Thanks for that - it took a lot of trial and error to get it looking 'right'. There's still room for improvement but I've started other projects - some times you just have to draw a line and move on...

Cheers,

Simon.

I'm willing to bet there is one or two that actually work in the lock on the props door and the rest are probably just already cut keys they had laying around.

Mywife put the Tardis Console project on hold until we have a house with either a basement workshop or a garage I can build it in. The neighbors in my apartment building were starting to complain of the sounds of power tools and hammering.

The Sal of Rassilon you have is the one that Megatron did? I have one of those on my pocket watch and another I carry as a good luck charm. Curtis did a fantastic job on that.

Darn wives, stopping all our fun :D

I'd say talk to PropReplicator but Wayne's sort of retired, maybe Megatron can help you?

regarding that Tardis key, ive seen a couple different variations of that one, only a few slightly different, the spacing between the blocks etc, which is accurate to the Baker years version?

What's the deal with the HORRID deep cracked "leathery" texture on the grip... ugh.  :confused

[actually I am told that the texture is a feature of the rare FIRST issue of this toy. The first batch presold-out, making it relatively hard to find. Apparently the later runs did not have so prominent a cracked texture.]
[snapback]1209801[/snapback]​
I must have one of the second run and it's toned down quite a bit.

Yep it was made from scrap aluminium tubing I found. I used two sizes (one fitted inside the other which was lucky) and turned the ridges in them to add the details before spraying it with Peugeot car paint. I didn't try to get the porcelean sort of look as I figured that life was too short.

Cheers,

Simon.

The most accurate Baker version I've seen so far was a short release version that actually had the BBC copyright stamp on it from last year. eBay seller exe_libris carried several and I have one. You can see it in the desktop I made for myself at the bottom right. The upper left one is accurate to the key used in the 1996 as made by 800-Trekker. The reason it's screen accurate is because the production team for the 1996 film up in Canada actually ordered the prop from 800-Trekker and then polished up a few for on camera use and gave one to everyone involved in the production as a gift.
