Thats great thanks, I have at least two of the kits to build so those images will definately come in handy.

Default Welcome aboard

I was given one of these kits for my birthday back in March and finally got round to starting it this week. I have just finished the Tardis and I must say it looks like a good copy of the "real ?" thing I intend to display it on a small diorama along with the two figure when finished.

I have retained a copy of the picture on the left for... er... future reference.
Am I the only one bemused by the, ermmmm, anatomical accuracy of the Freema Aygeman figure and the perplexing omission of waterslide decals for the tattoo and shirt pattern?

Yes, I would have expected decals as well, considering this kit is probably aimed at young and/or 'casual' modellers - 'Dr Who' fans first, modellers second as it were. They're unlikely to be aware of the after-market decals w8cmp has mentioned. As for the, er, 'sculpt': IIRC, we've seen a naked backside in 'new Who', so maybe the fans expect breasts & buttocks these days!

EDIT: I was wrong - I recently watched the episode I was thinking of and the backside in question wasn't actually in shot.

Default Dr Who welcome aboard

As requested a photo of my build so far. Tardis builds up to be a nice model, I have decided to leave the windows clear for now. The two figures go together well but I'm having a a bit of bother mixing the paints to get a suitable hair colour. The mix recommended leaves The Doctor looking like he has a blue rinse do I'm having a re-think on that. I have also constructed a rudimentary base for the set showing them "parked" on a pavement with a bit of road in the foreground.
I have also included a couple of pics of part of my collection for others to have a look at.
When the Tardis project is finished I will post the finished article
Mmmm for some reason I can not add any photos Help anyone ?
Yes it works
!

Looking good Copernicus ! I really like the base , I'm thinking of doing a similar thing with mine . Having a bit of a modelling break at the moment due to work commitments , so my build is on hold . I've a bit of catching up to do as I've also been picking up the rest of the Revell Star Wars kits as well !

Coming along very nicely. That looks like a great kit. Nice collection too. You look like quite a few Doctors are turning up all at once, or you're having a police convention. My family of ST fans are very impressed with the ships.

Excellent work Copernicus, doing the pinstripe is putting me off getting this kit though.

What I found more curious was how bar a few, I have or have had virtually the same kits as in your collection at some point over the last 30 years, it's almost like looking at an old photo of my various homes.

Thank you for those kind words. The reason you find the kits familiar Knight1966 is that I am old ! Some of those kits Ive had since the 80's the oldest one is an origional Romulan Bird of Prey. That goes back to the very early 70's The oldest Police Box I have is a 1950's Dinky box that I've owned since the mid 60's.

Nice, I saw that on cultman and wondered who had done it. i thinks its a pity they didnt model the Dr in a more natural pose, would have made for a bigger choice in dioramas
