Has anyone seen the prop being used in the TARDIS tour of Wales?

The box is a mix of the 2005 box and Smiths current. Could this be Capaldi's new TARDIS?

The panels are not as deep set and the bulb is more like the 2005 box. Also the door sign is differenttardistour1.jpgtardistour2.png


I like the look of that one! It's not Capaldi's, as most likely Capaldi will use the prop newly constructed for the Christmas special (and likely seen in the Proms), but if I had to hazard a guess I'd suggest it's an old Tennant promotional box converted into a Smith, resembling the 7B prop in decoration.
The corner posts, base, and lamp all suggest an originally Tennant construction, whereas the colour, SJA sign and windows all show a superficial Smith conversion. The handles and door sign are interesting - although I think the deepness of the panels is a visual distortion - the chamfer around the panels is at slightly too large an angle, so the depth of the 90 degree edge seems shallower.

What is this TARDIS Tour? Seems intriguing! ;D
Isn't it how ironic that we have to think of solutions out of the box, in order to build our boxes a lot of the time?


The TARDIS tour is the box popping up at a load of different locations across Wales (bah!) for the 50th.


This is a 2005 promo box repainted as the 2013.  But the doors look odd in the middle, like a gap that had a extra bit added from behind.
