Modeling Extra: Weathering a TARDIS
Yes, a most unusual project came across my workbench this week. I was comissioned to accurately paint and weather a classic piece of Science Fiction: Dr. Who’s Interdimensionally Traveling “TARDIS” It’s about 6″ by 6″ by 12″ in size, and beautifully crafted out of Mohagany, Basswood, and Balsa.The beautiful carpentry was made by Ben, a friend of mine, and the first photo is how it arrived in my shop, all ready for primer and paint. It’s a heirloom piece from wife to husband, and inside contains a hand-made pop-up book of memories they shared over the years, with a Dr. Who twist.
