Hi Apprentice
I may be a little biased here, but I really like your windows. Yeah, of course they are the same as mine ;) Only better!
This is a lovely build, very Hartnellesque. The magical "Blue paint moment" approaches, methinks :D

Hmmm... my blue moment sense is tingling :)
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.

I fear you may be suffering from pre-mature expectation if you are getting a tingerling  :o  ;)

I had similar problems trying to source that elusive pebbled glass ... there is a modern equivalent available I got from my local door store, it's not 100% accurate but looks close enough that nobody who isn't a member of this forum would notice! It comes in yellow, clear, green and red. That aside, as I've said before on this thread, phenomenal build sir!!! There's no impetus in the universe stronger than love, is there?

Thanks Pod but doubt that I could swing it past Mrs A that I just HAVE to go to Aus to get some glass for the TARDIS  ::) I can source the glass in this country at a price but I fear the local "little darlings" might have a field day with their catapults  :'(
