Finally I've textured mapped the model using a "piece" of the Crich box;


For some reason I can't upload it to the Sketchup warehouse but if anyone wants to download the free version of Sketchup I will pm you the skp file, the file is less than 2 mb and when used in conjunction with the measuring tool you've got a complete 3d set of accurate blueprints.

Anita is your box based on a real police box like the crich box. Brilliant sketchups as always by the way.

My box is based on a real police box too.

On the contrary, your season 18 is a cracking looking Sketchup!
You also constructed it you the correct method with components as opposed to making each piece individually.
I made a Barachki box - can't believe how small it is compared to the Met box;

I know!! Check this out then!!!! Mine's teensy compared to yours. Lovin the Brachaki by the way. If you want to fix all the problems on mine please go ahead!!!
All you need now is a Hudolin, Thomas, and a Newbury and you could do a 3d usual suspects thing!!!
Couldn't resist Anita - sorry.....

You've lost me there - do you mean you have my original? I thought I deleted it.....
Told you I was thick.

You posted it here I think and I saved it - do you want it?



Will I make the plans standard (A4) blueprint size or a booklet like the Dalek builder plans?


What ever you feel like, I should think!

Lespaceplie has produced great plans of most of the earlier TARDIS boxes in PDF form, in an A4 format. Topics with links to these are pinned in the [ref board=77]plans[/ref] board. Other interpretations are welcome too, of course.

A forum is like stone soup: we only have what people bring - but people do bring nice goodies. :)



 I think I'm going to go with the BBC type blueprint size - makes more sense.

Rassilons Rod

Stone soup? *head scratching begins*
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.
