Oh very good start with your Engish Police Box, I have a TYJ design Police box, also I have a complete work shop manual as well as inventor 10 drawings if they are of any help.
What drafting package are you using?

We're starting on page 2 of the drawings - this will likely be a 4-page blueprint set.
I've already got my "Hero" Anchor lantern in hand and looking into getting the signs made.
Lumber has been ordered and we have sourced the hardware for the doors from the UK.
Pictures will come when they are available.
Excellent GF we need more Blue boxes in the world, and looking forword to your build.
Still working on the drawings with my pops. Two pages of hand-drafted plans done, two more pages to go!
I was wondering when you were going to make one of these. It only seemed logical. Can't wait to see it.
Drawings are now going to be five pages worth. Still working on them...
I did all my plans in SketchUp & they were just about as clunky as can be. Yours look stellar. I suspect you'll have a spectacular 'Blue Box' when you're done.
Well you tell him from one draftsman to another, that his draftsman skills are excellent, and are a work of art in there own right.
Everything is now completed with CAD, I use inventor 10 and it very much lacks that personal human pensile to paper touch. Very nice work.
So all the drafting work has moved to computers? I agree Rassilon, that personal touch is very important and they are indeed works of art. There is some serious talent that goes into drafting these things like this by hand, just like painting a mural or masterpiece. I'm glad to see your Dad keeping the art alive GF
Computers do some great things, but sadly it seems sometimes at a cost.
HA! Yes, yes we do.
This is going to be a lengthy but fun process. Big thanks to Rebelscum for not only is extremely thorough build thread as inspiration, but also the help he has provided me behind the scenes. I look forward to continuing on with this project.
Two more pages done - these detail the doors and roof. The last page is devoted to the Police Sign boxes.
Absolutely beautiful work. Can't wait till it leaps off the page into reality.
