Philip Segal's book "Regenerations" might be useful I recall some bluepritny/design type things in there though the TARDIS Dims shown are not reliable so I wouldn't swear by the console images either.  Might be a start though?  We've seen a couple of members take on the task of an 8th doc conosle so they may have assembled the goods already if you can track them down - it'd be worth a hunt through this boards and also our old MSN groups.

Tony Myers built a replica for Dimensions on Tyne and put some photos on the MSN Rebuilders.
He's UKWookie on this board, but he hasn't looked in since December... You could try emailing him.

Did somebody mention my name? *lol*

The dimensions console was *ahem* "inspired" by the drawings in Regenerations but once the basic proportions were decided there was a lot of tweaking to get the thing to look reasonably accurate... the trouble is, I don't think we wrote down any of the measurements! I'll take a look through my old notes t see if any info survives, if that will help. As far as I remember we simply settled on a diameter for the console shelf section and scaled it all from there - I seem to remember deciding it was 6 feet but don't quote me on that!
