The Doctor Who Stuff 

To your immediate right is all that remains of the first model Police Box I ever made.  A single photo.  Made out of card sometime round 1988, it stood about 9 inches high and I can thank a severe bout of 'flu for its construction, since that's what I did during my week off work.  It had a working lamp that connected via two wires out of the base to a 9V battery.  I'd stolen the bulb from a road lamp, so it flashed.  Unfortunately since I'd glued the bulb in, once it popped I couldn't replace it.  I eventually gave the model away to my boss's daughter, because she was a Doctor Who fan.

Time marched on. Relationships came and went, I got married and grew older, kids and life intervened, and then for some mad reason, in 2003 I decided to try and build another one.

Way back in the 70s when I was a teenage Doctor Who fan, I wrote to the Metropolitan Police and asked if they had a copy of the original Police Box plans.  They did, and I still have the photocopy (looking a bit brown and faded).  I initially worked from this, but during the course of building it I discovered the Tardis Builders web site, a forum whose members are only interested in one thing - building model (and full-size) Police Boxes and/or TARDISes.  The rest is history.

The TARDIS looks like a Police Box doesn't it?  So why have I made so many different models?
