Looks like the 1st Doctor's Tardis, inside the 2nd Doctor's Tardis
A mixed-up non-conformist, trying to fit in.

Well, I don't think there's anything left for me to say that hasn't already been said by anyone else, but I'll give it a try anyway. ;)

Such a beautiful, beautiful build and well executed. You can definitely see the amount of thought and effort that has gone into your TARDIS, and I just love that weathered paint job - it doesn't look artificial at all.

It is safe to say that I am extremely jealous of this build!! :o ;D

Thanks people! It's been a lot of fun to do, and if people have enjoyed seeing it come together that's even better.

So what's the next project now you've finished this?


Making it bigger on the inside... :D

Can you tell us why your two side walls have the lower panels as removable panels?


Well, I suppose it wasn't strictly necessary, but the lower panels particularly did get damaged and repaired a few times, so I made the panels interchangeable so I could swap out replica damage and repairs.
There's an update about that in the build diary: http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=7174.msg93496#msg93496
I've found that having those panels easily removable as hatches has been surprisingly useful during assembly for lining things up and getting them bolted.

I have to say I really like this effect - it's sort of symbolic as well as being unexpected - as it's a reminder that the build is actually two Tardises... :) It's caused a lot of extra complications, but that's true of many aspects of this build.

I say! Well done, sir. Very well done! A thing of beauty!

Now...what are you going to change first?  ;D

Scarfwearer

Well it's going to need a new (lower) base for its usual home in a door way. The paint's drying as I write... :)

HA!  I had my "Face of Evil" moment.  I stumbled across this thread and wondered how I'd missed it.  Looked at the date and realized it was around when I was packing up and moving across country and figured that was it.  Then I saw that I'd posted in the thread.  "It seems I have been here before."

This has to be one of the most amazing boxes I've ever seen on this site!

So where's the box ended up now? Is it still up? ;)
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?

Scarfwearer

Absolutely! It's Standing In Position: http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=568.msg104121#msg104121
Spring here has sprung, the sun is shining, the weather is warm - so I'm hoping to spend lots of time in a windowless room getting Vitamin D deficient... ;) I probably should get some more photos of it too.

Yes please!


Can't have too many pics of your amazing TARDIS & console room.

Listen to this man. He has wisdom.

Well okay, here are some new pictures. The good news is there's 20 of them. The bad news is they're all strikingly similar... http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=8602

I wish I had a Police Box of my own. Closest I got was being in someone's Tardis at TupeloCon 2018.31065379_1855772184462679_6471058501387943936_n.jpg

I think if there's one thing better than having a Tardis, it's having built it.
My first one was cardboard (well, after the wardrobe...). The next was my first proper project with wood.
Here on the site we have all kinds, from fridge boxes to fibreglass - though mostly timber. And plenty of advice and encouragement.
So I'd say "go for it!".

Wardrobe?  :D
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.
