After having a solid look around the site, and following many lnks to the various pages about the history of the TARDIS, I have decided to start with the original Brachaki prop.
I am building two Daleks at 1:1 and 1:3 scales, so it is only fitting that I build two TARDIS' in the same scales.
I've spent the afternoon studying the shape of the booth, and given that the originals apear to have been cast in concrete, will stick with the more traditional timber construction.
Like everyone else, I'm looking for a construction method that is quick, simple, and allows accurate reproduction by anyone with limited engineering knowledge or skills.
The full scale TARDIS will be used as storage for my 1:1 Dalek, so I will be using construction methods that render the structure lockable and weatherproof. The following blog will monitor that progress, and the progress of the 1:3 model.
In the pursuit of scientific answers, animals have been tortured for the past 100 years. They're still not talking. I'm starting to think they don't know anything.

Do make sure your dalek will fit before you get too far, and that the doors will open and close with it in there. My Season 18 is too small to store a dalek, even though it will *just* squeak past the doors.
It's called laziness zbignievhamson - I've worked out how I'm going to do the lightbox (so I'm not cutting the scalloped edges eight times while improving the waterproof nature of the design), and have it only once in its proper configuration, albeit without the final display. The renders had the other three lightboxes roughed out.
I'll rectify this over the weekend and redo the renders with the signage and decals.
