Just finished this... resin cast, hand painted in acrylics. I think the mold is probably good for about 20 pulls, so I might do a few more, possibly different styles. Hand painted the signs, but I might get some decal printer paper - anyone know if that stuff works?
It was just too small to paint 'Police = Box'. :)
I'd love to make police box snowglobes :)
Bonus points for anyone who recognises the box design...

It's actually cast from an old Triang Toys Police Box, from the 1950s, that's what I meant - I didn't sculpt it - I had an old Triang box with almost no paint on it - I really like the chunky look to the windows and pillars, so I decided to take a cast of it and paint it up tardis style. When it comes to die-cast police boxes everyone immediately thinks 'dinky' but there were a number of less die-cast manufacturers offering metropolitan style police box toy.

Three stacks...? I'm going with 1929 style police box...
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.

Reminds me of the Dinky Police Box...

My pilot's license? That's out back in the Cessna. Or perhaps you're referring to my license to kill. Revoked. Trouble at the Kazakhstan border.

I could give you the details but then I'd have to kill you, which I can't do because my license to kill has been revoked.
