Ooh, I was excited for a second  :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.

I COMMAND YOU TO FINISH THIS RIGHT NOW!

If this works, I command you to go shout at Matt to finish his fiberglass Crich box replica.

I'm looking forward to checking out your plans for this. It looks amazing!

For all sorts of reasons, TARDIS builds take a fair amount of time.  I think it's somehow appropriate.

Work has not let up for more than a year, now.  The TARDIS sits patiently in the corner. However, last week I tackled something I've been meaning to do, which is to have the Seal of Rassilon remade. When the original one was waterjet out of brass, the stream was slightly misaligned, and so it did not fit properly into its slot in the floor.  It was just an error on their part, so they've re-run it.  Here is the final brass Seal, in its home in the base. The Seal is centered in the floor; there is just something leaning against the back wall, which almost looks like the back wall itself. Going to try to make some progress, however slowly, each week.

Wow, Mike. That is a thing of beauty indeed!

Been enjoying your YouTube channel btw! It was me who asked you about "We Close Our Eyes" in the comments  :D

Ah!! Right on.  Well, glad you're enjoying the channel, and the build!

Just wondering, What's the status of this build?

Time is relative.

The TL;DR status is this: It was stolen, and I'm trying to get it back.  It's a long story, and not that interesting, just a lot of drama.  But I *did* manage to get all the master fiberglass moulds back, and have everything I need to build a second one, if need be. 

Incidentally, I'm making these out of mahogany with inlaid brass:

:( Gah.  That's terrible. 

There are people far more technical than me, so I won't definitively say, but we had to change the board software--I think after your last update--so I don't know that it's possible.  Or maybe PNGs aren't a recognized format.  I don't know.  And I'm so busy these days I never have time to experiment with things like this.  Again, hopefully one of the more tech-savvy folks will jump in with a more helpful answer.

Mike, Thats terrible! Sorry to read that and I hope you get it back soon...

Thank you. Yes, the wheels of justice turn slowly.  I'm holding out hope that the old girl's returned, and in one piece.

I'm so sorry!, I hope it's returned soon.

Any update on the old girl, Mike? Has she been safely recovered??


mverta

They say the wheels of justice turn slowly but surely.  Slowly I'll grant you; not so convinced about the surely.  Lawyer's still working on it.  I'm concerned the thieving party is stalling because they damaged her; can't get a clear answer. At least I have all the fiberglass moulds here.  I really, really don't want to have to start over, though. Anyway, as soon as I know, you'll know.
