Hiya all....

I've managed to land myself a custom build of a future Doctor's sonic. At the mo, I'm gathering information, and researching casings and how they are made.

I have 6 months to build, a low budget and any machining work will have to be outsourced. I am considering a build from brass and copper tubing, soldering all the components and making it so the chap can still get inside to change the batteries.

He's sent me the inners - nice an compact. Yes, the JB's were yummy. Real Cadbury ones from the UK :)

Any and all suggestions welcome ...

A good start; a sugar high and dream. ;) That's what got me into collecting sonics in the first place too. Good luck and keep us all posted.

NOBODY COMMENTED ON THIS?!?!

This is gorgeous! Oh I LOVE a good copper and brass sonic. The engravings on the grip and that emitter! Oh that is lovely! Actual soldering too! This is GORGEOUS! Oh I may want to commission you for another, it's so classy! WHY is there no "like" button on this site?!?!

Now that is a right proper sonic there, Sir. I recognize some of those parts from the hardware store. It looks as if a local locksmith may have been robbed as wel! :lol

Beautiful sonic. Worthy to be held in any Doctor's hand!

Seems that McGann should have you make one for him, instead of the monstrosity he carries...

Agreed! I like Weta but that thing is just atrocious! This sonic is just beautiful. I absolutely adore it!

I've been away - busy on other things.

So kind are your comments :) Apart from a few components, it was completely scratch built.
I have a sister one of these to finish off and keep as a show and tell.
