It seems plausible, but the lefthand picture could well be transparent lettering on a frosted background, like the front sign. The lefthand picture has too much contrast to tell whether we're looking at clear glass or black paint.
I had thought it was the signs on the sides that were painted, or am I imagining things?

I knew that the 1/3 scale model made an appearance in Claws of Axos:


But I hadn't realised until now that it also appeared in Carnival of Monsters:



Anyone know if this was its last appearance?

Does anyone recognise this? I wonder why the top sign's the way it is. Someone just liked symmetry I suppose.


EDIT: Ooh, I've just done my first clickable thumbnail and it worked!

Quote from: purpleblancmange board=newbury thread=1113754603 post=1117233889Just recently a number of new members have asked on how we tell the various props apart... well, like this.  Enjoy!


Just found this thread and this awesome diagram :)

Just thought I'd add that in 1966 (according to the telesnaps) the box seems to have a flat roof for Power Of the Daleks. :)


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.
