    Dead easy to make, bought a shadow box clock from the 99 cent store, picture frame wire. I took out the original clock hands in photoshop, and drilled a hole threw the back of the frame and cut a hole in the picture, done! Took ten minutes and was cheep.

    hi I didn't buy a clock for the 3 I made I just bought the clock mechanisms from eBay, just type in clock mechanism, then pick what size and style hands you want (depending on how big you get your doc and Marty pic printed) hope this helps :)

    Hello I got mine printed at 6" by 8" (inches) here are some pics of one of my spare pics with ruler as a size guide, I've also included a pic of the ruler in the very centre if the clock face to show the size from the centre out words (this will help you pic what size hands to buy if you make your pic 6" by 8") hope this helps :)

    A Huge thank you to Spiderstella for letting me use his photo. I then pieced together the border from scraps of pics I found scouring the internet as most that I saw said "To Marty Partner in time" and not "Partners in Time".

    I bought good ole ebay clock mechs with larger hands than I needed so I could shave them down to look how I wanted them too.

    I think I used a 4cm length, if you looks at some of my previous posts on this thread then I’ve pictured sizes of my print out with a ruler on the picture, hope this helps and remember to post pictures when you have made yours
