Inside The Spaceship...

or the Edge of Destruction if you prefer...

a kind of amalgam of the classic TARDIS primary control room:
the console is an OOP resin model by Ainsty that you may be able to find somewhere (nudge nudge) and is a fair copy of the mark 3 console used during the 4th and 5th Doctors run - I went with a pure white console as opposed to the silver of the original so it leant itself more to the other eras... the walls are a prototype space ship interior by a company that shall remain nameless (although I'm sure someone will know and blab - I just figure there's no point bothering the poor man if he isn't able to do production versions as planned - of course thanks due for letting me have them) - they aren't an exact match for the roundels, but then again, the roundels were never an exact match either (being at various times photocopies, salad bowls and all but none existant). Having recently watched the Planet of Evil, these are actually much more interesting...

the size of the room again is more in keeping with the Hartnell era as opposed to later eras, but allows for better figure placement... the interior door has a door on the other side, should I ever progress with my vaguely planned dungeon crawl interior, but for now this is more of a display piece I guess... I have an idea for a piece to cover up the wall monitor with that strange transporter pad affair visible in the 1st Doctors TARDIS, but that may keep for now... the hat stand is made from plastic rod and bits of a plastic lettering set (O's, R's and J's if you must know) - other furniture will no doubt be added as time progresses... which seems in keeping with the Doctor really...

took far too long to finish this really, but that expanse of pure white is a real bugger to do and I had to take a break from going snow blind...

Where's the Doctor figure from?

classic series figures are from Black Tree Design

I don't know if I've said, but I'm incredibly jealous of this. I have an Ainsty console, but it seems to have little dividers between the 6 sections. It looks like yours doesn't have them. Were those flash, or Ainsty just trying to make it different enough to not be sued?

not sure, can't remember to be honest.
