    Yes, I will admit, it's a very overdone topic, but in all honesty, I've come to see it as something that every designer should try out, and it's something that I've always wanted to design.
    I guess this is due in part to the large amount of simplified TARDISes I've seen, with even the most detailed ones lacking in the indented panels, jambs, and other minor details.
    Hopefully, I can try my best to do my own detailed job, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Can never have too many TARDISes. Looks great and I love seeing people make all the details 3D. Do you plan on overlaying a woodgrain texture to your images?

    I agree, especiall if you're adding the 3d texture details mssing from all the others. I cut out and layered the panels on my copy I built from the plans in the Dr. Who Tech manual years ago. Took forever, and was a real pain, but the result was worth it. Got crunched a while back, so I could use a new one. I'll be looking forward to this.

    Oh man, texturing has always been one of my greatest weaknesses...I'm not quite sure if I'll be able to yet, but I'll definitely give it a shot.

    Got most of the layered details drawn up. Funny how a lot of them are mostly white space...

    I too must add I've never heard anyone say "I am getting Tar..Dis.. Dr. Who stuff". Get it, Tar Dis work, Tired of Dis, Ah, I guess if you have to explain it, it's not funny.:p
