I saw that model of the interior console room at the BBC Vis FX department, and if I remember correctly, the roundels were made from the plastic lids that you stuff into the ends of a cardboard tube to bung it in the post, to stop the contents falling out, if that makes any sense?
Can anybody else clarify that or am I just imagining it? Either way, I did see it!
Hi Jordan, I finally had a chance to read the whole thread and that's some great work you've done with this design. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do next with it. It does seem like you have some latitude with it and there is an opportunity for you to inject even more of your own creativity.

well the recoverd file is bieng updated and improved
oooh! This is really coming along now
And on revisiting the thread, I notice the "DWM spoof" image on the first page, once again. And I've just remembered a console I designed (half in my head and half on paper) at the begining of the nineties, inspired by this image. It had a holographic Time Column and touch sensitive controls. Not hugely original I know, but now I feel inspired to create it in 3D
...one thing at a time though, I think - I don't want to end up with a million projects on the go at once. (probably partly responsible for losing some of my stuff from time to time along with failing hardware - at least I have some CD backups these days
I loved the look of this console when I saw it dotted about in places around that time!
I see you've picked up on the Superannuniation services console that was used with Tom Baker - I have pictures somewhere of that console that I might pull out and share. I also have the original ads on tape, including an unedited interview with Baker about the adverts. I'll screengrab those if someone wants...
though I've been looking for that console for awhile, I'm sure I remember there being some nice big pictures of it somewhere...
I have to wonder what that time rotor would have looked like in flight. Perhaps a clue is that the inside mechanism bears a passing resemblence to a tiny warp core from Star Trek; I wonder if instead of physically moving (might have caused the console prop to wobble, as someone mentioned earlier) there would have been lights pulsing up and down inside instead?
I honestley dont know as I dont have any video files of it.
oh and the measurements so far I havent put them in a diagram yet
