Good find... Were you able to get a larger scale copy? I tried and the link appears to be broken.)

It would be interesting tosee what the dimensions are?

For those who are unfamiliar with PeteD on these boards, Pete was the original Police Box History website guru before KiwiDoc continued with it.  So the man knows his stuff.

After the overwhelming response to my first draft (ha,ha) I thought I'd post an update...

Great stuff, looking extremely good, very professional!

I don't know where it will help, but the bottom roof stack, in imperial measurements was 4 feet 1 and a 1/2 inches in diameter... according to the plans.

Thanks Dale!



Is that the measurement I have at 49.25?
I don't seem to have that measurement on my version of the plans.
Here's a blank set of plans for anyone that wants to fill in dimensions;

isn't that interesting? The windows on the Met Box are in fact exactly the same dimensions as the TY-J........
11.75 x 14.75
Hmm....

I've often wondered if the pillars on Yardley-Jones  and the Brachacki  are the same size as the original Met box too.
I always thought the pillars looked a tad skinny on the plans I've seen.

Fantastic work anita very inspiring work. I think the corner posts on both the season 18 box and the Brachacki box are 6 inches wide. Not sure of the height though.

I measured the pillars on the Codsteaks and when scaled up they appear closer to 7 but I'm unsure about the accuracy of that particular model.

I'm going to do a top view of the Met box next and I'm trying to find out how deep the doors are in relation to the pillars. I do know the door panels are .75 deep though.
Does anyone know how close the 46.25 and 43.25 measurements are?  Now I know the 49.50 measurement I'm thinking 46.50 and 43.50 respectively - can anyone confirm or deny this?
Once I can confirm these measurements we'll have the most complete dimensions around.
