It's a TARDIS mate!  It can be nearby with the flip of this and a crank of that...  Well,  unless it's the Doctor's... 

Seriously, it's  a big move but I'll still be in the States.  I have had the greatest of all Time Lords as a role model my entire life it seems, but have never scratched the itch of exploring this big ball of mud we live on.  I think it's about time to do that. 

You may have to pop round and see it before it moves.  The door is always open.  Well, unless it's locked and I'm sleeping, but that only happens once a day.  Or, unless I'm at work, but you get the drift.

Not much to add really.  Just added the sign boxes.  I've decided to light them with EL wire at some point.  Still need to order that.

First view of TARDIS as you come up the stairs of the house:

Just as you round the stairs:

At some point I'll go back and fill in some of the holes that I missed this go round.  I wanted to finish it in time for a local band's music video deadline.  Still don't know quite what to think about that. I'll post links when they're done shooting it.

Jaren, this TARDIS is awesome!  I love the shot of the 'coming up stairs' perspective... I agree with Atomicgraph, the filth wash looks great!

That's not the first thing you'd expect to see when you go up the stairs in someone's house...

"Where's the loo?"
"First left after the Tardis..."
My pilot's license? That's out back in the Cessna. Or perhaps you're referring to my license to kill. Revoked. Trouble at the Kazakhstan border.

I could give you the details but then I'd have to kill you, which I can't do because my license to kill has been revoked.

It was tough to land it there.  Good thing the chameleon circuit kind of works.  An extra couple of inches on the shell and it would have taken out that wall...

I'm lovin' the TARDIS at the top of the stairs.  I really wish I had one that would fit inside my house, but I decided early on that I wanted a really big TARDIS.  Hmmm, seems like a good excuse to plan a second build.  Can't wait to see the console room come together.  And I can't say enough how brilliant that custom console is.

Appreciate it Will!  I'm down with a sinus infection, so work has slowed to a crawl on everything I'm working on.  My third screwdriver project has come to a halt because of battery issues.  When it rains it pours.  Send some happy thoughts my way.
