I've been trying out methods for the weathering for a full-scale TARDIS

This version I have used poly filler with PVA glue. afterwards, I have sanded it down.
I've just sprayed it with primer and tomorrow will thickly paint it to smooth the finish.
I'm happy with it but it's a bit fine in its detail. This TARDIS has seriously seen Extreme stuff!

I think it's a little too much weathering

I don't know, I think it looks good, Scarfwearer went pretty heavily weathered on his TARDIS.   I think it lends itself well to the look.  Great job in my opnion.

Ah, there's the rub:  It's hard to guess from one panel what the whole thing would look like.  I guess the good thing is, if you don't like it, it should be pretty easy to sand it down until you get to a texture you like. 

The thing that I think could be interesting with this is how it would react with light.  If you just give it a basic paintjob with no weathering (darker paint in corners and low spots and lighter paint on edges and high spots) it could look pretty pristine on a really sunny day or an overcast day.  But on a day where you've got some shadows going, all those crevices are going to be darker and it will look all weathered and beat-up.  At least that's the theory I'd like to see tested.

I think it looks good. The paint smoothes it out a little too.

Heh.  When I saw the first pictures I thought it was for a full-sized build.  Didn't realize it was so small.  What will it be, 1:3?  Smaller?

Oh no it's intended to be full size! That's why I thought the details was a bit fine  :)
It's just a test on some scrap wood

This is how mines turned out. I've used similar methods to you.
Take a look at mverta 's  ongoing project thread. I learnt alot

Silly question, but are you literally mixing the two? Or is there another technique you're using or both mixing these and then applying them?

LOVE the tests in blue, it looks amazing if you ask me.

Thank you  :) Yeah I mixed the two
I've actually got some more update photos I'll add soon. I sanded it down a lot more and it started to resemble the Hudolin box's weathering

What a suspiciously convenient comment ;)

Haha  :D
Oh but you'd need to use more pollyfiller than pva or it gets to sloppy
