I'm currently in the middle of the rigging stages of the dh 2 and its testing my patience to the max !

Fearing a major meltdown I decided to start this kit along with the Daleks in Manhatten set to give me something to work on while I regain my composure and I can use it as a count to ten build when the rigging starts to do my head in .

Here's the box ( pic found on tinternet )



The reason for the shanghai'd pic is because some time back I needed a box to package something I sold on eBay and the good Doctor's box filled the need perfectly ( what with it being bigger in the inside )

So all the Bob's and bits ended up in this one



I didn't take pics of all the sprues ( there isn't much to the kit to be honest ) but heres one with the lid off

These pics are from a few months back and I can see how much better my hands were back then compared to now (sigh ! ) but such is life me old muckers things could be worse and at least I've still got lead in me pencil lol


Work started on the console which is moulded entirely in clear plastic ( I don't need time travel to see the future will involve masking ) The fluorescent green bit in the centre of the tube is a piece of paper supplied in the kit that you have to roll up and shove inside




Gave all the parts a quick blast of clear green ( sprayed on the insides )



Then a quick blast of clear blue concentrated around the edges



A quick looksee with the centre tube and green paper

I wasn't too confident how well or not it would show with the clear green paint but it looks ok ?



I don't know what this part is called ( I keep thinking of it as an umbrella ) but it sits on top of the time rotor.
It's the blue bit in the background of the above pic
I gave it a base coat of deck tan and then lightened it for high lights and darkened it for shading



This bit goes underneath the console and has what looks like cables moulded onto it so I gave these a quick coat of semi gloss black freehand with the airbrush



The above pic is shocking lol. A bit easier to see in this one

Held up to the light the dog can see the rabbit. Incidentally the areas on this piece that I so carefully masked up, end up behind the legs
( Gordon Maybe a moron but I'm a complete shobgite )



And the console top. I backed the clear paints with a thin coat of white as they lacked depth but it still allows light through



More dryfit/looksee shenanigans ( it helps bulk the thread out a bit if nothing else )



Legs and skirt wire thing attached

It's hard to show what I did here but I'll try

I mixed a couple of drops of the base colour with Tamiya smoke, drop of black and a tiny bit of thinner and with the pressure set low I just pulled the trigger back enough to get it to spray a bit "spitty"



I got in really close with the airbrush to try and minimise overspray. The idea was to darken the tone and to get the "spittyness" to add a bit of texture amd age to the console
also got the hairy stick out and based some details in black



Then over the black with a few metalic colours to add a bit of bling me old son



And then ( yes you guessed it ) dry fit have a butchers, scratch the chin and pick the nose whilst thinking " what else does it need



I ended up using a bit of Vallejo rust wash around the raised details and a pencil to add some where and tear around the console edge

There is a printed cardboard background supplied with the kit to go inside the TARDIS so a couple of pics with the console in front to give it some context





The final bits of the console are the steps ( I think that's what they are )



And a dash of Alclad steel

I'm undecided on weathering them at the moment as I don't think much will be seen when it's all fiited into the box



More blatant padding out with unnecessary pics ( hey it makes the thread look busier and loos like I've done more work than I really have lol )



I'm thinking I can maybe hang some real wires about the gaff and add some more 3D ness to it

A quick mock up of the TARDIS and the forced perspective doesn't look too bad ( I honestly didn't think it would work ) when the door goes on it will restrict the view a little more I think as it doesn't open right back to the side wall



I'm certain things will end up a bit dark once everything's in and the lids on so I'm toying with lighting it up.

I did a quick test just to see if the console would allow enough light through



It's not too bad



Getting the LEDs in will be easy and I don't have to worry about hiding wires as the real TARDIS has them all over the place but getting power to them and hiding the battery pack will need a bit of thought.
The roof of this has batteries in it as this kit has a light and sound feature but I'm not sure how easy it will be to pinch a feed off of that, I think I will need to investigate that

Made a bit of a start on the Doctor

The head has a block moulded onto the bottom of the neck



And is designed to trap between the 2 halves of the body ( like the figures in the Wallace and Gromit van kit )



WARNING RECYCLED JOKE AHEAD !

A quick bit of surgery was required

"Aaaggggh no no please etc etc !



Operation was a complete success and I was happy to see that he didn't regenerate into Matt Smith

Now I can paint his head seperately from the body and just glue it on at the end



The sculpting on the faces is really well done



It's a very good likeness of David Tennant and should come alive once the paints on ( fingers crossed )

I don't think Martha is quite as well done as the Doctor but again a bit of paint should help



The main problem with the heads is the material they are made from, it's a soft vinyl and removing the seam lines is a mare. I used a Mylar sanding stick to clean them up and although I was successful there is a hole in the side of poor Martha's face ( I assume from where it was removed from the moulding stub at the factory ) this will be difficult to fix.
I'm going to get some primer on and then I'll see if can use a bit of Mr surfacer to fix it



Managed to get a bit of colour on the Doctor. im using the pics in the instruction booklet for reference so went for a pale blue shirt and burgundy tie ( suits you sir )

The pattern on the lower part of the tie looks a bit haphazard. When I dryfitted the suit jacket none of the squares showed so I had to go back and add some as it looked a bit odd lol

Better with the jacket on
