Whenever you post progress on your build everyone that likes your progress should give a Karma Point!! I have been working my butt off and I only have 7 points. I do not feel the love here  :(

Scott


New rule?  Really?  I don't remember making that rule...

Karma points at at the discretion of the individual, I'm not a fan of telling anyone when they should or shouldn't be given.  I do take an interest if people start smiting each other's karma, but apart from that there's no hard and fast rule, including liking of build progress = karma.

However, in this case.... post a picture of yourself in front of your progressing TARDIS holding a piece of paper with "karma please" written on it and I'll give you 5000 extra karma points... ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for the Advice Atomic!

I definately plan on building the roof with the walls intact. I probably will have to relocate from the Garage to the backyard and cover with a tarp.

PS... THANKS to All that boosed my Karma :)  Not really sure what good it does me but I am feeling the love.

Well I finally had a chance to put a good day of work on the box. Today I struggled with hanging the Doors. Wow it is amazing when you think you built her plumb, level straight etc. but when I tried to balance the doors one side just wouldnt be level straight across with the other door. I got clever so nobody could notice. I extended my 3 step lip down a quarter inch so it serves a dual purpose, door stop and you can't see the imperfection of my build. How you professional prop builders do this??? My hats off to you!

This is a shot with the Sign resting on top of the wall. Sign Boxes are next but I wanted to get a glimpse of what she will look like with my sign on.

I like this shot with the Doors hung and the Pull Sign in place. I think I will need to rip the wood a tad so the wording isnt as tight.

Fabulous!. This is really making great progress! The doors were a pain for me too! I made some shims to place under the door and used 3 hinges on each side. It is also the mark of how straight the TARDIS is when the doors go in!! Mine were OK, but not perfect :)

Looks fantastic gemini!  I can't wait to see more.  BTW, how has the weather been down there?  Has it been too cold to work outside?

Thanks for the encouragement!

Yes it has been cold down here too. I suspect we both are having the same cold snap. Lows have been in the teens and 20's. This weekend we got up to 45 during the day but the wind has been brutal. I bought a ceramic heater with hopes the garage would heat up but my effort was futile.

After Thanksgiving I am moving into the dining room. Trying to solve the issue of the cold and the fact my TARDIS is going up between support beams in the garage I realised that my ceilings are 9ft in the house. Should work out just right without the Fresnel lens. Plus I will be more motivated to finish the project if it is sitting in the Dining room all winter.

Scotty boy,

The only thing I would be concerned about is the weight of the TARDIS on your floor.  I'd brace the floor from basement with supports.  I'd bet my TARDIS weights 1/2 ton or darn near that.
Just food for thought! ;) :o

Well like most northern communities here in the states the Snow is a flying. Time to move the TARDIS somewhere warm so I can finish the build in time for Spring I hope.

Rick, thanks for the Karma :)

Funny I actually had the same thought about the Trash bin. Good thing there are no Auton's in Illinois. Only Corrupt Politicians.

Oooh did I say that?

I had some trouble with a wheelie bin once.... The Wheelie Bin :)

thanks Crispin, coming from a video master amongst other things :)

It took a bit but at first I didnt like the wheelie bin. I kinda enjoyed having unlimited access to dumping my trash. Felt a bit restricted to only one bin. Then I discovered that all my neighbors are retired and use only 1/3 of their bins so on garbage day I just borrow some space if needed.

Also it gets Dark fast, took me 10 min to disassemble the TARDIS and the lack of daylight is noticeable.

But I am impressed that my $100 AIPTEK HD Camera I just bought. (Yea Im Cheap) Actually caught snowflakes in my cars headlights from 20ft.

EDIT:  Cute Video Crispin!

I know what it is like to loose a lot of time changing a design.
I had a great Idea for the lighting of the Police Call Box sign but after I got it all together it all looked wrong. I went back a reviewed how everyone else had done it  and went back and changed my whole design, I spent a whole day just making the change.. I find it is not completing the Tardis it is the journey getting there. your build is looking great keep up the great work.
