Managed to get hold of two 4th Doctor and TARDIS sets from B&M, so the plan is to modify one of them to create an Eighth Doctor box (because I doubt we'll ever see CO release one proper).

I'm not going for ridiculously screen accurate but figured a new roof (probably 3D printed), correct decals for the sign box/PTO, and a lick of paint should give me something approximation like the mock-up I've created... As for colour, any ideas? The TVM prop looks completely different in just about every image I've seen of it!! :)

If you're willing to give it a try, the ship's lantern keyrings appear to have a suitably in-scale fresnel lense for the Character Options TARDIS props, which would help make the lantern look even more spot-on, with some scratch building. :)

The photoshopping really sells the concept. :)

Good shout - I had no idea such things even existed!! :D

I'm guessing you mean these.  Bit expensive though. I'll keep looking around to see if there are any cheaper sources.

Yep, those are the ones loris, though I'd suggest keep eBay bookmarked, as there are bounds to be cheaper options on there:
