TARDIS Measurements by MaydayParker TARDIS Measurements by MaydayParker
I had promised to post these measurements that I had used for my TARDIS Blanket [link]

All numbers are in inches (sorry metric people!) For sanity, I rounded all the measurements to the next makes-sense increment (1/8", 1/4", 1/2", etc.)

I made the "Police Public Call Box" stencil in photoshop using Arial, I think. But that was from scratch. I suggest you experiment with them for yourself, but Arial or Arial Narrow is the closest match.

The phone panel I got in a .pdf from, I think it was. But it's not hard to find. I just printed that off in full size and made a stencil from it.

Oh, and to make the panels seem 3D, take an inch off of all sides and replace them with slightly contrasting 1" strips of fabric, just make sure that the shadows are always in the same corners.

I'll be scrapping this later so bookmark it now if you want to use them!

Good luck!

NOTICE: This deviation will be moved to scraps at the end of May! Any downloads should be finished by then just in case!

Thanks for posting these measurements, it helped me compare the measurements I came up with for my blanket.

This is great, thank you. As soon as I got material for it and time (at the same time :P ) I will do a scaled down model of the TARDIS. Hopefully with sound and light effects.
Until then, my chosen weapon is Blender.

would this make a life-sized wooden tardis? or close to actual size?
MaydayParker Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
As close to actual size as my math allows. And it doesn't matter what material you make it out of.

Almost, that TARDIS base measures 60.433 inches or 1535 mm,
and from bottom of base to top of lamp is 120.079 inches or 3050 mm.
Someone took photos of the BBC prop plans & posted them online.
Hard to find, but they are out there.

Considering I did the math back in 2007, when the design was still being aggressively protected, and got those numbers using math, I think I can live with being a little bit off.

Sorry, was trying to say, Wow almost perfect. . .
MaydayParker Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Then, honestly, why didn't you just say that instead of pointing out I was less than an inch off the way you did? Your original comment, the way you wrote it, read like you were more criticizing my use of math over finding some obscure photo (that didn't exist at the time, I assure you) instead of appreciating the work I put into said math and getting close enough for most people to not care about the difference.

And, really, I feel the way you're calling it "almost perfect" when my results, using a fairly low resolution photo, zooming in and deciphering pixels that didn't have a really definite line at that zoom level, and using a skill most people bemoan having to learn in the first place, gave me measurements accurate to within an inch of the official prop, is less than a compliment and more of an accusation that I didn't work hard enough. I'm genuinely proud of that accomplishment, but the way you worded your message implies that I shouldn't be.

You are so right. I worded it all wrong.
I am sorry for how my words came out.
MaydayParker Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you! I really appreciate it. And I apologize if I came off as overly defensive, it is the internet after all.

tvfreakismine Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010

MaydayParker Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Come to think of it, I'm not really sure.

The outfit makes me think "Fear Her," but I don't think that was where he parked, or that was what she wore.

Honestly, I was just looking for an unaltered photo that had David standing up straight XD.
