Building a Model TARDIS
Pose for the Camera, luv...
OK I haven't completely finished, as
I've still got the door handles to do (Stop Press: I've done the handles.
See further down), but the painting's done, so let's get out in the garden for
some posey shots. We start off with
Attack of the Killer Tortoise, followed by some standard Jungle shots
(it's the planet Kembel!).
Next the TARDIS materialises on a wide
featureless plain, somewhere on the planet Trampoline.
Oooo, look what's landed in our
Handles - Two pieces of copper earth wire from inside a piece
of coaxial arial lead. The glue should be invisible once dried. I
scored the part of the wire that goes inside the door, to give the glue
something to grip on.
The End...Or The
The Police Box now has a lock. This was created
by drilling a hole into the card with a gimlet, snipping off a small piece of
cotton bud, and covering the end with some of the gold foil from a Ferrero
Roche. I then squirted PVA glue into the hole, pushed the makeshift lock
in, and then touched up the edges with more paint after it dried.
Not too bad so long as you don't get too close.
So there we go. How to build a model Police
Box in just a month. I hope my modest effort inspires Dr Who fans and
amateur model-makers to give it a go. The rewards are...well, your own
model Police Box to fondle and look at every day! Plus you can do fancy
mock-ups like this:
Time to go.
