I'm very impressed and I'm sure glueing the hundreds of buttons will be rewarding in its own way!  ;D

just a little detail I thought I'd update.

I saw Kingpin's fine Photo and decided to make a modification.

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

This reminds me of when I build my full-sized 5 Doctors console out of cardboard in the mid-90's.  The insets are always a bear, even when at full size.  The there's the buttons...ugh my fingers raw from all that duct tape.

yikes - I'm sure I'll acquire a few reminders from the battlefield during my builds.   ;)

Dude... You're doing this with SCISSORS?!!? Ö_ö

Are you crazy? :D

I'm actually blown away by this build. But scissors? You really must be Chuck Norris... (Either that or I am overestimating the importance of the scissors in the pictures ;))

Wow! This beauty is moving right along. I must confess that I was never a fan of the "Five Doctors" console, but this build is starting to sway me. (Not that I'll ever build one - model or full-scale - but I am starting to appreciate the beauty of it.)

As for those scissors... my wife has a couple of pairs just like that which she uses on her craftwork. Those are "precision" scissors; you'd be surprised just what kind of intricate cuts you can easily make with them!

Amazing build, Nate! "Rock on!" -Rocky Hardcastle.

I'm starting to realize how cool this model is.

After I finish all the shelves on the console I want to rodo a couple of them - to make them look better

Wow, I am in envy of the precision and accuracy you are achieving!

Did some straitening for some of the shelves on the console.

Well at this point I needed a bit of a break from the top of the console so I decided to turn my attentions to the base again.

I wasn't sure if this was going to work out very well -

I was pleasantly surprised.

Without intending to, I seam to have worked in the Persian Flaw into my work.
there is a side to both the base panel and a top panel that due to some minor imperfections (that maybe only I care about.) Will be as though it were the dark side of the moon. Forever obscured as the far side of the Console - that part that faces the scanner. lol

This has determined which panel will have the door control and the Recall device indicator.
