Doctor Who Project


In honor of both the passing of actress Elisabeth Sladen (aka Sarah Jane Smith) and the beginning of the new Doctor Who season on BBC America, I decided I needed a TARDIS. Well, two more TARDISes, actually, as I already have the not-TARDIS manufactured by Miniature Building Authority for 25mm.

Or would the plural be TARDII? Whatever.

I started with the 6mm one. Not quite done, but I am happy so far.

Side elevation

So I am making a TARDIS for 6mm and 15mm, just to drop one on the table as scenery on occassion. This one is close to done. I based it on plans online to build your own police box, then scaled it down accordingly (roughly).
 
I am sourcing figures now. As far as the Doctor, I will probably go with either Tom Baker (and Sarah Jane) or David Tennant and Rose (Billie Piper is such a hottie!). I'm leaning towards Baker, because he was the one I started watching back when, and he has K9. I will probably have to scratchbuild the K9. I love K9.

  1. It's not Latin, so TARDISes would seem likely.

    Or TARDIS might be the plural of TARDIS.

  2. Like deer, or moose?

    Always wondered why a goose becomes geese, but a moose never becomes meese. English. Daft language.

  4. Love seeing somebody else doing Dr Who related models - keep up the TARDIS building.

    I'm planning an interior for a Dalek ship and Cyber tombs soon.

  5. That's nice work in such a small scale, I take it you will have to scratchbuild the figures aswell.

  6. Thanks for the nice comments.

    I have seen the Steel on Sand blog. Very much an inspiration for this project.

    For figures, I am looking for civilian figs. I heard of using an Old West figure in 15mm for Tom Baker - broad brim hat, long coat - and scratching a scarf. Turn the gun into a sonic screwdriver (or a bag of Jelly Babies).

    K9 is pretty much a scratch job in anything but 25mm.
