Looking great! And yes those notches look like a labour of love.

printed up some templates based on Scarfwearer's measurements to get started


Hope I got my sums right! :o

Crispin, for what ever reason you made me think of Star Trek IV -
Spock: Mr Scott can not give me exact figures so I have had to guess ....
McCoy: May all your guesses be right
(paraphrased)
next thing I have to work on is the underside of the console - So i need to make another template. Looking to other build diaries for inspiration.

Hi all...
just a couple of photos of progress on my under panels... ;D

A few more detail shots of the Five Doctors console on display:

The underside:

After having seen a hexagonal opening in one of the underside panels of the console a while back, I was inspired to try see if this opening was still present.  Sadly I couldn't see any obvious openable openable hexagons (it's probably shifted around to the back of the console), but it appears that most, if not all the undersides have a hexagon detail on the "V" panel:

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

I actually like the photos showing the console 'table' with the supporting plinth the 'wrong' way up - nice effect  ;) In all seriousness though, this is coming along very nicely indeed. Lovely build!

warmcanofcoke

Thanks Tony.  :D
I thought it looked kind of neat to place the Console parts in a variety of positions - possible future console designs - plus, once everything is glued together I won't have the opportunity to do it again. I started using card stock because I had a lot of it hanging around - purchased for various art classes, and then never used. Still there are times I think It would have been better to use a thin plastic on this project.

Thank you for the kind coments. They keep me going. I have been looking at the various construction capabilities of the Tardis console parts. Turning bits upside down and attaching them together in various new configurations.  Don't worry I still plan on building a faithful model, it's just fun to play around every now and then. Maybe I'll inspire someone to build a console based on one of these images.

You have some serious patience! (I'd bet that, with a little tape, you could re-assemble a document that's gone through a shredder! ;))

I have actually done that before. About 20 years ago, I did some summer work for a private investigations firm... :)
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.

very cool - And also, you have been awesome at tracking down BBC Set plans as well as other useful data.  ;)

Also, so these bits don't get knocked down on to the floor and mixed up -I've implemented safety precautions.

Well this is coming right along. Almost as if you didn't have to worry about work. ;)  I saw a bottle of steak sauce in one pic.  You aren't going to baste the console are you?

I haven't been going out to visit friends for a few days and I work from home. ;) I mostly go out on the weekends. as for the Steak Sauce - I have been eating my meals in the office.  :P
