    Aug 9, 2007, 3:14 AM - Doctor Who - "Gridlock" Mood Patches #1

    I'm on a Doctor Who prop spree at the moment. Anyone thought about the 'mood patches', from the episode Gridlock? I had a feeling they would be simple to make, but I have no experience with this kind of stuff.

    Anyway, here are the graphics for the patches (gotta love the concept art section of the BBC's Doctor Who website!):

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/galle..._2007/11.shtml

    All the white areas on them are transparent in the episode, so maybe they can be printed onto something like that. Anyone have any ideas how these could be made?

    Transparency film should work, but you'd have to flip the designs for printing. Also, not sticky.

    Speaking of Gridlock concept art, did you spot that the base for this 'fake' gun:

    Milo & Cheens' imitation blasters.

    Is one of these?:

    Nerf 'Nite Finder'.

    Oh, fantastic work, Coz! I noticed the concept artwork for the gun the first time around, but I just assumed it was scratch-build.

    I'll see if I can get the designs printed onto transparency film. Thanks for the info.

    In wanted to start on a judoon scanner, thought it might be pretty easy to replicate, but then I found out that there gonna make one in the toy line, so it would just be easy to upgrade the toy version,since they seem to have made a pretty accurate version of the sonic screwdriver, I assume that the scanner will look pretty good also. But I am interested in the masters watch, wondering if they used a real watch as a base, or fabricated a version of there own?

    I do not think they are making that scanner, rather they are making the scanner/marker.

    The prop in the concept art was used by the Judoon commander to access he language.

    I know I'm a little late to this thread but, you could use "Window decal" paper. You can use it in your inkjet, it's transparent (anything white in a picture would be see through.) and it has a light adhesive on the back so you could stick them, without worrying about how you're going to get them off. Also, it's way cheaper then having them printed on vinyl.

    Or, they used to make this inkjet "tattoo" paper, that actually made a clear (where ever the white is) sticker that sticks to your skin for days. but it's kind of a pain to work with.
