Hey Jon, thanks for the compliments.  I am thinking of the NST colors actually. I think it reallly gives a nice aged look to the box which is why I think I will go with that.  then a wash of the black for additional aging.

I am feeling a need for a repaint and new signs, more in line with her style which is very old school. currently its a NST door and top signs.  I also need to get that fresnel working with a flasher unit of some kind.

Hey thanks TG,  That is where she will be living for the majority of the summer, we are probably going to have that side of the deck redone later this year, if we don't sell the house first. but for now there she stays.  As far as materializing..how do you think I got it from the basement to the deck :)

I ordered some new signs for the old girl,  I decided I wanted to go with a more classic style sign as my box is really a classic build. I think I made the right choice on this.  They really stand out a lot more.  She is in cold storage right now during the winter months but I propped up the signs over the current ones so you get the general idea.

Definitely looks much better and make it more Hartnell in feel.

Ahhh Karst, beautiful shots of the TARDIS... I do particularly like the shot looking upward that encompasses the TARDIS with entire house as well.

It is also good to see the ol' girl re-assembled.  I understand your concern over the winter and what that could do to her as well.  I am with you, if you can disassemble and store then I would!
Water and ice make for trouble to any TARDIS.  I look forward to seeing some of your changes that you mentioned.   

cheers,
Jon~

Wow Karst, What a beautiful build! It looks amazing up on the terrace, is it going to live there?
The shot from the ground looking up... and seeing a TARDIS in the air is just terrific.
I'm convinced it could only have got there by materialisation  :)

This has got to be the best view of it, there's something rather special about this angle.  Don't know what it is, possibly the way the light is catching the windows and the lamp.

Great location for the old girl, karst! :)
In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.

Wow! What an amazing setting Karst! You're lucky to have a fibreglass build to weather the elements - I wish I had a sheltered place for my build, but you can put yours anywhere! Looks great! :-)

Thanks guys,  It is nice having the fiberglass and it is more weather resistant but I am still nervous as hell about leaving it in the elements over the harsh Vermont winters so I usually bring her in for the winter.  There are a few things on her I want to change after having been with her for a while.  I am thinking of a repaint, and also some new signage in more of an Old School style.  We will see though..not a huge priority, I need to get cracking on my console :)

Ahhhh Spring, when a young man's fancy turns to Blue Boxes.  :)  Excuse the poor quality I took it with my phone :P

Really cool to see your box up again :) I'm really feeling the oldschool vibe of your box with those new signs :)
