I'm still pugging away at the 1/4 scale TYJ box - doors and windows were cut yesterday using the Pacer CNC machine and a tiny .5 routing bit. The Photo next to the Earthshock helmet should give you an idea of how big this thing's going to be...
I'm going to do the graphics using inkjet acetate and white perspex but I really can't figure out what the font is. Ariel TUR looks close but it's not dead on - any clues? I'd also be curious to know what the fonts and wording of the phone panel are... Does anyone truly know or has it always been speculative? I've found info on the real boxes but I can't find a thing for the Mk 2/3. Help!
There were two phone panels used on the Yardley Jones prop. One used a serif font and said: POLICE TELEPHONE FREE FOR USE OF PUBLIC ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE OBTAINABLE IMMEDIATELY OFFICERS AND CARS RESPOND TO URGENT CALLS PULL TO OPEN
The second phone panel was a combination of serif and sans serif fonts and said: (serif) POLICE TELEPHONE FREE FOR USE OF PUBLIC (sans serif) ADVICE & ASSISTANCE OBTAINABLE IMMEDIATELY OFFICER & CARS RESPOND TO ALL CALLS PULL TO OPEN
As well as the use of different phone panels, the Yardley-Jones Mark 1 also had two different door arrangements front and back, hence the confusion. One side the centre divide was on the left door, the other side being on the right door.
In the late Baker early Davison stories the right front window was fully glazed in pebbled glass, while the left opening door with phone panel, four out of the six window panes were pebbled.
Later on the prop reverts to the stanard pebble glass in lower right and left panes in each window.
