Complete Console!

IT’S COMPLETE. No nitpicking still to do, no more coats of paint, the TARDIS console is done!

Sarah’s as excited as I am, as you can see.

I added one wire, two extra dials and some painted buttons, in addition to this little line of Circular Gallifreyan around the edge.

Not to mention the blue lights on the bronze arms! There’s also a little strip under the top bit on three of the sides. And the gold thing on panel 2.

As well as this little lever, which when it’s pushed down…

…gives you a custard cream! This is one of my favourite details on the actual TARDIS, so I had to include it on my mini one.

Whew. I looked back at previous blog posts, and this has been in progress for five months! Thanks for sticking around to see it through, I deeply appreciate all your comments. Where would you go if you had a TARDIS?

Anyways, see ya!

Custard Creams

I’ve been trying out a new technique for making miniature biscuits recently, my first attempt is these custard creams.

I wasn’t sure how visible the yellow cream in the middle was going to be, but it’s there!

Sarah spotted them this morning at the supermarket and picked them up because the biscuit tin was getting a little low.

I don’t think they’re going to stay in the tin for very long!

S: Can confirm, they are great with a hot chocolate. I agree, though any biscuit goes well with a hot chocolate in my opinion.

Anyways, see ya!

So Close

Panel 6 is done. DONE, I tell you!

IMG_4068_1

This loopy wire is black on the actual TARDIS, but I wasn’t bothered painting it, so it’s yellow now.

I wonder what the big red switch does? Or the quartet of little silver ones below? That’s been half the fun of making this – “ooh, I wonder what that does?”.

IMG_4070_1

Best bit is, I can start re-creating promo pictures of the TARDIS now!

Working the controls like a pro.

And the overhead view, all sides complete! I’m really happy with it, all the struggles with fiddly dials and wires and the ‘glass’ on panel 4 definitely paid off. Now it’s just nitpicking, and some extra lights and dispensers and such.

Anyways, see ya!

New Views

In-between TARDIS panels, I’ve been able to whip up a variety of new backdrops, first off being a large white brick wall, because the white brick backdrop I had been using was very small. Look how much larger this one is!

IMG_4057_1

On the back, I have some parquet wood, for flatlays and such.

Then, I made two backdrops for the views from Sarah’s apartment windows, as she’s on the top floor of a small apartment block.

Above is the view from the bedroom window on an overcast day, and below is the view from the living/dining window on a sunny day.

IMG_4060_1

As you can see, it’s a little windy today!

IMG_4061_1

Sarah was going to read outside this morning, but it looks too windy and cold despite the sunny skies.

Anyways, see ya!

Panel Five

Panel five of the TARDIS console is done!

IMG_4045_1

I like the switch and the wires behind the purple tube, they look really cool.

IMG_4048_1

I might add some buttons to the plain gadgets yet, but I think that’s for another day.

IMG_4047_1

Final checks on the dials. There were a lot of little pieces to wrangle for this panel, and lots of paint-covered fingertips!

IMG_4054_1

Now there’s just one more panel to be finished before the nit-picking stage, we’re so close!

“I’m off to get supplies! Be right back!” 

I’m not entirely sure that scarf complies with safety regulations, hanging there, but hey. It’s probably alright…

Anyways, see ya!
