpg
I went to the craft store Michaels (http://www.michaels.com/) and purchased a couple of wooden spheres. I assume they are used to help you sew a sock closed as well as many other functions. knowing that I could always coke-it-up I purchased a few of these and drilled a whole through the ball. I do know that they do sell pre-drilled wooden spheres but they usually have a flat underside where the hole is.

I found that my first attempt to drill was a little lopsided (Glad I had two irons in the fire...) not to worry this gives me one I can experiment with before I try anything with the Good One. My second attempt was successful. The Drill hole is true (well as true as it needs to be.)

The brass tubes I used on my Police Box Beacon also work for the door control. http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=3548.60#msgx49861

(The brass tube with the paint on it was scratched and has a pinch in the pipe - so it is a scrap piece. ) I discovered the red spray-paint I chose from my basement had air bubbles in it and didn't spray on to the ball evenly so I used an artists brush to smooth the coat before it dried. I'll pick up some of my favorite brand of spray-paint over the week and try again before I paint the Ball that will become the door control.

Here I have spray pained the better of the two door opening mechanisms
IMG_3636A_zps469a93de.jpg
Here I am cutting the brass pipe
IMG_3641A_zps4edba089.jpg
and here I have shortened the brass pipe again.
IMG_3685A_zps7dbffc96.jpg
I have added a couple of 1/4" nuts and washers to the threaded rod.
Also here is a wooden dowel.
IMG_3686A_zps77dbb68e.jpg
Three wooden axles cut from the dowel.

removed the extra brass piece.

So I can make these gold switches  at the bottom of this screen capture as well.

Ideas for making the switches functional : I can adapt this wood axle to turn a gear that in turn turns a rheostat. Or I can add a smaller wooden knob on the other end of the threaded rod and use that to activate a rocker switch maybe.

....Soon to make the other levers.
