I've been gathering parts for a while and I thought I should start a build diary. I'm using Bill Rudloff's excellent PDFs for reference.
I have a animatronic pirate pub Halloween display that this will be added to. When it's not serving double duty as a garden shed.newpic112.jpgnewpic124.jpg

And I'll probably be offering help on this too.  Got a fenced in yard for two dogs to run around? ;)

evil bob

Good Luck with the build!

Where did you get the signs?

evil bob

I got the top signs from a local sign shop. I used Bill's awesome PDF file. I bought the door sign from therfp.con. A fan made metal pto sign.

whats your plan for the "St Johns" sign?

evil bob

I got some files from GalacticProbe Dino for the St. John's badge. I'm going to take it to a local sign shop and have them print a 5" diameter vinyl disk.

If it ends up being around 20 bucks, would you be willing to have an extra one made so i could buy it from you? :)

evil bob

They probably charge less for multiple copies. Ill ask them.

Wow! Some decent quality lumber there, evil bob! Nice wood grain in the ply if you're going for the 2005 or 2010 TARDIS look. And it's also got really smooth surfaces for easy texturing if you're going for a Classic TARDIS look. Nice haul!

Thanks Dino! I'm going for a 2005/2010 hybrid look.
