Bison Sneak Peek

Just a look at my next mascot project. This will eventually be an acrylic on canvas.

Two Doors and a Time Rotor

Here I have attached the door panels. The front and rear panels were attached with piano hinges to allow them to open outward. (Note: this is not the normal way for TARDIS doors to open, but it has happened on occasion. Most notably in "The Eleventh Hour" and "Castrovalva.")

Anyway, you will also notice I've added a middle strip of 1.25 inch lattice. On the front side the lattice is attached to the left panel.

I've also installed plexiglas or Perspex as they call it across the pond in each of the window openings. I have sprayed a light coating of grey primer to the back of each piece. This still allows for plenty of light to shine through from the internal lights to be added later, while at the same time obscuring any view of the interior from meddling Daleks or Sontarans. Each piece is glued in place, and I also used some framers points to make sure the windows don't fall out somewhere in the time vortex.

The Doors

As you can see, I had a little help from Jack Harkness at this stage. You may also notice there are six identical panels. I skipped the last two since that side will be facing the wall.

Each panel is made of 1x4 cedar boards with a solid 1/4 inch luan plywood panel. A hole was cut for each window opening. Later each panel was routed with a bevel tool to add dimension.
