Great idea for the dome... Wish I would have thought of that one. I used a top of a push dome light for a closet. I looked at recessed lighting housing caps that are domed, but I had bugger the thing up to get off. Nice colour too!

Looking good - it'll be even taller on a base.
It's very quick, but could be dirtier... some dilute black paint rubbed on with a cloth is good for that weathered look, if you want to go that route, but start at the back first if you try that - it's easy to put too much on.
You could do what they did in the 1996 TV Movie for the scene where a police motorcycle drives through the TARDIS, you keep the center of the base open and only building on the sides. Does that make sense? Bill Rudloff
your build is coming right along look nice. i gotta agree with "the scarf" it could be dirtier another way you could make a base is to add it on like moulding.... please excuse the crudeness of this drawing but it's the first thing that popped into my mind when i read your delima
Thank you Atomic, I had that thought in mind too but I'm just going to leave it. No one will be looking down.
So the sign boxes are complete and the "St. Johns" badge in place:
Once we get it built in place, I'll paint a couple of coats of black wash over the whole thing, and for the inside (and the door that serves as the back wall) will be blackest black with "Bad Wolf" written in blood red.
Your build is really moving along nicely. Those sign boxes look great! I like what you did to the St. John's badge too. Nice personal touch aye...
For the weathering, I completely agree with Crispin. It is quite easy to put too much black wash at first. It took me one panel to figure it out myself, which happened to be my front doors and they are bit over weathered. The side panels turned out wonderful. I would suggest starting on the back panel first and proceed to the other panel afterwords. You'll just get better the more you do it..
