    Apr 24, 2013, 8:02 PM - David Tennant Tardis Paint Color? #1

    I am building a 1/6 scale Tennant Tardis. Is there a definitive paint color (can) to achieve the exact look of his Tardis in Doctor Who?

    I'm pretty sure there isn't a definitive color, but generalfrosty sure has a nice looking one he's using on his build.

    Your right! I haven't checked out that thread in a while, still trying to figure out this new website LOL!! His paint scheme is amazing, I will try to duplicate that on my 1/6 Tardis. Thanks Philip!

    I don't know how accurate this information is, BUT...

    edit: I just found a discussion about that image...
    2013 Tardis Paint as advertized on Facebook.

    The thing about it is that it changes quite a bit when you add the weathering. If you're doing a 9/10 box, there's a lot of weathering.
    Here's what I'm talking about (this was on my full scale version)

    When you consider how different color codes, etc. vary from company to company and country to country, it's very hard to find the exact color.
    I just eyeballed mine. Found a color I liked and went from there.

    I used the exact colors genalfrosty had in his thread, and I think they turned out pretty good. It took me 11 days to build 3 of these. Exhausted is an understatement.

    Home Depot Sapphire Lace is what I used to paint my TARDIS door:
    BEHR Premium Plus Ultra 8 oz. #S-G-570 Sapphire Lace Interior/Exterior Paint Sample-S-G-570U at The Home Depot

    Weathered it picks up the darker color and is about a perfect match.
