PostSubject: PB's Various Builds   Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:30 pm

Having just joined the forum, I thought I'd show some of the things I've made over the years. Some of them will be things I've made for myself, while others will be things that I've done for other people.

I rarely get to keep my own stuff as at present, I have nowhere to put them.

To get the ball rolling, here's a CO scale 8th Doctor TARDIS that I completed recently.


Just putting the finished build in context with some of my son's toys, though the 8th Doctor is mine. I have to say, I do love the reflections on the windows in this shot, as well as the visible hammered glass panes there.


General shot of the finished model on a standard background.


Attempting to recreate one of the TV Movie promo shots... not terribly well it would seem.


As you can see, a bit of internal lighting gives the model some life.


One final shot for now, the full sized 8th Doctor TARDIS key is used to activate the flashing top light and the "Vworp Vworp" sound effects by waving it (contactless) over the roof.

I'm actually rather happy with this build and will probably have to make one for myself, but not just yet.

Thanks for looking, more soon if you're interested.

Looks beautiful, PB!

Which TARDIS did you use for it? The Eighth Doctor is the only one I don't have a CO TARDIS for and was curious as to what worked best. From the movie, it looks to be larger...like the Ninth/Tenth Doctors' rather than the Seventh's...

Thanks Sea Devil. This TARDIS is entirely scratch built from styrene, acrylic and a bit of brass.

If you were to convert one of the toys, I would suggest that you use the McCoy type.

That's very kind of you to say Sea, I appreciate that.

If you want to see how it was made, you can always take a look at my build progress album, I'll link to it when I'm allowed to.

Here's another Character Option scale TARDIS, this was made to coincide with the release of the first ever Classic figure, the 4th Doctor. It's a sort of idealized version of the TARDIS with a lot of the asymmetry taken out, but still made to look absolutely battered.


I rather like this shot, it almost looks full sized.


This shot has a sort of Death to the Daleks vibe going on.

Both images were not taken by me, they were taken by a chap who frequented various forums as "Baby Jelly." Lovely bloke. He's even allowed shots of this model to be used on three or four Titan Comics covers, so that for me was rather pleasing to see.

Ordinarily I don't usually build things to this scale, but it was kind of interesting to do. I usually make larger items.

Yeah, the chap taking the pictures did a great job with these shots. I think he's still doing web comics with them too.

How much do you charge for a TARDIS (i.e. 4th's)? What a Face What a Face What a Face What a Face What a Face

It's a fair old chunk of cash Amagon. These models take about 6 weeks to design, build and paint.

Here's a couple of very simple props that I did a while back.


This is the Terileptil mind control device that Richard Mace had around his neck in The Visitation. The "chrome" battery cell in the centre is detachable.


And these are a bunch of 7th Doctor TARDIS door keys that I cast up. The mould for these was taken from one of the screen used props, so not only did it replicate the quirks of the original, but also the defects (that is a good thing by the way), so I felt obliged to replicate them in the same way that Mike Tucker did them for the show back in the 1980's.


Peter Capaldi received one of those castings that I made. Here he's presented with it during a break in the recording of one of his stories for his second season. He was a joy to chat with and he seemed thrilled with the key, given its heritage.

I've just realised that I need to go a photograph some more of my stuff... oh, that's always a chore.

Thanks for looking.
