Excellent looking console and sonic screwdriver. Is that you working on the console? Also with the TARDIS shell, that's still the prototye, not a final production model, right? Bill "the Doctor" Rudloff

Lovely work, all looking amazing!
I do think, and it's just my opinion, that the spacing is out on the lintel signs for the TARDIS exterior... the space between "Public Call" and "Box" seems to large. Whether this is from the photography angle or not I don't know.
The closest thing I could find to demonstrate what I mean is a Once Upon A Way Police Box in Wetherby - credit for the photo goes to me, as I took it whilst I was visiting it! Hopefully you can see the much smaller spacing between the words...
and if you need it from theTV prop itself, here it isjust prior to it's butchering... er... refit in the War Machines, courtesy the DW Image Archive at shillpages with a reasonably clear lintel sign shot. Hope this demonstrates what I'm trying to point out... I think it's because on your one, the "Public Call" is too small and the letters are too thin. If they were beefed up as per the prop and the real box, it'd eat up the gap and it would all look spot on; remembering it's only the PU of public and the C of call that are over the centre door divider.
I agree with Dale. There's something not quite right with the lintel font and spacing. I've attached another reference pic of the Brachacki prop if that helps.... (Also note on this pic that the door panel frame ia also white, though this did change from story to story)

First of all let me make it plain, I think the workmanship on these models is excellent and my comments are in no way a personal criticism and no attachment or offence should be taken.
At the rather large price tags attached and with all the hype thats going with them they had better be accurate too.
Just a quick one though, Hartnells Tardis the 'Brachaki' prop did not have a door handle. Hmmm?? There are other inaccuracies too that are apparent on the pics of the model TARDIS on the web site. If the idea thats its a 'generic' TARDIS then surely it ceases to be a Hartnell 1963 prop replica and shouldnt be advertised as such?
I wonder what will make it to final production?
Its lovely model. I would like one in my collection! Chris E.

Sometimes Chris, you need to add an extra detail in order to do simple things like shut the doors. It's certainly a Hartnell TARDIS, it's got the white window frames and the correct door sighn and St John's badge, so it's not breaking any description of any kind... it's just Hartnell's TARDIS with a door handle for making the owner's life a little simpler.
