    This will not be a build thread, as the mini is all one piece. Instead this will be primarily about layering shades of acrylic paints to get the desired look.
    The mini is approximately 1 inch square by 2 1/4 inch tall, hince the Tiny TARDIS title.
    As it sits now, out of the package and washed to get rid of mold release.
    It's had a rough sanding to knock down the worst of the mold seams, I'll see what it looks like
    after primer to decide if it needs more sanding.

    Primer coats applied and dried, looks as good as it gets at this scale,

    and the painting begins, I start with pre-shading, in this case black in the corners and crevices.

    and a base made of matt board cut to roughly circular, and coated with CA to stiffen it even more, and the mini applied to the base.

    Once these coats dry, the color coats begin...

    The first color coat, Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue, light coats are the key here.

    Even with AV Model Color acrylics, the dry time to re-coat is still 1.5 hrs....

    Obviously the Doctor flew through a space anomaly that caused some "shrinkage"..! Certainly his screwdriver will fix this issue. ;)

    No, not really. Time dilatation only changes the speed of time. It does not affect the size. ;)

    Cast a Rubber mold of it, and make Resin key fobs out of it. It would be the first TARDIS smaller on the inside than on the outside!!! So small, yet all the details are visible. Very nice! :)
