    These are flat out beautiful, and the design just fits perfectly into the look of the show. You should talk to them 'bout a job man. XD

    Seriously though, they're great. Definitely up there with your other work. Any concept as to their function?

    Very lush Nick! Too bad they would likely be the first thing confiscated every time the doctor got into trouble. Will you still be working on the series next year?

    Im not sure yet, I've been offered the contract but things with my own company are going well. If I stick with my own thing I'm sure I will get some work from Doctor Who. Also there is a lot going on in Cardiff next year so I think now is the right time to build my company.

    Wow. Those are GORGEOUS!
    Out of curiosity, what is that Sonic Screwdriver pictured? It appears to not have the interlocking teeth on the emitter head.

    Looks to just be an optical illusion. They are there, just hard to see at this angle.

    Hey, yea they are mine, but I have not put them there, some guy has put them up for auction and has not even got any. Not sure what his game is. He's also put a large mark up on them. There available on my Etsy shop,
    RUBBERTOE RAYGUNS BY THE DOCTOR WHO PROP MAKER by rubbertoerayguns


    The sonic is an MFX, I was kindly given it by Neil Gorton for helping him out.

    If there is enough interest I would put them on my shop, probably for around £80. I only made them cos work went quiet before christmas and I needed some spending money. I had them on ebay and they both sold.

    Those would be a cool accessory for the Doctor, perhaps as a multifunction display in the 'dial' that could act as communicator and TARDIS recall device, though it seems as though it was decided long ago the TARDIS can't be remotely recalled as it would get the Doctor out of too many jams...

    Love 'em! They are really cool!! Wonderful design and brilliantly achieved.

    Which type of crackle finish did you use on the 10th Doctor inspired one?

    Nice work, Sir!

    I'm a bit biased though, as I have seen them in the flesh, the pictures don't do them justice!

    I should be getting round to putting these on the Etsy shop this week, will be making 5 of each and then its probably sonic time for a few months.

    Indeed. I'm willing to wager a bright, shiny nickle that rubbertoe will produce the perfect sonic screwdriver.

    Any takers? XD

    @ Rubbertoe,

    Very impressive DW themed items and damned tempting if available....

    @ Jedibugs,
    In reading the post carefully, is the OP who I think he is?

    I'll second that. Though the big external battery would probably need to go in a watch configuration. I'd snag that on everything.

    Jeez I forgot how many components are in these things. I've put some more progress shots up showing all the pieces so far and one of my workshop where it all happens. Tomorrow I will make a start on all the electronics and finish cutting the leather for the 11th doctors watch. Then thursday and Friday will be the mass assembly day.

    All joking aside, it's awesome to see your shop, and to realize that you produce all of that awesomeness with the same sort of set up most of us use to try and replicate it. :thumbsup
